    Could the forklift driver have prevented the accident? Yes. He could have stopped when the pickup stopped in mid-backup.... and he probably should have been honking as he was crossing the yard....

    Good point about the horn, or rather the lack thereof.

    It resulted in a pretty good bend in the guy's front bumper, and some orange paint scraped off the side of the forklift. Those things tend...

    Again spouting off about things you don't know, and the same tired line about "I would say it to your face" when you know damwell you wouldn't.

    You are a joke.
  10. Fenderbender at the scrapyard this morning, caught on dashcam
