The Responsibility of Owning a High-Powered Vehicle
When you get behind the wheel of a car, you accept responsibility for the safety of yourself and others on the road. The burden of responsibility is such that “vehicular manslaughter” is a felony crime. This is especially true for those who drive exotic and high-powered vehicles like the Lamborghini Huracan.
Popular YouTuber Alex Choi found out first-hand how quickly things can go south. While messing around on a public road, he recklessly pulled out right in front of a Yamaha R1. That move nearly caused a potentially fatal accident.
Who is Alex Choi?
Alex Choi has built a large following on social media. He gained popularity among those interested in modified exotic cars and extreme vehicle customization. Choi was messing around in his Lamborghini Huracan when the incident shown in the video occurs.
Choi, for some unknown reason, turned off the shoulder and drifted across the public road. Coming at him was a motorcycle that he claims he never saw. Thankfully, they missed one another, if only by inches, and nobody was hurt.
Choi immediately pulled over and apologized, but a woman at the scene was visibly upset and let him know it. The motorcyclist circled back and the two exchanged a few words, and in the way of men, gave a quick “bro hug”, and all was well.
The Lamborghini Huracan
Apart from reckless driving, the issue seems to be the Huracan’s blind spot. Owners are speaking out with complaints about the car’s lack of visibility.
“Every time I drive the Huracan, the way the car is designed makes a ton of major blind spots. Almost to the point that I would rather be driving a normal sedan if there was no performance.” – JetFalcon
Whether the fault lies with the car’s design, human error, or bad judgment, we are all thankful that no one was hurt.
