THERE AINT NO STOPPING WHEN THERE BIG RIGS ARE MOVING.
Quote: AUSTRLIAS HOT ROAD TRUCKERS
I've been to Australia and never seen a small truck back over a Kangaroo before, as for the oversize roadtrain sign on the front it looks like an average tipper artic to me.
However In Quote: AUSTRLIAS
this might be a big truck. and the kangaroo may have fainted.
The "oversize" warning is due to the total width of the vehicle being greater that 2.4 metres. The "Road Train" sign means that the prime-mover (or tractor in US speak) is hauling at least 2 and as many as 4 trailers, each up to 13 metres in length and weighing up to 40 tonnes.
So, yes, it is a little truck of somewhere between 60 and 250 tonnes gross vehicle mass that is just about to avoid some very common Aussie road-kill. These rigs have enormous momentum and require a great amount of skill from the driver.
Now who was the lucky photographer to come across a scene like this when it had just stopped raining? Rain here is almost as scarce as hens teeth.
I was lucky enough to take a trip out about 2 years ago and the rain had just passed as we started to drive again.
thanks for the comments keep them comming more australian pics soon
