Almost went to jail last night, Knight driver chuckled when he saw the damage and I came uncorked, another driver grabbed me and shoved me back to my truck before my fist flew.

Went to bed early to sneak into Orlando early, woke up to the truck shaking, an all to familiar feeling since this has happened several times. Knight driver (they own Seift) backing in beside me and planted his trailer into the side of my truck.

This truck didnít have a scratch on it, not a dent, nothing, THE BODY WAS FRIGGIN PERFECT!! Then along comes this guy!! Iím still pissed

Then I oversplept, got stuck in a bad accident that pretty much shut I-4 down, bad day

As often as you switch trucks, you'll have a new one before this one has a chance to get fixed....

By the way, I don't care what you say... That's not almost maroon, that's purple...

The guy probably hit you on purpose, figuring some g.ay guy was driving a purple truck and deserve to have it damaged...

Did you name your truck the purple helmet?

Question why do truck drivers pull into the left lane to pass another truck and then take forever to pass the other truck holding up traffic below the posted speed limit?

Does the State pay ya'll to screw up traffic?

when you catch up to a truck that is a little slower than yours
and your company has limited (govern) their trucks to 67mph or less, you have 600 miles of more to cover in 11 hours then that is what you have to do
you want to bitch about it , call the company and chew their ass

That sucks, I would have been uncorked if the SOB had started laughing too.

You should be pissed and i would add some stuff for his company to fix too then top it off with some compensation for missed work while getting repaired.

Glad your not in jail though

keep on trucking dude.

sure sucks
some people just do not care glad you did not end up with a a assault charge any way .


we had just bought a new van ( back in the late 70's ) some old bat hit me while I was parked and sitting in it.
the same frigging day I bought it .I taught he a few new words but being a woman I did not hit her
she told me that was how she judged distance when parking she would just keep rolling until it hits the vehicle in front of her ,,

No surprise to me, the quality of truck drivers has dropped to a new low. Used to be professionals, but now they have signed on the bottom of the barrel.

When I bought this it went into the shop to be set up, they asked me if I wanted a speed limit set, this is what I told them to set it at.

Because itís not a long hood Peterbilt! This big thing doesnít handle as well as a long hood Pete and to be honest, 85 is fast enough in one of these. The fastest I had that Pete was 103 and that was racinh a p p yellow KW that I didnít want passing me in New Mexico, that truck would have hit around 130 the way it was geared but that 103 is where I let up in the throttle when the tire shake started
