    Rewatch the video, you can see the trucker not having lane control and goes into the right lane, that car could have been there and just maybe was trying to get out from being crushed.

    I believe this is what happened.

    Not the same but I was in the right lane today
    A truck to my left passing me and a truck about 2 trucks lengths ahead of me

    As the guy passing me gets even with the other guy in front of me some idiot 4 wheeler comes blowing by me, jumps in front of me and sees he can’t get around the truck I. The left lane so he decides to pass on the shoulder
    Jumps to the should and there was a dump truck parked there
    He almost crashed and I was doing 68 so he was probably doing all of 80

    Incorrect assessment. Right lane ended, you can see 2 signs. The car passed on the shoulder. Truck was legal and maintained lane position.

    And man, there was a whole, whole lotta time to either get ahead or get behind.
    Must be from Texas. That's how those folks roll.

    truck didn’t maintain lane position.

    look at the lines relative to the hood and side view mirrors when the video starts. You can see the truck veer into the right lane before it ends. This is what I mean.

    This first images shows the lines relative to the hood and the rear view mirrors.

    See how far that line has shifted before that car rockets out from the side.

    just saying that is how I gauge where my truck is in the lane and that truck looks like it veered into the right lane.

    It's ok to say that you're wrong

    Yes driver might have wandered "slightly" but in all respects never left his lane or endangered anyone. The auto driver is a moron nothing more.

    You should admit it then. I said what I said and I said “I believe this is what happened”. That truck did veer right, evidence is there, now did it scare the driver on his right? Did he even know there was a 4 wheeler there? We don’t know and can’t.

    Both of us have opinions yours doesn’t make it right nor does mine.


    Nothing to admit to other then keep on trucking and this is the interwebs no need to puff your chest.
