Welcome to southern california, toyko isn't that different from our traffic. The guy has balls though, I'll give him that! I have seen squids and CHP's do some crazier stunts while splitting lanes.Wildbeast said:The US is getting that way with way too many trucks congesting up the roads during rush hour in the bigger cities. It would be nice if during heavy traffic times to limit the hours big trucks can transit through, limit them to off peak hours.
Experienced that one evening. Flat-bed tow truck stopped at a red light, but about a car length back from the limit line. He's lost...and now he needs to get out of the left lane and over to the right. No backup lights, just that beeping. Thank gawd for small favors. I'm on the horn, but he can't see me in his mirrors (taller then what my headlamp lights up) and he's got no backup lights. So, after a brief pause, continues to backup. Oh, for a reverse gear! On the horn (long blasts, brief pause, another long blast) while I'm madly backpedalling. FINALLY he turns around to look out the rear window and sees me. Was losing ground until he finally stopped.voxmagna said:They did some research recently, something anybody could have told them for free, and the most annoying thing about truck deliveries was their loud safety reversing alarms.
