Home / Automotive / Cars / Girlfriend Pulls Up Emergency Break On Highway!


Guy tries to catch up to a bunch of bikers on the highway, girlfriend then yanks on the emergency brake and, as you can probably guess, the worst case scenario then unfolds soon after.

Sometimes actions might have good intentions but, instead of following through with those good intentions, the result is something that’s a little bit uglier as it ends up getting lost somewhere along the way and things just seem to go awry.

In this one, at least from the caption that goes along with the Facebook video, we are left to believe that such a situation might have been what went down in this scene from Mexico. However, as you do see, the result here gets pretty ugly to say the least. Let’s just say, this should probably be a pretty valuable lesson for anyone who lays eyes on a video like this.

From the looks of things, when a group of motorcycles went barrelling down the highway, somebody in Volkswagen attempted to catch up with or pass them. When you drive a high-performance vehicle, people trying to constantly race you is something that you get used to, however, what happens next, according to the video poster, is anything but ordinary.

It's a situation that, although somewhat common and innocent, turned into a pretty crazy way to end the day. It’s said that the girlfriend of the car’s driver would end up trying to stop him from getting into a little bit of friendly competition.

As the video insists, she pulls the emergency brake of the car and you see the rear wheels lock up without any type of notice. From there, it’s pretty much game over as the driver loses all control, leaving the vehicle to slide sideways and eventually roll over several times before coming to a stop.

All occupants were reportedly ok and while several postings of the video claim that it was the passenger who pulled the brake, Mexican news sources haven’t reported that to be absolute fact.
