Three mattresses were in the center lane and cars were driving around them until one driver stopped and got out of his car to move them to the side of the road.

A second driver also stopped and got out as well as a semi-trailer driver and all three of them moved the mattresses to the left shoulder. They then ran back to their cars, with one driver raising his arms in the air to celebrate.
