Clearly you've accidently left out the footage of the SUV/minivan crammed to the gills with six people in it who changed lanes in front you with only three feet of space between your bumper and their back end then proceeded to hit the brakes.
I just rolled home from Gatlinburg, TN to Tampa on Sunday, 11 hours of rain. I wouldn't want to drive a big rig through it. Thankfully, DH used to so I designate him the driver.
Oh yeah, those chicken trucks are NASTY when you get behind one on a motorcycle!
