He could have given himself a bit more slack if he pulled in a few feet closer to the island.

Well, there doesn't appear to be a car at the other side of the island, so he could've just gone right.

they actually pop pretty easy. I've seen somebody drive away and disconnected extremely easily.

The pull force on most breakaways is usually between 200 - 350 lbs...Depending on model, size, vacuum assist, etc..
