A reckless driver almost hit my car...


I was lucky he didn't hit me. However, he did crash into a few other cars behind me

And I thought a couple of cars I saw this afternoon were a bit reckless. That section of 405 seems to bring out some nutting driving, especially ones who think they can hop from carpool to 73 ramp in a matter of 1/4 miles (that's 5 lanes!) during rush hour...

I watched it several times and still cant quite figure out

A: how it happened. Should have been easy to not go flying across 4 other lanes and spin out.

B: how they missed that camry

Glad you didn't get hit and caught up in all the red tape that would have come down on that!

Turn that video over to the cops so that asshat can't squirm out of whatever charges they brought against him/her. Glad they missed you.

He had more than enough room and time to get over without being an asshat. I, like others, don't get how he lost it though.

Good defensive driving on the Camry driver's part though

So that's what it feels like to be in a civilian car when matrix people are doing their thing.

Definitely turn that over to the cops. Speeding, crossing x2 double yellow lines, what in the hell was he doing. Unless a medical emergency caused that sort of behavior, that SOB shouldn't have a license for three years.
