    Default Truckers and CB's...

    Say when your on the highway, and there is a big rig going over the posted speed limit. Do they know when a cop is hiding or if there is a cop up ahead? Just wondering because i've never in my life seen a big rig pulled over before.

    you never see them pulled over cuse they always know where the speed traps are also they understand how to drive safely and know that their trucks aren't met to do much over the speed limit when they are pulling a load

    I would say if you don't have a CB and you see the trucks hauling a$$ you're probably OK. But if they are doing the limit, beware.

    I kinda thought so because I was behind a one and I was doing 90 so he must of been doing at least 85 because he was keeping up with me.

    I've been using a CB on long highway trips for almost 20 years. The truckers are continually talking to each other where every LEO is, whether its moving, stationary, state, local, donut eating, radar shooting, etc. It's been my best kept secret that truckers are the single best source for where LEO's are. It's nice to know miles in advance that there's a bear hiding in the bushes at some mile marker.
