I tried drafting semis a few times. I had a real eye opener when the truck in front of me ran over a cardboard box.
I didn't see it until it was right in front of my car.

I was following at the point that his mirrors were just barely visible at the time.

BTW, He didn't like me there at all. He kept swerving and slowing down.

Not worth my life to save a few pennies ( or even $5 ) in gas !
