Driver failed to check his rear vision camera prior to pulling from curb. That's if the camera was working.
Same PCM here, kids are,well, dirt bags.
How are you supposed to check your rear-vision camera when pulling from the curb when the correct method is to look over your left shoulder when pulling from the curb?
I have never heard at a PCM, or read anywhere that we should be checking our rear vision camera when pulling from the curb.
If this idiot kid got hurt UPS would be all over the driver for "not being aware of his surroundings".
So I guess now, on top of the 1000 other things we have to defend against from the really stupid public, we must clear our rear vision camera of some punk?
If I start the truck and see him on my bumper can I get out and throw snowballs at him?
I always wait until my camera has come on and check it before pulling from the curb. This may sound like it takes a long time but if you put the key in acc first as you are putting your seatbelt and then start the engine the camera should already be on by the time that you are ready to pull from the curb.
I had 2 kids on my bumper once,there was a car parked right behind me,I slammed it in reverse,rev'd the crap out of it and backed up about an inch...scared the crap out of 'em...
check monitor,left signal left mirror left shoulder...beep beep..
thats my motto...dont you mess with ups
What the driver should have done if he had spotted the kid in the rear-view camera is get out of his seat, walk quietly thru the back of the truck and throw the back doors open.
There is still snow where your at??
