Black Dog

Question: Why did Jack pull into the weigh station when Earl told him not to?

Question: Is the whole thing with truckers seeing "a black dog" when they have been on the road too long true, or made up purely for the film?

Chosen answer: It's an old trucker's myth that has been around for a long time. There's no known origin for the story, but supposedly when truckers become drowsy, they can see a demon-like black canine of some sort running along the side of the road. This legend was incorporated into the movie.
