I thought we were going to see some drama. I was mistaken.

They could make a sport out of this. I was actually entirely engrossed the entire time, silently celebrating when each vehicle made the corner. That was very entertaining.

Neither driver exited their vehicles to curse the other, engage in pointless road rage or shoot anybody- this tells me this happened somewhere other than the U.S.

Less entertaining than it could`ve been.

Love it. I was very impressed too that the person driving the car just sat and waited for both bus and semi to turn the corner. Most people are in such a hurry that they put themselves and other drivers in dangerous positions, just so they can get to their destination a couple of seconds quicker than they would do otherwise. You don`t get there quicker if you`re dead.

Bravo!

In my experience, "sharing the road" like the drivers did in this video and in other more hair-raising, high-speed, quick-thinking maneuvers- are things I`ve only ever seen or have been in the middle of while abroad.

The road construction here in the U.S. (for the most part) is well thought out and safety-oriented but unfortunately this order and convenience has lulled drivers into a sense of complacency and entitlement producing road rage, clusterdrats, and accidents at the slightest variance.

Well that was boring as drat. If I wanted to watch cars drive normally, I`d go outside.

Though nicely handled, I think the the truck should`ve gone first.

Having driven a semi across the Appalachians a number of times, I have to say that that was impressive. Both the skill and the courtesy. Well done; I wouldn`t want to make that drive... ever.

That video was named `Dangerous driving` on Youtube. `Professional drivers showing courtesy, common sense, and excellent driving skills` probably doesn`t get as many hits.

@5cats: That`s what I thought too, but I think we`re wrong. Check out that little widening of the road on the trucks side.

Holy cow...both the truck driver and the bus driver know what the fu*k they`re doing. I would`ve assumed that since it`s harder to back up a rig, and the widening of the road appeared prominent on the buses side, that the truck should go first. Boy, was I wrong. Cool vid, led.

1:18, well, the Semi- HAS to go first since the bus cannot squeeze past it...
1:25 Nope...
2:00 lolz! Expert driving! Well done!

Would have been simpler to let the semi go first though...

Why would you ever allow buses and trucks to use that road? Accidents waiting to happen.
