The synergy between a driver and their vehicle when an unnoticed object suddenly appears in their path, leading to a quick slam of the brakes and "oh shit!" expression of the driver. The vehicle itself jerks back suddenly, as if the object has startled it.

Usually occurs while making one's way around corners or in parking garages.
