VIDEO: Trucks Can’t Stop On A Dime


A car cuts in front of a truck and promptly slows to a stop.  The fully loaded tanker is unable to stop in time and bumps into the back of the car.

According to the video’s description, the driver doesn’t fault the car driver.  The truck driver said, “I don’t wanna remove or place blame on anyone in this situation. to me it was a bit of luck & a bit of unfortunate judgement.
We all gotta share the road, the good Samaritan wanted to let the last guy out, not realizing a tanker weighing 80.000 lbs was coming up from behind at 50 mph. Luckily snow & ice had not covered the roads just yet.”

This video is a great reminder to car drivers that trucks can’t stop as quickly as their cars can.  Share this with your non-trucking friends.
