God damn truck drivers, trucks need self drive technology before anything else, get rid of the selfish idiots who bring death with these vehicles. Texting? Shabu? No sleep? Drinking?

Hey, these truck drivers drive like they are KING OF THE ROAD all the time. And I have seen many, many of them texting. And their horns scare the daylights out of me. They don't need to be that loud. Now, their driving is too often times reckless. Can't stand most of them.
