Woman shaken by threatening semitrailer on Bruce Hwy

A WOMAN has shared an alarming encounter, saying a truck tailgated her on the Bruce Hwy from Childers to Torbanlea.

Shola Saffy posted a photo her child took on the Fraser Coast Chronicle's Facebook page, saying the driver of the truck "decided to endanger mine and my five children's lives".

Ms Saffy said she was travelling at the speed limit at 100kmh but was forced to go about the speed limit by five to 10kmh to avoid the truck, which she said was close to hitting her.

"(I) was so scared and felt bullied by them to go faster in wet weather," she said.
