COTD: Bricks Edition

Brick stands for many things: my favorite character in Anchorman, that awesome movie with the guy who plays Robin, and a kilo of drugs. And while many high-flying politicians are working their way through some bricks of the white right now, I'm sure, there's another brick they should be keeping an eye on.


Yes, there's the BRIC, the collection of massive growing national markets. Just say it near an exec at GM or VW and they'll start sweating profusely, wondering how they can repackage a twenty-year-old Suzuki as a brand new city car. In a moment of traffic chaos in China, PhilaDLJ pointed out another reason why we at Jalopnik are always looking at the BRIC.

"BRIC is a grouping acronym that refers to the countries of Brazil, Russia, India and China, which are all deemed to be at a similar stage of newly advanced traffic fuckery." Source: Wikipedia

Now, we believe that there are just as many horrible, horrible drivers here in the US of A as there are in the rest of the world, but we still want to hear all of your stories of driving in the BRIC. Is it really as bad as we think it is?


Congratulations, Mr. PhilaDLJ, on today's COTD! I have for you a tractor to plow your way through traffic. This lovely lady with the thong will bring it to you soon.
