Guy in the truck just fucks off lol
"Fuck this. Fuck these people, fuck that car, I'm GOING TO WORK."
Looked more like, "I ain't going back to prison over this shit" kinda maneuver
Lol he skedaddled the fuck out of there
Someone has to pay the tax some this lot can get some free money!
Maybe didn't want to get rear-ended like he just did to driver in front.
"Can't get rear ended if I'm 30 miles away"
I mean I would've too. i don't know what those people are going to do. I'm terrified of getting "caught" in some protest in my car. I've seen videos of protestors trying to break into the cars and pull people out. Fuck that, I'm not sticking around.
Oh yeah I totally get why he left. It just made me chuckle how he's like, "NOPE!!"
Yeah seen videos of car windows being smashed too with children inside
I don't respect anyone who pulls that shit. I automatically oppose whatever cause these people support when they block the streets and damage people's cards.
That is what kills me. I get part of a protest is to draw attention to your cause, but drawing negative attention is counter productive.
What do they think is going to happen?
"Well i wasnt going to support your cause but, after you made me late for work and endangered my life and property by forcing me to stop on a busy highway i have reconsidered."
Yea it just makes them just look like a public annoyance; people won’t see your cause if you’re just causing trouble, they’ll simply see a nuisance.
In this case they risked their and the drivers lives and caused thousands of dollars worth of damage, fuckin idiots.
It’s not on Reddit because people support their opinions lol
Some states passed a law that if you are caught in a protest and feel likr ur life is in danger u can use your vehicles as a weapon
Agreed. As long as you report it when you are in a safe place, it should be fine. These people are literally insane and usually carry weapons. Too many people have been maimed and killed by these people (RIP David Dorn).
That’s why I would just plow through a crowd cus ain’t no telling what they’re gunna try and do to me once I’m stopped! Either get out the way or get run over is what I say
Edit: your downvote just lets me know you’re one of the human garbage people that block roadways and think it’s justifiably a peaceful protest! I’m here to tell you, don’t become grill meat! All about a peaceful protest but keep your ass out of the road!
*THIS IS A ROAD AND-A IMMA GONNA USE IT \[Wario laughter\]*
I see zero problems with this.
Just don’t stop
Either that or they had too much to drink and didn’t want to discuss with the authorities
So legally would a driver be at fault for hitting someone on a active roadway? It’s not a crosswalk and they are there illegally.
Idk but in my country they'd probably get fined but the two cars that rear ended car 1 and car 2 would still be on the hook for not respecting safety braking distances in the rain and therefore being unable to do an emergency stop.
If in Missouri and they make an effort to stop then no. Ie if you try to stop and protestors surround your car and damage it you are legally given the go ahead to drive through without consequence regardless of injury or death.
Yes, because protesting in the middle of any roadway is always a good idea……
And on wet pavement no less.
Oh boy that F-150 booked it. Doesn’t look like they’ll get very far with that front end, surprised it was still running.
Yeh no license or insurance i bet ya
He spilled his Coors and had to get a change of clothes
What are windshields, Alex?
It’s built Ford Tough.
Two beautiful murder machines, American angels in the sky, grown men cry...
(Idk, it just reminded me of it)
People fucking suck
What are they even protesting for
Their neighborhood getting flooded when, it's not really the government's fault at full, it's also the general public since they throw garbage into the sewage and other stuff made to prevent flooding, causing it to clog and we'll... Flood
Looking at their clothing choices, definitely not for fashion police.
it is wet and cloudy. People cant see the protestors behind other vehicles. no one expects the car in front to suddenly stop.
You should have enough space between you and the car infront of you that if they intently stopped, you wouldn't hit them
And suddenly, they all dispersed.
"Nothing to do with me..."
most of them are still there though? they just got out of the road. You can see them in the median
No matter what you're protesting if you block a road or something similar you are a piece of shit and can cause accidents. This is a perfect example.
They should all be arrested.
Guy steps out of car- “Well, ya happy now?”
I agree with their point of view now
Yeah, they convinced me by blocking the same road that emergency vehicles use and by causing a series of car accidents. These are clearly rational individuals whose views should be considered.
Every one of those assholes should be held liable and have to pay for the damages or jail time
No and then.
Whoever I catch first is paying for their groups sins like a modern day Poncho'd jesus
Kids are told from young age to not play in the street because could get run over - clearly, these idiots weren't listening - maybe she's learned the lesson now??
Really? My mom told me to go play in traffic quite a bit growing up.
