Nearly flattened by sand truck pulling out without looking (directed by co-worker)

2 months ago...more

Riding south on A1A. A lot of beach nourishment going on, so the roads are always full of trucks full of sand headed to the beach parks. Usually the drivers are professional and respectful. In this incident a worker directs the truck driver to pull straight into the road without seeing me. The driver does not even look in my direction and pulls straight across the bike line. I was preparing to bail into the grass. Not happy. Reported, hoping the authorities will ask workers and drivers to be more careful. As usual the vehicle reg is too dirty to be readable.
