The big trucks can just go ahead and get upset as far as I'm concerned. My safety and the safety of my other occupants is paramount.
I recall a jerk in an 18 wheeler several years ago who was tailgating me in Arkansas and eventually laying on his airhorn because he was "stuck" behind me at 60 mph in a 55 zone.
When he was finally able to pass me, he intentionally tried to run me off the road. I managed to brake and drove on the shoulder to avoid crashing.
A few miles later, there was a weigh station. I followed him into it. I then got out of the car, approached a State Trooper who was standing outside the office, produced my badge, and asked the trooper to take the driver into custody. He was convicted of reckless driving and 2nd Degree Assault, lost his CHL and his job.
The roads are to be shared - peacefully - not a place for reckless or dangerous behavior. When I was a Police Officer, I saw the tragic consequences of such behavior too many times.
