Look, I hate slow drivers in the left lane as much as any man, but to do something that could potentially end up causing a wreck and killing people is beyond being idiotic.

re: cutting through parking lots to avoid lights/sign/traffic


One of the most douche bag moves out there.

I only see it as an acceptable option in emergencies like the guy above taking his daughter to the ER.

But, if city planners and street designers were worth a shite they wouldn't design fricked up intersections with no turn lanes or bottle necks so that traffic would flow better. But after growing up in Baton Rouge and then living in Houston for 14 years I'm convinced that traffic engineers and city planners are all mentally retarded due to a raging case of chronic syphillis or other third world dark ages diseases.

I hope the next person you "bump" for going too slow in the left lane pulls you from your car and beats you to the point your left unable to ever drive again. You're a worthless, stupid piece of shite.

Did you not see what he posted? The guy claims that he "bumps" people's bumper who he deems are going too slow in the left hand lane. That's insane and could get god knows how many people killed or maimed in a multi-car pile up. What if the car in the right hand lane next to the one he "bumps" is your wife and kids? frick that. Any worthless piece of shite willing to totally disregard the safety of others just so he can save a few seconds of time has no business being in society.

Sounds like somebody needs to GTFO of the left lane

That's a bit of a stretch.

I love the OT. You read shite like this then you'll see people treat a dog like a human or act horrified at the thought of spanking a kid.

People are awesome

I agree with you 100%. But this is something different. This guy is out there running into cars in Atlanta traffic. That's beyond stupid to the point of criminal negligence.

When I read it assumed it was once they stopped are at really low speeds. You do that at 30 there's no way you won't wreck. So if that's the case then he's lying.

Besides, if he bumped me at all he'd be paying for some paint, or getting a hit and run if he didn't stop, so he's lying.

I will ride the shite out of someone's bumper if they go slower than the speed limit in the fast lane though.

Yes. I do it. Like a BOSS

Only when I'm late or in a hurry though.

For the sake of others out on the road I hope he is a liar. And it does piss me off when someone is just plodding along in the left hand lane. But even then, it's not worth risking a wreck.

I know where I normally commute (into North B'ham from Oneonta) the traffic is usually bumper to bumper in both lanes and generally moves at anywhere from 50 mph to 65 mph as a general rule once you get close to B'ham. Before that it's usually pretty open but still heavy. It's a 4 lane divided highway the entire 32 mile commute. I'm usually on my motorcycle so 99% of the time I'm in the right hand lane just going with the flow of traffic trying to give myself a cushion between myself and the car in front of me. But the thing is that in that type of traffic if there is someone riding the shite out of someone's bumper and the car in front suddenly slows down there is a good chance of a wreck that very well may take out not only those two cars but a lot of the other cars around them.

I think it was about two or three weeks before this past Christmas that a wreck happened almost directly in front of my office for that every reason. Someone was in the left lane and the car behind them was on their ass. The car in front went to turn and the car behind them slammed on their brakes but were too close to avoid a wreck. The final result was 3 cars and a service truck in a big pile up. I know one person was killed on the scene and another was transported with life threatening injuries. I don't know if they made it or not.

I used to think it was something crappy people did. But lately traffic is so horrendous that I partake, usually at the same places each time. When I do it it is to save myself many light cycles.

Get the sand out of your vagina. It was a love tap. Learn traffic laws and move to the right lane so faster traffic can pass. And please be sure to use your signal. After driving in ATL traffic for 30 yrs I aint gonna wreck anybody or spin someone out. I'm a skilled driver.

I do it occasionally. I have never seen someone ticketed for this even though I know it's illegal.

I don't do it unless I have to be somewhere and I'm running late.

I always look for cops when I do, planning to pull into a parking space if I see one.

You can be ticketed if an LEO sees you do this.

Its entertaining most of the time, watching people get caught.

IIRC as long as you make a COMPLETE, LEGAL stop before exiting the lot it is legal. As to this...

For you and the rest of you bumper-riding clods, I hope you keep your brakes in good working order and your insurance paid up because somebody is gonna brake-check the frick out of you one day and claim that they were avoiding an object in the roadway. Make sure you post about that here on the OT too so that we can confirm your level of fricktardedness, you internet badasses. Or, it being the ATL, somebody will probably light your arse up.

Irony...rich and fulfilling.

I dont know if it was posted or not by this point, but I'm almost 100% it is not illegal in Louisiana, some states it would be, but not LA unless the property you are cutting through is public property.

Still a douche bag thing to do though.

I avoid it, but I will admit, I have done it once and got away. That was the only time.

cutting through parking lots to avoid lights/sign/trafficDon't know if yall are familiar with thibodaux, but if your coming down 308 and wanna take a left on Jackson. You know its nearly impossible to make that left turn during rush hour. I always cut through that huddle house on the right corner and just head through the intersection from the north side of Jackson. 
I do that. It's retarded, they need to add a turn signal.
