    Not to absolve bikers (one myself), but what is the bet that this truck driver either made an illegal stop to pick up or drop a passenger without indicators or hazzards? I encountered a lot of trucks in Dec on the roads, and very few had all their lights etc working It is clear from experience now that the bus/truck owners and drivers don't give a hoot about anyone else sharing the roads with them, znd the Metros are only intetested in getting his taxis from point A to B and back asap to care. Seems that our roads have become a free for all
