Luvaduck Nov 09, 2017 05:39 PM Semi-Truck Catches Fire on Highway 101 Since tail-gating so close that the vehicle behind's license plate isn't visible seems to be an everyday occurrence (I get out of their way and watch them do the same stupid thing to anyone they follow), no surprise. So. . .you tailgaters: Is it ignorance, stupidity, desire to be crippled, to die or mangle passengers or what? You can't all be incapable of judging distance.
