    Worst Drivers on HWY #1?

    Why does it feel like the worst drivers on the Trans Canada now adays are the "professional truck drivers".

    Really need to watch these clowns they have gotten exponentially worse in the last year.

    Its actually unbelievable the amount of closures that happen as a result of those guys, I live between Sicy and Revy and i believe the majority of the accidents and road closures around 3 valley gap have been caused by these guys. and you never see them pulled over being ticketed and they drive with absolute disregard for others on the road, I have heard this same conversation a hundred times and most opinions are the same. the big problem I have is that when these guys cause an accident they typically come out unscathed unless its with another transport, but in many situations the person or people in the other vehicle aren't so lucky.... and it seems to be getting worse not better over the years. I know its not all transport drivers and I've seen my fair share of good ones but they seem like a dying breed. I feel like giving some of these guys a licence is a licence to kill.

    Take comfort in the impending introduction of the self driving truck.

    Worst Drivers on HWY #1?

    I believe that the standard of a professional driver has lowered over the years. There is still a ton of pride in that industry but some of the drivers are not up for the challenge and they ruin it for the rest of the professionals.
    Just my opinion (am not a driver).

    Yep it’s getting unbelievable. Last trip to Sicy had one of these “professionals” pull out in front of me. He clearly saw me coming at highway speed and couldn’t wait 10 seconds. Pretty sad.

    I see the same thing every week on my trips between Sicamous and Calgary. It is getting worse and no enforcement at all. Very few can take a corner on their side. Twice this year I have had a semi coming at me traveling east passing another in the westbound pasing lane.

    Re: Worst Drivers on HWY #1?

    One of the biggest issues is there pay scale also, Government needs to force hourly pay to the non owner operators as the km rate
    is making guys drive like retards My son drives thru there twice a week and says it ridiculous how fast some guys want to drive
    He is one of the lucky one that gets paid by the hour so doesnt stress out when construction/maintainence delays his deliveries
    this may add to the cost of business but may need to be looked at also
