3. I don't think the fuel savings is
worth your life. If you stay that close to a truck you will be in a big blind spot. You also won't have time to stop should the truck have to stop. Some truckers may get pissed but mainly because most would rather not kill someone even if it is the someone's fault.
Also will you save enough to cover a ticket for aggressive driving and following to close? Those are two traffic violations you can get.

Did they say how much you can save by slowing down and maintaining a steady speed?
