Big Truck Small Street

It's always a bit disconcerting to see a large truck heading towards you, but at least on Picton Street you know it's going slower than a bike

Because it has to squeeze round all the cars on the 'no parking' side of the road.

Incidentally, truck drivers are better than anyone else at knowing the dimensions of their vehicles. Drivers of 4X4s generally get confused by the height of their vehicle and drive too far away from parked cars, inconveniencing oncoming traffic, apart from those who underestimate and end up clipping wing mirrors and bikes. But this truck, it is managing to get past the van up on the pavement/yellow lines without doing any damage to it. Nicely done.
