Trucks and their drivers

I've been noticing the increasing volume of speeding pickup trucks and SUV's like the Ford F150, Expeditions, Tahoes and Chevys on the road and some even swerve while speeding. Do these truck owners know that their vehicle has a higher center of gravity and will likely flip over in a sharp turn or an accident than normal cars? Are they all doctors or rescuers that they have to get somewhere to perform life saving operations? Do they know that the force of their vehicle if/when it hits another vehicle is very extreme (Force = Mass x Acceleration, if you don't know this go back to High School)?

Are these drivers stupid or something? Yes, both stupid and something.

If you have a truck/SUV and drive it like mad read SUV before you hurt somebody.
