Iama professional semi truck driver. Someone told me to do one of these so AMA!
I've been an over-the-road truck driver and I'm currently a local driver. I've delivered to many different places, from downtown Chicago, to an Amish farm. I've seen everything from lot lizards to level 2 hazmat spills.
From what I've seen on reddit, the general consensus is that all truck drivers are assholes. I'd like to change that! Here is one thing I'd like you to know:
Most truck drivers think that guy in the left lane holding up traffic is a huge douchebag. Those guys aren't doing it to "protect you from a speed trap," they're doing it because their truck is governed 2mph faster than the truck next to them.
Ask me anything!
If you guys ever have any other questions at any time, hop on over to /r/trucking !
Edit: my phone is almost dead. I'll charge it soon. I didn't think there would be this many questions. I'll be back.
