If you’ve ever traveled across country, spanning long stretches of mountainous roads, you might have spotted runaway truck ramps on the side of the highway and not known exactly what they were for. If you still need a dictionary after this, I don’t know what to tell you because this video shows us the runaway truck ramps that you see when they’re put into action.

It’s all captured on a CCTV camera monitoring the highways and pointing directly at one of these runaway truck ramps as it captures the ramp being used to the full extent when a truck of barrels out of control and hits the ramp that is the only thing between it and sheer destruction.

Now, the big time damage might’ve been prevented but it still looks like this semi truck driver is in for a little bit of a tangle as the truck gets cocked sideways and most certainly gets put into an uncomfortable situation that probably did do some damage to the truck itself and whatever was on board as well.

Catch the capture down below that shows this truck driver who was probably is just happy to be alive after something like that. I can say one thing for certain: going through an experience like that certainly isn’t just another day on the job for this driver.
