You see them every day. How often do you actually think about them? Those massive semi trucks cruising down the highway are the backbone of our nation’s supply system. Without them, that house-themed “Harry Potter” box set you just ordered off of Amazon would never arrive. Those repair parts for that MRI machine wouldn’t get there. Produce would be rotting in warehouses. They’re an essential aspect of our daily lives, but we barely notice them.
When we do, it’s usually because their ungainly size and enormous turning radius is causing them to come scarily close to us at a stoplight. But as close a shave as it can be, accidents in situations like that are quite rare. Despite their size, semi trucks can be quite maneuverable in the right hands. This particular truck is clearly being steered by someone with a lot of experience, training and confidence in his skills.