Probably cuz you kept killing all her houseplants.
In this situation would all the protesters be responsible or just the one guy he slammed on the brakes for?
Guess who doesn't have a driver's license and insurance? Maybe outstanding warrants. Lol
Sorry she's OK.
Yeah, she got back up.
What were they even blocking the road for?
An attempt of a protesr which. Not really, i would call it call of distress, Of their neighborhood getting flooded during rainy days
You should be able to sue every single person blocking that road.
Run em over. Fuck em. Darwin Award winners here
If you do that to me I’ll -try- to stop but if I can’t in time: my car weighs 1.5 tons and you don’t You want to keep that in mind.
Law of gross tonnage.
My work truck weighs 40-50Tons and is spectacularly flammable.
Hey at least they were being safe and wearing masks!
Look at all the twats then disappear after causing the crashes
Cowards. "I believe strongly in my cause.... right up until I have to experience the negative consequences of my actions."
Not gonna lie, was hoping they all got taken out
They could have got way more points than that!
They got their butts out the road quick after that accident.
The dumbass standing in the road should have to pay for the damage to all those cars, plus any medical bills if someone was injured. Oh and pay the city for having to clean up the road. If it’s multiple people, make em all split the bill.
She will probably claim she is injured and try to make a bodily injury claim.
Any judge with a brain will see she was standing in traffic on a wet road and laugh at any attempt to justify her actions.
Well, yeah, assuming the insurance company doesn’t just pay her off to get rid of her and actually takes it to court. Most PI claims never see the inside of a courtroom, even if a lawsuit gets filed.
But if you try to get insurance to pay for an ambulance you have to prove to them that it was an emergency and you couldn’t drive yourself to the hospital. My grandmother fell and broke her arm but because we didn’t know if anything else was broken we called an ambulance. They claimed a broken arm wasn’t a good enough reason to call an ambulance.
It’s a bit different with auto claims. Besides, never underestimate the willingness of a slimy ambulance chasing injury attorney. They may not get much, but they’ll likely get something if the insurance company doesn’t feel the need to fight it. Go read in the insurance sub and you’ll see what shitty stuff people can get payouts on.
I actually think ambulance companies themselves are opportunistic scumbags. A potentially life-saving drive to the hospital should be free. I respect the EMS workers but not the ambulance companies themselves.
I agree! If it’s someone calling because they have a headache or a cold and hope an ambulance ride bumps them to the front of the queue in the ER, they should be charged. If it’s a legit emergency, should be provided. It makes me sick when I hear of stories of people refusing transport when they need it because they can’t afford it.
I was hoping for more carnage but okay.
Asking “Are you ok?” to the person who caused the wreck playing chicken in the road with several tons of vehicles. Pure stupidity. She would be a good footnote to Darwin’s research.
All of those protesters should be charged with causing those accidents and sued.
I don’t see any signs or anything. Can you link to what they were protesting?
Reminds me of one of my favorite lines:
"I'm against picketing, but I don't know how to show it." :)
Easily my favourite comedian.
Whatever these assholes were protesting I guess they think it’s worth injuries to innocent people and property damage to other people’s vehicles. It isn’t. Fuck them.
Dumb protestors aside, it looks like the 2 vehicles didn't leave enough room to safely slow down to a stop.
I swear most people don't understand what tailgating actually is. I don't understand physics too well but if something weighing 3,500 lbs is going 60 mph it's going to take a shit ton of force to stop it. Let's say bambi runs into the road, you'd still want to have enough distance between you and the car in front of you so you can stop. The two cars that just plow into the first car are still at fault here.
Yeah, if the car in front of you had time to stop, you had time to react to their tail lights and stop. Either that or you were following too closely. Insurance will always put the blame on the car that rear ends another car.
Obviously failed the 2 second rule.
She actually went out of her way to get in front of that car.
The Cr-v barely bumped the car in front of it and then gets absolutely smashed by that truck.
Does anyone else see red and blue lights turn on in the 2nd car after it gets hit? Is that an unmarked police car?
OMG, I feel bad for the first person. they hit a person and must be FREAKING. Even if it's not their fault.
The most dangerous thing to do and dumbest way to die
Look at these fucking morons
But it is their right!
Demonstration for FUCKING WHAT? Thanks folks...
Speed up. All together now. What do we do?
Esta bien ? Debería haber salido con al menos una pierna rota la gilipollas.
Will the insurance company pay for my car if i run over an idiot at mach speed on the highway?
