He's got a point mate.
From my experience (and having worked for a haulage firm about 16 years ago) the vast majority of truckers are very good and tolerant drivers but a few do act like complete morons - pretty much the same ratio as car drivers. But us car drivers see one idiot in a 5 tonner driving it like it's a transit van and we tend to wrongly tar all truckers with the same brush.

I see a guy in 5 tonner about once a week throwing it around roundabouts and overtaking dangerously and I'm just waiting to see him lose it (without hurting anyone else but himself) because it seems to be the only way he will learn.
