Maybe she should spend less time yapping on her cell phone in "the cell phone lane" and more time paying attention to the road and driving properly.

Oh, really.  I was looking down the road to watch traffic, not trying to see through a screen to oncoming traffic.  All she could have done is to swerve right and take the impact on the driver's door, which would have killed her (anyway?).  No time to react, no good options.

She could have been in the proper lane, and the car wouldn't have hit her.

Instead, she opted for the fast lane, so she could hog it and drone endlessly into her cell phone without having to 'worry' about anybody ahead of her.

Thank you for conclusively demonstrating your fatuousness.
Had she:
been on a different road, she would not have been hit;
left a little earlier, she would not have been hit;
left a little later, she would not have been hit;
pulled over to take a pee break, she would not have been hit.
Had a butterfly in China flapped its wings twice instead of only once, she would not have been hit.

You said: yapping on her cell phone in "the cell phone lane" and more time paying attention to the road and driving properly.
Which was the conclusive factor?  That she was on her cell phone?  Not paying sufficient attention? In an inappropriate lane?  Or driving improperly?
Perhaps I don't see as clearly as you but I can't tell what she might have been doing wrong.  Where I live cell phones are acceptable if the driver is using them hands-free.  I don't know the laws everywhere, but she was keeping up her speed in the lane she was in, she wasn't swerving, and the car came at her from an unexpected direction.   I see nothing to support your criticism of the unfortunate driver.

Well, duh. That's proper driving technique if the guy in front of you is not breaking the speed limit as much as you want to break the speed limit. Also, talking and listening to the radio are just distractions, and keep you from driving exactly as fast as your caffeine-fueled reflexes will allow.

She was not in the appropriate lane. Cars to her right were travelling faster than her.

Had she been driving PROPERLY, she'd not have been hit. How simple is that?

Instead, she was in the lane intended for faster traffic, yapping on a cell phone (which is why she in in the lane, because too many idiot drivers think that is alright to do).

Here's a clue... when people are flashing their lights, flipping you off, or perhaps weaving a little bit behind you, and you are in the fast lane, you might just want to GET OUT OF THE WAY. People who think it's "The cell phone lane" annoy me. They make driving more dangerous for everybody.

When I do get in the fast lanes, I do it with a purpose - to pass other vehicles. I don't bother passing if I don't intend on getting by them in a timely fashion... then I get back over. If somebody is coming up fast behind me, I don't proceed with my maneuver, I wait until they pass. It's very simple, and it's common courtesy.

You're a farking idiot (and I'm putting that VERY  lightly)

How much more "properly" should she have been driving? She was NOT swerving, She was in her lane. She was going an appropriate speed (the car to her left was only going slightly faster) and the fact that the other car FLEW OUT OF FREAKING NOWHERE means she had NO FARKING TIME to react. To say that it was the DRIVERS fault is just farking stupid (Held up a rape trial or two in your day a$$hole?)

And am I really the only one to notice that the driver was NOT the only one in the car. There were at least THREE female voices in the video. One of them sounded like she was talking from a cell-phone speaker, and two sounded like they were actually in the car. At the end, there was only one screaming woman to be heard.

I didn't say it was her fault. I said if she had been driving correctly, she'd not have gotten hit. Only a moran would say that somebody driving in the southbound lane was responsible for a car launching into the air from the northbound lane. Then again, only a moran would somehow get that out of what I wrote.

I can explain it to you, but I can't comprehend it for you....

1) She was not driving in the correct lane. Slow traffic is supposed to stay to the right. She was driving slower than the traffic to her right, ergo, she was not in the correct lane.
2) My Cell Phone Lane complaint is just a generic pet peeve of mine, applied here because it appeared to me that she was "one of those types of drivers". Correct or not, it doesn't change point 1 - but in my 30 years of driving experience, people who tend to do distracting things while driving tend to move to the left lane, whether it's makeup, cell phones or reading the Wall Street Journal., because as a slower vehicle, people are behind them, not in front of them, meaning nobody is suddenly stopping in front of them where they might have to react.


Point one is the main thing. Follow the common "rule of the road" and in this instance, the probably has a story to tell her husband when she gets home, instead of being in the hospital. Chances are, somebody else gets the car in the face, but she might have avoided it.

For the record, I don't feel she DESERVED IT, just saying she might have AVOIDED IT by being a courteous driver, instead of an insufferably selfish driver.

I never said she deserved it.

I might add, that while I have a clear sight of what is right and wrong on the road, I don't go into a rage over it. Expressing a simple fact here is not the same as road raging, but judging by the reactions of some of you here, you might want to seek some counseling. The raging here over the "right" to drive slow in the fast lane seems to border on the fanatical. I hope you don't caryr that attitude on the road, where you might end up killing yourself or others because you get offended by a person flashing their lights or shrugging their shoulders at your bad driving.

