We have seen the scenario depicted above on numerous occasions. A slow-moving heavy truck and an impatient driver. The consequences of an error in this scenario could be higher when the truck is a tanker loaded with explosive cargo.
As shown below the pick-up driver has already entered into the no passing zone and the passing motion is not completed. What led to this result?
Miscalculation, misinterpretation, criminal negligence or a combination of all? Which is it? And how can it be prevented?
One of the solutions is to focus our attention on risky drivers rather than the population at large. Whether it be stunt driving at tremendous speed, high acceleration at inappropriate times and locations, or simply driving unpredictably, high risk drivers need to be identified and their actions monitored in a more focused manner than is currently taking place.
