Must have been a good 18 years ago, but was travelling the 401 back to Toronto from Kingston. Road conditions were poor… could barely see the edges of the road. Big rigs were flying by at full posted speed limit. As we came to a curve in the highway, I watched one drive straight…. straight off the road and into the ditch. Made zero attempt to follow the road.

One of the most scary roadtrips I had ever been on…..
