Driving isn’t for everyone, as evidenced by this video clip from Poland. According to the description with the video, this is footage of a woman taking a driving test. The sad part is that the woman fails miserably, but the happy part is that this video exists for us to watch over and over again. Believe it or not, there is actually something to be learned from watching this outside of the giggles you will get. It is a very clear example of someone mistaking the gas pedal for the brakes and then panicking, which causes a lot more accidents than anyone is willing to admit. After all the research done of the Toyota Camry situation, it seems as though most of the “runaway” ‘Yodas were caused by bad drivers, not bad cars.
Back to the video! It appears that the Polish driving test involves a slow speed autocross-like course where the driver negotiates around cones and pylons to demonstrate an acceptable level of acumen at the tiller. All is going swimmingly for this woman until about 20 seconds into the clip. It is then that she repeatedly mashes the gas instead of the brakes and….well you really need to watch this clip.
Like I always say, “If you can’t be good, be spectacular!”