This is true only on highways and freeways.  On multi-lane arterial roads, it is not the case.  From the video, there appears to be a large sign coming into view just before the crash, and I can't exclude the possibility that it is an intersection.  Maybe you know, for sure, that this is a freeway, but I do not.  If it is an arterial, and there is an intersection ahead, then she may be planning to make a left turn, in which case she is in exactly the correct lane.

As far as the person passing on her right, the road also appears to be curving to the right, so drivers in the right hand lane will be advancing even if they are driving at the same speed.  It could be that the car on her right also wants to make a left at the upcoming intersection, and is passing to make a lane change.  She is maintaining her distance behind the traffic ahead of her, not falling farther behind, so she is not impeding the flow of traffic.

Your critiques have merit if we make a series of assumptions, but those assumptions are not fully supported by the video.

Oh, really.  I was looking down the road to watch traffic, not trying to see through a screen to oncoming traffic.  All she could have done is to swerve right and take the impact on the driver's door, which would have killed her (anyway?).  No time to react, no good options.

...which makes me wonder: when you say "lesser", lesser than what exactly?

The point you seem not to be grasping - and several folks have already taken a swing at explaining this - is that, whether or not she was driving in the most perfectly courteous way, her driving had precisely nothing to the do with the disaster that followed. If anything, driving five mph faster would've made the situation worse, if only by a very small degree. Do you get this? One does not relate to the other.

yeah because that would have prevented a car from FLYING over the shrubbery in the center median and smashing into her vehicle. yes I have read all you comments and the rebuttals by the rest of the people here and I agree with them. There is nothing she was doing wrong if she was using a hands free phone which it sounds like she was since you can hear both sides of the discussion. She wasn't driving erratically... nobody was passing her and flipping her off for her driving skills. as a matter of fact it seems to me she was driving the same speed as the car in front of her in the same lane.

Why don't you go back to trolling the politics tab?

Damn, I thought this was Fark,com, not the "oversensitive whiners who like to drive slow in the left lane forums".


I'm an aggressive driver as well, but I think I speak for almost everyone when I say: dude, just shut the fark up, you god damned asshole

Genju: Wow. I've been angry about slow drivers in  the passing lane, but that didn't mean I felt they deserved a CAR to land on them!


Yes you did.  And it's ok....we all feel that way sometimes.  My particular peeve are the people that sprint up to the very end of a lane that ends before cutting over and causing everyone behind them to stop.  Something with an explosion would be more than justified in those cases.

Gee, my I didn't realize posting words to an internet forum would cause people to completely freak out.

Feel free to ignore me, if your life has been so negatively impacted by reading my posts.

As for the charge of being an asshole, I don't drive in the left lane on cruise control. I stay out of people's way. I don't yank out in front of people, and I keep cell calls to a minimum, finding a place to pull over if it is important or hanging up if it's not. I pay attention to the roads, and I extend every courtesy to other drivers that I expect in return.... but I don't ram people off the road, or tailgate them if they can't be bothered.

I guess that's too radical for you safe drivers, and it's a sin to criticize anybody who is in an accident.

Good luck out there, and as I posted before, please don't let your rage influence you on the road.

Nobody is freaking out.  Everyone just thinks you're a douchebag who likes to complain about things that aren't worth complaining over and who makes shiat up when his initial complaints are mocked.  Acceptable if you're an old lady who lives in Florida, but for anyone else what you're posting is just douchey.

Considering she did none of the things you mention here yeah it's wrong of you to criticize her for some one else flying through the farking air into the front of her car. Don't be a dick and you won't get called out for being a dick. It's that simple.

zerkalo: Your move, Russia


Russia has posted worse.  A few months ago I saw a dashcam of a car following a truck that was hauling bricks down the highway.  One of the bricks fell off the back and came right through the passenger side windshield.  The wailing and moaning that followed was the worst thing I've ever heard in my life.

Is the left lane rule in effect in Russia or do they drive on the opposite side?

MagSeven: Is the left lane rule in effect in Russia or do they drive on the opposite side?


Nah from all the dash cam videos I know they drive on the right side of the road. And use all the rest of the road when drunk or passing.

LesserEvil: Maybe she should spend less time yapping on her cell phone in "the cell phone lane" and more time paying attention to the road and driving properly.


So a car flew into her but hit her only because she was driving improperly? That's the most idiotic thing I've read on Fark in weeks...and that's really saying something.
 
2013-02-04 10:01:24 PM  
OMG. I'm not sure what's worse, not knowing what happened, or finding out she died and knowing that those were definitely her last moments alive, posted on the internet for all to see.

