I was about 150 yards behind a truck with a grill, just like the first bit in that video.  Except it was going 55 mph when it flipped up out of the bed.

It basically disintegrated when it hit the ground.  I had enough time to stop, and it was a rural road with not a lot of traffic at the time.  So I pulled onto the shoulder as far as I could, put on the blinkers, and pushed a bunch of metal out of the traffic lanes for the guy.  Don't know if he ever re-assembled the thing.

Thankfully the gas tank wasn't attached, otherwise there could have been a much different story.

I hope that owner learned his leason when the dog hopped out the window at the stoplight.  My sister's ex-boyfriend let her dog jump out of the window while on the highway.  It survived, but it wasn't cheap.

Last clip alone makes it worth watching.  Because we've all seen that asshole driving.

That wasn't rolling coal. That was a Diesel driver hitting the accelerator to try to make it up a hill.

I see so many idiots with pickup trucks transporting grills like this. No ties. No securing it. Standing up in the bed. What are they thinking? Is there a rule that says you must be at least this dumb to be into grilling?

Well, when you encounter one when you can converse with him, please find out the answers by grilling him for us.

That Diesel driver needs to consider their automobile choices.

My CSB:  I was visiting DC, and I was driving about 80 in traffic on one of those "turnpike" things they have over there.  All of the sudden the SUV in front of me swerved into the next lane, revealing either a porta-potty or a plastic cabinet about that size standing upright in the middle of the lane.  I dodged and just barely missed it, but considering the traffic it would be a miracle if nobody behind me ran into it.

No you just missed the only rest stop on the beltway.

Wow that was boring.

meh.

Two of those drivers strike me as particular assholes for trying to pass on the right near ramps and then wondering why they got run out of the lane. Two wrongs don't make a right, being a defensive driver means expecting the right lane to be a clusterfark of unpredictability near exits.

^^ by "drivers" I mean the guys whose dashcam it is.

Boooooooooring.
Watch some Russian dash cam videos.
Those will scare the caviar out of you about driving there.

I had someone lose a couch right in front of me. When I was on a motorcycle. Having a couch spinning towards you at 55+ gets interesting quick. I dodged it, but the driver never even stopped.  Had no idea why I gave him the finger.

Don't even need to be Russian ones.
American ones are bad as well.

Love my camera. Craziest thing I caught was a roll over.

You do of course realize that "Teslacam" is an anagram of "SEAT CLAM", right?

And the Tesla driver needs to get cited for a whole lot of violations - whipping across two lanes of traffic, passing on the right, speeding.

Did you miss the part where it says these events were witnessed by a Tesla?!Tesla.
