We are all drivers on the freeways at some point in time. We try to stay in our lanes, attempting to be good traffic citizens, and respect others on the road. Our recognition genuinely asserts itself especially for gigantic semitrucks that are dealing with issues that most of us don't even think about.
The truck driver in the below video posted by TikTok user @jakobjones37 seriously takes one for the team as he avoids a precarious collision. Hats off to the truckers out there that deal with us regular folks that are just thinking about getting to the grocery store and back.

"That is what a responsible driver does rather than running into the back of a bunch of 4-wheel vehicles!" marvels commenter @jamesbateman918.
To which the video creator replies, "I am happy he didn’t just plow into the back of everyone, that’s for sure!"
Viewer of the video @jshale1868 notices the heroic choice that was made in this comment: "He thought of me, not them. Accountable."
That is an act of courage, for sure.
Reader @jshale1868 takes in the incredible sight, saying, "Never seen one roll completely over like that."
We post videos such as these as part of our coverage because we hope there are specific behaviors drivers can learn and implement to help make our roads safer for all of us.
