Let’s just talk some sense here who let’s a young 19 year old lady drive out by herself I’ll give u some idea what old school
And respect is in college we would go out and hang out if a lady inexperienced or not sure or scared was leaving the car parks I would send a tracker car down to drive in front be her marker people thesedays are too selfishh gen mee for my liking think like me ull never go wrong Rest In Peace young lady ?????

Soo sad to hear this iv been a truckie 33 odd years going back when I was carting pallets of wine for alto rest black mtn tower THE SIMPLE METHOD OF FIGHTING ROAD RUN OFF OR OVER SHOOTING A CORNER IS FINDING A LOW GEAR WHAT U CAN COAST DOWN IN ENGINE RPM. IS ALWAYS UP THUS CAUSING YOUR VEHicle to engine brake and only a light tap of brake is required I was taking up
A 8 tonne pantech poor lady my condolences go out for her hope this helps for anyone needing reassurance canberra drivers are very poor in general in the road craft dept and driving skills area???
