Ooh, I just heard on the news that an 8 year old boy was killed when he turned into the path of a backhoe. His younger sister was hit too, but is in fair condition. I've seen those things go by on the road at 25mph. (I know because I was going downhill on my bike and one behind me stayed disconcertingly on my tail the entire time and was actually closing on me before I turned.) It scared me because they sit so high that there is nothing to hit before it goes over you. Just big tires. You could kill an SUV in one of those things.
