Terrible reaction time.
Something tells me this person isn’t the sharpest tool in the shed.
She was looking kind of dumb with her finger and her thumb
In the shape of an "L" on her forehead
Well. The world starts coming and it don’t start coming. Flipped the car over twice and I hit the ground rolling.
Didn't make sense not to live for fun
Your brain gets smart but your car gets ruined
So much to do, so much to see…So what’s wrong with calling Triple A?
You'll never know if you dont roll
You'll never shine if you don't get towed
Why am I signing this thread right here. Now all star smash mouth is playing dang it Shrek get outta my swamp
So now get out your seat and roll your car.
You’ll never shine if you are slow
With the bottle embedded in her forehead.
Haha I had the same reaction in my head. Gotta love when people use lyrics and aren’t aware.
Sharp as a tennis ball
"It's on autopilot, it's fine because the computer will know"
Maybe somebody once told him
Sharpest tool in the drawer.
''Huh, the wheel isn't turning back and I'm going into a ditch, maybe it'll kick back soon...''
Like holyshit how long did it take to react
He’s in the backseat!
He shoulda walked away
He will be Lucky to walk away
what is the name of song
(I Just) Died in your Arms - Cutting Crew…. perfect lyrics for this! Assuming they died in each other’s arms after they should have walked away, of course.
I just died in my car, tonight
Hey we're both drunk, what should we do?
I have an idea.
What was the logic behind the bottle in the steering wheel?
The car won’t activate the lane keep assist unless it detects the weight of your hand on the wheel.
For more details : Peugeot doesn't have an autopilot, this is a basic anti lane departure system that only works within specific conditions (speed, angle of the car compared to the road, road visibility, etc)
Though you wouldn't think it's possible, it makes them even more stupid knowing that.
NEVER underestimate the stupidity of people. It's like Newton's third law of physics, every action has a reaction. Well in this case, every smart person has at least one other completely braindead moron.
"The world would be a better place if we just took the safety stickers off of everything and let Darwin figure it out."
- George Carlin, paraphrased
I have it nearly memorized because it's a favorite quote.
"I'm *not* saying we should kill the stupid people. What I *am* saying is we should stop putting warning labels on everything and let the problem sort itself out."
good thing stupid people don't read warning labels.
if they did, the tide pod thing would've never taken off.
Wow, I now have a new favorite quote
That's why it's a joke, George Carlin was a comedian. Often serious, but not always.
Besides it's not always even ones own intelligence. I've seen floor cleaner between juice and gatorade at a store. That would be one person's idiocy possibly killing someone else.
You can usually figure shit out pretty easily even if you don't know about it prior. Don't need a warning to not drink bleach unless you're a complete fucking moron.
“*at least* one other” is an important detail of the law, I’m glad you got it.
Whenever you think something is idiot 0roof, nature invents a better idiot.
I feel like this is a "Simpsons did it" situation.
My Honda has this too and it definitely is not designed for this at all.
Basically it just vibrates my steering wheel if I'm drifting much like a rumble strip does. It does try to keep the car in the lane but doesn't work great at night and doesn't work on curvy roads.
Didn't like this about my rental Prius. On a road I took frequently, the main road with the lane markings curved away to the left. The country lane that I wanted went straight ahead. Every time I went straight onto that lane, the Prius started "warning" me that I was drifting onto what it thought was the shoulder.
Oh yeah mine does that too.
What really irks me about mine is the collision warning. It's been helpful at times (like in unpredictable traffic on the highway where people stop suddenly) but it's realllllly bad on curvy back roads because everytime a car comes on the opposite side of the road on a curve, my car thinks I'm gonna crash.
I don’t know which Prius you have but on my 2020 it lets me turn off the lane departure completely. And I can’t set the sensitivity for the collision warning where it doesn’t freak out going around corners. Aggravated the shit out of me at first. I live way out in the country where we have super narrow roads with trees right at the edge of the lane. It would constantly be warning of the collision and telling me to hit the brakes, slowing down with the cruise control on and telling me that I was drifting out of the lane if I had to merge.
