Thankfully, there are still good driving roads that exist in this trash world of ours. They are one of the last places where we can go and enjoy our cars without signing up for a track day. But because they are public roads, safety is key. Especially on the Tail of the Dragon.
Shit got extremely real for 19-year-old Tahj Turnley after he nearly lost it into a crowd leaving the Nashville Cars and Coffee last month. He is now facing a felony charge for reckless endangerment with a deadly weapon.
Unless the circumstances absolutely call for it, there is no reason to run a red light. Period. You are not only putting yourself and everyone in your car at risk, you are also endangering other drivers.
They say that ignorance is bliss, and that statement has never been truer when it’s concerned me and owning a car. I never knew what a slave I was to it until now, and how much it kept me from doing important things like meetings and writing thinkpieces.
Some drama arose on Car Internet today, as it often does. And today that involved a disgustingly racist tirade apparently sent from the official Instagram account of a noted tuner wheel company to a man who works with the company founder’s girlfriend. Naturally, the backlash is epic, and many of the company’s accounts…
A 19-year-old Texas A&M student was arrested after rear-ending a stopped police car while trying to take a topless selfie.
Danny Lin, 25, a reckless driver who killed a pedestrian while speeding through Manhattan’s Lower East Side in 2014, has been sentenced to up to five years in prison. Ironically, he also has what sounds like a truly terrible and toolish arm tattoo with a Paul Walker quote that reads, “If one day speed kills me do not…
Earlier this year, police tracked down and jailed the driver of a wannabe-gymkhana Beetle tearing up the streets of San Diego. It was not difficult for them, as the city attorney now notes, because the driver put the whole thing up as a viral video. “It gave us everything.”
“Don’t park like an asshole.” Yea, well, dragging a parked car across a parking lot when it’s not in neutral is also being an asshole. In this video, anarchy prevails.
You’d think that something as important as shutting a car door after you get out of it would be instinctual by this point—fancy butterfly doors or not. Even if you’re not in the driver’s seat.
Get to the airport. If you’re smart, you’d have printed your boarding passes at home. If you’re me, you queue up at the desk to check in, aware of the long lines and the long faces of the travelers around you. Get your bag on the belt, shuffle off to get through security. Remove your shoes and your dignity. X-ray. Put…
“Take it down before I get in trouble,” 23-year-old Darran Anderson reportedly commented on a video of him in his BMW cutting through traffic on New York’s Long Island Expressway. That didn’t really work out for him.
Here’s a surefire reminder that saving a parking space is a surefire way to start drama.
Sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference between someone with big balls and someone with a small brain. Watching a Ferrari F12 bust a wheel fording a stream in the Himalayas is one such moment.
And his buddies snitched on him, too.
We do not support tailgating, and we do not support brake checking someone when they’re tailgating you. This, right here, is why.
Unsurprisingly, he doesn’t seem to give a shit.
Look, I’m a fan of wheelies as much as the next guy. Hell, I even went to a wheelie school last week so I could write about it and tell you how to be wheelie awesome. But if we want people to stop hating us motorcyclists, we need to knock this shit off.
