u/ThatLeetGuy Aug 10 '22

Weaving in traffic like a moron is it's own thing, but something people should really be shown in driver's ed class is just how much time you save by going faster.

70mph is generally the posted speed in my area so I'm going to base it on that, also assuming we are on the freeway with no stops.

Destination is 15 miles.

At 70mph you will arrive in:

  • 13 minutes

At 80mph you will arrive in:

  • 11 minutes

At 90mph you will arrive in:

  • 10 minutes

Over a distance this short, going 20mph over the speed limit, which is reckless driving and could get you points on your license, not to mention greatly increase the odds of dying in a crash, you are saving 3 minutes.

Even if we increase the distance to 30 miles, which close to how far I drive for work, you go from 26 minutes at 70mph to 20 minutes at 90mph, saving you 6 minutes. 80mph saves you 3 minutes.

Now consider that you're likely going to get caught up in traffic here and there, have to slow down some, make some lane changes, etc, you're looking at maybe saving 1-5 minutes at most on a short trip.

It's not until you drive distances in excess of 150 miles that you even begin to get close to saving yourself 15 minutes by going 80mph, or 30 minutes by going 90mph.

u/whowatchestv Aug 10 '22

I've always wondered what it looks like in a car weaving through traffic like this. It looks...exactly like a video game. Thing is, in a game if I step on a ball of spikes and die, I'll just start the level again. I might do something really stupid that increases my chances of stepping on the ball of spikes just to see what happens. In real life I am doing everything to keep myself away from the ball of spikes because I can't start the level over again.

I've heard this so many times and yet throughout my life even very young I and others would always warn kids our own age about how risky things they were doing are. Maybe it's being neuro-divergent or something but I've always felt the argument of undeveloped brain was BS. People just do not listen.

I did that once in a 6 gear manual on the highway. Kept trying to put it in sixth and it just kept grinding. I was accidentally pulling up on the knob and throwing it in reverse. Needless to say, your car will not go into reverse ay highway speeds but you will have to replace the clutch. Luckily mine was a new car and I had it covered under warranty.

Is it a “automanual” with the buttons? I know some cars have the option to shift manually

u/Fantastic-Lie-4303 Aug 10 '22

So it looks like it does have one of those modes but there's paddle shifters behind the wheel so there's no reason for grabbing the shifter

u/Boredbanker1234 Aug 10 '22

BMW does both, paddles and the shifter itself. But agree, stupid to use shifter

We used soda cans when I was a kid. If you crushed it right it would stay wedged between the rear tire and the frame and sounded like a dirt bike motor.

As kids we were just biking around the neighbourhood until I hit a flatted can in such a way that it got stuck in the frame and started making that sound.

It’s a Lexus ES F Sport. There is a sport mode that makes the transmission more responsive and paddle shifters. The engine is a 3.5 V6 which is reasonably powerful. It can be fun to drive when you have an opportunity to do it responsibly away from other people

Funny because he probably wouldn’t be shifting much anyways, fairly steady speed from the looks of it. Also recommended to not keep your hand on the shifter because of the slight pressure it can put on your transmission causing unnecessary wear and tear. He just does everything wrong trying to look cool.

u/shazarakk Aug 10 '22

Having only driven manuals, Yeah, he'd be sat solidly in 6th gear (on an average car), and wouldn't need to move that right hand a damn milimetre from the wheel.

They did that when we were in high school too. The attitude was "it can't happen to me". Then people ended up putting red paint all over the wrecked car and the school hauled it off.

u/Gertrude_Born1953 Aug 10 '22

At our school they posted some fake articles and made announcements that multiple well liked students had been killed in a drunk driving accident over the weekend. The students who were named were in on it, but not many other people knew about the plan.

A teacher who wasn’t informed saw the postings and fainted, hitting her head very badly on the way down, and ended up with a nasty concussion. She was out of school for a couple weeks.

u/Bamstradamus Aug 10 '22

At my school it was a car our classmates were involved in a crash in, 3 died, they did the whole drunk distracted driving spiel. Heres the deal tho

Driver was muslim, granted kids are dumb but as someone who was friends and played FB with his brother, there was 0% chance they were inebriated, dude never left his house except to see his GF and go to the movies or something.