I expected a meat crayon
not to condone this, people who do this can fuck right off, but if you're gonna do this, at least put up a sign or something to warn people. doesn't make you less of an asshole but makes it'd be safer
Not respecting safety distances is what is stupid.
Well these nut sucks just bought them new cars.
The protesters walking away after causing a chain crash: Our work here is done.
Are you ok
I think I am
WELL YOU DONT DESERVE TO BE !
Just drive through them
What were they protesting? Anyone in here know Spanish?
Also, why is the new trend to protest in the street or in downtown shopping areas? When I was growing up, I was always under the impression you are supposed to protest at the capitol steps or at a government building. Not block civilians from driving, looting stores, and burning peoples apartments.
The other people wised up by moving away. Homely she got some sense knocked into her.
I've been involved with friends of differing protests in my life.
I have never and would never block traffic. It's COMPLETELY irresponsible.
I'm all for protesting as long as buildings aren't burned etc etc etc.
Que chinguen a su madre los vecinos de paseo residencial.
I hope those drivers sue them. And hard.
LOL that truck took off. He was wanted or driving dirty and had to get out of there.
There have also been cases where protesters who block the roads start assaulting people in cars. I'd get the hell out of dodge if I thought they were going to try and brain me over their dumbass protest.
Make speed bumps out of those idiots
Play stupid games win stupid prizes
Does anyone know where this happened or what they were protesting?
who cares if she is ok? How about the people she was blocking.
Those creatures should be executed.
As stupid as these people are, the two drivers that rear ended the first and second véhicule are still at fault here for not respecting safety braking distances in the rain and being unable to do an emergency stop.
Remember the good ol days when roads were for cars?
And is there any after action report on if the protesters got charged or are we going to be left with a big cliff hanger just like call of duty ghosts
When did this become a thing? Why would we decide to stand in the road and block traffic? Groups of people standing safely on the side of the road with signs is million times more effective then pissing people off in the middle of the road. Sad part is these people would’ve probably ripped the driver out of their car if they hit someone and told the driver it’s their fault. Get the fuck out the road.
Best part of the truck driving off is if the bumper on the ground has the license plate on it...
I fucking hated this!!! In El Salvador people blocked streets for the minimal of problems. Instead of marching to city hall or the assembly hall. It is such a tiny country everything is within an hour. Blocking me to get to school is not going to fix the broken pipe to your neighborhood! 🤦♂️🤦♂️🤦♂️🤦♂️
That’s one way to get them to move
Well that soon cleared them off of the road
I wanted to see the bowling pins gooo
That fn woman should be charged. F that
That lady is a sh\*t-ton of trouble.
Mexico don't play those rules of blocking traffic
I would have ask the people in the cars if they are ok. I don’t care for the dumb ass blocking the road
I’ll never understand protesting in a fucking road. Roads are made for cars. Not people.
Get the fuck out of the road! Your disagreement with public policy does not give you the right to restrict my movement in public spaces!
Every single one of them should be prosecuted for causing that accident.
Dirtbags. That's so freaking dangerous.
That’s why it’s legal to run over these clowns in Florida. So many people get damaged property and injured while trying to avoid stupid people standing in the middle of the road.
My sympathy is with the innocent people injured and their cars wrecked because stupid people think standing in the road is a good idea that everyone will praise them for.
Protestors: We gon' have some fun! 🤠
Run over no problem
Why would you stand on a highway, what are they doing?
It's a new fad. They're mad about something so they want to make everyone else mad too.
"If I piss everyone else and cause car accidents, this will make them sympathetic to my cause! Genius!"
I’d get out of that car throwing fucking hands, or better yet I just wouldn’t have stopped
Extra stupid to block a highway in wet conditions…
Fucking dumb asses
Thank god I live in Florida where we're allowed to mow those fuckers down now when they pull that shit lol
I knew I liked Florida for a reason.
Hey, man. You can get to 70% by either raising the number of people getting vaccinated, or lowering the population of unvaccinated. I'm okay with either one.
"Hi. My name is Strawberry Wilson. I am a cisgender woman, and I have PTSD from a road rage incident which occurred during my heroic activism." - pretty much half of those fuckers
I absolutely hate protestors that protest on the street. Blocking traffic is not the way to do things. Rioting I don’t mind. But let cars pass.
Why are they even in the road? There are no protest signs or anything. Someone have a link?
Each person should be charged
Tis but a roadbumb
I wonder why nobody protest anymore after the crash...
