Set off from the lights, everything was stationary. When the truck first overtakes it gives room but when it's a third of the way past it starts moving back into the shoulder which I already occupy. When I notice the angle that they are swinging towards me at, I get the hell out of the way into the nearby filter lane. Notice the big dump truck on the back of the truck, which was overhanging wider than the base, at around my head height.

Cops gave the driver an infringement for this one. Driver was apologetic and said they hadn't seen me in their mirrors, which was strange as they had just overtaken me at slow speed so they knew exactly where I was without any mirrors.
