    They will probably just provide more training for the trainer.

    The truck driver is in the wrong.... Look at the picture. Why in the hell is making a U turn there? That's a no no.

    So, if a car had been making the U turn and the truck came flying through speeding, the car would have been in the wrong?

    They do say the truck driver will not be charged and that he was doing a legal u-turn. I didn't realize a u-turn from the far right lane could be legal though.
