I just wanted to make a comment on the increasing amount of tailgaters I’ve noticed recently within the last year or so.
I run linehaul from Kingston to Brampton, Ont. and the amount of trucks I notice tailgating my trailer has increased substantially in the last year.
I am not sure if this is caused by the speed limiters now on most trucks, but they are so close to my trailer that I lose sight of them -total lack of common sense from these drivers.
They are risking an accident involving myself and others around us. Also, whenever trucks with limiters try to pass it takes us a while longer but it seems that there are a number of trucks without limiters and they have no problem coming too close and causing a risk to everyone surrounding them.
