Distracted driver pulls out in front of truck
TRUCKIES are fed up with the behaviour of motorists who think they own the roads.
This latest incident, captured on a driver's dashcam, showed a car allegedly with children on board, pulling out in front of a truck without looking from a lane that appeared to have ended.
Luckily, the skilled truck driver was able to slow down and avoided what could have been a dangerous crash.
It is not known where the crash happened.
The video was posted to the Truck Dash-Cam Australia Facebook group and attracted many comments from other drivers, frustrated that this kind of behaviour was not showing any signs of stopping.
One driver said, "this is just the dumb sh*t we have to put up with day in and day out, people don't see what we see, and they live in their own little world without a thought of what could happen when you don't pay attention to the road and surroundings".
Another driver praised the truckie for his quick-thinking actions.
"Well done bloke! Your quick reaction saved them all from getting seriously hurt or killed. I've had this happen (although not quite such a close call) and had them come around to the driver's side and abuse me for nearly hitting them. Some people just shouldn't be on the road."
