Just as I road past, an enormous backloader spun around and brought his scoop out over the road by about 5 feet. The problem was: I was on the road about a foot from the berm. The damn thing swung about three feet in front of me and maybe 2 feet above me. I instinctively swerved away from it, almost into a car. Scared me to death.
I'm used to cars. I've dodged wild animals. I've dealt with 'billy-bobs' but this is a new one on me.
