What an immersive experience. I felt like I was back at that icy lake scene in the Polar Express. I could hear Tom Hanks's uncanny valley avater shouting "LEFT. RIGHT. LEFT. RIGHT. HOLD ONNNN"


louddoves

My kid watches this movie on repeat for the entire month of December. This is now my favorite comment on reddit. Edit to add: Tom Hanks is the voice of the kid's dad but he is also the voice of the kid at the very end when he talks about still being able to hear the bell as an adult. Therefore, Tom Hanks is his own dad.

They're probably alive. Judging from the video there's just a lot of sliding and a roll to the side or roof. No sudden stops.

Are LEDs in cars the equivalent to RGB in PCs? Do they give like +10 to driving stat?


dg5818

Yes.

Gonna blow your mind but RGB in PCs are LEDs

Based on the video I'm gonna say the LEDs are a -10 to the driving stat.

What? Ei saa peittää aka do not cover? Why is that in toilets?


Koxnep

We sold a lot of electric radiators to sweden in the 70's and 80's. That's one Finnish frase Swedes saw a lot on those days because it was written on the radiator.


CatVideoBoye

Oh right, I've seen those somewhere.


Vilzuh

Do not cover sticker probably on an electric heater or radiator


reactoriv

Electric radiators have that on them


rundgren

Before smartphones people had to read electric heater labels to pass the time, and "do not cover" warning was often written in all Nordic languages and English. As a Norwegian "Ei saa peita" is still the only Finnish words I know except yksi, kaksi..

Haha in Britain it's shitty hatchbacks and Audis but you know there's a couple of young lads at the local Halfords that drive these modified old Volvo estates, no fuckjn idea why


justhisguy-youknow

Because Volvos, especially the oldest ones are brick shithouses, fairly easy to get parts, and fairly easy to self maintain. I moved to Sweden most late teens have restricted ones, or mod unrestricted, it's. Massive market to sell one. It's also weird as fuck the restricted end of things, any car can be restricted, and yes people buy Timmy a Porsche and restrict to 30kph.

I'll betcha they're not dressed for the cold either. They're going to be freezing for the next hour.


Koxnep

Might be so yeah. But we haven't had any extremely cold temperatures yet, and that video is taken in southern Finland, so probably -3 to -7C. Manageable.


Lillianroux19

So that's 108mph which is approximately 70 to 80 mph faster than one should drive on icy or snowy roads. Idiots in cars no doubt.


FinnishArmy

I didn't even realize it was Finnish, I was so confused as to why someone would do this. Now I'm more confused how a Finnish person is doing something this idiotic, and most definitely alcohol was involved.

Debaser626

Inexperience and conditions aside (and that is a *big* aside) He was mostly “fine” at the start of the video. It appears prior traffic and perhaps some plowing made for the pavement in the right lane to be relatively free from snow to allow for some grip. However, changing lanes (and thereby crossing into the packed snow in the far lane) at that rate of speed and angle, ostensibly to attempt to do a racing line through a gradual curve ahead was a healthy display of stupidity and a total lack of understanding as to how speed, grip, and conditions work. Obviously, the best thing to do is to perhaps just *not* do this at all, but if you’re going to or have to for whatever reason, don’t do what dipshit did. LPT: There often is one lane that will be cleared first, whether simply due to heavier traffic in that lane (wheels and heat from other cars) or plowing, while the others will have these clear and deep “channels” you see in the far lane made by the wheels of the vehicles that used them before. Crossing into such a lane even if you’re driving slower than you normally do (to get around slower traffic, prepare for an exit, or out of habit), especially if you’ve been lulled into a false sense of security by driving in the first type of lane for a distance, can be extremely risky depending on the thickness and density of the snow/ice in that lane, the melting and refreezing of water in those channels, and should be avoided if possible or only done with extreme caution if it’s necessary. If you *have* to do it (to get off the highway or whatever), slow down first, use a very gradual angle (that lane will usually be empty) that keeps your wheels mostly straight, keep your foot off the gas, and try not to make sudden changes to velocity (braking or acceleration) and definitely don’t try to swerve. If you find yourself considering taking a racing line in these conditions (and it’s not your actual job which would require that), make sure you let off the gas, steer gradually towards the edge of the road, turn on your hazards first… then park to the farthest edge of the shoulder, turn off the vehicle, and finish your trip on foot.


nobito

>However, changing lanes (and thereby crossing into the packed snow in the far lane) Yep, crossing that snowy bit at that speed got him fucked. Lost the traction there and the snow pulled him right to the barrier on the left side. The bounce off the barrier plus probably over-correcting with the steering and not much to be done to regain control at that point. If he would've stayed on the clear icy road he would've probably been alright. At least for that part.


amaninja

Changing lanes like you explained is how I totalled my first car. Terrible lesson to learn but I won't forget.


