VIDEO: Here’s Why You Should NEVER Cut Off a Semi-Truck…A Very HUGE Why!

VIDEO: Here’s Why You Should NEVER Cut Off a Semi-Truck…A Very HUGE Why!

The number one skill in driving is to be aware of your surroundings and other drivers at all times. This driver failed epically in that department. Would you have done this? Scroll down for video.

The silver car moves from the far right lane of traffic into the middle lane and then into the far left lane, however, the driver apparently didn’t look to see if there was another vehicle in the left lane before crossing over — or perhaps they looked, saw the semi-truck, and thought they could cut it off.

Semi-trucks obviously cannot stop on a dime, so the one in this video had no choice but to ram into the back of that silver car, sending it into the guardrails before it swerved back onto the road.

The Facebook user who posted the video said that no one was injured in the accident, despite how bad the wreck appears from the footage.

Those who don’t think they need to check their mirrors and the other lanes of traffic before making a move are endangering all of us. This driver is fortunate not to have been harmed for his foolishness. But it could have been much worse. Always be aware of the entire situation before changing lanes.
