Why would truck drivers flash the spotlight on the side of their cab at me when I'm passing in the left lane?
Driving in the late hours of the night and early hours of the morning, when I-95 is ruled by truckers, I came across several whom when I passed from the left lane, flashed a bright spotlight on the side of their cab.
This light is mounted such that it is aimed directly at the driver of a car that is passing the truck. I was not "coasting" alongside the truck and made all of my passes in a timely manner when traffic and road conditions allowed.
This light is rather blinding when your in a passenger vehicle and this practice seems dangerous. Were these drivers trying to signal me, or just toying around with the few "4-wheelers" on the road in those late/early hours?
