      I really don’t have much sympathy for someone that does that.

          I am sure he also did not use his turn signals when entering the shoulder… The manners of some drivers

                      It's great to see how he only pressed the brake once the car was already hitting the curb. I will never understand how you can spend that much money on a car but never spend a dime on actually learning to drive (he could have clearly deescalated the situation by jumping on the break once the tires squeak while it was heading in the wrong direction)

                        WOW. Didn't look like he was going all that fast. Distracted driving?

                          He was obviously hoping to hit 88 miles per hour before hitting the bank. And equally obviously, the flux capacitor was low on Plutonium. --Bob

                            For those who didn't read the article, the driver was charged with DUI and his BAC was .3 which is almost 4 times the legal limit here in Florida.
