Werner Enterprises - Dangerous driver

18 of 139 Werner Enterprises reviews

On 3-31-2016 at around 5:15 pm, Werner truck number 63954, pulling trailer number 31247, entered on to Interstate 65, at exit 334, in Priceville, AL.As I was passing, he came all the way to the left lane, forcing me off the road to pass in the grass.

I know he heard my horn. He looked at me in the mirror but continued to force me off the road, even though the right lane was clear. I managed to snap a shot on the dash camera.

The picture is attached to this complaint.I'm on the road all day for my job so I know things happen but these guys need to hang up and drive.

You sure you weren't doing what all typical dumb 4 wheelers do and seen him signal then seen him moving into the left lane and did what all intelligent people do and try to speed up to get around him even though he's almost completely in that lane and repeatedly honking your horn because your driving like an ***

You're correct that I was in the no zone, there's no way to avoid it when passing a slower truck. The real problem was the way he entered the highway and moved directly to the left lane, before getting up to speed and without checking for other traffic and then, didn't yield the lane, even after we made eye contact in his mirror.

Well, in your particular situation, sure there's a way to avoid the no zone. It's that large pedal next to the gas pedal. I'm not saying he has no responsibility but at least be honest. You saw him enter traffic, you saw his blinker, you saw him moving into your lane, and you stubbornly held your ground to let that big bully truck know that you would not be intimidated. The problem with stubborn pride like that is that it occasionally ends up with the driver of the passenger vehicle being smeared across fifty feet of pavement. What he did was wrong. What you did was ***.
