I remember reading a report on an inquest into a passenger who was in a car that this happened to.

The car was waiting to turn right, got rear ended, and was pushed into the path of an oncoming HGV.
In fairness that's a very good tip. I rarely if ever do this, but it's good to know.

Congratulations on your selfishness and F**king things up for other road users
Oh C'mon! Seriously!

What is I don't want to be told now?

And how is a simple observation selfish?