But now that I have it dialed in pretty well it is honestly my favorite car to drive. Previously I had a 2009 Lexus ES330 (350?), 2003 Lexus IS300 and a 1995 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. Maybe I am just getting older or maybe it’s because I messed up my back in the Army, but I love the way the Prius rides. And the Limited model is nicer than my Lexus was inside.
It's kind of a boomer mentality but I like my 2017 Civic because it doesn't have any of that. It's just a good car with heated seats and fuel efficiency and a little bit of speed and stuff but it doesn't try to steer for me or warn me about shit, it just lets me drive.
Usually the lane assist warning doesn't activate if you use turn signals, like you're supposed to do in the situation you're describing.
My Prius is older, but it beeps at me while I'm backing up. Dude, I know I'm backing up by the way everything in front of me is getting further away instead of closer, STFU. Now I tune it out so reflexively I am completely incapable of hearing it beep.
My wife has that car and it drives me crazy. If I had to drive it often I would rip out that speaker
Also, if you look a the dash, the lane-keep turns off as it switched to the off ramp. As it should since it‘s not designed to handle non highway driving.
I think it's because of the weight of the water bottle. It makes the car think that someone is turning it, making it disable the LKA
It's probably the best outcome, he didn't react to the it going into a right turning lane only when it started to go offroad. If it just kept going straight probably woulda hit a curb or obstacle.
I didn't need this to know everything I needed to know about the guy behind the camera.
Interesting info regardless, but doesn't make me think of that "driver" any differently.
Look, I get that autopilot and fill self driving are cool and all, but honestly, my Google home can't even figure out if I want to turn off the lights or play a song called "lights out" half the time.
I have zero faith that AI can successfully pilot a 2 ton death machine on wheels by itself.
Just like with cruise control, someone competent should still be behind the wheel for when things happen. This is just advanced cruise control. Let's not get ahead of ourselves okay?
I rented a car that had a system like this. It was weird feeling the car steer against you. It also had automatic headlight brights and the ability to maintain distance when using cruise control which were great features.
I kinda wanna try that. But I also drive fine myself so I don't want auto drive thing. Took me years to get used to ABS on dirt roads
That sounds great. My car just beeps if the car in front of me is going too slow for my current speed. It generally works well, but it will occasionally go off needlessly when someone in front of me is slowing and making a left turn. Oh well, I'd rather have the system work when it doesn't need to than the other way around.
I had a Skoda on loan that had this system. On country roads it pulling me towards the ditch because it wanted me to be more centred or away from the centre line. Did not feel that safe! On highways the system worked quite nicely but had a preference for pushing you towards exits, exactly like this video shows…
\> and the ability to maintain distance when using cruise control which were great features.
I fucking love this feature
I thought those turned off cruise control if they sensed nobody was touching the wheel for too long.
Yep, that's what the water bottle is for. Tricks the car that someone is holding the wheel
Same thing can be done on the Toyota
Why does the car think humans have water bottle hands?
My guess is that the steering wheel has a simple pressure sensor that just detects when it's being gripped. In this case the way the bottle is fitted in a way that puts pressure and does the trick
All it is looking for is a little bit of resistance above what the steering wheel normally 'weighs'. People have used oranges or rolls of duct tape.
I've got this car. It does lane keeping and adaptive cruise control which is the same as a base spec Tesla.
On roads like this it will keep a determined distance from the vehicle in front and it will steer around corners to keep you in the lane.
It's not fool proof but it works almost flawless for me and I do a lot of miles on roads like this.
We have a similar system on our Subaru. It's great as long as the road doesn't get really curvy. On long roads I barely have to touch any of the controls.
Sometimes it will find lines that aren't there (construction remnants etc), but it mostly does really well
Subaru's tech is pretty damn nifty in their newer models.
Really don't get why the sound system is so crappy then.
Fully agree. There's even an OEM upgrade kit that is sold by someone (Rockford Fosgate?) that I've been eyeing.
it's not the same as Tesla. The Peugeot system doesn't recognize unmarked edges and you'll crash in minutes doing this on country roads. When they launched the new 508 we had a few of them crash because Peugeot executives thought they had proper lane guidance.
Fair enough. The fundamental technology is the same though.
