You don’t need to drive a racing car to showcase your fast reaction times, and this almost terrifying video proves it.
At first you might think that this truck driver is fed up with the slow traffic in front of him and goes for a gap between the cars on the other lane, but it seems that he was just narrowly avoiding a clumsy driver who decided to stop at a standstill on the highway.
Driving a lorry isn’t an easy job, and truck-drivers need a fair amount of skill and focus to control – even at low speeds – a 15+ ton behemoth, especially when other uncoordinated or ignorant motorists make their life harder with every silly maneuver they pull – like in this video.
The van driver decided to merge out of his lane way to late, at the most inappropriate time, to take a right turn; needless to say, the guy got hampered by a bus to the point he almost stopped completely. That’s not a very pleasant scenario for a truck-driver that’s traveling closely, at 90 km/h, unaware of the van driver’s foolish intentions.
Lucky for both of them, the trucker figured out – quite fast – what’s about to happen and pulled the mother-load of all evasive maneuvers, narrowly missing other innocent motorists.
