The driver of the Durango clearly does not know how to drive.
This is a lesson in how not to merge onto the highway. Watch (via TeslaCam) as this Dodge Durango attempts to fly by a Tesla Model 3, but then the top-heavy Durango loses control and crashes into several other cars.

It seems not a day goes by without some new (or several) videos surfacing on YouTube (via TeslaCam) showing just how poorly some people actually drive. This is yet another example of what not to do when out on a public road.

In this instance, the driver of a Dodge Durango decided to try a high-speed pass of a Model 3. The driver makes the pass on the right (just barely as it seem the Durango misses the Tesla by mere inches), but then attempts to merge back into the lane and that's when it all goes wrong.

As the Durango merges back over to the left, the gap the vehicle is aiming for closes up and then a crash occurs. The Durango hits several other vehicles and careens about before slowing, but the damage was done.


You can find more crazy driving on Tesla cam. on the tube.

This is were the emergency braking system is useful.
It will have avoided the first collision with the Renegade.

I am always amazed that overtaking from the right inside is allowed in the US.

Canada as well.

The REASON is because we have so many bone-headed drivers that don't understand they can't just dawdle along in ANY lane they please. They are supposed to stay in the furthest lane to the right as they are slower than (all) the others on the road.

They assume because they go 100kph (speed limit), they are entitled to which ever lane they please (ie lane 1 on a 4 lane highway for example) instead of moving over as they are supposed to.

They are the ones that cause accidents because everyone else has to pass on the right to get around them.
