I would never allow myself to be in there. i would stay back a few car lengths..

The bad true story of my former landlord on a trip and his wife's head was cut off as he stayed between two trucks and one changed into his lane.

I stay away from trucks. I hold back until the car in front has cleared the truck in the next over lane so I can pass it quickly. I do not care if the driver behind me is annoyed.

I am amazed at the idiots who drive in trucks blind spot for miles.. They are asking to die it seems.

I never drive next to trucks, and it was especially true when I had my motorcycle.

Cars will put themselves in that position at speed, and that's less than a safe distance between the Trucks. If the front truck needs to stop fast, car would be the Jelly in the sandwich...

Yeah, truckers should be mad. Since they get to shed their recapped tires all over the freeway and cause damage to all other vehicles. Oh, and they get to crack my windshield.
