Yes, of course. I can't say about the base of the ladder, but they're typically not secured to whatever they're standing on, USUALLY the Earth, sure. But the base of the ladder in the bucket doesn't look like it's going anywhere, it's in the bottom of the V of the bucket. The top looks secured to the trunk.

The whole thing is dangerous, no doubt. But it looks like precautions have been taken.

I rigged a tripod and a cheap digital camera in GrandCherokeeOne for a while.

I carry more than two people too often for that set up.

What an idiot. The behavior of the driver of the pickup truck is illegal here in Washington. ON PAPER, the left lane is for passing only. No camping like this jerk. In fact, there's been a suggestion in our legislature this session that holding up traffic in the left lane be assessed an additional and increasing penalty for how much slower than the posted limit your traveling. Now, assuming the driver of the pickup was doing EXACTLY the speed limit, he might be faultless, but still not using the lane as it is designed/desired, for passing.

But back to the NYS, good grief, the driver of the camaro should be in jail.

A dose of estrogen might be more appropriate to subdue all the raging testosterone
that was generating those emotions of road rage and really bad judgement.

Passing on the left median is not OK in anyone's book, and that's what
appears to have lead to this "accident". After all, what could go wrong ?
Other than that, the "right" or "wrong" of driving in the inside lane, makes little matter.

Had all 3 drivers both eased off on the pedal and enjoyed a nice sunny day's drive,
they would each have all been in town about the same time, little worse for wear.

On the other hand, maybe if the Camaro's driver got to town a little bit later,
he/she might have been T-boned at some intersection by a different car, and killed !
Karma can sometimes be inevitable that way.

Fuck those left lane bandits. They park their ass in the left lane until it's time to cut across traffic for their exit. I don't care if they are doing the speed limit, I don't care if they are doing 20 over the fucking speed limit, they have no business in the left lane if they are not passing. The worst are pacing the car in the next lane because they have their cruise control set at the same speed as the car next to them. Then the car behind them in the left fucking lane is pacing the car ahead, while playing Kumbaya on their iPhone app, and everyone else on the road can go to hell.

Lamplighter, take your fucking estrogen and stick it up your ass. Then take your Ralf Nader amateur philosophy and get the fuck out of the way. You are a speed bump in the road of real people.

*shrug*

Not here, particularly. Though your claims about estrogen are specious at best. I'd be happy to trade hypothetical shoulda/coulda/woulda if onlies about the possible future outcomes of the drivers in the video, but ... to what end?

Going from what we can see in the video,

the pickup driver is wrong for camping in the passing lane.

the camaro driver is wrong-ER for passing on the median and directly caused the accident multiple car collision due to his reckless driving.

There's no defense for either one of them.

What it looks like to me is that the p/u driver is cluelessly on autopilot/cruise control or being a passive/aggressive jackass. And the camaro driver is a road-raging sociopath. I kinda wish he'd gotten hurt, though I'm certain the video evidence will ensure his suffering. Goody.

Those left lane bandits are egregious on a sliding scale that corresponds inversely with the amount of traffic on the road. If you are in a traffic jam, it's perfectly fine to camp out in the left lane. If the road is wide open, camping out in the left lane and creating a rolling road block is just the worst.

Around here, traffic is so heavy, cars are always camped out in the left lane, and there would be a car directly in front of that camper and also one directly in front of the truck (with an appropriate gap dependent on traffic speed.)

All I'm saying is there should be no one-size-fits-all condemnation of people in the left lane. Depends entirely on traffic.
