Before the big guns get here, I’m given a document — a Z06 manifesto, of sorts — to prime me on the basics. Some of the details I have to read twice. Supercharger? 625 horsepower? Optional eight-speed auto?? Before I finish scanning the second page, it’s showtime.

This is one of those fun stories where we could have gotten by without writing a single sentence, just by running the video and the headline. That title really does say everything that needs to be said – this is a video – a highly stylized, beautifully filmed video – from McLaren of its attempt at breaking the seven-minute barrier at the Nürburgring Nordschleife with its new P1 hybrid hyper car.

      Why?
      To those who have know idea how to adhere to the ethics of the road, May you learn the hard way....tickets should help one learn. Lane one jockeys need to understand how to get out of the way. Turn signals exist for a reason. There is always someone behind you. Get off the phone, stop texting and try to enjoy the drive. If you don't. Get a job close to where you live. Or find a place to live close to where you work. Use turn signals when you leave a paralleled parking spot. Look before you merge. And don't accelerate when someone else is trying to switch lanes. Please try to be better behind the wheel. Or at the least adequate.

      What to do when Pulled Over by a Cop
      I dont think this all details are gone work in the same way all the time, the best advice to get through this type of situation is being calm to face it.

      Headlights
      Re: Flash pass. Nobody has to move out of a lane unless he or she is going really a lot under the speed limit. Fast lane included. If you're unhappy it's your job to have the guts to pass, not to flash your lights and say get out of my way! If you're not from CA, don't come back!
    • gabriel on:
      Why?
      It's not all California though: I grew up in the Inland Empire where even though people are poorer they actually have some common sense. It wasn't until I moved to orange county where I realize the true meaning of idiots (especially jumping into a lane while you're flying at full speed). I attribute it to the following: Asians Mexicans Orange County as rich as it is, it's people lack intelligence and especially common sense, they're a bunch of freaking robots out here. I have never met dumber people in my life till I moved out to orange county.
    • I_Want_Outta_CA on:
      Why?
      California has a few things going for it; but gawddamn, it sucks to be a driver in this state! Especially if you’re one of those responsible drivers who actually have automobile insurance. I’m a transplant from New England and have been living in CA for over 5 years. Got into my first fender-bender a couple of days ago. I was stopped at a major intersection waiting for traffic to pass so I could turn right. As I was creeping up a little bit to get a better view of the oncoming traffic from the left, BAM!, we get rear-ended. I don’t care how much experience you have with accidents (hopefully, not many) but getting hit unexpectedly by another vehicle will rattle you. But for some reason I still had the sense to think the following and this was my mindset at the time: Wife, who was the passenger at the time, was ok – Yes. Next, should I stop and get out of the vehicle to check the damage and that the other driver is ok – No (because it was at an intersection with train tracks running parallel to the main street I was turning into – the dude that hit me was still on top of them). Determine the safest place possible to pull over and exchange information – absolutely no break-down lane on the busy street I was turning on to, with the nearest parking lot about 1000 feet on the right. So I determined the best alternative was to use the very next turning lane about 100 feet on the left to get across the street into the nearest lot, all while gesturing to other guy to follow me. BIG F-ing mistake. As I was pulling into the plaza, my wife kept an eye on the dude and says to go quick because he’s making a run for it – he’s making a u-turn! So we follow him to the next parking lot he turned into which was apparently where he worked (Grand American Tires) and we found him out in back of the building, obviously checking the front of his early model white Camry. So we park next to him and told him “Hey, you hit us at the intersection back there. Why did you run?” In broken, eastern European English, he says “Wha? Are you sure it was me??” “Look! I got no damage! What are you talking about?!” His front bumper did not have any obvious paint from our rear bumper, if any residual paint was there it was scuffed off with his sleeve; but our bumper was substantially pushed in with some traces of white paint, can hardly close the trunk. He essentially denied he did anything and his only argument was the fact that “if” indeed he was at fault and hit us, then why didn’t I pull over?! Really? The fact that I did not pull over right away automatically absolves you of any wrongdoing? The short and long of it, Ivan refused to give me his information. I called the cops, twice (911 and local station); but dispatchers kept telling me that unless there is an injured party, they are not required to send anyone out and that they can’t resolve disputes of this nature. We were so pissed. Now it’s our word against his. We were obviously not getting anywhere with this asshole and all I could manage was to take a picture of his car and its license plate and let my insurance company handle the situation (which I called my insurance company not 20 minutes after the whole ordeal). You are absolutely screwed here in CA if you get into an accident and the other party refuses to cooperate. They can just deny, deny, deny. Who wants to get into the hassle of going to small claims court just to get back at them? Now if my claims adjuster/agent determines it’s my word against his, then I’m screwed and stuck with paying my $500 deductible. Take a couple of hardknock lessons from me. 1.) Invest in one of those vehicle cams that record everything while you are moving. 2.) if 1 above isn’t possible, in an event of an accident, pull over immediately no matter what/where – let folks get hit by Amtrak trains, block traffic and let the “busy” police direct it or 3.) if you have some time to spare, in an event of an accident, park the car immediately, stop, drop and roll in writhing pain – create a fucking scene until the police and ambulance get there. In situations 2 & 3 above you’ll probably have a better chance at getting the offending party’s information. God, it’s just not worth the effort to try and be a half-decent person these days. I can’t wait for the next solicitor to knock at my front door today so I can just literally tell them to get the Hell off my property and to go FUCK yourselves/OFF.

      I've been reading this blog for the great while. Keep up the amazing job you are doing here.

  • 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.
