    Be grateful you didnt have this.

    This came by way of the trucker forum. The driver had to be stopped by another car and still didnt have the cognitive to get out of his vehicle until a off duty trucker told him what he had done.
    If it isnt broken, dont repair it.

    It's obvious he could see the car in his mirror if he had looked, when I started driving semi's over thirty years ago we were told to keep our eye's moving, windshield, left mirror, windshield, right mirror, windshield, gauges, repeat.
    It would be interesting to know how the car go there in the first place.

    Yeah I have to agree. I too have turned a few miles for 5 months. It wasnt that hard to get the head into a swivel every 10 seconds. Also helped beat fatigue.

    Saw it on the local news here. It had to be a scary ride for those in the car.
