    Most of us who are currently or have been professional drivers.
    Know that it not only takes knowing how to operate your vehicle,it also requires a little common sense.

    This video shows that a brake check after every pre-trip, is a good practice before heading out to the open road.

    But, come to America and we will give you enough money to buy that outrageously expensive bucket of bolts.

    This is something you don't want to try,should you fall & the chainsaw keeps running.
    Well you figure out the end result of this here Saskatchewan Snowmobile.

    I used to bring chocks with me on my route,however what purpose would they serve to chock trailer landing legs?
    I'm sure the application in this photo is a joke,unless this driver is a complete idiot.

    Theres a lot of you tube crash videos of foreign drivers,however very few of North American drivers.
    North America includes Canada,so does this mean the North American drivers drive safer then foreigners?
    Or perhaps the foreigners have more dash cams.

    Yes I know there are a whole lot of stupid you tubes like that one Stimpy.
    You could watch them all day & still not see them all.
    Just goes to show what folks will do for their moment of fame,or stupidity on you tube.

    Theres a series of really stupid video shorts on MTV,called Ridiculousness.
    They've been on for several years,& there seems no end to the ones that air.

    maybe it's psychosomatic, (or whatever), but whenever i see someone falling down, and in pain, i feel thier pain as well... i get these pains in my back, and my right leg (the leg that goes numb on me). this is why i cannot watch, America's Funniest Home Video's..too many people getting hurt....

    must be some sort of reflex action on my part..?????

    weird, but it's all too real for me.

    I'm 6 feet & weigh around 300 so that is one reason I'm vertically challenged.

    I have fallen a number of times in my life & if I feel little or no pain I find some humor in it.
    Although to few times I've really been hurt,I pray that Jesus will help me out.
    Some times its in an instant & I'm good to go,however there have been a few times it took a Doctors visit.
    With a few days to recover.
    Over the years I have become a lot more careful not to do any more face plants.
    I still trust that Jesus will continue to help me,but I believe the old saying as well.
    An once of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

    As for watching some folks falling,it depends if it looks fake.
    Of course I feel bad for the ones who are not faking it.
    I do have to admit I find humor in the stupid stuff.
