  • Director: Hey Julia. Come on in.

  • Julia: Wow. First time in a truck.

  • Director: Are you aware of any challenges a truck driver faces when on the road?

  • Sam: Umm...

  • Alison: Not really.

  • Julia: Well, the same as any driver, I guess.

  • Director: Okay, Sam. Can you see anyone in your mirrors?

  • Sam: No. No, I can't.

  • Julia: No. I can't see anyone.

  • Director: Can you see anyone in front of the truck?

  • Alison: No. I can't see anyone.

  • Director: So you're feeling confident you would be all clear for driving?

  • Alison: Um, I would hope so. Yes.

  • Julia: Yep. Good to go.

  • Director: Okay, let's take a walk.

  • Sam: Oh, no way!

  • Julia: Oh!

  • Director: Alison Please stand up and have a look in front of the truck, please?

  • Alison: Sure.

  • Alison: Oh, wow!

  • Director: So Sam, this is Alex. He was on the motorcycle next to you the whole time.

  • Sam: That is insane!

  • Alison: I was a hundred percent sure that there was no one there.

  • Alison: I would not have seen them had I not stood up.

  • Julia: I checked my mirrors and there was no one.

  • Director: They were there. They were in your blind spot, but they were definitely there.

  • Sam: There's no way I saw that.

  • Julia: Wow!

  • Director: What will you take away from this experience?

  • Alison: I'm going to be much more aware of trucks on the road as I'm walking around.

  • Julia: I'm going to be more careful around trucks, that's for sure.

  • Sam: I mean, this whole experience has just been a real eye-opener.

Director: Hey Julia. Come on in.
