Ah. I didn't actually watch the video. I won't let it happen again.* [hangs head in shame]

*(Actually, I probably will.)

the most stupid thing in the video is the white car from the opposite direction stopping in the middle lane.
dafaq, traffic is dense. there are people needing help, but you are definitely not the one supposed to give them a hand beside hundred other cars that could stop in the safe way!

*This is a state-level thing, but many states have passed such laws in the last few years.
Instead of you know, police not dancing in the middle of the highway to steal some money, no, instead they can keep dancing but we need to move out the way

I've seen several times on 401 (ok, eastern Ont) these guys just walking across, bloody hell

Most of us celebrates Christmas in following days. I live in country when we do the most essential celebrations (dinner and gifts) today. In following days, I will be out of internet visiting and celebrating with my family.

This is the best (and last) opportunity to wish you very merry Christmas. I like this forum and despite some tiny argument exchanges, I think we are quite a good bunch of people. Enjoy following days with your families.

Who's in the brig? You or Road_UK? (Either way, it was probably bound to happen. )

EDIT: Time to work seriously on inflating my post count.

AFTERTHOUGHT: Damn. Should have made that a new post.
