Whether you're driving a truck or a sports car, taking too wide a turn can end very badly indeed

Low speeds and being aware of the size of your vehicle are two skills to turning at tight intersections, unfortunately, whether in the USA or Brazil, not everyone has that required knowledge it seems. In one clip, shot by dashcam in Nova Nazaré, Brazil in July 2018, a huge lorry goes a long way wide around a turn, into oncoming traffic. The driver of the car in its way panics and reverses suddenly, only to crash into the filmer's car behind. In another, filmed on 19 August 2021 in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA, a silver Camaro tried to take a turn too fast and overshot its lane, hitting an SUV waiting at the lights. Unfortunately the Camaro didn't stop, making the incident a hit-and-run, and the driver with the dashcam forgot to hand the footage to the SUV driver.
