It may seem like common sense, but it bears repeating – public roads should be driven on in a sensible manner and at sane speeds. As enjoyable as it is to take a car out for a brisk drive, there comes a point in which it all becomes completely antisocial, as this video shows.

In it, a Ford Fiesta is seen driving on a twisty road very quickly, weaving in and out of traffic in the process. Throughout the clip, the driver cuts it very fine passing some of the cars, and pretty soon the road narrows due to roadworks before it curves to the right.

As the corner approaches, a slow-moving Nissan Almera causes the driver to brake hard. That wasn’t enough, and the Fiesta clips the Nissan, causing the latter to spin and crash into the barrier. Instead of stopping, the driver simply speeds off, which only adds to the level of recklessness on display here.

The fact that you should never, under any circumstances, run away from the scene of an accident probably isn’t lost on anyone watching (it’s just not the right thing to do, period), but there’s another lesson that needs to be learnt here. Road conditions are often unpredictable, with things like traffic and roadworks often cropping up, so you’ll never know what’s lurking around the corner.

So if you’re going out on a nice Sunday drive, remember to take it a little easy on the road. At the end of the day, all we want is to have fun, and it’s not fun when there’s an accident involved. If you want to push your car to the limit, there’s always the track – believe us, the money you save by hitting the road isn’t worth it when you crash, or worse, injure or kill another person.

As for what happened afterwards, the driver responsible for causing the crash surrendered after the video went viral earlier in the day. Thankfully, no one was hurt in the incident.
