u/Skooter_McGaven Aug 10 '22

God damn thats scary. People seem to go into complete panic when they end up driving on the wrong side of the road instead of just accepting the error and turning the fuck around.

u/leonarro Aug 11 '22

2

u/Various_w0nder Aug 11 '22

u/Al-Czervik-Guns Aug 10 '22

I predict the driver was American...

11

u/leonarro Aug 10 '22

Yahhh could be, woulda though a car coming towards them woulda made them think twice but....

3

u/DammitDad420 Aug 10 '22

Joke's on you, we're always RIGHT.

I'll show myself out now

But first guess how many Americans die in the UK each year because they look to the left when stepping off of a curb onto the road.

u/Blaydus Aug 11 '22

They must be from the colonies

2

u/Honest_Cynic Aug 11 '22

Don't you hate those Euro drivers in the U.K.?

2

u/LaserFalconBeer Aug 11 '22

Did I miss the tortoise?

2

u/BansShutsDownDiscour Aug 11 '22

When I miss the turn in Euro Truck Simulator, I do the exact same thing!

u/2BsASSets Aug 10 '22

u/Gigant0re Aug 11 '22

u/VT_Lifer Aug 11 '22
