Acting out of frustration is never a healthy thing to do, especially when you’re behind the wheel of a car and the road is slippery. Still, don’t take our word for it, just watch the driver of this Mazda MX-5 demonstrate what we mean.
Apparently, he was stuck behind a learner driver “for a while”, doing either the speed limit or below, which has been known to annoy certain sports car owners. When the road split into two lanes, he decided to make his move and the rest is history.
Maybe somebody should have warned him that if you’re going to channel your inner Max Verstappen and launch yourself on the inside during wet conditions, you better wait until you’ve cleared the corner before flooring it again.
The accident took place on December 4th in Stoke, England, where it tends to rain a lot during winter months, so you’d think that people would know not to push their luck while driving, especially with RWD cars like that sporty Mazda.
Of course, one should probably not allow themselves to be overcome by frustration when stuck behind a learner driver in the first place. It’s not like the latter can help the fact that they’re slow and besides, blasting past them in an angry manner will only raise their anxiety levels.
So in a way, this really was an “instant karma” moment, since the MX-5 driver pretty much did everything he could wrong heading into that turn. Still, we’re happy to report that he wasn’t injured.
