Driver at Keppel Rd finds out the hard way why it's a bad idea to be in lorry driver's blind spot

There is a very good reason why drivers are told to always stay clear of heavy vehicles, and stay out of such vehicle drivers' blind spots.

Sadly, not all drivers follow these golden rules of the road.

Take this photo posted on Singapore Road Accidents for example.

The image shows a car that has collided with a lorry at Keppel Road.

The load of dirt the lorry was carrying has spilled onto the car as a result of the impact.

Netizens pointed out in the comments section why this was a good example why a driver should test neither his skills nor his luck near a heavy vehicle.
