This is getting to be a common sight  on our roadways it seems. Some will blame the speed limiters or E-logs ,while others will tell you it’s a lack of professionalism in today’s driver .  Traveling in this fashion is dangerous to everyone on the road way. All three of these drivers show a total lack of what it means to be a Professional driver !!

 WHY do I think this way… It’s simple. The driver to the far right (Granny Lane)  was traveling slower than the truck currently in the middle lane. Problem is were talking about probably a half a mile to a mile per hour slower. Then the truck to the far left decides they’re going to pass as well. I’m guessing by this picture they were all traveling at close speeds. Next thing you know you have 3 trucks holding up traffic , a recipe for disaster.

A Professional Driver would have realized this could potentially cause an accident, and slowed down to allow the pass. Instead you have 3 drivers all rushing to get by each other. What a lovely image for the general public to see on a daily basis. If you want respect and to be treated like a Professional Driver …act like one!

 

There’s no doubt this won’t be well received by my fellow drivers, but it’s as I see it from the drivers seat.
