    Car Pileup Video in Wisconsin

    If you haven't seen this yet, you've got to, because this is borderline hilarious (hope nobody got hurt). Lets just say that just when you think more cars can't continue to pile up, that's when they all start flooding in like a river (the last 1/3 of the video is the best). I at first started to count every time a car got plowed into, but then I quickly lost count. You'd think the bigger the pileup, the easier you could see it coming.... apparently that statement is false.

    You'd think living in Wisconsin they'd know to slow the **** down. I was amazed this last Sunday driving from Ames to Ankeny I saw like 8 cars in the ditch, people are stupid.

    I can't believe the people getting out of their vehicles and walking around with cars crashing and spinning by them.

    That was the part that had me freaked out the most. Cars sliding and crashing and they are just standing there. Awful lot of cars driving too fast considering the weather conditions. Once that Walmart semi stopped it seemed to give enough of a warning to other drivers to slow down.

    To be fair, it was probably caused by FIB's. ****ing Illinois Bastards, for those who dont know the Wisconsin lingo.

    Two things:

    Why the F would you get out of your car and stand on a highway where a pile up is happening!!!!

    And second, I cannot believe how fast some people are going as they approach this scene.

    Re: Car Pileup Video in Wisconsin

    Why didn't someone run up the road and wave their arms or do something to slow everyone down?!

    Running against speeding traffic on an icy highway seems like a poor idea.

    I can't tell if you're serious, but I think riding out the pileup in my car would be a safer choice than getting out and running up the highway waving my arms at cars travelling too fast on an icy road.

    You aren't going to be running up the middle of the damn road! Those people are just standing there beside the pileup anyway, might as well make themselves useful.

    Re: Car Pileup Video in Wisconsin

    Holy **** that was insane. I cannot believe how fast some people were going when they came to the pileup. Also, how about the idiots standing in between the cars as yet another car comes slamming into the pile up. Wow.

    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    That's because you care about others. Selfish bas%#$@ like 3True just care about themselves and keeping themselves safe;-)

    Re: Car Pileup Video in Wisconsin

    It's not just getting out of their car that bothered me...it was the idiots who stood on the other side of the road where traffic was still flowing by at a nice clip.

    If there is enough cars behind me (crashed) I stay in my car. Otherwise I high tail it waaaaaaaaay out in that ditch past the fence line until the po po shows up. I find the car that went the furthest in the ditch and go about another 20 yds past that.
