Story Time

By expectnothing on in News

One day on the 405 in my Honda Civic Si, I was going along, when everyone ahead of me suddenly stopped. Then it was a scene was straight out of a Michael Bay movie. I jerked the car to the left shoulder and went by. As the cars ahead of me smashed into each other, a bumper went flying up in the air and over the cars and it woulda hit me right in the face but because I went left, I dodge it. Now that woulda been one awesome dash cam. Too bad I didn’t have one.


Always have an escape route

By expectnothing on in Videos

10+ years ago. As I was going along, the truck in front of me stopped suddenly with plenty of room ahead of him. He shouldn’t have braked so severely. I perhaps could have avoided it by going slower but his severe braking was unexpected. When I go by him on the right you see there was plenty of space ahead of him too.

The video was supposed to show that going down the very right lane often is the fastest in rush hour, but it ended up showing you need to always have a way to escape.

There’s a new Jamiroquai song out. It’s weird, which is typical, but can it pass the most important test? We’re speaking, of course, of the Will This Jamiroquai Song Make Me Subconsciously Accelerate To Speeds Exceeding 200 Miles Per Hour In My Lamborghini test.


Tow Truck Driver Has No Fucks Left Leaving Tesla Parking Lot

By expectnothing on in News

In what I can only liken to some sort of a dystopian horror scenario for cars, one of the best accounts on Instagram posted a video of a tow truck driver having no qualms whatsoever about dragging a helpless Mercedes out of the Tesla Fremont parking lot at an, um, uncomfortable angle.

U-Turn Gone Wrong

By expectnothing on in Tips, Videos

When you make a U-Turn, make sure the person in the right lane doesn’t turn right at that exact same moment as you see here. Otherwise you’ll slam into each other. Make sure that driver sees you or be ready to stop. If you’re the one turning right, make sure the person is really turning right and not doing a U-Turn before making your right turn. This happens a lot from either point of view, just be ready to give the person doing a U-Turn the right of way.

california-drivers-suck.com – Tips – When you drive up to an intersection in the very right lane, make sure you pull to the left of the lane as much as you can to let other cars by on the right side.


I agree

      Why?
      Hey, I'm stuck in CA driving with these idiots all the time. But you can't complain if you're from TX about CA drivers, although it is the only TX place I have been, Houston drivers are just as bad.

      Parker must be Asian...."they drives suck"?

      Why?
      WHY? Because 90% of them are MEXICANS. Majority of them dont have a license and carry fake id. Its their culture thats how they drive.
    • Ophelia on:
      Why?
      The way I see it, at least in Los Angeles (and San Diego--the other counties of California I've been in have it far less pronounced than these two), a lot of the problems seen on the roads can be attributed to a culture that places great value on speed. Essentially, people in L.A and S.D. are trained from an early age to have their gratification instant, and thus they never learn patience. This is why drivers will speed up to block you when you want to change lanes, this is why tailgating is so rampant, this is why they rarely ever come to a complete stop at stop signs, and this is why there's so much lane-weaving: These are drivers who want to go fast and see slowing down or stopping as an admission of inferiority. For the record, people blocking to stop me when I'm changing lanes is an extremely common occurrence that I figured out a good way to ensure you can get into the lane you need fairly quickly: As long as the traffic is not too congested, just slow down by about 5 miles per hour and get in behind them. The driver trying to block you is doing so either because they're not paying attention, or they cannot stand the thought of someone coming over in front of them. In both cases, they will gladly let you in behind them. (Congestion creates a problem because it means there will be someone else behind them who will think the same thing, and the person behind them likewise, and so forth.) It is an animal instict at work. For most creatures, seeing another creature with their back turned to them indicates the back-turned creature has superior authority. Likewise, a creature taking up a space behind another creature is an act of submission. For some reason, Californian drivers fall to these animal instincts and treat their cars as extensions of themselves. They don't want you getting into their lane in front of them because, subconsciously, they interpret it as you asserting authority over them, but they'll let you in behind them because they see it as you acknowledging their superiority. That's what I think.

      Why?
      That's exactly it. It's the attitude of it's ME me me and the whole world doesn't exist besides me.
    • expectnothing on:
      Why?
      California people tailgate because there's so many damn people, if you didn't, the line of cars would stretch from MEXICO to Oregon. They added 800,000 illegal alien drivers the other year. So that's why. As long as they are not crazy close which I define as you can't even see their headliights behind you. Otherwise, that's how close people drive in RUSH hour. Otherwise, in normal conditions, they're just tailgating and being aholes if it's not rush hour.

      Why?
      Why do Los Angeles driver tailgate, I was coming home on the 60 fwy west bound traffic was almost at a stop and this female person in a infinite climb on my bumper so close I could not see her front plate in my rear view camera I got over then she cut me off and flip me off this was a accident waiting to happen and she ended up on the same off ramp on the 10 fwy west. crazy
    • John Carter on:
      Why?
      The CORE reason that California drivers have become (Yes! They were once exemplary drivers!) the worst dang drivers in the country; ATTTITUDE! Many people in California have become extremely selfish, arrogant, rude, and just plain INCONSIDERATE. And it shows clearly in the way they drive. It is a "Me, me, me" attitude that explains why they tailgate and drive as fast as their vehicle will go, with no regard to the safety of themselves or others; they steal the legal right-of-way of as many other drivers that they can; and they will never lower their high-beams, no matter whom they blind! I was born and raised in California, and I used to love it. Now I cannot wait to leave!
    • John Carter on:
      Why?
      It is the result of the pervasive entitlement attitude that has swept over California (I too am a native)! This selfish and inconsiderate attitude reflects clearly in the driving habits of so many people in California.
    • John Carter on:
      Why?
      You are absolutely correct! I live here (in Calif) and I completely agree and sympathize with you!

  • About

    I’ve driven in California since 1991. I’ve spent many trips running up and down the state as well as driving in many other states. After all of this driving, I became fed up with how bad California drivers on. I wanted to point out what they do to either help change a few drivers or at least entertain the rest of the world with Californian’s horrible driving.

    I’m located in Orange County in a couple of the richest areas. I see every type of car that is out there in this area. It’s like a car show. Going to a car show isn’t exciting anymore because you see most of the cars driving around anyway. I also work at a place where people buy all the different types of cars. We have Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Lotus, etc. So you can even see a lot of the cars in the work parking lot.
