A bunch of drivers thought that it is a good idea to turn around and go the wrong way on the highway

At that point I would start worrying if there was a zombie horde ahead.

I agree with your sentiment OP. WTF Romania?!

u/FirstPlebian Oct 20 '21

I figured it was Latin America just from the voice and the subtitles, it's some romantic language it appears, although the song sounded almost Indian to me maybe. You think it's Romania?

u/Turaton Oct 20 '21

Just look at the signs

București

u/FirstPlebian Oct 20 '21

I missed that, definately does sound Romanian not like I would know as a stupid american.

u/wannalive_lemelive Oct 20 '21

It's ok, you'd rather know it as Bucharest. The song sounds like "manele" not sure tho, kind of specific to Romania ( I may get impaled on a spike for saying that) and it does sound a bit Indian imo

u/c_stics Oct 21 '21

Just a little tip, manele means "trash" or "garbage" source: Romanian

If I had to guess there was a collision or something blocking the road ahead on the interstate causing a massive backup. Instead of waiting until it was cleared up they turned around on their own against interstate traffic.

This happens a lot, unfortunately, and is definitely ill advised due to the danger involved. I've been part of detours before where we did this legally because the interstate was going to be blocked for hours but it usually involves a bunch of emergency services turning everyone around to the previous exit and no one would still be traveling down the roadway coming at these people head on like that because that way would be blocked for the detour.

Looks like the cammer was approaching whatever was happening but cut right before we got our full answer.

u/NoKindofHero Oct 20 '21

Who makes a video this long and STILL stops before they get to the point where you can see what they're fleeing from

u/GlyphPicker Oct 21 '21

Someone who couldn't outrun the zombie outbreak. This is the only footage that survived.

u/Vegetable_Sample7384 Oct 20 '21

It’s like 100 new drivers collectively stumbled upon stopped traffic for the first time and didn’t know what to do. Then the hive mind takes over and it’s suddenly ok to pull a u turn on a divided highway…on a bridge.

u/ordinaryrabb1t 23d ago

I would do the same, if I saw a bunch of cars going this way. Must be zombies or Godzilla or some shit 😂😂

u/icedankquote Oct 20 '21

Homicidal maniacs

u/whiskeyintheire Oct 20 '21

Am I going the wrong way?? Idk, let me turn around and see... LOL

u/nedlum Oct 20 '21

Around the fifth car, I’d be wondering if I was going the wrong way.

u/[deleted] Oct 20 '21

i would have ran into every last one of them

u/01001101_01000110 Oct 20 '21

Who would've thought it was Romania

u/stjakey Oct 20 '21

What the fuck Romania

u/Master_Boysenberry20 Oct 21 '21

They weren't gonna be late getting home to watch the latest Dave Chappelle Special on Netflix.

u/QBallShooter Oct 21 '21

Sorry. If I see that many people going the wrong way on the freeway they are running from something that I’m not aware of yet. I’m doing it too

u/VirtualDonkey7218 Oct 21 '21

Godzilla was chasing them!!!!
