Correct me if Iam wrong , but you are ian a 65 or so tonne B double( your words) and for aprox 50% of the time you are driving in the right lane on your posted videos.
Think about it , shouldn;t you driving a deadly 65 tonne vehicle drive in the slow left lane as often as possible?
In Europe this is law....aren't you glad the life is cheap in Australia?
During the 12 months to the end of June 2011, 228 people died from 201 crashes involving heavy trucks or buse
During the 12 months ended June 2011 there were 1,304 deaths

Oh and let's not forget, a truck driver has a lot more skill than the average car driver, and with this skill comes the attitude of "I'm bigger and heavier than you" and really, any car driver that doesn't realise (too many IMO) that mass ALWAYS wins are just asking for trouble.

It sounds to me that the OP is a menace on the roads. If you are really being constantly tailgated by trucks then you are one of those people that sit below the posted speed limit and get in everyone's way. You then cause trucks to try and overtake you, slowing up the right lane for the rest of us.
That or you sit in the right lane on purpose to make sure nobody speeds. How often do you get people undertaking you in the left lane?
There are some truck drivers that are very poor, and they intimidate other drivers. They are in the minority. And yes i have almost been run off the road by them. However i do a lot of highway driving, and on average car drivers are much worse than truck drivers...much, much worse!
Honestly i think you should dial down the rhetoric, stop thinking you are a "victim" and learn how to drive.
