Why would you attempt to turn a a big truck like that around there? The driver is obviously not worthy of having a drivers license, if he's that retarded to not find a more suitable spot to turn around or go around a block or something like a normal person with common sense would. His license should be revoked, because his stupidity caused problems for how many people?

The truck driver must have had bad judgement. Actually I saw this same exact thing happen in front of my eyes, less than a year ago. A huge rig was trying to turn around on a one way street. He didn't hit anything, just scraped the parking garage. Police, fire trucks, ambulance came, it was quite entertaining to watch. Oh he did knock down a stop sign.

The only thing I was thinking was, what the hec was going on in his head to do this ?

They say women drivers are bad ??????????

Either he or the trucking company should be responsible.
