A 16-wheeler truck driver misjudged as he was changing lanes and may have thought I was behind his truck (even though the daylight running lamps are on) and started to move while I was abreast with his last 2 rear axles. I was glad the person used the turn indicators/blinkers but started to move after the first blink. Lucky I was able to slow down fast enough in the R171 and let him make his lane change. I didn't even have enough time to honk the horn.
I wonder if the small size of the R171 make the car look like it was further away to the rear. All I could do was shake my head and carry on as usual, thankful for the brakes on the R171.