My limited experience driving Tesla on roads like in the video and my Peugeot have been the same
Sorry, it’s not fundamentally the same. The Tesla autopilot, isn’t perfect, but you can literally drive 300 miles, with automated lane changes with zero intervention.
That said, one needs to be vigilant, Tesla can’t detect stationary objects on the road well.
The Tesla I've driven couldn't do automated lane changes. It was base spec.
No the base spec tesla also has auto pilot on highways, so in this specific instance the tesla would've worked probably.
did the anti lane departure use the signal to change lanes also?
I don't think it does, at least not in this. What's flashing is the light to tell the driver to correct it's course
I just died in my car toniiiiight
It must have been blue powerade
Maybe cuz my friend is braindeaaaaad
I, I just dieed in my car t’night
It musta been some Gatorade
I shoulda walked instead
Shoulda walked instead!
It musta been something u said
It must have been something you said
I just died in my car tonight
Dammit. I should have read the comments before I wrote this exact thing. Same amount of "i" and everything. Take my upvote.
"Who's driving?" "The blue Gatorade"
close to the actual dialog:
"y'all know who's driving?"
"this water bottle is driving"
"this is how you drive"
The gatorade is probably more qualified than the person filming.
throw the blue gatorade in jail, open and shut case.
No one blame that water bottle. It held that water above expectations.
And it even drove a car
That's more than any water bottle has done for me.
Stupid water bottles being filled with delicious clean water with minerals added for flavor keeping me alive and never trying to kill me except for that one time it was filled with lies and moonshine.
This is why they say you shouldn't drink drive! Drinks just can't drive properly.
You'd think that with all the PSAs people might finally listen to reason
Why do people feel the need to show the world how stupid they are? If I had ever done something this stupid with this result one of the first things I would do is delete the video proof! Did they brag about to the wrecker too? Hey mom, guess what I did? SMDH
They need it for their GoFundMe to recover the cost of the car, since the insurance won’t pay
gUYS QUIRKY new TICKTOCK challenge!!1 😮😮99% will fail! 💯dangerous ⚠ 😎
*queue dozens of teens killing themselves*
Worse than tidepods
Facebook is full of drivers livestreaming their stupidity. Their brains are just wired wrong.
They even say " this is how you're supposed to drive"
the bottle totally knew what it was doing
Homemade Tesla? Where can I find one?
In a ditch or embedded in a concrete wall probably.
Maybe somewhere in Russia
Just light any car on fire and you'll get the same experience
Translation: Do you know who's driving? This bottle of water is. This how you drive (said with a smug voice tone)
was the botlespeaking
This guy is Romanian and felt the need to show off, he's a perfect example of when keeping it real goes wrong
Drinking and driving is not solved by letting a drink drive.
Whoaaaa, I just died in your [car](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6dOwHzCHfgA) tonight
They were lucky to have walked away.
They're going to need a Cutting Crew to get out of that.
This is how much i trusted her...
Did the driver just fuck off to the backseat for a TikTok?
Yup, idiot thought he had a self driving car and thought he'd test out the rear airbags.
I'm floored. And so are they
Cruise control is not auto pilot. Auto pilot is also not auto pilot. Never ends well.
I just shit in my pants tonight
I don't like the blue flavor
That bottle made a cameo at the end lol
“i just died in your arms toniiight”
My man took 2-3 business days to react
You can only see this shit in Romania
This here people is what we call in Ireland "a cunt".
i just died in your car tonight
Thats why you shouldnt let a drink drive.
I've had nightmares that I'm in an unmanned vehicle and I have to scramble to get behind the wheel. No thank you.
They just died in each other’s arms that night
Were they trying to have a near-life experience?
Man your insurance company is going to love this!
I think all self driving cars should crash into a ditch if the person has left the driver seat
A**hole Gatorade didn’t even use their turn signal. (Gives finger)
Look ma, no hands
The moment you regret not getting a Tesla.
Don't feel bad at all
Their reaction time can be measured with a calendar.
They deserved what they got.
“I just died in your car tonight 🎼”
🎶🎵"I just died in your car tonight..."🎵🎶
That song was fitting
Should’ve been to listening to “Jesus take the wheel”
Car: pay attention to the road and be ready to take over
Person: haha i can trick the safety system!
