I thought feeling safe or feeling secure were pretty much the same thing???

Codders I think you have confused people with your first post! I read it as you meant that truck drivers are not as "safe" meaning they where not as good a driver as they think! Not as I now think you meant that they are not as "safe" in there trucks as they may think!
Dose that make sens?

Haven't you ever heard the expressions

or

"I didn't feel safe standing on the gangplank"

You could just as easilly use the word secure!!!

Yes and yes.
I was just pointing out where you may have caused some confusion with your choice of word.
It's all to do with context.

Imagine a man with a gun standing on a high building ledge.

You may say "That man is safe."

Is he safe because he is holding on?
or
Is he safe because he is not trying to shoot you?
