Two Cars Collide Cartoon

12 Sept 2021, Berkeley CALIFORNIA | Roll a fat cigar of brainpower for two mental midges who climbed out of their vehicles on busy Interstate 80 to argue about who slammed into whom. In short order both argle bargles got slammed into again, this time without the protection of a metal cage.

Situational Awareness:
It's A Thing.
The second crash occurred at 1:30AM when a hapless Mini Cooper driver swerved to avoid the Dodge Durango and Chevy Malibu wrecks, accidentally colliding with the men. A lesson we all should remember is that neither dead driver cares about that dispute anymore. Learn from the mistakes of others. Two men paid a steep price for their situational unawareness.

It was also not fair to the traumatized Mini Cooper motorist. Alcohol or drugs do not appear to be a factor--just ordinary lack of common sense. And THAT is our daily Darwin Award, something we see quite too much of. © 1994 - 2022
