not to be so arrogant, but you put Not so rusty at all. Well after a display like you said I feel your rather rusty. Like everyone already said you should have seen this coming. Your in a big rig and can see a ways away or did you have some major obstruction? Even then if you had a obstruction were you following to close? Look at the BIG PICTURE. Its good you didn't take out the other truck but like mentioned what if the barriers were workers, IMHO I would have used that tool called brakes. If the passenger falls then it is his/her fault for not using the net and also your fault for not making sure they had the net up. I feel you messed up but hey if they don't mind keeping you then go with it.
