Redneck driving in the US of A

This video is un-be-le-iva-ble he even has his kids in the truck! I sincerely hope, from the bottom of my heart, that after the camera stops recording this piece of shit redneck got such a beating that the only thing he can drive is a motorized wheelchair...

Re: Redneck driving in the US of A

original video:



A friend sent me the video yesterday, and I coulnd't freaking believe it.

The driver's behaviour makes ZERO sense. I mean there's no reason to drive on the opposite lane, and then he stops and argues "I've got kids in my mothering truck" and that he doesn't care?



Guy with the black helmet is my personal hero though. I watched that part like 15 times and I was laughing so hard

Remember bikers, full-face helmet and good gloves can go a long way in a fistfight with the terminally stupid


And speaking of stupid, I had a close one yesterday morning. A Livit van was merging on 3 from the Otelfingen exit towards Bern and changed from the right to the middle lane without checking mirrors or indicating. I braked hard, and I only just missed it. I have bright blue bike, it's impossible they missed me. I accelerated and went to the left lane some seconds later and went all "Greek guy talking with his hands and showing you you're a wanker" crazy, and a young woman driving was completely shocked. She didn't even realise she almost killed someone...

I got to work shaking like a leaf, it being my first close call on the motorbike and all. And then I sent a nice email to livit with the plates, time and place, and told them that if their employees can't drive safely they can take the motherf***ing train.

Sorry for the offtopic, had to vent

So you went full Greek, huh? That made me laugh. And glad you are OK. For those who ride, I think most of us have been there before - yelling through the helmet, some explicit gestures, adrenaline up, etc. But you can't fix stupid.


As for the vid - I get the feeling this is just the latest in a long standing feud between some white trash. Welcome to KY LiB!

Re: Redneck driving in the US of A

in fairness, there seems to have been something the motorcycles did before the video starts to kick things off. still, every person appearing in the video is no doubt swimming in the shallow end of the gene pool.

my favorite part of the video is the kids sitting illegally in the pickup truck (no seat belts or child seats), not to mention the tank of gas sitting unprotected and unsecured in the bed of the pickup. classic.

It could have gone terribly the other way if the red neck anticipated the move and grabbed the black helmet at the mouth piece
