Video: Impatient driver coming off second best to truck

REMEMBER- when it comes to a B-double versus anything smaller, the former usually wins.

This video was shot by a motorist on their dash-mounted camera on  Thursday afternoon and is a stark reminder never to go up on the inside of a turning truck.

The footage, shot at the busy intersection of Victoria St and the New England Highway through town shows what appears to be a Southern Downs Regional Council vehicle turning left onto the highway as a semi is making the same turn.

The driver of the smaller truck was lucky to sustain only front end damage to the vehicle but doubtless had some explaining to do to the boss.

Please take care on our roads this long weekend and at all times.
