hello, i just wanted to share a video clip from korea
i am the driver and everything is under full control with no harm done to anyone
this kind of driving is quite common in asia and everyone minds their own
i was thinking perhaps this kind of deviant way of the culture could be interesting to those that live in the USA
when cities in asia get too crowded and highways become parking lots, many ppl tend to drive this way and cops dont mind either

Are you crazy :screwy: Seriously though your going to kill someone driving like that. Who cares if the cops allow it. If it was ok to shot your self would you :shakehead

Welcome to AF.

Here in U.S. it's called weaving in and out of traffic, or some may call it cutting people off (some people get pissed if you cut them off)... And it's pretty stupid and dangerous, IMO.

I got a question for you, what car are you driving, it sounds pretty nice and catchy...

...i couldnt stand to watch the whole thing...the music was too anoying...

As for the driving... in the bit i watched yo ucut off 10 vehicles by my count, including 3 busses. Nearly rearended 3 cars, and passed on a one lane oncoming ramp and merged into an oncoming ramp to get around a car....
Frankly this sort of driving isnt "cool" in any way. I remember a video of some BMW tryign to keep up with a superbly modded Audi on russian highway and both where cutting off semi's and dump trucks...

ive said ir before ill say it agian.

No matter how slick you are or you think you are, not everyone on the road is that slick or is in a vehicle able to handle such situations with ease.

I have a feeling a cup of Chlorine is getting ready to be poured into your gene pool.

I think you're giving Mike Tyson a little too much credit there.

Don't you guys have empty roads on which you can pull out the dumbness? You will trash your car and possibly end your life if you continue to behave like this.

Why does your profile say you are from Jersey? The car you are driving does sound like an M3 though.

The car sounds nice and all but dude that is in NO WAY cool, I mean obviously when you're driving the car it feels alot safer but no, just aint cool putting yourself and whoever is holding the camera's life in danger.

But yeah we can do that in the US too, just got to watch out for cops, but we got crappy techno/house music here as well and stronger cars than Hyundais..

If Hyundai made cars that sounded and performed like that.

I'd be driving one.

I agree, that was no hyundai, that sounded like something with 8 cylinders...crazy ass shit for sure, I was tense just watching it.

Given the fact that about 1/2 those cars in the video looked to be American, something causes me to doubt that this is "Korean".

and whoever thinks this public death-defying multiple-life-risking shit is cool, is an immature tool.

I thought it was pretty cool, but it's still dangerous. The problem is that you don't know what the other person is going to do. At least here in the US we have alot of unpredictable drivers who pull out in front of you, even if you're going like 30 mph faster than they are.

i just watched it... honestly i wouldnt do it, but thats nothing. youd know what i mean if youve ever been to sao paulo Brazil.we're talkin 16 million people in that city and the traffic is so insane. ive never seen anything like it. cars dont even use lanes there. its like 4 wide on a two lane road and shit. with motorcycles constantly zooming by in between cars. crazy

Well first and foremost BS on you being the driver.

Secondly that looks a lot like how I used to drive when I was late for work and I hadn't accumulated 10 points on my license.

Lastly, if that's so common there, where's all the other cars that are doing it...shouldn't they be passing you at some point. But refering to statement 1, you can't answer.

I dont think this is in the US. Look at the plates when he comes to a stop light. They dont look US.
