    Yep... Good video. Just today I pulled over and slept for 15 minutes when I felt my eyes get heavy. Felt like a champ afterward. I'd rather be 15 minutes late then what happened to this poor dude.
     
    Baack, future driver and Beechvtail Thank this.

    I do believe that clip should be shown in ALL driver education classes, no matter what type of class it is!

    One of the earliest things that was hammered into my addled ADD brain was to wear a seat belt no matter how far you are traveling

    I sure hope he does, that accident wouldn't have been nearly as bad had he had it on.

    He didn't break his neck, at the end of the video you can here him say ######, and according to the comments on you tube by like 50 people this isn't the whole video. Apparently he crawls out after, but I couldn't find the whole video.

    There were a few younger people that commented on the video on you tube who said they had seen the Clip in drivers ed except the school cut off the end where you can clearly hear him still alive, and told them the guys died lol

    I'll never understand why people don't wear their seat belts.

    But there are no laws about how long 4-wheelers are allowed to drive??? Because apparently they are immune to the effects of fatigue, NOT!!!
