Impatient VW Beetle Driver Goes Down Under

Assuming that you are in the right state of mind, if you see a truck with an oversize load trailer in front of you on the freeway or highway, what would your first course of action be? Keep a safe distance and if you must overtake, choose the time and place very wisely, correct?

For safety’s sake, we hope that all of you agree with the above statement. If you do not, then you can see one of the many undesirable outcomes in the dashboard-camera footage from a vehicle that captured a new Volkswagen Beetle in a hurry on an Australian highway.

The driver of the German hatch seemingly attempted to pass the pickup / SUV at the same time that the large truck in front was changing lanes as the road narrowed to a single lane and dipped into the ditch.

It could have ended much, much worse…
