Why do people "rubber-neck" at fires and accidents?


I was mad last night as I drove past the scene of a house fire near my home. As an ex-police officer I was ticked! There was car after car of "onlookers" blocking the highway, stopped to watch the show. What were they hoping to see? It's no different at a road traffic accident? Move on and let the emergency services do their job already!!

    I agree, I don't think most people are looking for blood and guts, they're just curious.

    You are correct. It really does create a hazard in we are now watching our backs and the onlookers.
