On Friday Dec. 17, 2010 at approximately 10:30 p.m. I was driving southbound on interstate 55 through Bloomington, Illinois. A truck from "Furness Trucking" was driving behind me. I was driving the posted speed limit of 65 mph until entering a construction zone and slowing down to the posted 55 mph. The Furness truck got close to my car and flashed his high beams a few times. I was in the right lane and noticed a sign that stated "trucks use right lane." The speed limit changed to 45 mph and I lawfully changed my speed to 45 mph. The Furness truck seemed agitated that I slowed down and after a short time drove into the left lane. At this time, the speed limit went back up to 55 mph, so I changed my speed to 55 mph. The Furness truck probably thought I was trying to prevent him from passing me, but I was merely going the speed limit. After the construction zone speed limit had ended, I drove along side the truck in order to get the information off of the truck. While doing so, the truck swereved into my lane nearly causing me to drive off the interstate. I immediately called the state police and gave the information to them including the license plate number of "328 885". I maintained a safe distance behind the truck for 50 miles and called the state police once more and the truck was never pulled over before I had to exit. The driver of this truck did not follow simple traffic laws and put the lives of me, my six year old daughter, and wife in danger because I chose to drive the speed limit. Needless to say, this driver does not need to be driving a semi and this reflects poorly on Furness Trucking. It's too bad I could not summon the help of Illinois state police and file charges against this driver.