Getting serious Fight Club vibes here.
"We just had a near life experience"
I too have tried to navigate using clicking noises from my mouth.
Something tells me when you’re driving you should be in the driver seat. Imagine destroying your car and possibly your life for some dumb video that’s already been done 100 times
OMG Romanian, i know that language. Translation: Do you know who's driving? This bottle of water. This is how you should drive
Water bottle, take the wheel!
Should've bought a Tesla
When you order a Tesla on wish
A highly satisfying video.
This is *exactly* why we can't have nice things
This doesn’t actually work. I tried it on mine for shits and giggles and the water bottle is not nearly enough to actually make the wheel move and think you’re there. It was immediately obvious that it wasn’t going to work, I certainly didn’t have time to think “oh, this is cool, I should climb into the back seat and film it” let alone have time to actually do it.
They should’ve stayed in the drivers seat so if shit like this happens they could’ve stopped it
"I'm just dying in my car tonight🎵"
Insurance will be happy that they got foolproof evidence of a fool prooving he's evidently too stupid to be allowed to drive.
Not to mention some random person they could have killed , yeesh
What were they even trying to do
I too have had this dream.
What's impressively stupid about this is that they would have needed to get the car moving, engage the lane departure system, then crawl into the backseat after wedging the water bottle in the steering wheel.
Bravo, people. Bravo.
This reminds me of the scene in bobs burgers when he’s teaching Tina how to drive in an empty parking lot and she still managed to hit the only parked car.
🎶I just died in my car tonight🎶
Discount self driving car
I just died in this car tonight
It musta been some stupid trick
I just died in this car tonight
Why's the sun visor down, it's night time
I… I just died in your car tonight
So they watched it go off the road before trying to correct it? Lmao
Someone got actual video of my recurring nightmare. The one where my subconscious is processing the fact that I have no control over my own life. Driving the car, trying to reach/step on the brakes with both feet with all my might, only to look up and see I’m in the back seat.
This is what dad warned would happen if you put the roof light on.
He just died in his car tonight🎶
Well deserved stupidity
That'll be an interesting call to the insurer.
I literally have a reoccurring nightmare of trying to drive a car from the backseat....this person is incomprehensible to me
If you kinda dissociate for a second it does look like the car is "taking" that exit.
Dudes a couple fries short of happy meal.
**Elon**: So let's make cars that drive themselves.
**DOT**: I don't know....
**Elon**: We'll have a safety feature that in order for it to work, the driver has to be alert and have one hand on the wheel.
**DOT**: Hmm... okay, that sounds good but is it fool proof?
**Elon**: ABSOLUTELY! I'm the smartest man alive. Nobody can outwit my creation!
Tyler Durden: "LET GO!"
Literally deserved what was coming.
This is the thing about self driving if you keep expecting that it’s going to correct by the time you grab the wheel it can be too late. This is clearly a bad example and these guys were being incredibly irresponsible but being ready to take control will never be as good as being in control. It’s gotta be all or nothing for me.
This isn't even close to self driving though, it's just a lane hold system. It's such a basic system it got confused by an exit and disengaged, leading to this accident.
This is just intended to stop you leaving your lane if you get distracted or fall asleep and nothing more. It's not even a level 2 system, you literally cannot ever hand over control to the computer, it's only there for emergencies.
federal prison for this guy please and thank you. How do people that are that fucking stupid afford a car like that.....
Meanwhile, I'm driving a 2006 minivan that just had its catalytic converter stolen... ugh, I can't catch a break...
One of those new self-crashing cars Elon is talking about.
I see the issue. They took a Tesla and fitted a Peugeot steering wheel and interior to it for some reason. Doing this clearly threw the whole car off balance.
That's basically what I'd expect from a self-driving Peugeot
Elon is shit with the working conditions in their Factorys in Shanghai
This shit right here is why we shouldn’t entertain war or death by virus at the expense of others.
There’s plenty of stupid to go around y’all.
As Russian says @ they should get Darwin prize
I'm glad they crashed. They never deserved a car or legs anyways.
Russian or Polish?
