Very true. A few years back a young lady in a nearby community pulled out of a driveway in front of a loaded tandem axle dump truck. Unfortunately, she did not survive the accident. This was on an access road that ran parallel to the "main" road. It was broad daylight, the truck was not speeding (not even close) and there was nothing to obscure the view. This was long enough ago that she was not texting either. She just looked, but didn't "see".
