Shame on the History Channel and IRT Deadliest Roads

My son loves trucks so naturally the show's red trucks caught attention while flipping channels. It only took 2 min for me to realize this has to be the dumbest, crudest show on television. Bleep after bleep uttered by road-raged truck drivers who run over transporation signs on remote and steep mountain roads. There was even a hit-and-run incident that clearly was fault of the driver and the show's cameras just capture their driver insulting and yelling at the collision victim (in Bolivia) in English! Can't imagine how humiliated the local driver must have felt to have cameras shoved in his face recording that craziness when his car was totaled. I hope that was staged and an actor because it would be horrible otherwise. Are road-raged hit-and-runs supposed to be good entertainment? Shame on the show's producers, actors, and the History Channel!

This title has:

Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
