Frozen Snow Falls From Truck's Roof Onto Car's Windshield
Don’t you just love dash cam videos? They are the gift from the gods of technology, letting us capture things we could never explain to people who weren’t with us in the car at the time of happening!
Ever since they came out, the dash cam’s initial purpose is to insure you in case of traffic accidents or when some unlucky person decides to blame you for running them over. People have had their minds taken off the guilt of ruining someone's life or idea of a life with the footage their camera captured.
The majority of videos we get captured by these awesome devices let us see what it looks like when someone gets served instant justice, cold and hard! Whether it is a rowdy pedestrian or a careless driver, we get to see that there is justice in the world and it will catch up on you, sooner or later.
A bad driver is something that no road can possibly be saved from. Now, there are incredibly many cars in the world, and they all travel on the same roads. If you drive smart, you can quickly get to work, go on a trip to anywhere in the world or just go shopping for a few weeks ahead. But at the same time not all drivers follow the rules of the road making the lives of the first group simply unbearable. And the worst part of it all is that you just have to learn to live with this, because whatever you do, whatever the authorities do, nothing will be done in the end.
Snow and ice falling from trucks is a consistent issue for drivers and trucking companies in Canada. With temperatures dropping below freezing, it is a very good idea to clean up the roof of your vehicle after a heavy snowfall, to reduce the risk of it freezing solid and then falling onto oncoming cars, like it happened in this video.
A couple driving near Moncton, New Brunswick, on November 30 approached a truck merging onto the highway just as a big chunk of frozen snow flew off of the truck, smashing the windshield on the passenger side. Authorities warned of the dangers of not cleaning the rooftops of vehicles, because the snow that freezes might form into ice and fall onto incoming traffic and cause incidents, just like it is the case in this video. As the ice falls off truck's rooftop, it lands directly onto the windshield of the incoming vehicle, causing it to smash!
Kevin McGraw said his wife, sitting in the passenger seat, was covered in shards of glass. He told Storyful that he pulled over to the right-hand side of the road and watched in the rear view mirror as the transport truck seemed to be pulling in behind him, but, he said, the truck then went around him and drove off down the highway.
The whole thing is like a scene from the Final Destination Franchise! Everything happens in a split second, you have to prevent yourself from blinking in case you miss the massive chunk of ice chipping off the block on the roof and smashing in the right-hand side of the windshield!
