I had a tipper truck accelerate hard on the bypass dual lane road to make a turn before me here https://goo.gl/maps/tmdtcABxLqT2 I was going straight on and didn't know it was a tipper until it's back axle came within a couple of inches of my bars, fuck knows how it missed me. I knew it was a bigger vehicle as I heard that large diesel engine working real hard, that's the closest I've come to a real life threatening situation, he barely made the turn and had to slam on to avoid going completely on the other side of the road.

And yet people like THINK can come up with their fucktarded victim blaming crap and think it's ok.
