    damn number 14 was crazy.
    lucky that pedestrian was already running else he would have been squished.

    I think number 8 was on a Jackie Chan movie. "Who Am I" I believe.

    • Nicnac

      correct… plenty of amazing driving in that scene

    #5: One of my co-workers was the safety coordinator for the local railroad yard and has told me numerous stories of people trying this trick and failing. Please don't make conductors into murderers… it really ruins their day.

    #11: I guess sometimes it does pay to ride a Honda.

    #12 = Only in Croatia! And not a fuck was given that day.

    #14 – Having trouble getting those pesky windshield wipers going? Not sure how to get them started again once they've stopped working? Here at "A Bus'll Fix It", we'll drive a bus into whatever problem you're having. It's a guaranteed fix for all known mechanical issues. Just let us know what part of the car isn't working, we'll fix it and "take care" of the rest.

    Just look at one of our problem solvers in action in #14. It's a beautiful thing. Got those wipers working the instant the bus hit it.

      Thumbs up from anyone who read my comment and went to go see if the windshield wipers were going before the bus hit it? 😛

    I'm pretty sure the person driving in #9 just wanted to get to the McDonald's there before they stopped serving breakfast.
