Does a video show a "terrible gas driver"? No, that's not true: The truck shown in the video is not a gas truck, it is a truck from a company that cleans sewers. And there's nothing shown in the video to indicate that the driver is anything less than careful.
Terrible Gas Driver
This happened in Europe, in February this year.
This is what the post looked like on Facebook on May 13, 2021:

Captions in the three-minute video warn that a driver has a broken part on the truck that threatens the safety of the people in the car filming as they follow behind. Some of the captions claim:
Terrible gass worker
This is a KNO3 tank...
And this is a victim
This car driver is about to get a shock!
He carries gas nearby KN03 tank And something unexpected will happen
You will notice this broken part ... but the car driver didn't see the demage
There is no damage in the video and nothing happens or explodes as one might expect from a video talking about a terrible gas driver.
Let's break down what's wrong with the captions in the video:
This is not a gas truck. The name "Cappellotto" appears on the side of the truck. This is an Italian company that makes specialized cleaning trucks.
The trucks are used for cleaning sewers, not transporting gasoline. Assainipieces Services has photographs of the trucks using the high-power vacuum aspiration to remove heavy materials in hard to reach places.
The video was filmed in Serbia. There is a Serbian flag near the McDonald's, the license plates match Serbian license plates and EKO gas stations and IDEA supermarkets are prevalent in Serbia.
Serbian company Beotechnology rents and sells trucks like the one in the video.
