i live in NY, work in NYC and play in NYC. so i've done a lot of driving in and around the city. im really surprised this guy was able to get that
quick of a run without getting jammed up anywhere. i actually hate people that drive like this here because it just puts everyone at risk that he's
passing. all it takes is the smallest mistake with that asshole and someone is losing there life because he wanted to get all "fast and furious" and
be all cool.
i mean, i wouldn't say that EVERYONE in NYC drives a millions miles an hour and if you drive the speed limit you're getting run off the road. but,
driving is different in different parts of the city.
driving in downtown or midtown is a mess. the density of people and cars makes it so you cant get more than a couple blocks at a time so there's no
opportunity to go a million miles per hour. plus you never know whose going to decide to jump off the sidewalk and decide to cross the street or some
other unpredictable thing so you can't be hauling ass like that in the actual city.
that being said driving in brooklyn or queens is different. people have no patience and no tolerance for people who don't know what their doing or
people who don't know how to park their car. everyone is always rushing, that much is true.
as for the highways around the city, you better be good at merging. because people don't want to let you over and don't want to slow down to let you
in. but much like anywhere else there's always that person driving 45mph in the right lane, just either scared or old or stoned or god knows what
taking their sweet as time and actually creating traffic. but, what gets me crazy is the lack of people who use their signals or who just decide to
pull some crazy maneuver out of nowhere....you always need to be one your toes and drive defensively.
