That does make sense but sometimes people are just dumb too 😳

A few months ago I had someone pull out in front of me at a stop sign as if they didn't see me. Now, granted I was driving a 32' sunseeker, not a 40 foot DP. But I was still pretty big compared to his civic.

Now I don't mean he ran the stop sign....he was stopped and for some reason waited until I was right there and pulled out. Straight, flat road where he could see me coming for a half mile.

Stood on the brakes and missed him by about 6 feet but had I been going any more than 35mph it would have ended badly.

It did emphasize the importance of buckling up.... Things went flying and crashing inside.

We use the airplane rule....get up when needed but when sitting buckle up....won't help in every case but might increase the odds.
