Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about truck drivers' creepiest experiences from their time out on the road. Turns out if you spend enough time out on the road, you're bound to encounter some especially spooky phenomenon.
When solving a problem, it's important to think outside the bun. This homeowner found that if he wanted to build a garage, it would cost extra. So what did he do? He found a more mobile garage. For another intriguing loophole, here's a bold HOA fighting strategy in the form of a radio tower threat.
This dude wouldn't stop parking on their property and making things a problem, so they turned it into an expensive place to park. This sounds like the kind of thing you can only do if you have a lot of patience and an extremely bored sheriff. When neighbors get into disputes, things can get ugly, like this neighbor who hammered nails into a fence and got their yard redecorated, or this guy who towed in pro revenge on his petty neighbor.
After the viral fame of Tesla's CyberTruck, its rough for any company to pull off that kind of hype. But one company doesn't need to destroy supposedly bulletproof glass to prove they have a contender to bring to the fight. Rivian is not a Kickstarter startup looking to generate interest. The company has recently completed over $1.3 billion in funding from Amazon, Ford, and Cox Automotive. Amazon alone ordered 100,000 of the vehicles.
The company had over 100,000 pre-orders before the vehicle itself had even been unveiled, and a few weeks later that had tripled. The focus of the company was to make a truck that could get down and dirty as much as the rest of what was on the market, unlike the Tesla offering. And also combine that with the needs of conservation-minded consumers.
Witnesses saw this dog drive a semi-truck all by itself over a tree and into a car. Police say the dog must have put the idling vehicle into drive while the owner was in a nearby store. No one, including the dog, was hurt. According to this video, he was even jumping and playing right after the accident:
A man in central Texas reported his truck was vandalized by Black Lives Matter supporters Sept. 9, because he had decorated the vehicle with messages saying "Police Lives Matter".
Well, according to the local FOX News affiliate, it turns out that was a complete lie.
Scott Lattin, a disabled veteran, told Whitney police on Sept. 8 someone tagged his truck with "Black Lives Matter" and other graffiti because he displayed pro-police messages and symbols on his pickup.
But on Friday afternoon, Whitney police arrested Lattin on a misdemeanor charge of making a false police report.
Apparently, Lattin made the police report about the spray painting, then further vandalized his own truck before the news got the story.
"We had initial video when the officers took the report and then when we saw your story on Channel 4. When we looked at those two videos, there were some differences in those and that led us to take the investigation into a different direction," Bentley said.
Bentley said when they took the report there was no damage to the inside of the truck. But when FOX4 showed up, Lattin showed that the glove box was ripped off and the seats slashed.
Police arrested Lattin for making a fake police report and the damage totaled the vehicle, adding up to $5,000.
So, I guess the joke's on him??
This driver better be glad he pulled this stunt in Canada.
In an intense video, police officers can be seen ordering a man out of his giant truck as he continually rams back and forth into two police cruisers.
The chaotic encounter happened after midnight on Saturday at an impaired-driving checkpoint in Salt Spring Island, Canada, according to Times Colonist.
Cops tried to break in the vehicle with their batons, but it doesn't even seem to faze the driver.
After speeding away, the driver was found inside the overturned vehicle clutching an axe and trying to set the truck on fire, according to police. After a several hour stand-off, he was apprehended under the Mental Health Act.
Dang, rough night.
It’s unclear how he expected this standoff to end, but this man definitely got what he deserved.
Watch as guy backs his truck up towards an alligator that is just minding its own business and ends up starting a fight that he isn’t going to win.
The beast begins snapping its massive jaws at the truck to make it crystal clear that he does not want to be bothered, but the man doesn’t listen.
“Hey watch my truck!” he says in the clip.
A few seconds later, it tears his bumper clean off the back of the vehicle to put an end to the nonsense.
Gator:1, Man: 0.
