Give big trucks room they need

To all you travelers out there, my concern is your blatant disregard for long haul truck drivers.

To the editor:

This is the last long weekend before school is back in. To all you travelers out there, my concern is your blatant disregard for long haul truck drivers.

That b-train you just cut in front of then slammed on your brakes to make a right hand turn all within a block. Let me tell you: Those guys are fully loaded and their weight is in the 23 thousand pound range. For him to stop requires additional space—they judge their stopping by the traffic in front of them.

I can only imagine little Johnny or little Suzy being crushed and killed by your stupid moves.

And if that doesn’t bother you, how about the people next to you being killed because the load is now on top of them?

Please drive responsibly and give the long haul truck drivers a break. They are the ones that deliver every item in your lives.
