jack_o_the_hills: I witnessed an event almost identical to this earlier this year on 480 by 77. I happened to glance into my rear view and saw a car get turned by a semi that was cruising in the middle lane. The driver of the car just decided he gots to gets into the left lane NOW, which is a common occurrence in that area - gets on and gets straight to the left lane , wait until you are 200 feet from your exit and attempt to gets to the right lane, fark whomever is in your way..  anyway the car was pinned to the front of the truck and I swear that trucker gave not a single fark for at least 3/4 of a mile and then finally slowly moved over and slowed to a stop. Before he moved over he didn't slow down one bit.
/Loved it!

Wayyyyy back when I worked at an Insurance Auto Auction house, one of our drivers came in and started laughing about what he'd seen on I-69 through the Flint, MI area... a woman had her car pinned under the dock guard of a semi trailer and was being taken on a ride to Port Huron. Apparently she was tailgating, and not respecting that she can't see what is happening beyond the truck, was shocked when the truck suddenly braked for something, and she went... pop... under the guard, and it effectively towed her car. We later learned from a news story that the driver made it all the way to the Canadian border before finding out she was there - and even funnier, she had gotten on the freeway in town to make a short trip two exits down, but ended up an hour away for her troubles.

Cars need to respect truckers... except in Ontario, where they seem to be major douchebags, in my experience.

Would have been more fun if he got over to the side and then just scraped the guy off with the guard rail.

ChopperCharles: Just because the merge lane ends, doesn't mean you get to blindly merge. You still have to do so safely. I see this kind of crap so many times -- usually people slam on brakes or swerve to avoid the merging moron, but trucks don't really have either of those options.


Yeah, it's the merging vehicle's responsibility to merge safely. Legally, the vehicles already on the highway do not need to do anything to "help" the merging vehicle.

Most of the time, it is some idiot who thinks it is OK to merge on the freeway at 40mph or less. These are the same idiots who spend all day in the cell phone lane, sorry, passing lane (some people think it is the cell phone lane), driving 68mph in a 70mph zone, parallel with some other person, getting upset with all the "morons" behind them, weaving around, flashing their lights and flipping them off.

It doesn't matter how fast I'm going... if I'm passing a group of cars, and somebody is coming up behind me, I get out of their way and let them go (if I can't safely move over, I speed up to do so). I don't get pissed that somebody is slower or faster than me, as long as they are courteous enough to follow the general rules of the road.

Another strange and annoying habit some people have is... when you pass them, because they are going 10mph slower than you, and return to the driving lane... only to have that person speed up and tail you. WTF is up with that? I also am amazed at how many people around here will drive 45mp in a 55mph zone, and continue at 45mph even though it changed to 25mph... Really? You couldn't be bothered to drive the speed limit when we might have not gotten stuck at the last three traffic lights, but now you are ready to mow down kids in a school zone at almost twice the speed limit?

/I have more rants... but this is enough for now

thesharkman: How did that car not shatter into pieces or spinoff. That's impressive.

Because this is not a Michael Bay movie.

deadsanta: That was some pretty good driving by the trucker imo. Kept his cool, moved the car over to the verge, it's like he had God, or perhaps an orangutan, as his co-pilot.

Not impressed with your identification of simian species:

I see a lot of this crap. It's even better when an 18-wheeler does it to a car.
