RV drivers, idiots on the road

this just happened up the road from us, wife took picture on way to get taxes done

I always watch rear tires on sharp corners...I guess RV drivers dont

I just chuckle at stuff like that.

Be sure not to help them, and chuckle more when they get the towing and repair bill.

Most car drivers just point the nose of their vehicle and expect the tail to follow. I always make wide turns at intersections, so I don't have to think whether there is a trailer on the back.

Ever see all the dirty looks you get if you pull all the way up to a stop line, and prevent drivers who are turning left from using "their" space in the wrong lane in front of you? How dare you make them go all the way around in their own lanes to turn left! I sometimes suspect they get mad at pedestrians if they can't use the sidewalk to turn right.

Considering all you need is a car license to drive an RV, these same people are surprised when they hit a post with the side of the rig between the steering axle and the drive axle because they are just pointing the nose. And never mind all those feet of overhanging vehicle behind the drive axle swinging out in the opposite direction into the adjacent lane!
Someone said "Making good decisions comes from experience, experience comes from bad decisions." I say there are three kinds of people: those who learn from their mistakes, those who learn from the mistakes of others, and those who never learn.
