This year we are celebrating our 21st anniversary in our home. A lot has changed on our road. New houses have been built and more cut-through and bicycle traffic. What hasn’t changed is the condition of the road. It is still a two-lane road without a shoulder, very narrow in parts, very dark at night, large drop offs in some areas, and animals constantly crossing it.
Recently a company has been running new overhead lines. They are using a bucket truck like the one pictured below. The second picture is an area of the road they were located. The red X marks where they were located and their truck was facing in the opposite direction of my truck in the picture. As I approached the truck from behind it was impossible to see if any cars were coming in the other lane. No one was outside the truck to direct traffic. I was able to slowly approach and get next to the bucket truck. I explained that it impossible to see if any cars were in the opposite lane and encouraged them to have someone direct traffic. A few days later, I approached them behind again and they waved me around. Still room for improvement in my opinion but better than passing blindly.
