Not everyone is born a driver, but the majority of the population just suck it up and learn to drive whether the hard or the easy way. But in reality, a driver’s license doesn’t protect you from road rage, dangerous situations, or reckless behaviors that happen way too often.

So this list from Bored Panda serves as a crucial reminder to keep our eyes on the road for any bizarre, unexpected, and plain dumb sightings. Like this crazy person who drives cross-legged or this driver who holds a plate with a fork in what seems to be a fancy rendezvous dinner while driving.

This is not safe, this is not funny, but unfortunately it happens and we'd better learn what to expect and how to react in such unfortunate cases from the images rather than real-life circumstances. More people who shouldn't be allowed on the road can be found in our previous post right here.

The national survey known as the 2021 Travelers Risk Index on distracted driving showed some illuminating findings on safety on the roads in the US. Luckily, one in four drivers thinks that roads are safer today than they were before the pandemic. However, alarmingly, a growing number of respondents reported using their mobile devices in unsafe ways while driving, including:

  • Texting or emailing (26%, up from 19% pre-pandemic).
  • Checking social media (20%, up from 13% pre-pandemic).
  • Taking videos and pictures (19%, up from 10% pre-pandemic).
  • Shopping online (17%, up from 8% pre-pandemic).

In that sense, the findings are twofold. Even though people feel safer on the roads, reality shows quite the contrary. According to the National Safety Council, 2020 motor vehicle deaths were up 8% from 2019. It makes it the highest percentage increase in 13 years.

Chris Hayes, the Second Vice President of Workers Compensation and Transportation, Risk Control, at Travelers commented on the current state of road safety: “Not only did distracted driving increase, data from our telematics product IntelliDrive shows that speeding also became more prevalent. As travel restrictions are lifted around the country, it’s critical to slow down and stay focused on the road by eliminating distractions.”

Talk to him seriously when he's not driving. If he continues, tell him you'll find other transit. Let him throw his fit. Ride with friends, take the bus. If those aren't options and your dad still won't listen, show this photo to the adults at your school until someone steps in to help you. What he's doing seriously endangers you and others. Adults who care about you would want to know.

Why would they take the train tracks and leave the trestle standing?

M O'Connell
Community Member
3 months ago

In many extremely rural places road traffic is permitted to drive across rail trestles. After the line was abandoned, the trestle remained. Also, in extremely rural places, those trestles would be extremely expensive to remove, and being made of wood can simply be left to decay naturally. I can think of several examples in Wisconsin leftover from 19th Century lumber and mining operations.
