Firefighters in Dallas combined a speedy response with stylish manoeuvre on a highway in rush hour.
We would hope fire truck drivers would be some of the best drivers out there. Having to navigate a gigantic and heavy truck through everyday roads, with traffic or not, requires good precision, timing, and a lot of vigilance.
Actually, that’s not drifting. Just rear axle steering. There is a second driver in the back that controls the rear end because it’s so large.The rear axle steering of the truck allowed the back end to remain straight forward down the road, while the front cut across to the far left lane.
Having pulled off the suave stunt with impeccable safety, the firefighters casually continue on their way as if it’s the most natural thing in the world.
Amazing team work from both drivers 🙂
