For some reason I notice men who drive big pickup trucks like a F-350 tend to drive fast. They love to blow diesel smoke by fast acceleration . For example, I think the fastest drivers tend to be the guys who drive the roll back tow truck styles. I THINK IT IS TIME FOR EVERYONE TO CALM DOWN AND DRIVE SLOWER!! ALLOW MORE TIME TO DRIVE TO YOUR DESTINATION!
