Want to be safe? Try riding within your skill level and practicing these skills used by professional drivers.
Aim High In Steering,
Get The Big Picture,
Keep Your Eyes Moving,
Leave Yourself An Out,
Make Sure They See You,
As a professional driver, I have participated in countless driver safety classes, not once has making constant obnoxious noise been mentioned as a safety tool.
Any cognizant adult will see LPSL for what it is, a lame excuse for narcissistic behavior.
It's funny that you mention that, I have driven commercially since 1982, when the CDL A was just a Combination Lic. In the 29 years I have never had a ticket or accident. I have driven/operated almost everything, with the exception of triples.
I have seen it all and as of today, almost heard it all to boot.
