ar·cane (är-kān') adj. requiring secret or mysterious knowledge;

Posted in question by arcanedufresne on June 4, 2010

If you are driving down the highway and see a car coming the wrong way right at you, would you veer to change lanes and miss the car or stay in your lane and assume the car coming at you will swerve to avoid hitting you?

      but what if the other guy veers and you smash into each other?

    as my father always said to me: “it’s better to make errors of commission than errors of omission”

    I would press the gas and veer. Very profound question.

    I would swerve without thinking. I mean, nothing good can come of a head-on collision with a car going the same speed as you. That’s like colliding with a wall at 130 mph (assuming everyone in the equation is going the speed limit). What a terrifying scenario!

    I guess in my head, the way this is playing out is that the car driving on the wrong side of the road is in a high speed chase, so he knows he is on the wrong side of the road and is swerving to miss the oncoming traffic. Meaning if I keep going straight, he swerves around me instead of us swerving into each other.
