magtec: you haven't lived until you've narrowly avoided being smeared by a wrong-way driver barreling down a highway on-ramp at night. minnesota, US highway 10 eastbound onto 694 eastbound before the interchange was fixed, the ramp merged with the left lane so you had to be going the speed of traffic when you got to the top. i was in a saturn station wagon, wrong-way dude was in an SUV. all i saw was headlights coming at me at about 60mph, my brain was all "i see headlights. i shouldn't be seeing headlights. why am i seeing... oh @$%!". yanked the wheel to the left and hit the shoulder, the SUV blew past and kept going the wrong way down highway 10. he never braked, never swerved, never even flinched. still no clue what the hell happened that night, but it was one hell of a sober six hour drive afterward.
busy chillin': daaaaaaaaaaaamn!/and I clicked that play button jpg 3 times before I realized Im a idiot
Oldiron_79: Worst wreck I seen was a roll over with a pickup whose bed was full of illegal mexicans. There where body parts strewn all over the highway.
Carn: WordyGrrl: Carn: WordyGrrl: SevenizGud: The guy with the camera driving did a pretty good job. He sees trouble essentially instantly, and he moves his car to the right.It's a pretty good lesson for drivers ed. You have to pay attention ALL THE TIME, because there is no limit to human stupidity.Very much this. You may be a wonderful driver, but would you bet that everybody else on the road is, too? No. You should assume everybody else is an unpredictable, possibly intoxicated idiot who's speeding and texting.I always assume everyone around me is trying to hit me. Around DC that assumption is correct far too often sadly. I've been in a serious accident before so I'd rather be late than dead.I've driven in DC before and it is definitely insane. Keep your wits about you in that mess. Plus, if you miss your exit, you'll end up in another state.Truth. And some people will try to back up to get to it./seen that many times//yikes
Summer Glau's Love Slave: Y'all be a slippin'
Lsherm: Scary as fark, and I was in a 1986 Fiero, so I would have been plastered by the pickup truck if we had hit. To this day I'm paranoid about making sure I'm hitting the correct ramp, but signage and foliage are a lot better these days.
Phoenix87ta: I Like Shiny Things: UncleStumpy: FormlessOne: hugram: busy chillin': daaaaaaaaaaaamn!/and I clicked that play button jpg 3 times before I realized Im a idiot/ your a idiot.// I did the same same./// your a idiot anyway.Might as well lump me in that group, too - clicked it once, before I scrolled down to find the actual video.Me too. Two or three times. Like the driver, I'm not awake yetI'm a Linux tech so I figured it out right away.I'm also a Linux tech, and I clicked it at least five times./been a long day...
ArcadianRefugee: busy chillin': daaaaaaaaaaaamn!/and I clicked that play button jpg 3 times before I realized Im a idiotThat. Except I went through the process of permitting more and more sites (NoScript) before I just said "fark it" and abandoned the site as a piece of shiat.
sheep snorter: When using a slimjim to pop a door lock, beware of the side airbag sensor. Unless you like the slimjim being a projectile.
ArcadianRefugee: 12349876: I submitted this one yesterday. No video but one hell of a picture.[media.kentucky.com image 420x630]http://www.kentucky.com/2013/07/09/2709266/violent-wreck-at-pine-str ee t-and.htmlI see the stop sign worked.
tetsoushima: puckrock2000: Or, as it's called in Russia, Tuesday./should have let Kor drive//it would have been gloriousIt's funny. I don't speak Russian, but when I hear the drivers going on a rant about the accident they were just in, I know pretty much what they're saying.

Triumph: thismomentinblackhistory: Asia.Meh. Imagine if everybody in the U.S. used dashcams.
peeledpeas: Igor Jakovsky: The Duke Boys got nothing on this guy.LinkThat was nuthin'. This guy went air born, ripped his car into three large pieces, slid across the freeway, and lived.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FeTjXRbBHeA
fusillade762: A stray golf ball almost hit my car the other day.
Crewmannumber6: People love to talk about how litigious America is, but it seems like everywhere else in the world where dashboard cams are standard equipment. And who the fark takes a relaxing drive on a city street?
shanrick: Mock26: If someone had just had a slide whistle they would have landed just fine,linky
scottydoesntknow: Here's Kang's description of the incident, translated via Google:"North into the bridge down is the reverse, first hit the road safety, then fly hit over!""Car accident who is 71 years old man, he said he drove to sleep...Thank God willing, our family is finally nothing serious, physical pain is inevitable, more distressed that Children who suffered child frightened (fear of a psychological trauma), these need time to recover. I usually have to teach children, the car must be wearing a seat belt habits, be there to minimize the damage. However, the accident vehicle suddenly fly out, really a chance to react." That's some nice translating there, Goo.
hundreddollarman: You got killed by a Daewoo Lanos, motherfarker! How you like me now?/Hopefully not obscure.//DRTFA
CoysOdie: I want to go in my sleep like my grampa did.Not like the other 3 people in the car.
