Truck drivers might be the problem

After all the accidents involving truck drivers lately it makes a person wonder how they were ever called "professional" in the first place. Now before you all go and say I'm painting all the truck drivers with one brush, well I'm not. Just looking at Castanet and a truck driver got his rig high-centered in a roundabout.
Let me point out something, I work close by Highway 97 everyday. I start in the wee hours of the morning and from what I see there is nothing "professional" about MOST of the truck drivers driving through Lake Country everyday especially when the RCMP are on shift change. The speed most of these guys go in a 50 km/h is much closer to 80 km/h or more every single day. When will these guys learn to not tailgate, speed and stay in the lane they should stay in.
Professional? I think not!
