  1. What amazes me at these pile ups is the speed people are going at when they can’t see past the front of their own car

  2. That one guy got so lucky. What a scary video

  3. That car at 00:38.. why tf are they going that fast in those conditions

  4. That one dude standing next to his car almost got killed! The guy recording is having some fun with the excitement, but it’s gonna start feeling cold in a hurry.

  5. The tow truck was like, “Here I am to save the daaaaaaaay! Aww shit.”

  6. What’s with the fucking idiot who gets out and stands there like he’s stopped for a cigarette break?

  7. Some of the most dangerous road conditions I’ve seen have been on PA interstates.

    They tend to be narrow and curvy, prone to thick fog and other nasty weather, tons of semi- trucks, and despite all that, drivers that continue to go way, way over the speed limit.

    I remember white knuckling it thru extremely thick fog a few times. I was less afraid of losing the road than I was for all the trucks zooming by me as if it were a normal, clear day.

  8. Snow squalls man.
    If you get the warning, get off the highway safely and park somewhere until it passes!

  9. How do people not realize that in white out conditions you need like massively increased following distance and far slower speed. SMH. RIP.

  10. Fucking Swift

  11. This whole thing is terrifying. Not too long ago we had a horrible pileup on I-80 over the Sierra Nevada and I just don’t understand how people think they’re immune from potentially fatal consequences when bad weather arrives

  12. So I’m torn here. Do you stay in your vehicle and hope for the best or make a break for it and try to get clear of the carnage and into the woods?

  13. People NEVER fucking learn!

  14. I don’t get why people seem to be driving full speed in these conditions?

  15. If you ever find yourself in a situation like this, get out of your car and run far away. The crashes aren’t over yet.

  16. I’ve noticed that people tend to stand around and look at danger instead of running away and getting out of the kill zone. Fire in a building? I’m safe as long as I’m out of the building, maybe across the street. Small explosion or vehicle fire? I’m fine, there won’t be a secondary explosion. Pileup on an icy road? Drivers will see the pileup and stop, there won’t be more collisions.

    I don’t think this is the fault of common sense. I think situations like this are inherently counter-intuitive. Human curiosity and shock paralysis also work against us. We should teach people that they should move much further away than they think.

    [This video comes to mind about this topic](https://youtu.be/JzdnUZReoLM), but this was actually worse. They didn’t even leave the building. Also, all the USCSB videos are very interesting analyses of catastrophic failure scenarios — also WorkSafeBC, like [in this video](https://youtu.be/L4-G08myaz4).

    He kept himself clear for the most part, held the phone horizontal, and got most of the action. This video is entertaining and invaluable for police/insurance reasons.

  19. Why is everyone driving at speeds like they can see anything?

  20. This doesn’t happen in Canada. Not because we’re better drivers, because we know this type of shit shouldn’t be driven in.

  21. As a Canadian, I have some strong advice:

    1. In low visibility conditions get the fuck off the highway if you’ve had an accident.
    2. Don’t drive any faster than it takes to come to a complete stop by the time you can see something. In that fog, that’s about 20km/h, or 15miles/h for you Americans.
    3. If the road isn’t dry, halve the speed limit.
    4. Hazard lights can improve oncoming people’s visibility.
    5. Avoid getting out of your car. Especially just to meander around on a highway where people can’t see.
    6. Someone moving ahead to warn oncoming traffic before more people barrel into this shitshow could make it stop, but you gotta mind what I wrote above.

  22. There is a reason why they send out the Snow Squall Warning alerts to all the cell phones in the area. That way if you are driving and run into the start of the snow you should know to slow down then before you lose visibility.

    But of course people turn off the emergency alerts because “it’s annoying” and then still think they are good drivers in any snow/winter conditions.

  23. So you get out of the car, now you’re out in the cold with your car in a ditch. What’s next? I would have no idea what to do. I’d just want to walk to a neighborhood and get an Uber home. Let the authorities call me about my car later.

    Idiots. All of them. If you’re going more than what, 15-20 MPH you’re going way too fast.

  25. I’m local to this. The emergency alert happened 15 minutes after the squall. It was sunny and dry up until that came through. There aren’t any exits to get off in that area, there’s about 5 miles in between.

    Also, there was a 50 car pile up just last month. I think it was about 20 miles away on the same highway.

  27. “I can’t see very well in this snow… better drive fast as fuck, just in case.”
