I find the fact that the cop was just cruising in the left lane more disturbing than the wreck. It's there for passing people and thats it, I can't stand when I get stuck in a 4 mile long traffic jam because two old ***** driving the exact same speed (which is usually 15MPH below the speed limit) feel the need to drive beside each other. This is definitely one thing our Gov't needs to take notice of going on over here in Europe, $1000 euro fine for passing on the right, $750 euro fine for driving in the left lane and not passing someone.

Or how about we disband the DOT and privatize highways...why is more gov't BS and financial punishment always the answer?

In VA we do have a "slower traffic keep right" law...obviously it doesn't work.

I'd be down for that as well.

**** VA traffic laws, I'm not even going to elaborate on that any further, I'm sure you know exactly what I mean.

I usually scream and shake my fist at the person in front of me until they move, then as I'm passing them I point ahead of me and say something like "now was that so hard to get OUT OF MY ******* WAY!!".

The majority of people on the road know the deal, they just don't give a ****. So many accidents and traffic in general could be eliminated if people just payed attention and kept the flow of traffic going. But you get one weak ***** in the left lane that insists on going 50mph and he WONT MOVE because he thinks its HIS LANE, well, now you have people like me behind him screaming my face off, while the people behind me are passing on the right. Thus leading to traffic backing up and possibly an accident, all from one middle aged office worker in a prius that feels above all when he's behind the wheel.

Cool video though. That guy ******* launched!! lol

In America, I find it safer to not even allow the other drivers the time of day on the road. This video is my point.

Wow is all I have to say.

As far as VA laws go all I can say is 73 in a 35 in a safety corridor $500 after getting it knocked down some in court.

136 in a 65 and drove home without a ticket Helps that the state trooper that pulled me over raced me the night before in his Camaro .

I did get a reckless driving ticket (my first such ticket but certainly not last) for snagging second in a Food Lion parking lot at 16... freakin douchebag cop.

I am now working on two and a half years without so much as being pulled over though!!

He was lucky that car rotated and hit the passenger side. If he had someone with them they would be dead for sure... or if it rotated the other way.
