I could have used a few other adjectives to describe this character; most inconsiderate or selfish. Dangerous would have worked too. All those descriptions would work in this case, along with a whole lot more that we can't use in polite company.

When you watch the video you'll be astounded, not only by the stupidity of what this driver is doing, but by the fact that he posted in on YouTube.

This wasn't some private bit of video footage lifted from a security camera, or surreptitiously taken from a passing car. No sir, somebody in very close proximity filmed this clown for about a minute and a half, and then posted it to YouTube for all the world to see.

And before you jump to any conclusions, I'm pretty sure this video was filmed in the US of A. It's clearly a North American truck, the speedometer is calibrated in miles per hour and if you look closely -- if you can draw your gaze away from the central action -- you'll see a few easily recognizable carrier names going by in the opposite direction. I'm afraid, dear readers, this is locally produced content.

In some other place and time, this stunt would be right up there with running with the bulls, getting shot out of a cannon, walking through a pit full of venomous snakes or going over Niagara Falls in a barrel. Except here, this moron runs a pretty big risk of taking somebody else out with him -- somebody other than the photographer, that is.

It saddens me to watch the lengths FMCSA, DOT, NTSB and all the other agencies go to get bad drivers off the road, and then keep them off. This guy illustrates the folly of that whole process. Nothing bad happened to this guy this time, so he got away with his stunt. He was kind enough however, to leave us this little video clip as a testament to stupidity.

I certainly hope someone can step up and identify this putz and bring him to the attention of the appropriate authorities. And if you're the carrier who hired him, I suggest you try to tighten up your hiring practices -- and make sure your insurance is paid up.

    His prepass/toll transponder is visible in multiple frames of this video. Zoom in on that get the numbers (near barcode) and get this pile off the road!

    they may be on USA soil, but they may be from Canada, no wait, from Mars pulling a stunt like this. They are getting their 15 min of fame, lets hope/pray they don't go for another shot at it.

    These guys are not speaking Spanish, but some Middle East language!

    No, these idiot are from Pakistan most likely or India. The music is kashmagen or pushtu, I heard it all the time in Iraq as we had numerous SCWs from those countries. ( Sub Contract Workers)

    Apparently, driving on the highways of America is too boring for these two. I suppose it doesn't match the thrill of being shot at daily or the occasional rocket attack, so can we blame them for a bit of derring-do? Perhaps we should arrange for them to take a trip back to the home country so they can have a bit more excitement in their lives? One-way, of course...

    Well if any one wants to find this guy the fast way you can freeze footage and zoom in on the prepass on the windshield to find out who the prepass is registered to and the truck it's registered to I can almost do it on my smart phone but it's fuzzy

    You can zoom in on the prepass to see who the owner is and what truck it's registered to by the prepass number with freezing the footage and zooming in my cell does it but it's fuzzy on it need computer to clean it up

    Looks like 70MPH. Maybe Feds would think this is OK with speed limiter. Find him and revoke license so he doesn't end up in another truck

    Just another moron giving us professionals a bad wrap..theres always 1 spoiling the batch. Real truck drivers dont do this and real truck drivers love are people and want them to be safe and we'll sacrafice our own lives to avoid hurting others out there when it comes down to it! He needs to be revoked from driving anything period and sent to prison asap!
