Guys there was no other possible option! Once you miss your exit you're stuck on the highway until you die.
Like that episode of dr. Who
Definitely one of the more far fetched episodes.
Why the hell did they have a song of prayer in AMERICAN traffic?!
Did they even have the steering wheels on the left?
Why couldn't they just FLY HIGHER?
Ya know, it’s actually the only one I’ve ever seen. But I’ll take your word for it
No you aren't. You just have to drive around the world until it comes up again.
Life in the fast lane.
Aw look at those helpful drivers trying to get him to his exit
You are right...repost this on humans being bros. :-)
This should be an automatic revoking of license.
Life denial of any transport licence.
What do you even do in this situation if you're behind this idiot??
I don't fucking want to be there. I guess I'll just ram my way past. Rather be fucking with my insurance company then be dead after getting rammed by a semi.
Tough call. I would like to think I would try to evade on the shoulder and if i end up clipping the moron so be it. Either way, fuck this person with no lube. Totally entitled dip shit.
Looks like China. Unlikely to happen since things work based on personal influence down there. You could murder someone in broad daylight and get away with it provided that your dad is high up enough. This video is such a small matter that everyone involved will get a big payoff and they'll forget about it.
Or the automatic revoking of his/her brain...oh wait, he/she has none.
Happened to me last year. Car in front of the truck in front of me stopped to merge two lanes to catch the exit they missed 75% of. I rolled to a stop behind the truck and looked in my rearview just in time to see a tractor trailer barreling down on me and smoke billowing from its tires.
Ended up rear ended by a tractor trailer that had been rear ended by another tractor trailer. Wrote the truck off pretty quick.
Im actually very glad you're still here to post this.
He's lucky and you're kind.
Thank you. I just wish the best for my fellows. We're all on this rock together, might as well help each other out.
I'm kind of happy about it too! Even though the $650 tow bill and writing off the truck was less than ideal at the time.
Truck also had suicide doors that were fused closed due to the bed of the truck crumpling around the back hinges, so it was a ton of fun emptying the backseat out lol.
God damn. That's why I always eye my rearview when I'm forced to stop in a moving roadway. There may not have been much you could have done, I've had the same thing happen, though with two cars and not two semis.
But there's always the chance you might be able to dodge onto the shoulder, or into another lane if you're lucky. So ever since I got hit I've always made it a point to be aware of who's behind me and how far they are.
It probably won't make a difference, but I like to imagine it will prevent me from becoming a semi sandwich at some point in the future. Glad things worked out for you, though. Idiots on the road are always trying to find new and innovative ways to get others killed.
I do this too, but for a different reason. My logic is that if I'm going to be rear ended, I should have my head and back against the seat so I at least don't get whiplash. I can deal with my car getting beaten up, but I'd rather not have to deal with health problems for however long.
I actually braced myself as I saw it coming and thought later that it was probably a stupid thing to do because I was tensing all of my muscles in my arms, neck, and back in an attempt to keep myself as stationary as possible.
No glaring long term effects from the accident though, so maybe it wasn't such a bad thing.
Yeah, it's definitely better to be relaxed if an accident happens. I'm glad it turned out okay though!
It's hard to say honestly. I think it's probably a matter of where the damage ends up, rather than the degree of damage. Ideally you'd want it spread across the whole body, I'd think. But the nature of seatbelts, airbags, and the human body concentrates all the force in the torso, causing the head to whip about like a yoyo.
I'd think bracing your head against the headrest would allow for more resistance against snapping forward, with low speeds. But relaxing your body and allowing your whole torso, neck and all, to move forward as one into the airbag would create the least amount of stress, allowing you to survive harder impacts.
I remember when taking my road test, they drilled it into you that you are constantly watching behind you as well as in front. The examiners would watch your eyes and if you weren't looking in the mirror every few seconds, you were docked points. I still keep an eye on what's behind me constantly, it's bizarre to me that not everyone does.
Some places don't test you on that. They didn't for me. My dad taught me the six second rule. Every six seconds, you spend 3 of them on the front, and 1 on each mirror. When your speed increases, decrease the interval. That teaching helped a lot, but it definitely wasn't mandatory.
I generally try and keep a high level of awareness while I'm driving as well. I still constantly check my side and rearview mirrors just to give me a good spatial awareness of where other vehicles are, even though that can change instantly.
This situation unfortunately was in the middle of a 5 lane highway with a speed limit of 100km/h and by the time I gently rolled to my stop and noticed the semi, I only really would have had time to make a blind merge. Felt it better to take my chances between the semi and the pickup ahead of me lol.
It wasn't until after I got out and the police and fire crews had blocked off 3 lanes that I realized there was another semi pressed against the back of the semi that was pushed into me.
That sounds like a nightmare experience. I have to say you did the right thing, though. Maybe swerving would have gotten you out of there, or maybe it would've killed someone else. Between the two choices you made the more selfless one. I'm glad it didn't end up hurting you.
After being rear ended by a tractor trailer while stopped earlier this year I can only image the force of being hit by two of them. Glad to see you made it through that.
Got what they deserved, feel bad for those that ended up delivering it though.
