You are cruising along a 2-lane road. Ahead in the distance you see a truck passing another truck. Neither of you have time to stop, What do you do ?

Take to the shoulder and drive like I'm on my dirt bike. Anything beats hitting a tractor-trailer rig head on.

Flip off the truck as you become a new hood ornament

My first thought was to run between the 2 trucks but usually on a 2 lane road there would not be enough room. So the next best thing would be to run off the road cause like photobug said anything is better then hitting a truck.

I'd rather take the off-road route and take my chances there. Nothing off the road is going to be moving as fast as that semi headed at ya!!

I'd do one of those MI2 moves ... Rolling stopie with the glock in one hand capin off some rounds at the a$$hole in the truck as I'm flickin the stopie in the other direction to haul a$$ At least that's what they tought me to do in this type of situation at the MSF course.

Jeesh superman! Why not just snap the rear around and lowside under the frontbumper, let the truck pass over you (all 4 axles) then roll it back up on to wheels when the rig is clear? Wouldn't that be easier and less risky?

If I couldn't do either of the 2 options, I would settle for slamming on the brakes and veering on to the shoulder. Hopefully keeping it on 2 wheels so I could get the tag and sue for emotional distress and damages. Plus replacement for my undies and shorts which would undoubtably be stained!
