On my way home tonight, some semi-truck comes up behind me and jake brakes RIGHT up to my bumper, probably got within 5 feet of me (In a 55 MPH zone) He followed anywhere from about 1/4 to maybe 1 second behind me, falling back, speeding up so he could jake brake again and make lots of noise - basically trying to intimidate me (2 lane highway, I was travelling about 51 - 53 MPH, cruise set)
When he passed me, he nearly clipped my back bumper.
I've got high-def (Phone was only set to 720P at the time) video of about the last 2 minutes of this idiot endangering my life, including him nearly clipping the back bumper of my vehicle at 50+ MPH.
A portion of the video barely shows the truck, (I was watching the road, not exactly where the camera was pointing out the window) but there is plenty of video there.
Also a decent shot of the truck as it passed me, including the USDOT number, name of trucking company... Tractor license # & trailer license number...
Looking up the USDOT number, the company is a trucking company that has 5 rigs, 5 drivers, hauls livestock as well as feed etc.
Something I'm sure some media outlets might be interested in, as well as PETA/Animal rights groups, showing how idiot farms endanger not only the environment but the lives of the rest of us on the highways to deliver their cargo, not to mention their customers likely wouldn't want any publicity...
I'm so fu*#^$ pissed at the moment I could spit... Some stupid *#$ endangering my life on the road like that, not to mention on-coming traffic if he were to hit me... There was no way to slow down for fear he would have hit me, I'm sure he couldn't see my tail lights most of the time over the hood of the semi tractor.
Would offering to sell the video along with permanent and exclusive rights to the trucking company be considered blackmail?
