17 People Share The Scariest Thing They've Seen Driving at Night

Strange things happen when you're driving at night. Creepy things. Your eyes start playing tricks on you, and everything starts looking like a threat. With the added bonus of random crap literally jumping out at you from nowhere like deer and loose tires, many pants have been soiled while driving down the highway at 3 AM.

    Text - warmyourbeans 30.9k points 3 days ago 2 4 I used to deliver pizza, and often had deliveries right at midnight when we closed. One time, late at night, I'm driving back to the store through a small neighborhood. Up ahead I see something. It's perfectly spherical bright/shiny... Thing, just hovering about 6 feet off the ground. Not moving at all I pull up very slowly. Still doesn't move. Still can't comprehend what I'm looking at. Just this shiny hovering orb in the road at midnight. At thi

    Text - runeofrose 9.6k points 3 days ago I was fetching someone from his work place. Had to go through some fields, and some parts of the road were dark.

As I got closer I realized it was a tail of a cow. It must've escaped from some field and was hanging around at the side of the road. The cow itself was black, t

    Text - Peppa_D 8.1k points 3 days ago 2 I was a very young woman driving home after clubbing, about 2 am through Hollywood. I was pulling up to a stop sign on Cahuenga, about 3 blocks from Hollywood Blvd., when a bunch of guys begin to casually stroll onto the crosswalk, coming from both sides. I hit the gas and ran the stop sign without even thinking. They cursed and ran after me, but those boys were ready to jack me. My instincts took over before I even realized what was happening

    Text - 3 days ago MegasXLRV 17.9k points While traveling east just outside Flagstaff, Arizona around midnight I was in the fast lane doing about 80mph.

    Text - yucatan36 3.7k points 3 days ago 3am on a lonely road and I was the passenger. An old man only wearing a bra, panties and high heals was casually walking down the road. My friend who was driving didn't believe me and went back around. Sure enough, he saw him and we were like wtf.
