Semi truckers are the worst

SHARE: facebook Twitter icon Linkedin icon Google+ icon Email icon |  PRINTER-FRIENDLY  |  COMMENTS
I drive back and forth between Marysville and Lynnwood every day on I-5. This is not what you would call a long commute. While driving northbound in the afternoon, I have experienced intimidating drivers that are more often than not from Canada. These drivers are in semi-trucks. They will get right up on your bumper like you have no right to be in the lane they are traveling in. I have had them flash their lights at me without stopping.
I am not a slow driver and I try to give the truck drivers a break every chance I get, but these drivers are pushing the limit. Just one time I would like to see a state trooper pull over one of these drivers.
Is it not a law that you move left to pass? Why do you see trucks in the hammer lane? That is a no-no, yet they do it all the time. I understand time schedules and fuel costs and products to market, but what about the safety of other drivers?
