There are good and bad drivers in every mode of transportation.... I have had truckers stop to help me when stranded with breakdown or flat before knowing that they get paid by the mile and time is an issue. I also have had one truck driver nearly run me off the road hitting the side of a car I once owned coming at me in the other lane. On the same note I use to ride bikes and seen many that should not be allowed to ride due to their driving like idiots....but being a past bike rider there is danger from others on the road that just do not pay attention to what there doing. My accident in 1996 was from a 18 year old kid with his stepmoms car running at least 60mph in a 30 zone playing with the radio. He hit my car from behind at about 60mph while I was stopped at a red light. There are good and bad drivers in all modes or transportation and ages other there. Glad the rider is ok hes blessed.
