This was a reenactment video we did for a case where the oncoming driver claimed the tractor trailer rig was invisible for lack of side lighting along with claiming the truck headlights blinded him making the trailer invisible. We used the same truck, same driver, same sight distance and driver eye level, and same conditions of darkness.
