I think that really depends on the individual. One job I had I would spend up to 8 hours waiting for back hauls then be sent home empty. I started to make my workday from 6am till midnight and sleep for 6 hours. And you know how much I like for people to be out of my way. Then again, if you have plenty of space for parking, it's not an issue! They will certainly reject the load. Or maybe you have a garage that isn't long enough to fit a truck.
Just seems unfair that he did that and is going to get away with it. The faster truck only has 2mph to get around, so it takes a while as it is. Mainly, the trucker talks and converses with other truckers. Also, please consider that having four-wheel drive doesn't mean you won't get stuck, it just means you're likely to get stuck much worse. Buying a new pickup will take a toll on your finances, which might explain why so many people seem to feel a need to justify their purchase.
Or is that only going to happen once a year? It irritates us just as much as it irritates you. I know 3 people who just bought one ton dually diesel pickups for the day they may get a travel trailer. Let me know what you guys think, and let's not get in to an argument about brands. Your gasser will be dead at 200,000 mi. Goal: sell trailer and trade truck back in on two economy cash cars maybe one will be mini van.
This story was originally published on July 31, 2014. Don't wait until the last secondto decide what you're going to do! It is personally my pet peeve to be behind a person going under the speed limit holding up traffic after work. There is never a good reason for tailgating, not even when the driver ahead of you is under the speed limit. The traffic builds up and slows down, far too many people on the left to get out of the lane its I-70 and 2 lanes. Now, a car designer is trying to imagine what Tesla Pickup Truck look like — love it or hate it? Let us know in the comment section below.
Thanks for dropping in and leaving your thoughts. Also, you get better mileage going a little slower, and there may be other reasons, rain, snow, darkness, fog, that may cause me to drive slower. Things started to change when I refused a run after maxing out my logbook. Seems to me people like you are the jackasses. Let's say that you, like Prius Man, have the budget to purchase a 14-year-old used car, and want a pickup for its work capability. Furthermore, trucks are huge dollar signs to a lot of people. If that makes me a jerk, then I guess I need to change my Twitter handle to ToddTheJerk.
I do not have to drive 70 mph. The guy flipped you the bird earlier? Eventually we were both down to 40mph and the car ended up on the shoulder and came in behind me. Or at least an affair with a Mini Cooper. Not only from flipping the truck over, but also from damaging the cargo we're hauling. Buying a new vehicle of any kind is a costly venture, but a new truck is always going to be very expensive, especially when you factor in operating costs such as fuel, tires and other parts.
I would never let other people decide what to drive for me, but it gets old having people assume your some sort of redneck or truckbro or get dirty looks from your more left-thinking classmates when you tell people what you drive. So here are a few basic questions you should to ask yourself when you're choosing a vehicle: 1. Are they going to pay for the ticket? If you are not getting your pay check because you are a few minutes late to a destination that is a problem between your terrible employer and yourself. I could have bought a good gasser in just the repair bills over a year and a half and I was getting free hoodies from my local rollback service for giving them so much business. The brakes will lock up the wheels, even fully loaded, so we can only brake so hard before the tires lock up. Anyway, I spent the rest of my drive thinking about other reasons why, were it not for horses, Roy and I would be going our separate ways.
Unfortunately, the few bad people that are out there prohibit us from taking any chances. Feel free to vent in the comment section below. Seriously, even if you're a racecar driver, you still want your vehicle to be as efficient as possible. Plus, if something happens where we need to make a quick decision, we have more options to work with. In no particular order, here are the 20 worst things about diesel trucks: 4.
I think it is simply selfish and I question if the driver thinks they really are the only person on the road. Why do truck drivers take curves so darn slow! Then he went around us and was half in the left and right lane leaving us very little room. For those of you in third-world countries who have yet to discover the wheel, let me explain this concept. Be careful getting too close in traffic jams though. How would you feel if every trucker adopted your way of thinking? They do not allow ample time for a fully loaded truck to stop. Enemies who look at truckers and their big rigs as a nuisance of the roads and something that just simply slows down their ever increasing, fast paced way of life.
Well, truck drivers do pay attention to those signs. Please, if you can help it, don't pass us on the right. You talk like everyone should have knowledge of all tire specs. Most of the time, less is more. I learned a good lesson on this one of my first weeks out. But it is well known that the left lane is a passing lane so it is expected to see speeds up to 80mph. It hit 100k driving to trade it in it cost me 8k ones year to for injectors and new turbo that lock up.
