Pretty sure the dumbass recording the whole thing should have stopped behind those cars instead of switching lanes. If you do this here in the US and cameras catch you, the judge could send you to prison and not that bus driver.
>>15459646 And get destroyed too? Retard. It's not illegal to change lanes, and you're certainly not going to get charged for NOT being in a crash. The bus driver was negligent. As a bus you can see over the top of kia hatchbacks. There is no excuse for using the driver ahead as a buffer for stupidity. It's not their job to wake up the bus driver so they can slow down.
>>15459421 Guys, this is the last straw. We NEED to introduce common sense truck legislation before more people die in another mass plowing. It's time to institute a ban on high horsepower, automatic transmission vehicles.
When the driver hit those people the truck slowed down. If he had a manual transmission, he wouldn't have had a chance to downshift and the engine would have stalled. But because it was an automatic it downshifted and kept going.
The DAF truck used in this attack is powered by a Cummins 5.9L 6 cylinder 24Valve Turbocharged engine. When Rudolf Diesel designed the first Diesel engine, it was meant to power farm equipment like tractors and bulldozers. He never could have foreseen things like turbo charging and 6 cylinders and 6 liter capacity. These modern Diesels have more power than most aircraft engines. These engines have immense amounts of torque that allowed the truck to keep plowing through people. Diesel engines belong on construction equipment not on our roads. The Diesel engine and automatic transmission basically turned the truck into an unstoppable bulldozer
Had it not been for a person's skull getting sucked in and blocking the Holset turbocharger, the truck and its absolute madman of a driver would have never been stopped.
Don't get me wrong guys I'm a car guy just like everyone here, but I think we need some common sense laws to prevent things like this from happening.
The French government has already vowed to eradicate the streets of Paris from Diesel engines by 2020, but they need to be stopped now.
Will someone make a petition? We cannot continue to live in fear that another oil burning black smoke spewing bulldozer is going to fall in the wrong hands.
Something similar happened in Germany recently. Some asshole truck driver went full speed into a hold up at the beginning of a roadworks no less. No fucking brakes, nothing. As if the roadworks weren't a dead giveaway to brake, there was a massive hold up clearly visible especially to someone high up like that fucking faggot trucker.
Anyway he mashed into a small hatchback and pushed it into the truck ahead of it, killing an entire family.
>>15461608 New cars are designed to crumple like that. Increased impulse decreases how jarring the impact is because the collision takes place over a longer period of time. Its like catching a raw egg by holding your hand still and letting the egg hit your hand (egg probably is going to break), or moving your hand with the egg as you catch it.
>>15461659 No cunt, new cars are NOT designed to crumple in the passenger cell, that's simply a cheaply made heap of shit failing to do its job and protect the people in it. The boot area should have crumpled, absorbing impact, while the passenger cell stayed relatively intact. I guarantee you right now a Volvo S60 would not be anywhere NEAR that bad.
>>15461608 >Also, why the fuck did that late model cars passenger cell crumple so easily? What a complete heap of shit. Go park your car in front of a bus moving at 50mph and see if it does any better. Cars aren't designed to be rear ended by busses at high speed you total dipshit
>>15456997 Bus drivers in Korea have a tendency of assuming they're gods of the road. They will bully anything and everything. The best shit to see is bus and cab drivers fighting over an accident. This was probably another case of the bus driver either A: being distracted by occupants doing karaoke as many tour buses, especially privately owned ones, come with TVs and karaoke gear to keep people entertained for extended trips. Or B: he was assuming the traffic ahead of him would see him coming and move. Really not that uncommon at all.
