Astonishing!! I would guess that when you see the word MACK sideways and moving straight toward you at a high rate of speed ,that is about your last vision. There is no way to figure out when our number is up. Mike

Did you have to wire them in for that, or did you just plug them into 12 volt outlets? Do they do a good job?

Truck driver should have known better than to swerve around with a load of cement..

Edit: I guess that was a bit of quick judgment. I've got over 800,000 miles in a bread truck so I've had my share of evasive action. In a split second it boils down to, is it gonna be him or me? and how hard can I crank this wheel without loosing control. And there is - just brace for impact. Had that happen too, in a blizzard when a plow truck was stopped in my path and I slid into the back of it.

Smitty, you weren't the truck driver, were you???
:shock: :shock: :shock:

A friend of mine drove cement trucks. He had a passenger car try to squeeze by him while he was stopped on a narrow side street. The passenger car hit his own side mirror on the truck's bumper.
The driver told the cops the truck rolled into his mirror!
My friend was fired from the cement company. They have a zero-accident policy. Surprised me that they took the side of the passenger car's driver, though.
