    but on the NY Thru-Way, double FULL length rigs and triple short rigs are fairly common.

      evn when you have two other lanes available. Where the road is two lanes each way, it's really close quarters at times.

      but I see double full length rigs all the time. Driving next to one, especially in bad weather...yikes!

      or a convoy of triples, surrounding a minivan of terrified vacation-goers.  Nobody wants to share the road with these things, and unlike the fears that drive conservatives, this one is actually based on reality.  We can capitalize on this honest, real, and (as much as can be) rational fear.
