A Canadian test identifies medical conditions that can impair drivers’ cognitive abilities

1. Driving in 2018 series: Possible solution to an alarming trend

Part two of our exclusive series also explains why you might not be as good a driver as you think you are, and offers 10 simple driving tricks from the pros that could immediately help keep you safer on the roads.

This morning I saw someone take 5 minutes to parallel park a 10' car into a 30' opening with someone guiding them the whole time........after 10 tries to get in the hole and 30 jig jogs they got it close enough to the curb.......yikes.

JaJa......makes me wish that everyone had to take a driving test with an 18 wheeler with a 40' trailer and back it into a loading dock with a 2' clearance on either side.  That would thin the herd.

Speaking of driver training.... I love to watch the driver of those double long Corona tractor trailers trying to back into the Corona warehouse just east of SuperLake....

I have trouble backing my boat trailer up when summering in Ontario.

And then they (some US politicians) say Mexican teamsters aren't qualified to drive in the US.
Due to mountains, old roads and streets, and a myriad of other obstacles, Mexican truck drivers are some of the best in the world.  And I do KNOW how to judge drivers.

And.....Guess where the Cascadia, the queen of the Freightliner fleet is built.  Yup, Mexico, along with others.  Note how rare it is to ever see a Mercedes truck in the USA.  Why?  Here is the answer:

“Freightliner Trucks is a Daimler Trucks North America brand with production locations in the United States and Mexico. The Freightliner Cascadia®️ Evolution is the flagship in the long-distance haulage segment. In 2009 the Saltillo Truck Manufacturing Plant was founded and produces Freightliner Cascadia Class 8 Trucks.“

Mexican KW's and DINA's are fine machines also.
