Open letter to truck drivers

Ed,
I have witnessed some terrible behaviour by truck drivers lately.
I understand you guys are only doing your job which is time critical and dictated by tight deadlines, but impatience has no place on our roads.
I was tailgated by a semi near Yamba turnoff earlier this week for no reason. Yesterday I saw another car experience the same while driving to the speed limit. It’s dangerous and illegal and will not make the vehicle in front go faster. A few weeks ago I was almost run off the road into a concrete culvert by an overtaking truck driver who couldn’t wait for the next safe overtaking opportunity. Travelling at 100km/h, you could have killed us.
Don’t risk my life or that of my young family because you wish to risk yours.
Sam Woods, Yamba
