Re: Driving through traffic in Korea

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.

Re: Driving through traffic in Korea

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.

Looks like north jersey to me...

I tried looking at the signs, but the vid is too crappy to make out any details.
