This is astonishing. Some people are so stupid. This happened in St. Paul, MN a few days ago. Check it out and tell me what you think!

A 4-Wheeler Almost Hit Me!

While I was waiting for pedestrians to get across the sidewalk a car drove around me to make the right hand turn in front of me and almost caused a collision.

Yes, I signed up for youtube. I might as well start going viral

Wow! That's just freakin' stupid! Some people just don't get it. If you're in the hospital, or dead..... Then you're REALLY going to be late then! And how much time did they gain by doing that?!?! They got stuck at the next light! Brilliant!

I think a lot of truck drivers don't understand that some people's time is much more valuable than ours. Obviously, you were holding him up.

I haven't been driving very long at all, and sadly things like this don't surprise me at all. Some people really are clueless. I'm glad this is an "almost." Right turn from the left lane in front of a big truck could have been bad. Stay safe.

Yeah, the middle lane was only allowed to go straight. I held him up because I obeyed the law and waited for the pedestrians to cross. Heh

That's crazy. The only real thing you can do is just shake your head. Glad things were not worse

That's as good as the one I saw a couple days ago. I was heading south on a 2 lane State hwy in a 35 mph chip & seal construction zone. Everyone was doing about 40 coming into the area and slowing to 35 mph. Out of the blue, a lady in a SUV passed and cut in front of me (I leave plenty of room in chip & seal zones....and yes, I had a rock chip my windshield, even with the space :-P ). She started to pass the guy that was now in front of her, but he swung into the left (northbound) lane due to the construction worker near the road. She threw on her brakes and tried ducking around on the right side of him....I don't think she even saw the worker on the road! For the rest of the 7 miles, she was forced to drive 35 mph as we were now following a pilot car. She kept riding the guy's tail that was in front of her and hitting her brakes. Just as we were to get out of the zone, she turned off into a car repair business....not at a hospital nor a doctor's office....a car repair place. All that stupid driving for nothing. IDLaura

She was having a repair emergency! Sheesh. She needed her oil changed, right now. Get out of her way. Too bad they couldn't re-wire her brain and put an anti-stupid V-chip in there while she waited. Maybe her high blood pressure and looming heart attack will slow her down before she hurts someone else.
