Hoover General Contractors

Thsi morning I was harassed by the middle aged white male driver of a Hoover General Contractors truck. He got too close, honked at me, then passed right before a red light when I had signalled to get in the turning lane. At the red light he told me that I don't have a right to the road, and he was not hearing it about what the law really is. If you don't know the law for driving, you shouldn't have a drivers license. I wished they were more easily revoked and tested at least every 5 years. I plan to call Hoover later and complain about their driver's reckless driving, honking, and making the company look bad.

I will call to tell them I will not be doing business that allows it's drivers to act so irresponsibly. Do you have a license plate or truck #? The company # (256) 539-1944
