One of the most basic things one should learn about driving is this: DO NOT brake too close in front of a large truck.

The footage below shows a Russian driver aboard a BMW X5 who makes not one mistake, but three in the course of a few seconds. The BMW X5 driver was constantly brake-checking the truck and the inevitable happened: the sporty SUV got smashed three time from the back.

No one was hurt in the incident and interesting enough the truck had a dash came installed which captured the entire, somewhat funny, scene.

Always remember, large vehicles don’t have the same braking distances as passenger cars.

    Wow. I would love a translation of this video. Do you think he wanted to stop completely?

    You rush tards need to learn how to edit a video. We really don’t need the first five minutes. Also, it’s a little blame on both ends. If you had some regulations in your county (inspections) you might have some brakes that work. You could easily need to stop in an emergency and need more runway than a 747. Good luck in world domination. Third world country.
