Randomly looking I found this shot.
Does this guy scare you as much as me?
I wish him well but it seems incredibly dicey to do.

Would've loved to see the look on his face if a dog ran out onto the road

That white "brick" is a self-destruct system in case of emergency. The trigger for it is coupled to the rubber underwear this guy must be wearing.
Not that this is inherently dangerous, just somewhat surprising that someone "chose" to make a shot this way.
Notice there is no protective headgear. I suggest a paper bag.

Assuming that the flat form is strong for the whole weight.
He didn't wear a proper protective cloth.
The knee pads doesn't work in this case.
It seems like he following a moving car.
Look at the road surface!
Without a face shield.... man oh man!
What if the rear wheels of the being chased car shoot back some small rocks?
And... the sand on both sides of the road!
and... the flying bugs!!
Notice that, he stood in front and partially blocking the driver view.
Then while chasing the driver might go: "Hey, you, you blocking my view..."
then the driver shifted left and right to clear his view while driving and yelling.... then to some instance he didn't notice that he's too close to the being chased car.... FADE TO BLACK.

I've done some kind of crazy stuff in my day but that one is just stupid.

This took some planning, which is even scarier.
Look, he has turned his hat backwards so that it doesn't blow off in the wind.
(He expects to go that fast, yikes!)
He expects to need the hat later too.
This is the worst thing I've seen since one guy talked about riding on the strut of a helicopter (rig and all) and expecting it to gently sit him down and he would step off and continue the shot. Everyone blanched at that description too. (Don't do it anyone, monumental bad idea.)
I do love the comments, very funny all.

just one question, will the knee pads really help in a head on collision? also, what's the white brick taped under his lower electronics? c4 maybe? just wondering.
Of course those knee pads are gonna help. In case you didn't see (you must look closely) he has lisagav applied to them. In the event of a collision he will fly off and slide on his knee pads to safety, very smart on his account. And you thought lisagav was only for gimbals!
