DailyDirt: Dangerous Driving

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

America's car culture has influenced a wide range of our daily lives -- from creating suburban sprawl to making cars a status symbol that many aspire to own. However, gas-guzzling vehicles don't quite have the same appeal as they used to, and autonomous vehicles may eventually suck all the fun out of driving on public roads. Before robots take over personal transportation, here are just a few examples of drivers pushing the limits of safety and driving crazy on regular city streets. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post via StumbleUpon.

    no way an EV will be faster in a Canonball Run...

    Maybe a hybrid car has a chance to beat the record, but I doubt there are batteries big enough to drive a car almost 3000 w/o recharging. And a recharge would take HOURS.
