Not sure how much this belongs in this thread since it's not Killboy or Dragon Related, but it is only 13 seconds long and total failure on the "rider's" part.

I think a bunch of pictures like the one above, suitably enlarged, along with "Next 30 miles" might be a good start.

Won't make a difference, truck drivers are getting dumber as the industry has declined since deregulation, and the last decade has been brutal.

A perfect example is a local bridge on interstate rte 95 has a $3000-$5000 fine for improper use by trucks.
Huge signage is posted everywhere, yet in the past 3 years, over 20,000 truck drivers have been fined for violating this bridge's weight and axle restrictions.

Why?

Easier and safer to learn not to have to. Be done with the brakes before the corner. Adding more throttle on the way out is always easier than trying to slow down more partway in.

There's no prize money, or trophy to win on a street ride.

True...BUT riding is FUN!!! At least it should be. Knowing about and using trail braking often is not only fun but it can come in handy when you come upon road contaminants (or an idiot doing a u-turn) while riding through a blind corner.

Knowing trail braking and practicing it allows for increased speed while never out-riding your sight line.

Riders that do not stay fully engaged (read: ‘ride in a lazy fashion‘) are a danger to themselves and others.

Why? It is better to be prepared for things you don't plan on encountering than to wish you were when it happens. You are in an environment where your control extends to what's between your ears. Riding well regardless of the speed is being prepared for the worst.

BTW good luck.
