    Default Educational tv

    I don't know if you ever watch idiots in cars? I have found it to be very informative.

    This little gem at 12:30 is one of the best, only outstripped by the genius in the digger stealing the 2 motorcycles and the okie in the tram door getting hit by the road sign.

    I just wonder how he's going to explain to his insurance why his injuries don't match up with the damage on his bike?

    There's no storyline to this. It's literally just dashcam footage spliced together for the duration of the video.

    14:00 3 people on a bike doing a wheelie... apparently only a single brain cell shared between the 3 of them.

    I have a theory on this.

    I think because children as so overprotected when they are small they do not learn incrementally the small dangers and do not develop the ability to work out for themselves how small dangers escalate into accidents.

    I made a video of the small waterfall left over after the rains and while I was following the stream I remembered how we used to do that as kids , and had lots of small accidents which learned me to respect the power of even a small stream of water. Which helps when you start playing on big rivers.

    Same for these videos.

    I tend to watch Idiots in cars a lot.

    It see it as driver training.

    The common cause I see is speeding and intersections.

    This made me more aware and reaffirmed my father's teaching that you should slow down a little bit before an intersection to give you a bit more time to process.

    Yes, I have also changed my driving after watching this.

    It's interesting how often those accidents could have been avoided if the outjie with the dashcam had just slowed down when he saw someone acting weird.

    My dad always said "Everyone on the road is an idiot except for me and you, and I'm not really sure about you". He is was right. When I drive I always expect the other guy to do the most stupid unpredictable thing and plan for it. And either I'm getting more grumpy by the moment or people's driving is getting worse by the moment.

    This episode has got a lot going on.

    Does the incident at 4:00 mean that Mercedes beats Landrover?

    Mr Cool with his beer on the monocycle was also pretty funny.

    And today's episode has one of the funniest parts I've ever seen on it. That woman at the petrol pump is classic. I guess we can be glad the outjie in the other car came along or she would still have been driving in circles.

    What she is doing is beyond belief. Can a human being actually be that stupid? But strangely I'm more irritated that she keeps getting out to check. Why doesn't she look at the arrow on the dash?

    And the 2 Dutch guys are equally hilarious. I never anticipated hearing the word 'bokdrol' on this channel

    This episode is quite the collection of idiocy.

    The road rage incident with the sambok and rifle is quite something. I would also have dropped and run when the gun came out.
