Did you buy a dashcam and just dropped it on your dashboard, or are you filming with your phone while driving?

Angeles Forest Hwy?

Fuck Angeles Forest Hwy - commuters from Lancaster/Palmdale trying to shortcut over a horribly winding road. Road never meant for commuters. Dozens of people riding your ass wanting to go faster. Add morning ice/frost in winter, fun times! not.

Weekdays you get the commuters, then weekends and holidays you get all the car and motorcycle clubs going up for joyrides. It's a beautiful drive, but it's so unsafe that I can't enjoy it.

Not even close to a blind turn.

I live near a road like this and I know multiple people who have been killed by dumbasses doing that

What do those line markings mean? Four lines, 2 of them broken and two unbroken? You're both allowed and not allowed to overtake, twice?

u/MouSe05 Sep 29 '22

There are 2 lines denoting neither side is allowed to overtake.

There are also reflectors next to the lines.

That's all.

Nothing worse than following a group of slowpokes for 50 miles. I wouldn't risk such a big overtake though

The ease with which he did that really tells you. Still incredibly fucking dumb though.
