u/lonehorse1 Oct 07 '22

It depends on the evidence to prove the driver attempted to prevent the crash and not driving wrecklessly. In the case of the video, most likely the on board systems were going crazy with alarms (yes they have crash mitigation systems on board) that triggered the brakes and had a marker of sorts in the computers.

Can confirm this. I accidentally rear ended a truck recently (just the head, no cargo attached) and the driver had a dash cam cause it was a company truck.

Side note, no idea why people go out of their way to be assholes to truck drivers… they’re usually so nice and courteous on the road in my experience. the driver of the truck I rear ended was so nice to me even though I was obviously at fault.

I don't think this guy was trying for a lawsuit, I think he was trying to "punish" the truck driver for using the left lane.

I thought it looked like he was trying to brake just enough to be a pain in the ass without actually getting hit by the truck which wouldn't work for a lawsuit.

My former husband to use to do this when he was driving and it scared the s*** out of me.

I really think it was some sort of passive aggressive behavior on his part, and ignorance in thinking that whoever rear ends you is automatically at fault.

It's more often than not an attempt at a lawsuit against the truck driver since a lot of accidents from behind are usually seen as the person who's "following to close" being at fault. They think theyll get some damage to the back of their car and get paid but these idiots don't realize a lot of trucks have dashcams to prevent these lawsuits.

u/To6y Oct 07 '22 Starry I'd Like to Thank...

I worked at Putzmeister America for several years, building trucks like this one.

It's extremely solid steel. The panels on the pedestal (the base) are over 1" thick even on the smaller trucks, and they're doubled up in many places. The telescoping front legs are essentially solid. The rear legs swing out, and are often filled with water to add stability while pumping.

The pipes have to hold ~1600psi internal pressure from the concrete, and the boom needs to be able to support the weight of itself + the pipes + the concrete while fully extended. The base has to be strong enough not to rip apart while that's happening, and it has to be heavy enough that the whole thing doesn't tip over.

18 wheelers can be heavier, depending on the load. My state allows up to 80 tons.

Found this pdf on Google for something that looks similar: 6 axles and approximate weight 116k lbs. Also found a smaller here at 54,600 lbs.

I also realize as I finish this you said 80 tons? So 160k lbs? I'd bet they're B-trains or have several extra axles for weight distribution, not a typical 18 wheeler.

48

u/Goalie_deacon Oct 07 '22

Although this 7 axle truck doesn’t have dually wheels. I’m thinking the machinery is too wide, forcing them to add axles to get enough wheels under the weight. I went looking, this truck is about 30 tons total weight.

Far too much to mess with like idiot in video, but far short of limits across most roads.

85

u/Bowtieguy_76 Oct 07 '22 Today I Learned

But it does... the very back axle is a tag axle so it has single wheels & that's why it was the only one to lock up.

The 3 axles in front of it are dual rear wheel axles & the front steering axles are "Super Singles" which are heavy duty wide tires that will hold a lot of weight.

u/filthyheartbadger Oct 07 '22

u/To6y Oct 07 '22

I'm guessing this is confusing for people who don't know concrete pumps.

"61 meters" refers to the range of the boom when it's fully extended.

"52 feet" is the length of the truck it's welded to, including the cement hopper sticking out the back.

To clarify, a fuck ton is any massive weight that looking at it makes you go "fuck" and it heavily depends on the subject. For example, 2 tons of vehicle is probably 2-3 cars, no big deal. 2 tons of human finger nails is in fact a fuck ton of human fingernails.

I was surprised to learn many life insurance policies do actually pay out for suicide - provided there's some reasonable time from you getting the policy. From what I understand, it's got something to do with suicide being seen as caused by a mental illness, and you can't really not pay life insurance if someone passes away from an illness.

That should be legal.

I never thought I would hate people this much when I got my CDL. Just once a year, let every driver have one getaway clean card with these fucking shit stains.

Unless this was an attempt at an insurance scam the car driver was missing more than a few brain cells pulling that stunt.

Far less lethal ways to pull an insurance scam. This guy’s just lost his head I think

Excellent track. One of my all-time favorite 90s songs

u/Dogs-4-Life Oct 07 '22

The music video is peak 90’s.

u/StrawberrySlapNutz Oct 07 '22

I just watched Virtual Insanity by Jamiroquai a couple hours ago because I wanted to share it with my wife. Now New Radicals? I'm gonna shit my pants if I run into Bare Naked Ladies or 3rd Eye Blind by the end of my shift.

The minimum punishment for doing this should be a 1 year license ban. Public transit, bicycles and rollerblades only.

THANK YOU. Don’t brake check the guy but I can understand the frustration. Then look ahead and see another big rig hogging the left lane. I thought these guys had governors what are they trying to pass? If cutting through traffic doesn’t save time, why are big rigs passing on the left during high traffic situations?

If your camera was able to get the license number, I would send the video to your state highway patrol. They could ticket him.

I wanted them to get hit. Not injured

u/BrobaFett21 Oct 07 '22

Why the F do the dumbasses driving that like morons then go on to brake check the person they just cutoff as if they were getting revenge for nothing? Dude deserves to get demolished by the truck.

u/khast Oct 07 '22

It's why I won't drive without a dashcam. People want to drive like idiots, I'll let them tell their side of the story to the officers and then offer the dashcam footage.

u/xeq937 Oct 07 '22

This should be immediate jail time.

So assuming he's mad at the truck for being in the left lane ... does he not see the seven cars ahead in the lane that are also trying to pass? What's his plan, phase through them? The truck wasn't stopping him from doing shit.

Should be legal to run people like this off the road

u/oliverhanseno Oct 07 '22

sorry if i sound foolish here, but i’ve never understood the whole idea of “brake check”. ?maybe because i’m a simple Dane, and it simply does not exist in our country…

u/SomeMajor5263 Oct 07 '22

Need a law put in place that allows truck drivers to just plough straight through these chucklefucks

u/Admirable_Twist526 Oct 07 '22

IF the traffic were to stop, and I were that truck driver, I believe that I would have to drag that effer out of his jeep and give him a beatdown

u/AptoticFox Oct 07 '22

I would love to hear that the truck also had dash cam, and that this asshole permanently lost the right to drive. Plus jail time for reckless endangerment or something.

Or maybe someone beat the crap out of him.

I'm going to guess more like nothing happened.

This is what happens when the populace doesn’t understand basic physics, or that the world does not revolve around them.
