One great concern of many motorists involves trust in our brakes. If those fail, what do we do? How do we react? The fear is magnified if other lives besides our own are at stake. But imagine if you are in a large semitruck, the brakes fail, and you are barreling toward a school bus. It's hard to even think about.
Posted by TikTok user @coreyfoskett, the video below is scary to watch but is an example of quick thinking and attention to detail.

Notes in the comments indicate that viewers of the video are impressed with the reaction of the truck driver. We'll also note that no drivers around the bus did anything dumb, but basically managed to stay just enough out of the way to allow room for the truck driver to pull this off. That is commendable as well.
"Good driving," writes commenter @jabbatheslut1234.
"Well done, driver!" says @bevan829108.
"Good thinking," writes @ged529. "Sounding the air horns giving warning that there is a problem."
We post videos such as these as part of our coverage because we hope there are specific behaviors drivers can learn and implement to help make our roads safer for all of us.
