Motorhome yields to stunt driver -- let's hear it for "two wheel" driving

We don't need to provide a lot of commentary on this one, aside from the usual, "Never try this at home." Well, OK, one more thought: This guy didn't need ramps to get into the gut-wrenching position.

Out-of-control trailer sway wipes out RV

Idaho's Interstate 86 is the setting for this "ruin your whole trip" video. The driver towing this travel trailer attempts to speed past a semi-truck (who provided the video capture), begins to sway, and fails to correct the sway. Witness the results. 




One wonders why the semi-driver appears to continue on his way. Some suggest there's no reason to "try and fix stupid," but there's no telling if anyone in the tow vehicle was hurt, nor (heaven forbid) if they might have been carrying passengers in the trailer.

Dash cam catches violent motorhome crash

This short video was taken with a motorist's dash cam. Shortly after a motorhome passes in the left lane, something goes horribly wrong and the RV quickly veers of the road and then violently rolls onto its side.

We suspect the RV blew a front tire and the driver did not know how to react. Although the passengers in the RV survived with only bumps and bruises, they could very easily have lost their lives. If you do not know what to do if your front tire should suddenly fail, take a few minutes to watch this video from Michelin, which shows how to react. Believe us: there is a right way and a wrong way, and the wrong way can get you killed.
