Meanwhile in Romania: Four Kids in the Trunk of a Car

The story is, the back of the car was full of pigs so the kids had to go in the trunk. They seem 7-8 years old to me. He crossed a solid line on the motorway and made an illegal left turn and almost collided a truck going at speed just next to him!

To me it looks like the lorry hooted it's horn as the car filming the other car stopped dead in the road.

If the filming car had just carried on past the car turning off then the lorry could have safely followed it.

I couldn't find a word to confirm your "story", but the idiot filming the other idiot carrying the kids in the trunk was even a bigger idiot, as he stopped in the road to film it for a good laugh on the internet...he could have provoked a really bad accident..what a stupid ass.
I guess the distance the driver had to go was really short and the idiot thought it was OK...yes, as we all already know, there are stupid people everywhere.
What was the purpose of this post anyways???

Btw, you could honestly say that a child trailer for bikes is safer???

No idea why you thought the left turn was illegal - looked perfectly fine to me, it was even signposted a couple of hundred metres in advance.

You're presumably imparting some special meaning to the solid white line which may be true where you learnt to drive but is certainly not the case throughout the world.

And it's not a 'motorway', Looks like a perfectly normal single carriageway road to me.

As for the truck - presumably he'd seen the indicating car and was far enough behind to not need to slow down. Sure, he needed to take avoiding action for the car filming it, but was almost entirely unaffected by the car making a perfectly normal left turn in front of him.

And really, picking up random driving clips from the internet and reposting them here with your own bizarre re-interpretation of someone else's incorrect reading of the situation...

Why? Just why?

A few years ago they could have inofficially used this as an advert - referring to the generous size of the boot

Australian driver belts in beer rather than young boy
Australian police who pulled over a driver in the outback were astonished to find he had secured a load of beer with a seat belt but not a five year old boy.
