I just wanted to share this with the group.
There was a biker accident in a town near me.

Situation
1. The biker was traveling in the blind zone of a truck on a 4 lane street in a small town. (picture only shows part of the lanes)
2. The truck made a right turn across land into the biker.

Fortunately the biker was not seriously injured. We have all been in a situation similar to this.
When traveling in heavy traffic zones:
1. Avoid the bind zones of the other driver.
2. When uncertain make your presence know. (horns, lights)
3. Always try to maintain that buffer zone between you and traffic around you.
4. Expect the unexpected.
