close one...

almost ended up in jail





not really but if the moron driveing the ranger in cambridge today would have been a 1/2inch more over i would be. went to pick a buddies dads new bike up by kitchener on the way back some asshat decided to not slow down for a car turning right ahead of him but to move to his left which was my lane. seen him comeing over went to the left the tiny bit i could with the other traffic and he clipped my mirror... i now know a ranger mirror just fits under a superduties mirror all it did to mine was scratch the underside of the mirror.



of course as soon as it happened the guy bolted took the next right and disapeared... but got his plate (2 others in my truck) reported it so he wouldnt or couldnt say i did a hit and run.

dont know how he didnt hit the u-haul trailer as its fenders are wider then my mirrors had to have been close and my buddies dad (one of the others in the truck) almost lost it new bike in the trailer if he would have wrecked us it wouldnt have been pretty for him



how the hell do you miss a black superduty that sit's over a foot taller then you with loud exhaust ???? pulling a white and bright orange trailer... ???

I live between Cambridge and Brantford, I do a lot of work in Guelph so I have to travel
around Cambridge ,there seems to be a lot of real crappy drivers in that area.
The last few years I started taking all the back roads outside of town to avoid
all the idiots there.
By the way ,what colour Ranger was it ?
My nephew drives a silver one. I'll check his mirror

..... it was a silver/grey extended cab... looked to be about a 2003ish year going from the back but hard to tell

it appeared to be a younger guy..... you know with the big trucker had flat brim and on crooked....

just glad no damage to the truck (mine) besides the scratches which are in an area almost impossible to see and on plastic so wont rust

I guess he figured he was the only one on the road that day, so who gives a shit about anyone else? lol

Good eyes, at least you were paying attention, glad to hear everyone's OK.

nope wasnt snowing yet at the time was overcast but no snow






yeah im on the road alot for work so im always looking around



even if he did hit me it wouldnt have done much to my truck but would have been a bad day and even worse if the bike in the trailer was wrecked (no insurance on it yet)
