Shortcuts: Oblivious Driver Launches Over Traffic Roundabout

September 14, 2018

This is a motorcyclist's helmet-cam footage from the A11 near Attleborough in Norfolk, England of a speeding van that's apparently unaware it's approaching a roundabout and launches over it at high speed. Or maybe the driver plays too much Mario Kart and was convinced this was a legitimate shortcut. Or -- OR -- the most likely situation: this is their audition tape for the inevitable British Dukes Of Hazzard remake, Dukes Of Attleborough.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to blue16, who agrees when in doubt, launch over it like a downed power line.

    That's not a helmet cam, it's pointing straight forward in relation to the vehicle at all times, and not looking left before driving into the roundabout. Any human in that situation would look at the spectacular jump, at least peak repeatedly while driving.

    Instant Karma for the way he pulled out in front of the biker with the helmet-cam?

    i suspect that 'yakety sax' was playing in the van.

    Ex-skater just couldn't resist a good ramp.

    Love how everyone just keeps going! one checks to see if Darwin took another one.
    If it was a pizza delivery vehicle then people would stop.

    I'm impressed, I always thought roundabouts were much safer than intersections because you can run a stoplight/sign, but you can't run a roundabout. Clearly I was wrong.

    You know what they say. When you build something idiot proof the universe sends you a better idiot.

  • JJtoob

    It was safe, only the idiot got hurt.

    The Duke of Hazzard

  • Being chased by the Earl of Coltrane, perhaps?

  • James Aames

    I was expecting the van to pause in mid air, then some commentary by Waylon Jennings.

  • ErstO

    Well, it’s a good thing that van missed that blue direction sign, he would have been in really big trouble if he took it out.

    What I really want is the audio from inside that van.
