PostSubject: Well., I just had an interesting morning.   Mon Apr 09, 2012 6:07 am

I'm a truck driver and was setting parked in a row of trucks, each parked back against the curb and nose out, when I was unceremoniously woke up out of a dead sleep by what I thought was the rocking of the truck. I'm out here about 20 miles from Pittsburgh, Pa and it's 5:30 local time. I get up thinking, "Do they have earthquakes out here?" Then I see the truck setting to the left of me had pulled out and when he turned sharply left the back end of his trail struck my driver's side mirror and smashed it.

We all got everything strieghtened out. We exchanged info and he went on his merry way, but that's one example of a way not to be woken up.

Ouch. Well at least he didn't take the door off your cab!

What happens in a situation like that? Do you have to get somebody to come fix your mirror? I can't think it would be easy, or legal, to drive without it.

Well he just broke the housing. The mirror was still operative. There are 2 mirrors on each side of a truck and the one that got taken out was the spot mirror. I can still drive to get it fixed. I just had to drop the trailer there and B.T. to the shop.

That does suck. I once had my side mirror torn off by a snow plow in New York.
