A few students at my school decide to punch it right
wherever they go within a 500 ft radius of the school. This is obviously and incredibly stupid, but here’s an example that happened no more than 20 minutes ago:
*Girl in a Jeep Wrangler makes a left turn.*
Either she gave it too much gas, turned too sharply, or both.
Fishtail #1 pointed left: Nothing too substantial, she stayed in her lane.
Fishtail #2 pointed right: Her front wheels ran off the road slightly.
Fishtail #3: She does a full 270° from Fishtail #2, slides into the next lane, and SMACKs the curb.
This could’ve been a lot worse.
First, she was sooooooo lucky that no one was in the other lane!!
Second, the Wrangler is a really tall vehicle. She could’ve flipped over, maybe creating substantial injuries.
Then there I go rumbling past her since I saw that she was okay physically. If she was in a lower vehicle, e.g. one in which more than just the wheels would be damaged, maybe not so well. And it’s good that the Wrangler is the least expensive vehicle in America to insure...
Remember everyone, especially teenage oppos: DRIVE FRIGGIN SAFELY! You ain’t impressing no one if you mash it on public roads! Quite the opposite.
Stuff like this makes me want a dash cam. What’s the price on a decent one?
