I didn't watch the video. I just want to comment that courtesy is pretty much gone from the roadways. I've towed a ton of RV's over the years and I can tell you it's getting worse and worse. I watch idiots hanging around behind me in the hammer lane back several hundred feet for miles and miles until I signal to move over then guess what? I watch their headlights jump upwards for a second as they shove the throttle to the floor and they are on my bumper dancing back and forth between my mirrors like a hyper hamster within seconds. That's only the beginning of the nonsense that is going on out there...please don't get me started.

I have stainless steel over the majority of my back window, my rear view mirror has been pointed at the headliner since I got the truck, I just don't want to engage in the nonsense behind me. I use my outside mirrors as required to drive the truck safely and that's it. I check them regularly until one of these morons comes up behind me then I don't even look in them until I'm clearing myself to move back over. I use my cruise control when possible so I don't speed up or slow down based on the actions of the clown behind me.

I concur! In society and on the road. Civility and common sense are like hens teeth. Trash on TV in prime time with sexual innuendo abound. Can't let your kid just turn on a TV.
I live in the country a half hour from town. In the morning I'm trying to pull out of my little street but can't because the steady stream of traffic coming from next county over driving thru to get to Baltimore. The are coming from a 4 way stop sign 100 HDs down the road. They see the truck inching out one lane stops but must turn into oncoming lane. The cars see this and refuse to be courteous enough to stop for one second to let the nose of my truck cross turning in and out of that lane to turn into my lane. They have actually driven onto the grass to get around. Yeah one second of touching the brake and showing courtesy will make them that late for work and kill them. Sad days for those who know and stand for better.
MGHUA!
