Default Dangerous truck drivers.. get up, you're asleep at the wheel!

I was driving home this evening in freezing rain pretty much..

As I was approaching a weigh station, about 2 miles out I was behind a truck that was wavering in the lanes a fair amount.. enough that I didn't feel that I could safely pass him..
this continues for a mile and a half.. at one point the vehicle in the left lane and I were both flashing our high beams at the meandering semi..

as we get right to the weighstation.. the "Sysco" truck infront of the meandering one isn't getting in the right lane to enter the weigh station.. the truck that I just passed starts flashing his lights for about 10 seconds to alert the Sysco truck to enter the weighstation.. He had to veer to the right to make the turn..

Amazing.. some of the worst driving yet this year, Icy.. rain.. And the truck driver who was driving like he was asleep is the one keeping the truck infront of him from blowing past well lit weigh stations.

Makes you feel safe out there.
