Bear Witness To The World’s Luckiest Driver…Sheesh!

If you’re going to find yourself face to face with a semi, the best thing you can do is hope for any bit of room to maneuver.

Thankfully, this video has a happy ending, but not before putting a seriously big scare into whoever was behind the wheel of the car.

Not only did the driver of the dashcam car come face to face with that Iveco truck, he also had to steer himself off the road in order not to impact a second truck, which for some reason didn’t seem to slow down at all.

According to the description of the video, the incident took place near the city of Kurgan in Russia, and it took the owner of the car a full three weeks in order to get it repaired and repainted.

As for the reason why the truck driver did what he did, it probably had something to do with that orange truck ahead carrying logs. It was just sitting there by the side of the road, causing a bit of a traffic jam behind it.

Still, no reason to get impatient and overtake when there’s clearly another vehicle approaching and visibility is optimal.

    Heavy vehicles are the biggest bullies on the road.

      True that. I live in the Netherlands, and once I was travelling with car to Groningen, the city in North of the country in snow, I was seeing these huge ass semi-trucks in two way road that passing me, and was hoping to reach the city, without being smashed under their wheels.

      Part of it is because of just bad drivers driving semi’s, the other part comes from the way truck drivers are treated by other drivers. I grew up in California and Semis were forced to do 55 in the right lane while everyone could do 65 in the other lanes and cars of all kinds would speed up to the freeway exits then cut between 2 trucks and try and get off in time and almost caught a multi-truck accident, or they didn’t realize just how much room these trucks need to stop (saw this more so going back and forth from Cali and Vegas).

      I used to drive back and forth from Vegas to NorCal and going over Tehachapi cars would get in front of trucks going down hill and brake hard because they had sped up to get in front of the trucks and then had to brake around the curves and these trucks were already struggling to maintain a safe speed going downhill and now they have to try and keep from hitting this idiots now in front of them who clearly knows nothing about driving a vehicle that large. Now I’ve been in Vegas for a while and semis can drive in any lane and do the same speed as everyone else, they’re a lot more pleasant to drive with, it’s easier to get on and off the freeway and you really don’t have this “bully” feeling as often with semi trucks as you do anywhere else.

      My dad also has his CDL and for a time was driving cross country in a semi truck so when i was learning to drive I learned to give a little more leeway to semis and actually put in one and my dad moved around the outside of the truck asking me “Can you see me here?”

      Then he took me for a drive across town in a rig with trailer and all, and to this day i feel like that was the most educational driving course I ever got. I had never been cut off so many times in one car ride.

    There should be a law to allow installation of a mini gun on a car, and a device to detect a head on collision. I think you get my point…early detection wins !
