    Truck driver following too close. No surprise considering who was driving. Send them to prison then deport

    He MAY have been following too close, but a vehicle should NEVER stop in an active driving lane.

    I fully expected someone to call out the persons heritage, which was totally uncalled for! As is the send to prison and deport comment. Without ALL the information, those comments are out of line.

    Almost had this happen to me last winter. Driver was going to fast to stop for the intersection, decided that driving into oncoming traffic (aka me) was better than rear ending the car in front of him. I ended up taking the shoulder to avoid dying lol. Just considering the combination of forces involved it would be safer for the killer truck to just stay in its lane or swerve off the road to the right and hit a building. Idk, maybe one day I'll find out how id really react in that situation if ever so unfortunate.On a side note, how can a 22 year old be a driver in this country?Posted via Mobile Device

    The truck driver made a really bad split-second reaction to an incident. He’ll live with that forever. In similar circumstances we don’t know how we’d react.

    As to a 22 year old being a driver, a 15 1/2 year old can have a learners permit in most provinces. A 16 year old can drive a private vehicle and an 18 year old can get a CDL. I don’t understand your question.
