About 10 cars back from the overturned car blocking both lanes and I am watching the rubberneckers in the oncoming lanes coming to a complete stop while traffic backs up behind them as far as i can see. Assholes.
At least the view from here is pretty nice.

As long as the rubberneckers are completely stopping traffic in an otherwise un-affected lane......they should be pulled to the side and publically flogged.

This used to happen to me:
Wrecked vehicles scattered about. Ambulances, (occasionally a cool helicopter) fire trucks, tow trucks, flares and my patrol car with many flashy lights going full blast parked blocking the street.
People would pull up to me and ask: "Is there an accident up there"?

Should have told them one of two things,
We are having a first responders convention
We are showing the taxpayers all the nice shiny toys they bought for us
"Loved" gawkers though. It was always funny when things got real though. Like the night we pulled a car off a gas meter/pipe loop that crashed into a barber shop. Once they figured out that we could not shut off the gas until we got the car off of it, that we were going to spray water on it in hope of keeping sparks from igniting the gas while winching it off, then they all got back waaaaay waaaaay away! No sense of adventure I tell you.

People who write their own comedy are the best to deal with.
Aeronautics confers beauty and grandeur, combining art and science for those who devote themselves to it. . . . The aeronaut, free in space, sailing in the infinite, loses himself in the immense undulations of nature. He climbs, he rises, he soars, he reigns, he hurtles the proud vault of the azure sky. — Georges Besançon

Even more fucked up is the second accident caused by dimbulbs gawking at the first accident.

Rubbernecking delays. Hate them.
Hard to think of anything more purely a pointless waste of other people's time than rubbernecking.
my go to was always “submarine surfaced in the wrong place” or “train derailed” where there are no tracks.
