Video: Near head-on crash in Detroit Lakes

There are times when I wonder how any of us make it home alive, given the number of awful drivers on the road.

Take this guy in Detroit Lakes who was captured on a state trooper’s dash cam almost killing someone.

It happened on Highway 59 when a man had turned from a four-lane highway onto a two lane road and started driving in the oncoming lane.

Then he doubled down with the trooper by telling him the car in the correct lane was in the wrong.

In the airplane-flying business, we’re required to prove every two years that we’re capable of safely piloting our vehicles. What would happen if we adopted the same philosophy to driving? Why do we treat driver’s licenses as lifetime passes?
