I explained it above, and it wasn't on a long straightaway. Are you looking for oncoming vehicles in the breakdown lane when you are merging onto a busy highway? No, you're looking over your left shoulder.how did the driver not see a truck driving the wrong way coming at him? they were on a long straight away, other drivers were actively moving out of the way. .
but it is probably at best a rhetorical question, because the driver was on a test drive, so was obviously distracted checking out the vehicle and not paying attention to what was happening around him.
