2nd accident I got into and it was a deer. All young drivers idc if u are 18 or 17 or 16 but you're not invincible out there on the roads. Don't ever think driving is easy cuz it's seriously not. Driving is a lot of paying attention and life and death split second moments u have to be aware of. Be cautious of your surroundings and shit. Again idc if u know or not if u do great don't complain to me when I see u in a ditch or u fucked up your car cuz of you of u being dumbass drivers that don't know how to drive. Your vehicle is not a fucking TOY!! Not a god damn toy!. A lot of teens think it is. The choice is yours of how u wanna survive on the roads. Either use your brain in situations or go ahead and total your car. #teenagers#carcrashes#accidents#deers#teendriving#education
Please join me on Monday, April 2nd at 11AM PST on Expressing Motherhood’s Facebook Page. I will be talking with LA mom @dye2tri about distracted driving. Jeri is a road safety advocate despite her own heartache of losing her son Conor in 2010 to a distracted driver.
Conor was running cross country with his team when this happened.
Car crashes are the #1 cause of death to our young and this global epidemic receives far too much apathy. Jeri started a non-profit called @inhonorofconor that supports change that will save lives on the road. This movement needs light and you moms are the right audience. Jeri is a dynamic woman. Please stop by. She is funny and fascinating. Plus, I’ll throw statistics at you and remind you to never take photos while driving or on SnapChat, etc.
During the running of 1990's #Budweiser 250 Busch Grand National (what is today the #NASCAR Nationwide Series), #MichaelWaltrip's #Pontiac#GrandPrix rode up toward the outside wall in turn two. Unfortunately for him, the gate there hadn't been secured correctly, and his car rammed into the butt end of the concrete wall at well over 100 mph. And when that happened, the car shattered--every weld that could break seemed to have broken, all the body panels seemed to have flown off the car, and the floor of the car seemed to disintegrate. And despite all of that, Waltrip survived virtually unharmed.
Though it appeared that Waltrip's accident was a fluke, it happened again a dozen years later. While practicing for the August Busch Grand National in 2002, #Harmon slid up the track just as Waltrip had. And when he got there, he found that, once again, the gate hadn't been properly secured. He, too, hit the retaining wall and shattered his car. Then, one-upping Waltrip, Harmon's ride was hit by #JohnnySauter's car for extra destruction. Somehow, Harmon literally walked away from the crash.
These two nearly identical wrecks are important as a reminder that sometimes NASCAR doesn't learn from its mistakes. Or that it doesn't know how to close Bristol's gate. . . #carracing#unforgettable#carcrashes#racing#tracks#bristol#racing season #trivia#facts
