Driving home from Virginia in a horrific rain storm, my husband noticed that all the truckers had moved to the left lane of the highway. He asked, “Okay travel blogger, why do 18-wheelers move to the left lane every time it rains?”
- If they drive on the left side, they can see the yellow line right outside their window and stay on the road…. but really, if visibility were that bad, don’t you think they’d pull over instead?
- Water drains to the right, which means there’s a greater chance of hydroplaning when driving in the right lane…. again, if driving conditions were that bad, wouldn’t they pull over?
- Why do truckers do that? Does wacky truck driver behavior make you crazy when you travel? Find out why they do what they do. You might be surprised! I sure was.
- Things that irritate truck drivers. Believe it or not, we “four-wheelers” don’t own the road. We share it. TruckerMike shares his frustrations, most of which fall into the safe driving category. Truckers don’t want to crash into your car — so help them out!
