How do you feel about RV drivers being required to be tested and or schooled and issued a special license? Why do you feel that way?

It is like anything else in this world, if you lack initial common sense, you are gonna have problems. Some people just don't think, they just do as they wish. There are a lot of automobile drivers who create the dangers for RV drivers. And some of those same drivers may have RV's or TT's. Most people are not aware that trailers that aren't really designed to be towed over 70-75 MPH. But you see it every single day, you have to factor the weight if an emergency stop is needed. Sure most 3/4 and 1 ton dualies will pull a camper well over 70, some 1/2 tons will too. But it the overall weight or combined weight that creates problems. Much like tractor trailer drivers complain about automobile drivers, they cut in front, or pull out in front of them. Stopping an 80,000 rig on a dime is impossible, unless you use walls.
I DO feel that some drivers should go through a competence course, and maybe the insurance companies could use that for discounts if you pass. They do that with motorcycles here in PA, go through a safety course get a ID card and discounted rates.
I drive all my vehicles like I am on my bike, ready for anything and everything to happen, I drive well over 40K a year for work, so I get to see more incompetent dopes than the average Joe.
