Yep, blame the slippery conditions. Never the drivers skills that did not have a clue about how his brakes work at to high speed in wet conditions.

Every day again and again, never, never finish.

Moral of the story always set up your stall behind (opposite to direction of traffic) a large road sign

also make sure the correct amulets are employed for protection. 😋

What you'll have to do when the truck is coming from opposite direction?

Slippery conditions 🤢.. much better I recommend to fully examine the blood works of the driver for any illegal substances.

Shouldn't be selling moo ping on the road then, should they?

Where do you see them selling moo ping ON the road. I see a sidewalk where they was set up.

Do they have to adhere to what you want? Just so you do not find anything else to complain about.

Pardon? Inertia is dependent on mass. The more massive an object the more inertia. An unladen lorry will stop quicker in the same circumstances as a laden one.

 

Always make sure sure there is a concrete electricity pole between you and the oncoming traffic. It will always jump out at itinerant vehicles.

I think you missed my sarcasm ?

 

However I appreciate your theory, but I will ask, did you considered traction when writing the above, i.e. when the wheels lock, regardless of load, there will be no response to the steering input.

 

The locked wheels cannot provide full driving traction and the vehicle can go out of control as we saw in the video.

Fortunately it was heavily loaded with cement and sand which helped it stop quicker, otherwise it could have been more serious.

And (correct) science lesson not withstanding, the truck bed looks empty to me.

There's even road sign for the hard-of-learning:

Slippery When Wet Sign

I remember once someone added graffiti, writing below it: "So is mine"

said he slowed for the red light by gently tapping on his brakes. 

Slowed?  Do not red lights mean STOP?