It is really satisfying that the guy he forced to stop seems unscathed.
THIS HAPPENED TO ME
Some dumbass came to a complete stop and I got rear ended, then the chuckle-fucker that was going 0 mph on the freeway just drove off.
Insurance covered everything and I was 0% at fault but 6 months later and we found out my mother was likely injured in the accident.
Fuck these people
Some chick did this right infront of me maybe a month ago. I stopped in time but it's fucked up when you see an open hwy and someone complete stops for no reason
Remember people: It's okay to take the next exit, re-enter the highway in the other direction and take the correct exit from there.
Yeah, but that’s like really inconvenient for me. /s
I am important and I am in a hurry!!!! AAAAAH!
Except for the Seattle, Redmond Washington area a few years back. There was on exit, but no onramp on the other side.
I missed my exit and the sign said the upcoming exit was the last one before the bridge into Seattle. I took the exit, but couldn't get back on the freeway.
I just tried to find it on a map, but can't, so maybe they've fixed it now.
I've had an uber driver do this when I was a passenger on my way to a wedding, but luckily no crash. Just a lot of angry honking. Dude kept asking me for directions when he has his uber app GPS right fucking there
He could have merged when the first truck passed. Driver had to be extra stupid though.
I love it
My girlfriend rear ended someone like this and ended up losing a million dollar lawsuit because she didn't stop in time
Technically you're supposed to be able to stop even if the car in front of you slams on the brakes... you don't know if it's a real emergency or just stupidity :( still shitty that it happened though.
That's fucked up
He was just checking how well his brakes work when he also checked the other car's airbags too! Wow such a considerate person checking to see if your airbags work.
Don’t get me wrong, this guy is an absolute idiot for stopping like this but that doesn’t mean the people behind aren’t still at fault. The cammer was able to stop successfully, why couldn’t the other cars too?
Also, the two white cars both tried to pass dashcam vehicle, so perhaps no attempt to stop was even attempted.
This happened to my mom. Some person made an illegal u-turn. Everyone had to slam on their brakes and my mom was behind the idiot. Eventually my mother was rear ended by the land Rover that hit her (and the land Rover was rear ended too).
Idiot made the u turn eventually and just drove away. I was livid when heard this story. It was I think my mother's third accident in 5 years. Fuckin Florida man...
Worst superhero ever
Three idiots in one clip. The driver who brakes in the middle of the highway, the moron who tries passing on the shoulder, and the dipshit who doesn't understand the term "following distance" or "defensive driving" and rear-ends the car at the standstill.
Under the assumption that the car on the shoulder was not attempting to pass but had to veer to the left to avoid a collision, they're still an idiot for not allowing enough room to break.
seeing as the stopping was more or less gracefully and there was quite a bit of time between the stopping and the crash (camera even skips for an unknown amount of time) I'd say they were both speeding, distracted (cell phone) or both
He almost made it there! Just one more push...
The stupidity of some people is really baffling. Holy shit...
You know this wouldn't have happened if he had his blinker on... everyone know that gives you the right of way.
Yes engineers, yes politicians, but fuck me if left-lane stoppers aren't the absolute worst humanity has to offer
What do you mean engineers ?
A couple weeks back all 3-4 cars in front of me started stopping or pulling into my lane (right lane on US highway). I slammed the brakes, but then continued on at about 40mph. There was a car completely stopped in the passing lane(left lane). As I passed, I, with my windows closed, was able to smell a strong smell of marijuana. I called the police on them, but they started driving and passed me. I slowed down because I didn't want to be anywhere near them.
Something weird about a glitch in the video right before impact and then two cars slipping past the cammer and hitting the parked car.
I think that would be the sideswipe impact.
Okay so like yeah hes an idiot for stopping dead in the street but why in the world would that white car just fucking ram him?
assume the guy with the camera is in a big van. the car can’t see in front of the van? it just sees the van stop in the road. so instead of taking that as someone stopped for another car, he probably assumed it was just the guy who is videoing stopped and went to swerve around him back into the lane he just was in, making him crush the white car.
That makes sense, didnt think about that
Is it really that hard for people to just get off at the next exit and back track?
I absolutely love this, they went past the dude who had to stop and hit the idiot. Absolutely perfect
I'm happy that those cars missed the guy stuck behind that asshole, and drilled him instead. Instant Karma.
Ive seen assholes like this in the wild and they deserve nothing less
The stupidity of some people really amazes me..
Surrounded by bad drivers, poor op
Well at least they got pushed towards their exit.
Hey ready for trouble inhales MAKE IT DOUBLE
Love how the two white cars were like “man fuck this guy”. BOOM
FOR THE LOVE OF CHRIST, THERE WILL BE ANOTHER EXIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well, he made it to his exit.
I was so angry at that idiot until they got hit, now I'm happy again.
I hope everyone is ok, but I'm glad to see it paid for that in some way
Can you hear the driver? I was just sitting there, minding my own business, when 2 cars smash me from behind for no reason.
The white car was like “nope”.
They teamed up to finish him!
It’s too bad they weren’t hit harder.
