Hey Truck Driver!

There is one difference on the roads that is a bit scary. Your average driver here is much less aggressive that in Chicago. But the truck drivers seem to pick up the slack. Which is the last person on the road you would want driving aggressively. Whereas in Chicago and the US for that matter, truck driver seem to be taught to yield. Some idiot wants to cut the truck driver off, let him because you could serious hurt them and the car. Here it is almost like they are taking the opposite stance. I have this big truck so you better get out of my way. Granted city buses have the right of way, but that doesn't justify trucks. You are supposed to yield to city buses which I applaud. The time of twenty people on the bus should take priority over the one person in the car. Plus the bus passengers are more ecologically friendly. But trucks merging into the front quarter panel of my car just doesn't seem right. It just seems so odd given the rest of the drivers on the road.
