We all should know, least all of the drivers of semitrucks, that gigantic vehicles need to take wide turns. That fact seems to be completely lost on this trucker, who simply keeps on about his business while completely thrashing a car.
The video, posted by @emfermoyy, shows all the details.

"How was your first night of work babe?" asks commenter @mrsnuggleswuggles. "This SUV wouldn’t get out of my way, but over all I think it went swell."
Reader @mykelfromtexas has a question: "Why was he driving away in the first place?"
"Wouldn’t be the first," says @staciepiersona. "A semi hit the side of my van and I ran after him to confront him. He denied it and I never got justice for it."
Viewer of the video @jrgonzalez2011 has this thought, though not verified: "The plate on the trailer does you no good, you need the plate on the actual truck."
"That’s why you’re not supposed to be on the side of a semi when it’s turning," remarks @katelyn_hebert. "There literally are warnings on the trucks about it."
Responding to this comment, the creator or the video replies, "He was running because he hit a parked car and you are not supposed to turn on red in that street."
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.
