Gotta Watch: Diners, drive-throughs and dash cams

    I've seen the diner one before, if it's the one I'm thinking of.
    Is this the dude who gets plowed into the counter, and just looks for his cap and puts it back on his head?
    If it's *that* one, he's amazingly cool and collected, and lucky to be alive.
    He still sits in the same booth too, btw!

    CNN – please post news instead of this. Many more of these "Gotta Watch" sensationalist videos pandering to the most moronic among us is going to drive me away from your website. Pun intended.

    A perfect example of why old people should not be able to drive. Or at the very least, have mandatory DL exams, for reaction times. I know it sounds mean but they are a real danger to society.

    What's the matter with you guys? This was never about the money, this was about us against the system. That system that kills the human spirit. We stand for something. We are here to show those guys that are inching their way on the freeways in their metal coffins that the human sprit is still alive.

    It would be nice to view these videos without a freak 30 second waste of time in advertisements in each video. Go kick rocks.

    I was watching the news and they say that the police is not at fault. The car was turning left when the police car hit it. It's clear that the driver was not trying to pull over but making a left turn. have a close look on the left of the street to notice the dotted line of the adjacent street.

      If a cop is driving 100mph...chances are you aren't even going to hear the siren until he hits you, and half the time they don't even bother to use it anyway.
      I had a cop come close to tee boning me a few weeks ago.

    This has been a considerable problem in Buffalo, NY. Since September 20 cars have plowed through various buildings in the area. I think that it happens more than people think it does. I think it is something that needs to be addressed.
