Trucks


The average loaded Semi weighs 80,000 pounds. The average car weighs less than 3000 pounds. Simple physics suggest that if a smaller object comes in contact with a larger object the larger object will run over and crush the smaller object.
Two objects cannot occupy the same space at once. Unless one is on top of the other. Better to be behind than under, little more head room that way.

As my mother taught me when I was learning to drive, "always remember who has right of weight." It's amazing how many people throw caution to the wind to cut off vehicles far more massive than their own. I've seen everything from compact sedans cutting off big rigs to bicyclists zipping by SUVs. Fortunately, I've not yet seen anybody trying to beat a train, but it's probably only a matter of time.

I'm looking forward to reading your blog! I came here from Roadguy's blog, and this looks interesting. ;-)
