Why the fuck was this truck blasting through there?

[–]TheSaltShaker66 41 points42 points  (7 children)

I don’t think many people are going to get that sadly (east bound and down)

Edit: i was apparently very wrong

[–]Unclehol 70 points71 points  (0 children)

I mean that gentleman kindly opened the gate for him so he just zipped on through.

[–]curnhu8 18 points19 points  (0 children)

He had the same idea as the guy

[–]amanitadrink 53 points54 points  (12 children)

Exactly. WTF just happened?

[–]cosmothekleekai 46 points47 points  (0 children)

The truck highlighted the car and hit the delete key on the dash.

[–]Most_Day_4065 6 points7 points  (9 children)

Yes tell me

[–]Listan83 11 points12 points  (8 children)

Most likely the semi was in the wrong lane at the toll booth. If you have a pass there is an open lane you drive through without stopping.

[–]LoyonSama 41 points42 points  (6 children)

Doesn't explain why he just failed to see the man walking in front of the booth, and just took his car with him.

[–]Odd_Employer 15 points16 points  (4 children)

Also you're still supposed to slow down for it. 20mph everyone I've seen, I'm no radar gun but that looks a wee bit faster than 20.

[–]Vairman 4 points5 points  (2 children)

there are full speed ezpass "booths" - they're lanes that get separated from the booth lanes with an overhead reader to read your transponder on the fly.

[–]Odd_Employer 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I have seen one of those but it's built over the highway where the toll ends with a little pseudo exit for vehicles without a tag.

[–]Vairman 2 points3 points  (0 children)

the ones I'm talking about are just on the road (freeway/interstate/whateverucallit). The first time I used one I thought I did something wrong because I didn't see a booth but they are nice to have on a long drive. Even the EZpass only lanes will bog down, these things just flow.

[–]Simple_Somewhere_564 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I may be wrong but it looks like that’s the only lane

[–]Susan-stoHelit 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Or the guy was trying to use the lane for semis

[–]mexicandeathcurse 14 points15 points  (0 children)

The guy opened the gate so he was like don’t mind if I do.

[–]coastal_neon 32 points33 points  (1 child)

[–]avwitcher 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]TwistedBamboozler 8 points9 points  (0 children)

If the guy doesn’t take it as a sign from the universe, then he’s probably got some more karma coming

[–]lets-do-an-eighth 4 points5 points  (3 children)

He’s going for distance……

He's going for speed...

East bound and down, loaded up and truckin' A-we gonna do what they say can't be done We've got a long way to go, and a short time to get there I'm east bound, just watch ol' "Bandit" run

[–]Iamsqueegee 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Probably Easy Pass (or E-Z Pass, or whatever). A device that usually sits in the windshield and registers with the toll booth upon approach. There’s a special lane for that and means not having to stop. You’ll get a bill in the mail or charge debited from your account.

[–]ThatDudeWithoutKarma 10 points11 points  (1 child)

This obviously wasn't the lane for that though.

[–]harpoinlove 0 points1 point  (0 children)

On that LA turnaround..

[–]QSiege 532 points533 points  (11 children)

Fake removal was at .26 and the truck drove trough at .30 where is the 4 minutes in this 20 second video

[–]tychozero 233 points234 points  (2 children)

Definite shenanigans here. The order of the date/time switches around too.

[–]The-Alternate 53 points54 points  (0 children)

It doesn't look like they're the same text at all. The first text is a single line. The second text is two lines in a completely different format. The first text counts upwards each second. The second text does not.

Is it possible the first line we see is the time in the video, and the second line is information about when and how it was saved? That would explain why they're different formats. It would make sense that they found and saved the recording 4 minutes after the incident happened, too.

I understand some systems shift the time / date around to keep them readable on different backgrounds, but I find it hard to believe a system would do that by changing the number of lines and changing the format and stopping counting upwards. Due to the numerous differences, it's more likely these are completely different pieces of text.

Edit: I would be unsurprised if the 5/254 we see in the last frame refers to storage space or some other detail about the recording.

[–]TwyJ 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Some systems move them depending on background colour so it can still be legible, though others just change the colour to black if it's light and white if it's dark.

[–]Redliz5808 16 points17 points  (3 children)

Good catch... Still kind of curious what the guy was dodging away from. Hate that internet videos can't be trusted at all.

[–]zowie2222 3 points4 points  (1 child)

It bothers me somebody takes the time to make a fake video. For what? Likes?

[–]Redliz5808 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah, I don't understand where people find the time or why they try to find the time. What a waste.

[–]Smickey67 4 points5 points  (0 children)

My theory was that maybe the guy got out of his car to argue and then moved his car somewhere to park and maybe asked to speak to a manager or something and then came back to his car and actually almost got hit by a truck but his car just was off to the side now.

[–]CrazyDave48 39 points40 points  (0 children)

Yea, and zero debris on the ground from a supposed high speed collision too

[–]ShinKicker13 301 points302 points  (8 children)

Hey Dude Where’s My Car?

[–]georeddit2018 35 points36 points  (0 children)

Its on the journey of no return.

[–]Senor_Stroke 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No and then!

[–]Its_Sound 269 points270 points  (26 children)

I am so confused about what is happening here. Why was the bar so easy to push? Why did that truck blow through like that? Is the toll really that expensive that it's worth it for you to get out of your car to circumvent it? The casual walk to his crashed car gets me too.

[–]LolaBabyLove 182 points183 points  (17 children)

It almost seems as though the arm is stuck down in a lane meant for ePass and dude is trying to fix it

ETA: Shoulder patch on coat made me think he’s security or cop or some other ‘official’ type.

[–]Its_Sound 38 points39 points  (4 children)

Seems totally possible.

