Not surprised by that Werner's truck. They've tried to run me off the road a number of times.

Common sense #1 rule of the road:

The larger vehicle has the right of way. Same for boats.

Scares with half to death when traffic slows down on the expressway, especially in inclement weather.
I got tagged once pretty good in stopped traffic, I nailed the gas and went onto shoulder when I saw a car not slowing down at all, they still hit us but lessoned the blow. I keep a close eye on any heavy vehicle, never know what could happen(and sometimes shit just goes wrong).

When I'm the last one in a line of stopped or slow moving cars, I turn on the 4-way flasher.
