A very short clip that says so much, there's really only one thing to add: be very, very careful out there. You never know who you're driving next to... Follow the jump to see the vid.

      I once pulled onto a one way street, behind a semi being towed. I about shat my pants because I thought i had turned the wrong way for a moment. Then i realized how stupid I was.

      Stop posting here, idiot.

      With the way Autoblog titled it.
      I think it's possible that AB knew it was being towed.

      "VIDEO: Truck driver does 70 MPH, in reverse, kind of..."

      And that when they refer to the fact that you never know who you are driving next to. They may be talking about the person shooting the video.

      Oh I know! the person in the car was in reverse!! ha ha ha!!!
        • 6 Years Ago
        Maybe she was in a Benz?
        Having two reverse gears helps out.
        Can't an S600 get to 90mph in R2?

      Anyone who saw this video and could not tell that the people video taping this were being sarcastic is a dumbass.
      • 6 Years Ago
      hmm...did no one catch the suppressed laughter in the video? Or perhaps a little sarcasm? I'm 90% sure that this video was a joke to try and fool people.

      There's a youtube video of a woman showing the rainbow her sprinker makes. She was convinced that it was a government conspiracy to pollute our water. Must have been the same lady.

      This is one of those articles you wish you could hadn't sent out, but once it's out, it cannot be unremembered.

      Ummm...

      That tractor is probably being TOWED, morons! (the people making the video)

      There is no way in God's EARTH that that truck can travel more than 70mph in reverse gear. Reverse gear is much too short (equivalent to first or second gear ratio) to go anywhere NEAR that speed.

      However, trucks are often TOWED in reverse, with the front wheels down and locked, since the front wheels are not geared or connected to the drivetrain.

      Who's dumber, the wench taking the video or AB for posting it?
      • 6 Years Ago
      Wow... Apprently they've never seen semi's towed backward behind another semi... Look at the shadows, numb-skull.

        "BTW, i voted for bush, and i bet my IQ's higher than yours."

        I seriously doubt your IQ is higher than anyone's. I guess it is people like you to thank for the mess we are in now.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Screw IQ, it doesn't describe anything about someones intelligence. How successful you are, however, is a very good indicator of intelligence and ingenuity.

        I'm in the top 10% of successful, and I'll let you guess who I voted for last time around.

        P.S. - This video is stupid.

        No McLoven you have the people in congress to thank for the situation we are in now. The rest of you are idiots for not realizing that. Enough said for this forum, next topic please.
