    Self-driving runaway truck - GIF

    Not exactly sure what we have here. Dieseling? Ignition turned on while standing outside vehicle, while vehicle in gear? Rebellious truck decided he's had enough?

    Without a regulatory "Stay Back; Vehicle Backs Frequently" it's hard to say.
    Might deliver to small shops with addresses on a roundabout?
    That one guy falls off part way through says it was started in gear and bingo!
    Why he couldn't enter, and seat right-hand drive is unknown.
    Lawn bowling with large stones to chock a wheel is best part of all!
    Sincerely,

    Reminds me of a bull in a china shop with a broken leg (one or both front wheel spindles down and out round 1). Why it started in the first place...Who's Nose, but the spindle breaking may have cut some feeds to the brain and it went even more berserk and needs to be put down or at least call 1-800-hows my driving. Is it actually a Self Driving Truck or a conventional truck that got loose?

    Cam operator realizes part way through that he should be in landscape mode, otherwise he is going to cop heaps of abuse when he posts the footage.
    Forgets to turn auto-orientation on first. Going to cop even more abuse

    Typical East-Indian Driving demonstration In Vancouver. It was probably the company driver's test. We have to be more stringent with expensive trucks. These are not Taxi cabs. We require certain skill levels. Pass. You dodged the falling rocks fairly well. We'll give you the Revelstoke run but in 6 months you will be re-tested. And this time we will expect you to go forwards as well.
