    He was helping other drivers. Don't see enough of that anymore. But running between those trucks was plain crazy. Hope he recovers ok.

    No good deed goes unpunished. I would never get between the trucks or be in the truck’s path when spotting a driver though.

    That place is kind of a booger to park at. I used to pick up some good loads at a chemical plant about 10 miles from there.

    But yeah, if you can't see my mirrors, I can't see you. And if I'm backing and I know someone is back there and suddenly I can't see them, I'm stopping. I've pissed off more than one guy doing that, but I'm pretty sure they're over it by now.

    Amd even if not, they are alive and uninjured, and at the end of the day that's what matters.
