The Power Of Modern Brakes, Talk About a Close Call!

Posted by: Jeremy Patterson on 11/17/2021

This is definitely one of the closest calls we’ve ever seen. The dashcam is rolling in this big rig when traffic starts to stack up just ahead. With little warning, the cars in the middle lane slow to a crawl and the semi’s driver is forced to put his brakes to the ultimate test, and they pass with flying colors.

It honestly almost defies explanation that the driver was able to get this semi stopped in time, saving himself, his company and the other drivers sitting perilously in the highway a major headache, or worse! However he did it, the driver should be commended because right up until he didn’t, it certainly looked like he had no choice but to plow into the car in front of him. The brakes on big rigs are certainly impressive, but this is a whole new level of “WOW”!
