I've seen so much travelling this country I have lost faith in mankind ever regaining common sense.

the story above of the car keeping pace with the vehicle beside is very common. What burns me up even worse is the number of idiots that refuse to use cruise control. they run up on my bumper, then blow past in the left lane. not even 30 seconds later I am passing them, then a few minutes later they either keep pace beside me or blow past again. one idiot in NE did this for 100 miles along I80, he would fly past and get 1/2 mile or so ahead then within 2 minutes I would pass him again. bet he fusses about how horrible his gas mileage is too.

another thing I see all the time is folks that will pass a semi then dart over in front of them and hit the brakes to take an exit. I just know i'll be a witness to one getting smoked one of these days.

Often they decide to ride right next to a semi when approaching an on ramp and the semi has no where to go when another semi tries to get on the interstate.

I have a topper on my truck with toolboxes in place of side windows so my side view is limited. professional drivers see my truck and KNOW where my blindspot is so they will give me a light flash when I can get back over. your run of the mill idiot will let me get clear of them and once I hit my blinker to get back over they speed up to right on my back corner.

if it were up to me there would be mandatory common sense tests before you are allowed to drive on any interstate!
