Big rigs can be your best friends, and in dangerous situations - the slower the better IMHO. When in college and driving frequently over a snowy/icy mountain pass, as working up the mountain and where there was a gap I'd get in behind one and let it track me through to the next road stop on the downside below the snowline. I KNEW it was a smart move when one time I was getting a coffee and the driver of the rig I followed congratulated me for using his rig to get over the pass ... as that was the guidance he was giving his daughter too! Naturally, paid for his coffee and slice of pie.
