Highway Lane-Changing “Tutorial” Goes Horribly Wrong


“But I’m a good driver.” You’ve probably heard people say that in the past as a reason why they can drive ‘faster’ (aka. more recklessly) than others without getting into an accident. We’re willing to bet the driver in this video thought just that.

Details about this clip, such as when and where it was filmed are unclear, but it has recently gone viral on Reddit and features a driver describing to his passenger(s) how to make high-speed lane changes on a highway while swerving through traffic. Before long, the ‘tutorial’ starts to go wrong.

For the first 30 seconds of the video, the driver slices his way through traffic without a care in the world and at times, is driving with just one hand on the steering wheel. However, at the 34-second mark, he attempts a lane change while carrying too much speed and the rear end of the car kicks out.

The driver attempts to correct the slide but is unable to keep the car under control. It ends up smashing into a concrete barrier on the side of the highway, setting off the airbags.

It’s unclear what happened after the video cut off, but we hope that no one was injured.
