I don’t drive, so the question is mostly academic.
Among the road incidents in this video @ Jeffro’s post there is a repeated situation when a sudden obstacle appears in front of the driver (i.e. the car where the camera is). Usually it’s a huge truck that lost control and is spinning across the highway directly in the path of “our” car. What would you, as a driver, do?
In majority of these clips the driver instinctively turns left to move around the obstacle – but then he faces a chance to get into opposite-traffic lane and to encounter another car that is driving with highway speed. In several instances in the video that maneuver resulted in spectacular crash where “our” driver avoided one collision (with sudden obstacle) only to get into another. What do you think is correct course of action?
