Oh man you had me till you said truck drivers are the best out. LolNot at all, but I have not had a moving violation since February 2, 2001 (19 years ago this week) and have not had a chargeable accident since January 1994. I learned very quickly once I hit the roads to let the impatient s'fing-ters go first. You could have been one of them I let pass. It's better to be a few minutes late to the delivery because I let a moron (you could have been one of them) go ahead of me than to try to race him in his four-wheeler versus me in my 18-wheeler.
I may have it entirely wrong, but was it not Christ who said, maybe to a soldier sent to arrest him, "It is you who says I am the Messiah." I do not know the exact Scripture, but it goes along those lines. I have never said, even unto myself, that I am the best driver out there. You said it (see your partially-quoted entry above), and in a snarkiness that transcends the written word.
Truck drivers are the best drivers out there. We drive over 100,000 miles a year; some over 120,000 per year and have very few accidents under the "total number of automobile and heavy truck drivers" per capita rate. Four-wheeler drivers run around 16,000 miles per year. Truckers drive six times as much, and have fewer accidents than four-wheeler drivers per year. With that said, I'll let my safety record stand as testimony to my ability as a commercial driver for the past twenty-six years. I have been out of work for eight months with sleep apnea. I'm now sufficiently-treated to go back to work. I have over 1,000 offers for jobs in my Inbox. Not too bad for "the best driver out there," so sayeth only you...
I drive 80-100,000 a year for work and ya e to deal with truckers on the road and at job sites. and can tell you without a doubt. Trucker drivers in general are the worst. Some are great like getting out of the left lane, and driving safely, doesn’t matter the speed safe is safe. But ever since you can get your cdl in a few weeks and auto trans any azzhat can drive. It’s amazing the **** I’ve seen after 15 years of traveling that much.
