What would you do

You are driving down the road and there is another car coming the other way... they are headed for a drive to driver head on collision... only you the drive and he the driver would connect.... sitting right behind you is your 2 year old son.... 

Do you swerve so that he side swipes you, making contact with the side of teh car right where your baby is? Or do you make that drive to drive connection? 


Thankfully i didnt have to make that choice the guy realized and moved into his own lane almost last minute... he was looking at his cell phone

Could you have swerved off the road?

I would slam on the brakes and ditch the car. Or a side swipe which is probably better than head on, especially at high speeds

NOt really, the side of the road is kind of a ditch, like flat road and then the sides just slope off

I would have honked. Then swerved side swipe is better than a head on collision

I did have that happen to me. 2 kids in the van and the woman was drunk and headed at me head on. She hit me and ran.
