OK, that probably won't process. On another V-bulletin forum it won't either. No idea why, it's an MP-4 and 7 mb.... no energy to try and figure it out.

Here's the stills..... 3 seconds from the first one to the last one...

OK, now that's just plain scary!
Did you have air horns? That usually gets their attention.

Wow! There are idiots everywhere. I'm so glad you had a decent shoulder to use to avoid him.



I think I'm going to have to install a dash cam like that. A great record if you ever have an accident because of a moron like that one.

Air horns scare them and they hit the brakes and freeze... Better to have her keep moving.

Drive an 18.. this is an everyday occurrence...And then they claim..."I didn't see him!" (17' tall, 24' wide with bright YELLOW tarps,Lights just a flashing and 2 escorts ahead, 3 escorts behind load..).

When theres damage, injuries or worse.... someone pays.

We've experienced twice in the last 5 years where there was an accident (minor, not in the coach) and it was one of our words against theirs and they flat out lied.

So the adjusters get together and agree someone's lying but they can't figure out whom and then they split it....

With a camera there's another witness, and a pretty reliable one at that.

Glad you got lucky, there was a bad accident less than a hundred feet from my front door this morning, 18 wheeler log truck got hit by a class B oil tanker truck, and almost ended up in the church at the corner. Log truck ended up on its side on the church sign, and the tanker truck came to a stop about 3 feet from the church office wall.

Just yesterday on the way to the doctor's office I had a minivan try to get me to rear end them. Yup they even put it in reverse to get me to hit them! Somehow I evaded them. Wish I had a dashcam then!

Same thing happened to me except it was a pickup pulling a trailer and I ended up off the road. Luckily it was very flat and smooth.
