comment Why do trucks pass each other on the highway?
@The111 please don't be so pedantic. No where in the question missing the exit was an issue. I simply took my loss and took the next exit. I am just trying to understand a behaviour of what I considered annoying behaviour by truck drivers. Thanks to Spacedog (below) I have quite some more understanding of why this might be necessary. Your "It's x's fault", kind of comments on the contrary are kind of noise in this thread and is not helping.

comment Why do trucks pass each other on the highway?
@The111 I invite you to come and drive in the Benelux, where it is not uncommon for trucks to account for majority of traffic. So if a truck is passing a chain of trucks it is not always possible to exit, simply due to the long chain of trucks on the right. Even with no passing truck it can happen that it is not possible to exit a highway because trucks don't leave room between them. When you have a line of 20 or more trucks slowing down doesn't help. When driving in the benelux it isbest to just try to get in this line up to 5 km before the exit. But then you need to know your exits up front.

I guess all those commenters who say that braking is a valid option, have never driven in the Benelux where it is not uncommon for trucks to be the majority of traffic. Chain collisions between trucks, due to short follow distance are not uncommon. Some time you just don't want get out of the highway between trucks

That answers the question, thanks for trying to explain. I guess I will never be annoyed again by a slow passing truck

@spacedog I was in doubt whether it fit travel as well, until I saw the description of the traffic tag. Also, have issues with missing exits is typically something that will occur when driving on unfamiliar roads, typically abroad when your travel. At home you know your exits.

@HenningMakholm braking was not an option since I would have to slow down to a dangerous speed. It was safer to just continue to the next exit.
