rubbernecker 2

Slang: Someone who enjoys the act of slowing their vehicle to like 15 miles an hour on a motorway just so they can gawk at the wreckage of a van on its roof or a car on fire.

These people are a severe pain in the arse to emergency services, and they often cause tailbacks up to several miles.

I got held up on the M25 last night going home cause of some rubbernecker staring at a crash.

Person who cranes, stains or otherwise awkwardly turns their head and stares while passing the scene of something interesting (usually morbid in nature).
This is usually seen and performed while driving past the scene of an accident, or any other incident where there are police, firemen or ambulances with lots of flashing lights.

If you turn your head to stare at something, you’re a rubbernecker. The classic example of a rubbernecker is someone who turns his head to look at a car accident while driving slowly past it (as if his neck were made of rubber).

A rubbernecker might stop and gape at someone who’s tripped and fallen, instead of offering to help. The very earliest rubberneckers were described as “someone who eavesdrops” or “someone who gazes around with undue curiosity.” The term became especially popular after cars grew in popularity, first for sightseers in cars, and later for morbidly curious drivers.
