    I have applied my brakes gently and keep my set of doubles in a straight path to slow down just enough to not hit Large elk crossing my path many times on Hwy6 through spanish fork canyon, Utah all last winter, But never slammed the brakes so hard as to leave skid marks like this guy. You NEVER, EVER swerve to avoid, Elk, Deer, etc. This Guy oviously fell asleep for a second, woke up and slammed the brakes hard. Look what time it happened. He wash probabily heading back from a meet and turn and got sleepy. Pull over next time and take your lunch break with a pillow for a power nap.
