You presume correctly... You can see him passing without so much as a "sorry I didn't give a #%$^ that I almost caused you to t-bone me..."I noticed that your right hand left the bar for a few seconds at the end of the video. Can I presume that you were giving the driver the universal salute to inattentive driving?
BTW, I had a similar (but not as close) encounter today with the same make/model truck. Mine was Silver, though.
I'm sure most situations are accidental, as opposed to maliciously inattentive. However, have to say -- I'm seeing more and more teenage un-guided missiles staring at their latest text, instead of the road... more mid-road makeup donners... and more telephone two-handed gesticulators behind the wheel, than ever before...I had one guy pull out just like you he saw me as he looked out the passanger window and came to a hault in the road. He was supprised I was there and he was not sure if I should go around him or just keep moving down the road. The whole time I am thinking "just get moving this is a 60mph road".
I kind of liked the second sarge's close to the morning...no way to put it into practice when it's bike v car though.I think I have to agree with y'all -- the horn was probably a bad idea... live and learn... ('live' being the operative word...)
And for those of you (old enough) that remember the original TV Series Hill Street Blues :
"Be careful out there..."