I realize the kneejerk brigade and derp is strong in this thread, piling on to my simple criticism of the driver, but please read everything I wrote, at the very least, before posting:

LesserEvil: I didn't say it was her fault. I said if she had been driving correctly, she'd not have gotten hit. Only a moran would say that somebody driving in the southbound lane was responsible for a car launching into the air from the northbound lane. Then again, only a moran would somehow get that out of what I wrote.


I do actually feel bad for the victims. We have no idea what caused the car to launch into the air across the median. We have no idea if this is a snuff video (honestly, that makes me particularly uncomfortable, and without a link to the original source, perhaps the mods would have been wiser not to greenlight this). I merely criticized her driving style, and I was promptly attacked for being a cad, to question people who like to drive slow in the fast lane (perhaps by a bunch of people who like to drive slow in the fast lane?).

I would also like to add that, given that this is Fark, I suggest that anybody who comes here should be prepared for snark. If you are easily offended by anybody expressing an opinion, this might not be the best place for you to be, My rant about "The Cell Phone Lane" was more about taking advantage of the situation in the video to express one of my pet peeves on the road, which is people using the passing lane as a distracted driving lane.... again, some Farkers here seem to take great offense at this, because? I guess they approve of distracted driving and hogging the fast lanes (it was a divided road, not a common-access road, therefore, it had 'fast/passing lanes')

I'd just like people to be more courteous. For that, I am attacked and called names, and somehow, just mentioning that if she'd been driving courteously, she might have not been in that lane, and been out of harms way, suddenly translates to "ZOMG! SHE'S TO BLAME!!" Seriously... WTF is wrong with you people?

At any rate, good night all. If somebody has a link to the source, please do post it.

You might be right. Had she been doing what is correct instead of what is common or trendy, she might have avoided the accident. Then again, had you spelled words correctly (doing what is right instead of what is common or trendy) you might have avoided looking like a complete douchebag. Might have been a mistake, of course, since you always follow common sense rules. Moron.

Perhaps they need stronger laws forbidding this kind of driving?

Let that be a warning to you kids out there.  Never drive in the left lane unless you are passing or you might just get hit by a car flipping over the meridian into your lane of traffic.  Now if you are in the left lane and passing then you will never get hit by a car flipping over the meridian into your lane of traffic.

Yeah because we all know nothing bad ever happens if you follow the rules right? It doesn't matter to LE that she was following traffic safely it was still her at fault for being in the wrong lane while talking on her phone. She wasn't tailgating the car in front of her or going way slower. she was keeping up with the leading car as near as I could tell and leaving what most people would consider a very safe distance.
 
2013-02-05 08:30:56 AM  
This exact same thing happened to me, but it was a deer instead of a car.  There was ZERO time to react.  Who thinks a bunch of hedges alongside a road are a good idea?

xander450: LesserEvil:  She could have been in the proper lane, and the car wouldn't have hit her.

...which makes me wonder: when you say "lesser", lesser than what exactly?

The point you seem not to be grasping - and several folks have already taken a swing at explaining this - is that, whether or not she was driving in the most perfectly courteous way, her driving had precisely nothing to the do with the disaster that followed. If anything, driving five mph faster would've made the situation worse, if only by a very small degree. Do you get this? One does not relate to the other.

If you'd like to work on this, here's a link to a quiz on grouping like things:
http://www.mytestbook.com/worksheet.aspx?topics=Reading%20Grouping%2 0l ike%20things&subject=LanguageArts&grade=3&test_id=671

Best of luck.


Not as a counterpoint, but I have avoided an accident by traveling in the left lane with 10 over the limit.  Flint I69 where on ramp dumping traffic coming from I75 and miller rd, for those that know that infamous spot marked by accident scars, I was travelling 80 in the left lane due to the traffic competing to pass each other before they even have lanes to work with.  Many drivers are too stupid to realize the on ramp starts a new third lane and push to go left immediately causing many accidents into the center divider.  A full size pick up shot past a car on a wet day and spun out when reached I69 nearly missing my rear bumper by inches.  The wife watched it happen in mirror, I looked back at the sideways sitting truck and shrugged.  Being in the right spot at the right time can save a life, but by chance in the wrong spot......

It is sad when accident causing drivers collect innocent drivers.

Yeah, I looked around and this was S. Korea. Apparently the local news said the woman is alive but in the hospital. Source was mostly Reddit and other randomass sites, so who knows?

Wow, I started reading these hoping to get an idea if anyone was hurt. I did learn that LesserEvil is worthy of being on ignore for being such a troll though. Remember, people, you shouldn't argue with crazy people.