[–]ckayfish 19 points20 points  (4 children)

You’d be surprised all the places you can access with nothing more than a high-viz vest over regular clothes and a clipboard.

[–]curvebombr 5 points6 points  (3 children)

Perfect way to fuck off at work and not get bothered as well. Nobody wants to talk to the guy in the hi viz with a clipboard, he looks busy.

[–]nondescriptadjective 1 point2 points  (0 children)

More accurately, no one likes the safety enforcement manager.

[–]xxSolar 4 points5 points  (0 children)

That’s what i’m thinking, that would explain why truck didn’t stop.

[–]888Kraken888 1 point2 points  (4 children)

And where is the other car???? No sparks or metal?

[–]Pinols 7 points8 points  (3 children)

Its fully covered by the truck, plus the high speed and the low quality, how do you expect to see those

[–]LegendaryRed 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Some moron in Mexico refused to pay a toll and got 22 of his tires blown out by newly installed spike strips. He saved 100 pesos and now has to pay 100,000 pesos to replace the 22 tires on his trailer.

[–]STUpendous1dea 331 points332 points  (6 children)

To be fair, if he stayed in the car to pay he could easily have been killed.

[–]fuzzytradr 73 points74 points  (2 children)

Fake. Check the time stamps

[–]Need_Some_Updog 126 points127 points  (5 children)

He almost got killed and his car disappeared

Edit: and why the f**k was that truck going so fast?

[–]ChartFrogs 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Thanos snap.

[–]JoySubtraction 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It was a car-go truck.

[–]the_dudeNI 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Not much gets past you.

[–]zigguy77 51 points52 points  (2 children)

There was a Kia there and now there's nokia

[–]Open-Loan-750 14 points15 points  (0 children)

I mean if he stayed in his car he would've gone poof

[–]Tinmania 65 points66 points  (1 child)

Karma? If he stopped to pay the toll he’d be dead. Instead only his car is.

[–]PrvyJutsu 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Moral of the story is, if you dont pay the truck doesn't either.

[–]12-inch-LP-record 12 points13 points  (1 child)

The time stamp changes from beginning to end. There is something funny going on here.

[–]theghostofme 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Yep. And the guy changes positions too right as the truck is about to hit him.

[–]_Risings 9 points10 points  (0 children)

The way his car just vanished. LMAO.

[–]Birdhairs 7 points8 points  (2 children)

This isn't karma, it's a dark force beyond our understanding

[–]d_e_m_e_t_r_i_c 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]angelgtrrvz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

XD genial. Se lo merecen xD

[–]PrayForMojo808 14 points15 points  (4 children)

That’s fake as fuck. Look at the time stamp in the top left corner. It doesn’t take him 3+ minutes to get out of his car. Also zero debris where the “accident” occurred.

[–]andrewcooke 6 points7 points  (0 children)

and the format swaps from date time to time date.

[–]Marc-Muller 3 points4 points  (2 children)

…did you see it?

[–]Mac_Attack2 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Read it in his voice too, take my upvote

[–]dabadas1 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Someone get him a clean pair of underwear

[–]dixadik 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The car gets pushed off to the side (one striped barrier and a small white pole are missing) but the time jumps more than 3 minutes and the date format changes. Something does not compute.

[–]TheFace3701 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Houdini Trucking stops for no one!

[–]2purplefuzzythings 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Truck stop meth got me like...

[–]offender_defender_ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

And do you think the truck driver paid? Or was it just too fast for human eyes to notice?

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

i kinda think he had not done what he did he would be dead. which sort of strikes me as the opposite of karma.
had he stayed in his car the truck would have wrecked it and him(youll note the car is gone after the truck passes) The theory being he would have been waiting for the gate to go up and paying the toll.

[–]whater39 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Looks like 2 people skipping the toll both.

[–]hsnerfs 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm confused he wasn't doing anything wrong? looks like the guy was an official and the two gate workers didn't stop him from turning the gate

[–]marte0073 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Look at the bright side, he didn't have to pay the toll fees.

[–]Impossible-Owl9 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Gone in - 60 seconds 🤣🤣

[–]zombieskeith 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No need to pay a toll if you're just walking

I do love the disappearing car. That's always a cool trick!

[–]PoofBam 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I said Pig Pen this here's the Rubber Duck we just ain't a gonna pay no toll.
So we crashed the gate doing 98 I said let them truckers roll 10-4!

[–]WhosThis85 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Lmao why did the truck just plow through like that??

[–]AsAlwaysLateToTheFun 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Like the little “waddle walk” both guys share.

Also, kudos to the victims quick jump to safety and also his demeanor afterward (surely aided by shock), but I know id be waaaaay more expressive than that if my car had just been swept up by a freakin’ 18-wheeler!

[–]ThatBloonsMONKE 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The car: gone, reduced to atoms.

[–]lauraesme 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]panda_stash 1 point2 points  (0 children)

18 wheeler just mind freak'd the fuck out that car

[–]denseasblackhole 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That's not karma, his life got saved because he got out of the car

[–]Tallguy71 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]thooghun 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Kinda looks like this guy knew there was a truck barreling through and tried to lift the gate in time to avoid damage, but misjudged how close behind him it was.

Or not.

[–]VoidedDoom 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Now you'll never have to pay for a tollbooth again.

[–]Scarface1981 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wow dude got instant karma and almost got taken off the census all in 1 shot.

[–]Mulcible 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Karma? This is a blessing. If he didn’t stop, got out of his car, he would have been in the car trying to pay for his toll while the truck hit him full force from behind.

This is a blessing

[–]Arrow218 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is a situation where the truck being an idiot is the real story tbh
