I'm sure glad I wasn't in the vicinity! I once was driving on a freeway and a chunk of something hit my windshield right in front of my face and shattered the glass! Luckily whatever hit the windshield bounced off instead of penetrating through the glass. There was no one in front of me and no overpasses nearby.

I wonder if these geniuses thought of consequences to others.

I'll bet next time he secures that strap that was slapping him on the head all the way down.
