VIDEO: 72-wheel semi truck seems to go on forever

An Australian truck driver recently took to Reddit to share a clip of an impressively long semi truck and his equally long attempt at passing it. 

“You need a lot of room to pass a 72 wheeler when you’ve got 42 wheels yourself…” wrote the video poster. 

In the clip, the somewhat desolate outback stretches before them as the filming driver comes up on the road train and seizes an opportunity to pass it, which takes a considerable amount of time and space thanks to its 72 wheels. 

“Such impressive rigs. And they look a lot more stable than a US “Wiggle wagon” or turnpike triple,” commented one viewer. 

“When strapping down the load takes you two days,” added another. 

Check out the clip, below.
