Was he running from the cops? They seemed to get there pretty quick.


MachOneGaming

They sure got their quick but then decided meh those people got him, I gotta make sure I park the car in a good spot before getting out…


kobeahl

Yep. Ended being tested positive for cocaine and almost coma like alcohol.


EffectiveSad9918

Looks like it


SirBaconCheeseburger

Yes, he was actually running from the cops. Didn't stop to the police sign, tried to get away so the police went into pursuit. Later the driver was found drunk and high.


The_Sun_Princess_

Was the driver okay?


SirBaconCheeseburger

As far as i know, he was unharmed or had minor injuries...


GeneralSquirrel7132

This would make a great MedLife commercial 👍


Treblehawk

And the amount of time they spent parking the car gave a serious “don’t care you got what you deserved” attitude…


Joker-Smurf

More likely calling an ambulance and possibly the fire department to extract him from the car. Not a huge amount that they will be able to do at that point. He is stopped, possibly trapped in the car. Unless he is in imminent danger (car on fire, building about to collapse on top of him), it is better to leave him where he is until the paramedics arrive. Even if he was pierced^1 by one of the poles, it would be better to leave it as it is because it would limit the amount of bleeding. 1. Just thinking about that reminded me of a story of a guy who had a "plug" of flesh removed from his leg when a pole went through his thigh.


Treblehawk

Yeah, but it’s not the driver so much as all the people gathering around trying to open the doors and creating a more chaotic scene. In the US we secure the crash area because people get in the way and do stupid things, and stopped traffic causes more accidents.


Joker-Smurf

Good point.


JrZ_Juice

Pole patrol, pole patrol we’ll be there on the double..


Lord_Schmurda

It was Henry Ruggs test driving a Beamer.


ana_constant

Yeah, this was is bucharest, he failed to stop at a police hail, they chased him and he lost control of the car. He was drunk and on drugs

That is a quality built light pole there!


itsyourmomcalling

But GTA5 taught me I can roll up and tap a light pole and it'll snap like it was held in by dental floss!?


BluPengwin

A lot of them do actually. Most of em have breakaway bolts if they're hit.


Dougdluxx

NoPixel's vibranium, titanium, Wakanda technology light poles would like to have a word with your GTAV car.


Pharah_is_my_waIfu

That was a lie. All light poles, traffic signals, and trees are standing strong on the ground. I mean they are very unmovable


liquidliam

They made them solid in GTA4 and apparently the realism was too much for some people


RefrigeratorFancy235

That's not necessarily a measure of quality. Lots of light poles are designed to give way. You can hit them at high speeds without ending up with two half cars so they're safer. Making one this strong is cheaper and easier than having one that is designed to slow a car down, but not be lethal.


Particular-Pain-4666

I'm sure the people and businesses behind it feel differently.


RefrigeratorFancy235

If say the safe one is better for both, more expensive means more profit for the company and safer for people. It's governments that pay for them after all ;).


imacrazyperson

I think he meant safer for the people/businesses actually standing behind the pole, and not the company/government that paid for it to be there.


RefrigeratorFancy235

Ath, yes that makes more sense


dmfd1234

Family buisness was involved in this for quite a few years. This really isn’t a light pole, unless you mean the poles that suspend all of the traffic signals all over this intersection. It’s definitely not cheaper to make stronger ones. We would have a crew vertically auger 10-12 ft down a 4 ft diameter hole, use rebar, pour concrete...it’s quite an undertaking from this pedestal the pole, like the one hit, is mounted etc etc. I guess my point is, you can’t really go cheap and have “ breakaway” parts at these intersections. They need to be able to handle hurricane force winds and cars hitting them at blistering speeds. If we installed breakaway poles, cars would be taking down ALL the stuff hanging from them, all 4 corners of the intersection, f’ing up traffic, every other week. Build it right, don’t worry about it falling and if some dumbass is running from the police and can’t control his vehicle.....well, that’s on him/her.


lemonsludge5000

That makes much more sense to me. Better to let the reckless driver be damaged than the unshielded pedestrians or shops with people inside. Without that pole there and the smaller ones along the sidewalk, innocent people could have definitely been killed. Or if the pole fell over after being hit, people's lives would have been just as much at risk.


vorsegg

Right? Like who built that shit? That's a future fortune 500 company right there with all the bullshit riots going on at the moment.


numbersrejectedbypi

That's what she said!

5 second hang time. 9/10 yeet. Impressive

needlenozened

So its hang time is more correctly measured in years, not seconds.


championofadventure

A friend of mine was driving a semi. A motorcycle came around the corner too fast and drifted into the front of the semi at a speed that no one survives. My friend got out of the truck and without looking at the scene, walked about 100 feet ahead and then turned around and slowly walked back. He said he knew it would be bad and didn’t think he could handle the shock of looking right away. He is still shaken by what he saw.

I wonder if he put the signal on when he started to go left


stackoverflow21

Never pull over with the first siren-howl. Mash it down and make the bastard chase you at speeds up to 120 all the way to the next exit. He will follow. But he won't know what to make of your blinker-signal that says you're about to turn right.


itsyourmomcalling

You have high hopes for BMW drivers

AlphaCenturionLXIX

My dad always told me if a deer jumps in the middle of the road while I’m driving, don’t drastically swerve out of the way to try to avoid it. The reason being: if you hit that deer, you’ll drive through it. If you hit some of these poles, that pole ain’t moving and has more of a chance of killing you die to the sudden stop. This video is a great realization of that.


allinmyneck

That’s a bad ass light pole. Didn’t even break the bulbs.


insanee12

For a second i thought that i was going to see a big disaster but that pole just fold the car in half.

ArmadilloSenior773

Hell of a strong pole


Kaelvoss

Doesn’t seem smart to run up on someone who is being chased by police, especially if they could be dazed and armed


thismelol

According to Wikipedia, there are an estimated 2.6 firearms per 100 ppl in Romania, compared to a country like the US which has 120.5 per 100 ppl. Also, gun deaths are 0.14 per 100,000 compared to US 12.21, That probably didn’t cross their mind because it doesn’t have to. A gun would be the only real danger here since the bloke must’ve been way too fucked up to start stabbing everyone.

bubba7557

Stop light poles in the US generally crumple in a stiff wind for exactly this reason. To prevent cars from wrapping themselves around the pole and killing those inside. Interesting they are so solid in this location
