Interesting bit of footage on the TV news here a couple of days ago taken from the Go-Pro or similar helmet cam of a bloke who was rear ended at a set of lights in Canberra. He gets up and turns around and the driver of the car that hit him/her still has her phone in her hand in front of her face!God help us!Pete
I have not been a professional trucker but I have driven farm trucks and truck/trailers with 30+ tons of honey bees on board cross country. Every car driver should have to drive a large truck or semi a few times in traffic, etc. and I would guess from then on they would be a much better more attentive and polite driver. Maybe tie a bee hive onto the bike of your bike as I don't remember having much tailgating even though in a vehicle the windows were all up. ;DGliderJohn
I'm not generally down on truckers, but I've noticed something lately both in my car and on my bike on big highways.Sometimes, whether I'm in the fast, middle, or slow lane, and I'm boxed in, can't change lanes to either side, and I'm as close to the car in front of me as I feel safe, a giant truck will tailgate me worse than anyone has ever done in a car. I mean 60 or 70 MPH and ten feet off my bumper, a single bar on his grill filling my mirrors. And it wasn't like it slipped up on them and they back off; they get there and STAY there. I don't know what they're doing or why they do it, but if I was ever wishing I could shoot a big something (load of "00" buckshot, etc) into their grill, that's when it is.This happens more often with big commercial trucks than it does with cars. Why would someone who is "supposed" to be a "professional" driver do something as dangerous, as threatening, and and as non-value-related as that? He can't possibly get anything out of it ... ?Lannis
I actually followed all of that, and I feel your pain. It reminds me of driving in Italy: Everyone on the roads is either a beat-up old truck (full of chickens in cages or whatever) poking along at 55 kph, or an Alfa Romeo wanting to zoom past at 180 kph. Meanwhile you just want to drive a nice, normal 130 kph (about 85 mph), and everyone hates you. You can't win..
It's worse than ever. Some of them get closer when I politely give the back off hand wave. Yeah, I know it's illegal to do but dammit, I'm thinking of adding smoke or flames from the exhaust. A bit of diesel through the emissions test bung at the header. Viberider shows a flame set-up. About 5k and hit the switch. "Bubble the paint for you sir?"
Started west on Douglas after a stop at a bicycle shop I visit regularly, and wanted to stop at a great fish place and get one of their catfish plates
I think a mounted camera and a flash trigger would be effective.