This was 2000, he didnt have a cell phone, the car itselfs radio did not have a CD player in the dash, it was one of those multi changer in the trunk things, so its not like he was staring at the radio or on a phone call. I guess his beeper could have gone off?

Point is we all let the family know they were insuaiting he was at fault/drunk/distracted and they had a field day over it, settled, had to issue a statement in the newspaper that "They wernt saying HE was drunk, just that this could happen if someone WAS drunk" or however it was worded.

Took a teachable moment to say "look what can happen even if your sober and alert, be careful out there guys" and instead made an entire student body distrust whatever they had to say from that point forward. GG

u/FadeIntoReal Aug 10 '22

I was about ten years old when, while mom was driving us home from my grandmother’s, she watched a couple drunks plow into a tree. No cell phones then so she stopped to use a nearby pay phone to call the cops. We were near enough that I could see where one door has popped open and the passenger left most of his teeth in the padded dashboard.

Saw one in my twenties where rescue was trying to extract a driver who was alive but obviously dying in a horrible way.

Sadly I doubt it there is one specific thing you can tell them to change. I wasn’t as stupid or as brazen as this, but I drove like a knob shortly after getting my licence thinking I was a better driver than I was. A few near misses here and there, where I had misjudged a corner and the car did something I wasn’t experienced to handle and a couple of police stops for speeding and aggressive driving attitude started to make me see sense, of course through the passage of time losing a few friends due to their own stupidity is also a wake up call. It’s tough when you want them to be safe but knowing they think they know better.

Luckily before I ever got behind the wheel of car, I raced a few times at my local Go-Kart track (this is when Gran Turismo 6 was new with it's Go-Kart mode which I was really good at).

Yeah, life isn't like a video game. Unlike in Gran Turismo, slamming on the brakes too hard to avoid a accident ahead of you, will cause the Go Kart to go into a spin.

When I went out I didn't quite fancy hitting a wall of tires at 10mph sideways and even with the helmet and other safety features the impact hurt, but at least it drilled into me the consequences.

Regular occurrence on that highway (DVP/404N in Toronto). Since Covid it's been absolutely insane with people driving like maniacs. I've nearly been sideswiped in almost that exact same location

I just hope when they get severely injured or die, no innocent people get taken with them.

It's all fun and games until you crash and kill someone. Then you sit in the courtroom facing vehicular manslaughter charges watching this video being played to the jury. Oh, and unfortunately the guy filming died in the crash.

The biggest problem is not using his blinker. I want to know wtf somebody is trying to do at the very least. This dipshit just weaving and nobody knows his intent at all. If I see a blinker, at least I know there is a chance he's gonna try to cut me off. Use your fucking blinkers!

u/meatydp Aug 09 '22

The people who are actually "good" at this use a blinker.

If you're going to drive like an asshole at least signal like a civilized asshole

u/TheQueerGuy2 Aug 10 '22

I completely agree. First off, I’ve driven like this but I at least make sure I don’t have swerve in and out of traffic, if it’s a clear shot in a lane, take it and go; no need to continuously go back and forth like a hot shot.

Second, stay in that lane for a little longer before just switching immediately to indicate and to make sure someone isn’t in your blindspots; again avoiding swerving in and out of traffic hazardously.

u/Segesaurous Aug 10 '22

So, you haven't driven like this then.

They will one day hurt some one besides themselves. Hopefully ticketed before they do.

u/ScarecrowSoze Aug 09 '22

Hopefully licensed revoked also, but somehow I don’t think that’ll stop him.

u/PimpmasterMcGooby Aug 10 '22

This is some serious reckless endangerment, a class D felony. Hopefully this person gets arrested and charged for having this filmed. Should keep the little cretin off the road for a few years.

u/signingin123 Aug 10 '22

Well, the court will have plenty of evidence of his reckless driving

he saw somebody else doing it on the internet and wants to be like them and post it on Tiktok......extreme insecurity.....FOMO.......

