Hey, check out this cool explanation of the physics involved in cars jumping a buckled highway at speed. There’s a DOT highway-cam video that shows some neck-snapping going on. Some of these look scary. Love the tailgater 42 secs in.

Personally, since I try to remain stealthily in the right lane (oh, right, that’s not stealthy, that’s just good etiquette) I’d have missed it. I wonder if the sun was such that people didn’t see it coming. If I knew it was there, I’d have to run out, steal my neighbor’s kids high-school crap-can and do repeated runs at it until something broke.

He’d probably never know. His radio is so loud, he’d never hear the broken suspension.
