Educational Trucker

Photo of a truck we say on i10 driving to California last weekend. I that it was very educational...

<-- PASSIN SIDE SUICIDE -->

Keep this in mind the next time your out riding.
Don't be retarded and try to pass a semi on the right!

Re: Educational Trucker

What if that truck is in the left lane or on a one lane road?

Re: Educational Trucker

Funny - and a nice rule of thumb. However I can recall quite a few times I was on the "passin side" and the frikin idiot trucker swerved their rig out in my lane to pass a car with no signal. F' everybody else when you are on a bike. Cagers and truckers typically never see you, or attempt to kill when they do. (Sorry for the rant - I've had a lot of A-holes pull out in front of me because they want to control the flow of traffic)

Re: Educational Trucker

Not so much suicide as negligent homicide. Especially in the case where the trucker said he saw me attempt to pass on the right bust decided to make his turn anyway!

Most truckers think they own the road just because they have the biggest vehicle. It's the same thing as the soccer mom in the Suburban.

Re: Educational Trucker

The point of the markings is more for turns then passing. When these guys go to make a right turn it may appear that they are going straight because of the cut they have to make for the rear to sswing around. Then some idiot go and tries to either pass them or make a right turn without looking at their signals and ends up getting crushed.

Just because you are in the right dose not make you any less dead.

Right, that's why I said negligent homicide vs suicide...
