You are entitled to your opinion, but painting all drivers of a certain aspect with one brush is just naive. My father is a truck driver, and so are most of his friends, many of whom have driven for the past 15-20 years, millions of miles across North America, accident free. Sure you get bad truck drivers, just like you get bad BMW drivers, but to say all of them shouldn't be allowed to drive is just dumb. Iv been with him on plenty of trips, and you should see how bad the other drivers on the road are, pulling onto the highway going 20mph because they are scared, cutting off an 18 wheeler that ways about 80 000lbs gross, then gunning it with their v6 and going 100 mph.

Everywhere you look youll find bad drivers, it isin't specific to certain group, race, or sex.

That being said.. ill give you old people.. probability of an old person being a dangerous driver is exponentially higher.

Hope you get the problem fixed soon OP, let us know how much the repair costs
