With almost twice as many comments as upvotes I think that's what happened here. Getting behind the wheel of a car is a huge responsibility and should not be taken for granted.

Because I'm such a nerd, I paused the video to find clues to where this video was taken. The semi to the right reads "de Vreese". I did a search for the log go and it came up as a logistics company out of Belgium. It says they provide transport services throughout Europe. So I guess this is somewhere in Europe?

That is a Ford Focus that crashed. Ford Focuses have steering wheels on the left side of the car cab, not the right.

I viewed the you tube, the driver was seriously injured but survived. You do take your life in your hands anytime you get behind the wheel. A car can be likened to a loaded weapon. Handle with care and stay alert.

I didn't get hurt, just the car. But if traffic would have been in the fast lane I was slanted to have my drivers side be the new point of impact.

My daughter was in a rollover accident three years ago. She and her boyfriend were both thrown from the car. He died and we nearly lost her too. But she is back to her new normal, as you said, and doing great.

It took a long time for our daughter to recover. 4 months in hospital and nursing home. Then we moved her home, and then her friend since 3rd grade starting coming around to cheer her up. That resulted in this event this July. :-)

@ghost in regards to people stealing tanks. yea I know it's happened before. :( but in some countries overseas it's the other way around, and people don't expect to see tanks, and will accidentally drive into them, which is what that's a pic of.

Another good reason not to drive distracted: you don't always know what's coming up on the shoulder. I've been driving down the highway and passed bicyclists and even people just walking along on foot. If I wasn't paying attention and drifted a little bit onto the shoulder I could have killed them. (For some reason I seem to see the most hitchhikers and vagabonds in Oregon)

If you're with your friends don't let them act a fool in the car when you're driving. Keep an eye on your mirrors to make sure you have a general idea of where traffic is behind you, but always focus on what's in front of you.

Unfortunately it's usually the other driver you have to watch out for. Cars today are built much safer though. Crumple zones, multiple airbags, auto-braking in some models and more.
reply
8 ups, 1 reply
That's true! ;D
Also, I'm making sure to stay off of drugs and alcohol because of their influence on the brain, and what it does to distract drivers. =O
Fortunately, if I'm with friends and driving, I'll drive. I'll make sure not to drink ;D
reply

well in all seriousness, they could have just as easily looked FORWARD to the right, and seen that traffic was stopped there as well... :/ process of elimination. so there are multiple ways to be aware and safe while driving, especially around semi's. Most important is to just follow what the semi's are doing. That's what I do.

Accident with car that changes across multiple lanes to take an exit without knowing there's a truck stopped in the exit lane, the driver was in a serious condition but did not die.

The video isn't meant to be funny. Other drivers have put my life at risk 3 times in the last year alone by taking unnecessary risks, including just this past Thursday. I also did a don't text and drive meme.

I'll consider that for future gifs, but you misunderstand the intent.
