I was with my dad in his 1976 Corvette when a dump truck backed over it and kept going until it hit the windshield.

I like how the article says "if the accident was the fault of the truck driver" . I really doubt that the Corvette driver drove under the truck.

"For whatever reason, some people find parking lots extremely difficult to navigate and it appears the driver of this Ford F-250 Super Duty is one of those people. "

Could it be that his lifted pickup truck's window is so high that it's roof-height for most small cars and well above the roof of a low-profile car so that his blind "spot" not only spans front-to-back but also up-to-down, which makes it difficult to safely turn to the right around many normal vehicles?

Give the guy a break. It's an F-250, so while we're not in micro penis territory, we are in the land of perceived shortcomings.

Truck driver was probably too fat to turn the wheel the whole way

That Vette was clearly asking for it...

fark everyone who feels some need to back into a parking space instead of just pulling in. It always takes them too long to negotiate it, backs up other traffic in the lane, and they never get the vehicle straight even after trying to straighten out a couple times.

Probably needed to adjust his truck nutz

/ if two micro-penis vehicle owners collide aren't they the only losers?

I can do it almost as fast as pulling in head first, and get it straight every time. Maybe driving isn't your strong suit?
In addition whatever extra time is spent backing in is saved by pulling out head first, with MUCH less of a chance of getting hit by someone you didn't see.

People with vehicles like that are also used to just driving over curbs and skipping parking infrastructure...there is a famous boulder in a mall that has beached multiple trucks because people try to skip a corner and the rock looks deceptively low on the approach side. Mall management is like too bad. I laugh whenever I see the pics.

I wonder which owner has the smaller dick?

There's a multiple-year wait list for the C8.

To say that I would be incensed if that was my Corvette would be to grossly understate the sheer amount of murder I would be feeling well up, all because some jackass in his dime-a-dozen lifted F250 can't drive for sh*t.

No this dude. I back in to a parking spot at my son's school 5 days a week, so I can beat the hellscape that is 50 soccer mom's. Trying to negotiate a parking lot in their giant SUVs. I don't use my backup camera, and I make it in one turn. But, I've been backing up trucks and trailers since I was about 6 years old. Grew up on a farm, and could drive the truck and tractor as soon as my legs were long enough to operate the peddles. Try backing up a 3 on the tree with a trailer behind it and 6" of clearance total and using only your mirrors, you'll figure it out........is what my grandpa told me before he jumped out of the truck.

Yup, I hate that shiat. People who buy huge vehicles and clearly do not have the ability to drive them. We watched someone try three times to park their giant truck at the grocery store today before they they got embarrassed and just drive off.

Yeah, but the owner of the vette is going to end up with a brand-spanking new one (courtesy of the insurance company) and a helluva story to tell.  Plus--just look at that car and tell me he doesn't have at least one beemer sitting in the garage at home.

/Nope.  I don't feel sorry for him.  I feel envy, LOL.

I'm sure Bubba thought the Corvette was owned by some punk rapper and wanted to make a point of who was superior.

Eff you, it's easy to pull out of and it ain't your parking lot.

I back into spots just to piss guys like you off.

You'll wait and you'll like it.
 
2021-12-04 9:44:01 PM  
Vette driver did kinda park like a dick. Angled to all hell, not parallel with the lines...

But still within the lines of the parking spot. Fords the asshole here all the way.

My still favorite passive aggressive move with asshole drivers over the lines was parking my jeeps as close as I could so the driver door couldn't open but my ass could happily exit the door less jeep. Sidle past the car and wait for the owner to biatch and complain to the bar or restaurant I was at (while outside and watching the confusion and anger hit that they ain't getting in their car)

Park like a dick and try to open your shiat. That jeep is solid steel and rusting. You ain't gonna cause much more damage to it than it's gonna do to your car.

I religiously maintain a 28-30" waist. Most sport car drivers? Do not.

We hope the damage sustained to the 'Vette is only visual and that no damage was done to any key mechanical parts, such as the suspension.

I don't know how else to say this to you, Mr. Ford F-250 driver, but prepare your anus.

As someone who has driven these ridiculous heaps around shop parking lots, I can confirm what you say.

The turning radius is usually all farked up from the camber change caused by the lift as well.

Yeah how dare he generalize that people who back in to park are jerks, you show him that you're... jerks. This does seem to be the prevailing attitude of people who back in, lack of consideration for anyone else on the road and some weird desire to show off.

It's also possible the Vette was parked straight and was pushed by the truck if the truck was backing in.

But yeah both are probably jerks who like to back in just to piss off everyone else in the parking lot waiting for them to straighten out 5 times, and neither can park straight or apparently avoid demolishing cars in neighboring spaces.

No, but it does have a backup camera and proximity sensors on the bumper... It takes an impressive effort to fail like that.

I noticed that, too. BUT
I thought perhaps the truck tried backing into the spot dragging the front left of the Vette with it and as the truck tried to proceed forward to correct the pic was taken.
Regardless, even if the Vette was parked all cattywampus it was still within its spot. So...

The F250 driver has no idea how to drive that truck. It's probably never been off pavement. Definitely a compensation truck. He should pay through the nose.

C8 driver is also compensating for something.

I drive a Mazda 3. Had a lady back into me pulling out of a parking spot. She tried to tell the cops it was my fault. She got me right at the mirror on the passenger side. If she'd used her side mirrors instead of just the one in the cabin she would have seen me.

Same with this f250. Use your farking mirrors or park next to empty spots.

Maybe; but my F-250 (not raised or longbed or anything) has wrap-around cameras, and oh lord those make parking SO much easier.

I should probably read the article and see if there is a model year for that truck, and when they started with the 360 cameras.

Some people suck at parallel parking too; what are we to do then? It is actually a lot easier to park my F-250 in reverse than pulling in. It just seems to maneuver better for some reason.

Are the Super Duty trucks really about off roading though? I'm not that much of a truck guy, but wouldn't a F-150 or a Ranger be better normally?

I sort of thought you bought one because you needed more payload or towing capacity than an F-150.

Or, of course, because you erroneously though it made you look manly.

But if you park nose in, you've then got to reverse out, causing all the same problems, and you have the disadvantage of worse visibility as compared to if you'd backed in.
