Video of the Week: Check Twice Before Turning

It's the midpoint of the work week and you need a laugh. This week's video is a few years old but it's new to me, and hopefully to you.

End your workday by laughing at a hapless Jeep driver who got caught doing something we all do from time to time -- pulling out a little early. The end result? A mess all over the place.

The good news is that the Jeep didn't get hit. The bad news? Well just take a look and see for yourself.

Keep this in mind the next time you make a left turn, and double and triple-check before you pull out.

    Front-chute mixers are used for tight spots, where backing up might be an issue.

    What? No electronic “nanny” to avoid an accident like this?

    Reply to Mike-NB@ because we can't reply to replies:

    Isn't that part of the whole Jeep cachet? They can get away with being crude, rough and unsophisticated. Their flagship, the Wrangler sets the tone. Sacrifice on road competence for off-road competence.
