RE: Wrecked at 120 MPH... zig-zag it!
Made the same error once. Kid rolled a large rock out into the roadway.....
Now I always zig-zag if at all possible Vs straddling roadway debris.
One must make a split-second decision and if the object is even a wee bit too tall it'$ too late.
It's easier to pick up on the zig-zag habit if you ride motorcycles...
