This is a re-post from January 2010, but still needed today;
Oversized vehicles need bigger spots. You get surrounded by SUVs and monster trucks and can’t see when you back out. Basically you pray you don’t get hit or run over anyone!
And along the same vein, another thought…..
Special training is required to hold a CDL, you have to pass a specific test for motorcycle endorsement in most if not all states, and based on how I’ve seen many of these larger SUV’s and Motorhomes being driven, it does make you wonder if special training shouldn’t be a requirement for driving them on public streets. Many of the drivers really don’t seem to know just where their vehicle is – this is very apparent when driving around some of the narrower roads. Many drivers literally drive in the middle of the road and are obviously unaware that they have plenty of room on the right side of their vehicle. Please jump on my Bandwagon and help me, help us, stay safe on the roads! Maybe we can make a difference and save a few lives along the way!