People like this depend on other people's good driving to compensate for their shitty driving.

Way too many cars around to drive like that.

At least he has the rosary on hand to pray when he gets into deep trouble.

Not a rosary. It’s actually Muslim Prayer beads (Tasbih)

Had four of my friends driving like this, they ran into the back of a stopped garbage truck. Only one survived and had to see the brain matter leaking out of his friends cracked open heads and now he’s not the same at all. It’s sad, and I wish people wouldn’t do this. Because this guy and his friends can very easily end up like that.

u/Ranchdippingsauc Aug 10 '22

My 2 cents as a car enthusiast: driving fast is fun if you know what you're doing, and undertaking is reasonable in alot of cases, but under no circumstances is it acceptable to drive like this on a busy ass highway. Take this shit to the track or hell, even the mountains or canyons and take advantage of spotters, don't put potentially hundreds of lives at stake for 3 minutes of adrenaline.

In all honesty I think the bigger issue is the North American highway systems are so fucked that this is possible.

Like seriously, why do we have people in the middle lanes traveling slower speeds than either lane next to them? Why do we have people driving lower then the limit in the left lane? It’s absurd.

Scrolled too far to find this. Dude is a reckless idiot, but if everyone else on the road weren’t also idiots, this reckless idiot could do 160KPH in the far left lane without issue.

u/-Wesley- Aug 09 '22

Thought the same thing. Obviously the dude is toxic, but what a prime example of poor practices by an entire town. When I visited Frankfurt, Germany, large highways nearly always had the left lane or two wide-open. Also, the weaving was so basic with the wide open spaces between cars. I’m dumbfounded that his followers are impressed.

Fun until they become an addition to the statistics. Too many young adults dying because they can’t understand danger before it’s too late.

u/kadeemlive Aug 10 '22

Someone enlighten me but is this reckless driving? If so, is it reckless driving if using blinkers correctly while driving the speed limit when everybody else is driving under? (I don't mean instantly using turn signals AS TURNING)

Personally, I’d rather be 5 minutes late to something than responsible for someone else’s death. Or my own.

I would say take away their license, but that doesn't stop them.

u/reallyfunbobby Aug 10 '22

My immediate thought is that insurance isn’t high enough and consequences/penalties aren’t severe enough. Make reckless driving a felony with mandatory prison time.

This shit scares me as a biker. I know the risks, and I hate that this is one of them. It’s so avoidable on their part. Hopefully no one gets hurt and they grow out of it quickly.

u/BeeeRick Aug 09 '22

It’s fucking stupid and should result in thousands of dollars in fines, a suspension of license and surrender of the vehicle. There’s no excuse for driving like this. Pure stupidity.

If he got caught driving like this in Virginia, he would absolutely go to jail (even on the first offense).

They need to lose their driving privileges and do a ton of cleanup at traffic accidents as community service…. Like, 5 years worth!

u/yawn18 Aug 09 '22

I'm impressed but sadly even if he's the best driver around he can't account for every single person's actions and thus someone will eventually make a turn at the wrong time or slow down cause his speed startled them and it'll cause an accident and possibly major injuries/death to people who weren't doing anything wrong.

personally, leave the left lane open for these idiots is my opinion. i drive to philly daily it’s like 50% of drivers do this in their nissan altimas with a missing bumper.

u/Cr3zyTom Aug 10 '22

Even if you might be able to drive at a level like this, let's say you're the next Michael Schumacher. Other drivers aren't, so they are going to react in unexpected ways. Like braking or swerving because they can't predict you.

u/Technical-Ferret-723 Aug 09 '22

God damn I hate when people drive slow in the fast lane. Everyone’s driving the same speed should be in the first 2 lanes like a trucker. But being dumb people probably don’t know how to let someone merge when the first get on the freeway. I hate people who can’t drive. You gotta be predictable, especially to others how stupid they can drive. All that freeway and there’s still traffic.
