    Agreed.

    Having my brother recently take his road test I am very surprised at how easy it is to get a liscense in this country. 3 turns and a parallel park and that was the test.

    Anyway that accident was probably the result of the driver thinking he was all cool and not checking his blind spot over his shoulder and not seeing the car that was there. The aluminum wing probably got in his way. Its just that its a civic with a body kit and wing that wrecks and it was probably the result of the driver thinking he was invincible and not checking.

    That looks kind a fake...they did not look like they were going that fast. If it was a dirt road I could see the rear kicking out like that on a frnt drv car.

    looks like he over-reacted and then over-corrected.... been there, done that, faired better though.. I don't see the problem people are having with these wreck posts... I think that we should take them as a reminder of how easily things can go wrong and the consequences involved... They used morbid pictures in my driver's ed class in HIGH SCHOOL for this... I think that we are all mature enough to take these as educational videos and pics instead of shunning them and forgetting anything ever happened.... hopefully we can learn from OTHERS experiences and not end up on one of these posts ourselves.

    rant over..

    Actually, the car looks fine after wiping out.

    My theory is, guys like that aren't smert enough to know that 2.75in lowering springs require you to cut your bumpstops, and it basically kills the little suspension travel Hondas have already. The same type of "guy" I mention, probably dosen't know that stiff rear bars make your car tend towards oversteer.

    So anyway. My take on it is, he basically rides on his bumpstops (like one of my friends' lowered RSX), so his suspension can't work properly. Turns, overcorrects, suspension can't work, so the tires get held in the same position and don't camber properly and PALAKAA! Ultra Dori Doriftu Time.

    it was funny for a split second, but then you realize the guy was probably dozing off behind the wheel. It can happen to anybody.

    I used to be a newsreporter and covered highway fatalities all the time. The number one cause of death was dozing off and then crossing the center line.

    This guy was lucky, nobody was coming from the other lane.

    This is ironic, a very similar thing happened to me before, also in a four-cylinder Honda Accord coupe, except I made a quick lane change (because the car in front of me hit its brakes), and then I started swerving. I tried to correct the resulting fishtailing, and being my first year of driving and also unexperienced, I hit the brakes, making the weight of the car shift forward (like some people have mentioned), then my car did a 180 and went over the median (almost exactly like in the video), except not as bad.

    Yeah, deffinetly used to much braking at the wrong time which got his back end out, you can just watch and see how he looses control everytime he hits the brakes. Deffinetly sucks, accidents are not fun.