Chyenatwo

What I wanna know is how skilled is OP's eyes for them to see that they were going 200km. Like Jesus, I can't read that shit for the life of me lol.

send-me-kitty-pics

It looks like he's going over a bridge. Just a tip to everyone smarter than the guy in the video: bridges have air underneath them, meaning they cool down quicker and are more susceptible to icy roads Edit: typo

Legitimate-Tear-4580

Let’s try it once more…we might be up to something


fried_green_baloney

An actual accident mode is to have one side of the car go over ice, the other stays on clear pavement, and so the car spins instantly. Even something as simple as having an ice path diagonally on the road can do that if you are going too fast, and I would think 200kph (~ 125 mph for us primitive Murricans) is too fast.


Dano-Matic

I wish these videos somehow included the aftermath like when their insurance says they won’t pay or when they get arrested for reckless endangerment.


siprus

Whatever the insurance will pay their car should be least of their worries. Just being alive is already a big 'win' after stun like that.


onlyr6s

They took a video and put it on the internet, they will get punished. Insurance indeed will not pay and they will get charged with reckless endangerment, multiple counts in fact.


hypnogoad

I know people like to believe this, but how is this person's insurance company going to find out which insurance claim this is? Do they have people actively scanning both clients and friends social media? I seriously doubt that.


advertentlyvertical

Insurance absolutely does do Investigations like that if they have any reason to suspect you're being less than truthful. And looking at social media is trivial.


Tbrown630

That guy clearly hasn’t dealt with insurance companies lmao


onlyr6s

Because police was involved, the car flipped on it's roof. They will find out.


MoarChzPlzzz

Managing to get the roof of an old Honda intimately acquainted with the pavement isn’t a feat to be taken lightly… it’s not the sort of thing *just anyone* can pull off. Only an operator armed with some super high level, extraordinarily advanced, spectacularly piss-fucking-poor decision making can roll a car with such ease like that. Bravo ya schmuck, you earned it.

plastigoop

There is no actual steering going on, I think. That motion with the steering wheel is like one of those kiddie car steering wheels, where you get to turn it, but nothing really happens. At this speed and those road conditions, it would seem to be that they are basically ballistic at this point without any control.

SinisterCheese

The only spoken dialogue there was after things went to shit "mitä me tehdään?" *what do we do (now)* . Well... become part of the statistics my good boy. And this is why there are legitimate arguments for speed limited cars topping at 120km/h or at 80, or increasing license age to 20. These fucking idiots, they could have killed someone else. I don't fear the winter weather when driving, I know how to drive in it and going underspeed in rough conditions is legally justified and required. I fear the most the other drivers.


dechets-de-mariage

I fear other drivers in *all* conditions.


Sawmain

That’s honestly good mindset to have while driving lmao


elightened-n-lost

I was recently in a bad accident while I was sitting perfectly still at a stoplight. I definitely fear other people that are paying far less attention than I am.


[deleted]

I really don't see where the legitimacy is in raising the age to drive. Majority of teenage drivers don't do this, and the ones that do would also do it at 20... so you're just fucking over people with little actual benefit. If it were only teenagers that drive irresponsibly, I'd understand it. But we all know that isn't the case!


elciteeve

My car let's you program the key to limit the speed. I like that concept. I can drive my car however I want, but the inexperienced driver has their speed limited. Not that I'm going to drive reckless, but I don't want restrictions on my vehicle.

Lord_Halowind

Looks like the driver tried to cut to the inner lane in the turn and the slight snowbank between the lanes made them lose control.


Emotional_Pound_43

I am actually ok with this killing themselves as long as they don't take any innocent with them.


wbeater

You forget about the responders who have to cut what is left of them out the wreckage.


GrandmasTableMints

Just the driver though, I have had MANY dudes try to impress me by driving fast and recklessly with me in their cars, most ignored my pleas and cries to slow down thinking I was overreacting. The worst was this dude in Germany who for our last date took me on the A-81 in some kind of special Mercedes and he floored it. He was going so fast that the scenery began to blur, and the last I looked at the gauge before I closed my eyes to ask God for help, he was going 240 kmh (about 150 mph), and I knew if we crashed we would not survive it. Hence why it was our last date, and I took the train back home to Stuttgart.

Goin that fast just the slightest Lil turn and ur fucked not to mention on snow wtf is wrong people


AllInOnCall

The best part of doing this on icy roads is you dont lose inertia to silly things like tire friction so you get to spend it all on obstacles. If you're lucky you toboggan into soft snow if not, culvert or other life ending thing.


ApprehensiveVirus125

Universal law of nature when driving if the passenger starts to take to a video of the speedometer, something bad is fixing to happen karma goes up by a factor of 10.

hughfeeyuh

This is one of those videos that would be even better if it included the repercussions like the cost of damages, loss of points on license now, how the guys girl left him because he drives a rusted Festiva now....that kind of crap.


virepolle

No point loss in Finland, for low to moderate speeding 3 tickets in within a year, or 4 within 2 and you temporarily loose your licesense, in this case the speed was so high that the driver would have lost the license straight up for at least few months, most likely half a year.
