If you’re going to go ham riding shotgun with a driver hellbent on doing donuts, you’d better have your seatbelt on.
When you’re young, riding around with friends, and have plenty of power under the hood in your RWD vehicle, shenanigans are bound to happen. Earlier today (Nov. 30,2017) thanks to VTECTuning off of Facebook, I came across a prime example of why wearing your seatbelt is rule #1 on driver and passenger safety. Check out the video for yourself below.
The one recording seems to have stumbled upon this ritualistic rite of passage for any young muscle car driver, a Chevrolet Camaro randomly doing donuts in the middle of an intersection. Unbeknownst to him, there’s a passenger in the Camaro as well. Not only does he not have his seatbelt on, but his door is unlocked and dare I say, cracked open as well.
Thanks to the centrifugal forces of a body stuck in a compartment doing donuts, presumably the passenger was pinned to the door. Either his hand or an article of clothing got caught in the door handle, opening the door. The passenger falls out rather violently, thrown a couple of feet to the curb. Fast forward to him writhing in pain and you’re forced to rewind the video to take a closer look at what happened. Part of his upper leg and foot got walloped by the rear bumper and his foot ran over.
The driver in the Camaro, not wanting to deal with police, an ambulance, and points on his record, hoists his friend up like a wounded soldier and carries him into his car. Hilariously enough, one of his friends runs towards the guy recording and in more words or less, asks him to stop recording.
The icing on the cake is when the recorder asks his Uncle’s opinion on the matter.
You gotta be G-D damn stupid!
We think so too, Uncle Larry.
