“Whatever impulse it is that’s motivating some uncaring drivers — with no particular place to go — to turn roadways into speedways, this must stop,”

How the fuch does that guy know the drivers have no particular place to go??? Geeze, he should try to get the facts first before being quoted.

We could all drive more normally like this is the Beltway, 95, etc weren't so packed all the time. The only reason they are seeing a jump now is because people can actually drive at more realistic speeds.

I always get a kick out of hearing how it is 'reckless', yet the police have no problem driving even faster to pull the people over. So somehow one is reckless and the other is not...

The other day when it was pouring I had to go into the office. On 100w I realized a guy was on my tail w/o lights on. After I pass a few cars I move over and he blows by me, easily going 80+. It was really pouring. Anyway, after crossing the 97 interchange and the nice left hander I see said asshat do quite a number. First it was the drivers side of the car, then the passenger side, then a big splash and a ton of mud flying everywhere. Somehow he didnt hit another car. Reminded me of a green/blue DE coming through turn 3 at SP. Idiot.

Makes you want to own a body shop. 911’s can’t turn. They can Only go in a straight line. Lol

Karma is a Bitch.

Reminds me of the one where some guy throws a rock at a plastic window. It bounces back and splits his nose/face in two.

This is another fail that's really a win.

"Police responded after getting calls about a car pulling an "unsafe load" down the road. When they got there, they found that the car in question was a Porsche pulling a hot tub with a homemade cart.

Officers used this time to remind people about their responsibility to make sure any load they are towing, not just hot tubs, is done safely. "
