I"ve just watched the video and there is no way that the truck driver was in any way to blame.

The government is to blame for not insisting that driving standards are raised with better training and tighter regulations.

This lady was not on a suicide mission, nor was she nuts, she was badly educated on how to drive safely!

 

Where is the video posted?

Why, when I can ask you?

I deleted it out of respect. If it was my sister I would not want that video going around. Locals don't seem to care.

Same same in the UK, with cyclists.

The difference being most UK cyclists actually understand that trucks have blind spots.

Yes, agreed. In my younger years I rode a bike a lot, due to necessity. Had to pass the cycling proficiency test when I was 10 (lots of Highway Code stuff).

They all  do this and no one at the junctions ever does anything, usually a  police  box  looking  on.
