Last week I the first close call,eyes wide open,butt clenching experience ive had in a long time. Im in the left turn lane comming to an intersection w/a red light. Letting off at about 50mph..coasting to the red light. All traffic was stopped except me in the turn lane. All of a sudden a semi w/no trailer...(Werner) decides he want to go to Bob Evans and from a dead stop pulls out at 90° right in front of me while I was at about 40-45 mph. Hit both brakes and im convinced ive never slowed down or stopped that quick with any mt. I belive I woukd have broadsided that tractor if I had a mt on. It def stopped me fast.
I followed him into the parking lot and as I pulled up he rolled his window down and was saying sorry ..his bad yada yada. I just shook my head and said ... Bro...your the last guys I expect to do something like that...your professional drivers! Then I just left. But it did put me back on high alert. Havent been scared like that in awhile.
My ct is here to stay.
