As if we needed another reminder to keep our eyes on the road, a herd of deer demonstrates just how much havoc can be wreaked in a split second. Leaping ungulates recently darted right in front of, over, and on top of an innocent BMW
We came across this video from the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office’s Facebook page
We’re sure the deer were just as perplexed. “What is up with this a large steel object suddenly plowing into our procession? We’re running ova here!” Luckily, white-tails can jump, and one surges straight up, landing on the roof of the BMW and bounding off into the forest like nothing ever happened. Another one isn’t so fortunate, landing on the trunk and sliding off back towards the direction is came from. Hopefully it found its friends later.
The action was recorded on the dashcam of a vehicle following the BMW. Reportedly, no animals, hoofed or human, were injured. However, we do have to applaud the quick reflexes of the BMW driver, though we’d probably be pretty on-alert if we were driving a BMW ahead of a police car
So the lesson here, kids, is only buy cars that have good brakes and sharp handling! No, wait, it was keep your eyes on the road. But also, buy good cars too.
