A trucker set up a camera on his dashboard and captures a moment that proves how dangerous tailgating is!

We all know those people who like to ride on the bumper of your car. Tailgaters drive me nuts! And if you’re one of them, you need to stop now. Not only is it annoying but it is also very dangerous and an accident just waiting to happen. Watch below to see what the trucker caught on his dashcam.

From AWM:

The owner of the footage provided this description on the YouTube video: “The state troopers were extremely grateful for my dash cam video of an accident you are about to see. I was grossed out close to 80,000 lbs. I was fortunate I was able to stop my truck. The outcome could have been much worse. Thankfully, there was no serious injuries or fatalities. Please be careful out there people.”

He further added more information about the incident in the comments: “The accident actually occurred ahead of the pile up. Ahead of the pile up, a construction vehicle was making a left hand turn into the jobsite. The vehicle behind him slowed down for the construction vehicle to make his turn. The vehicle behind him, rear ended him. Those two vehicles were in the process of pulling off onto the shoulder. The pile up began as the third vehicle saw what had occurred ahead of him and slowed down to almost a complete stop, that’s when the pile up of the other vehicles began. This is what the driver who stopped claimed when the officers arrived. This is where we must engage our four ways to let the other vehicles know there is a problem ahead. That and paying attention to the vehicles in front of you.”

Slow down, pay attention and stop tailgating. Getting to your destination a few minutes earlier isn’t worth the accident that could destroy your vehicle and even worse, someone’s life.
