This Truck Hopes To Make Driving On The Highway Much Safer
Jun 22, 2015
A single lane on each side of the road, with only a thin line of paint to separate them, is the rule in many parts of this country and many others. When you come upon a slower vehicle, your only options are to patiently drive behind them, or attempt a risky pass by driving in the oncoming lane. Samsung has devised a new system for their shipping trucks to try to make this process safer, which they demonstrate in this cool video.
Many of us live in big cities or populous suburbs. When we get on the freeway, it’s several lanes wide and large, slow-moving semi-trucks stay over to the right. There’s a barrier in the middle to protect you from oncoming traffic. Outside of these populated areas, it’s a different story.
