Short and sweet, some people need to get their heads out of their a$$ and realize what a large vehicle will do, traveling as little as 35 mph. It's
gotten to the point that I have video running whenever I'm driving. See that squirrel? The flat one, with his organs splashed around him, that tried
to cross at the wrong time? There's a hint. How about that deer, lying beside the road with it's legs in the air, dead. That's about human size.
Ever seen a human that's been hit by a car? I have. It's a memory I can do without.
There are traffic lights, with cross walks, just a little way down, so why do they insist on just walking out in to the road without looking? Because
they just have to get to little Johnny"s birthday party and they're thinking " my car is right there, right across the street and it's just
too much trouble to go all the way to the crosswalk and then back down the other side "? How about you don't get there at all and Little Johnny's
birthday is ruined by two State Troopers having to tell him Mommy or Daddy is dead? Are they stupid enough to think they won't get hurt?
I've actually had people yell at me, after I've come to a screeching stop, that, "You hit me, I'm gonna be pissed!!" Umm, no, you're going to be
on the ground with multiple internal injuries, skin peeled off from sliding down the road, lying in a pool of blood, hoping someone calls 911 quickly.
You are not going to be pissed, you're going to be begging for help and hopefully re thinking your whole, "they won't hit me" attitude. That's
if you're still alive and didn't have your skull crushed on impact.
Little graphic? Some people need graphic, it seems to be the only way to get through to them.
Same goes for those who open car doors in to traffic without looking to see what's coming. You see them walk out of a store, step off the sidewalk to
their car, walk around and open the door, all without even glancing up. Or park, then just throw the door wide open and step out.You do understand
that you would be caught between a heavy metal object and a relatively sharp metal door edge? So, in your head, what do you see happening when my 6400
lb truck hits you and slams you in to that edge? That you're gonna get up and kick my ass? That you're going to sue me? Even if you do, does that
replace your legs? or put you back together as good as new? Is your family going to be happy with money instead of having you around? Is that money
going to, in any way, make up for all the agony you and your family have to go through? I am sick of having to endanger myself and my family, because
people are too god damn lazy to go to a cross walk, arrogant enough to think "they won't hit me or stupid enough to think that they're
somehow going to come out on top in that situation. If you're one of the people who do this, don't be surprised or blame the driver when it happens.
And it will, sooner or later. Not everyone has the reflexes to swerve or stop in time.
Get a clue folks. Heavy vehicle vs soft sack of meat.
You are not going to win
