A driver shows how to enter traffic and accelerate properly.
The video is private.
Quoted for truth. That’s how you merge and turn into traffice. Perfect example.
I agree with Damon. The driver quickly and smoothly entered the flow of traffic. If the car was invisible, no one would have been wiser.
The driver started entering the roadway well over a hundred yards in front of Brent. Brent did not have a chance to cut him off. If it would have been at interstate speeds Brent would have been able to cut him off. It took Brent over 5 seconds to reach the point of where they guy entered the road. If the guy had waited 2 more seconds before entering the highway then that would have given Brent a chance to stand on his horn and scare the hell out of the guy.
Obviously your trolling doesn’t get better with practice.
Simply put, this guy drove properly, unlike you who pulls out with the intent of making other people take evasive action because of you.
Simply put millions of drivers drive properly every day. It is you that has the problem. If you call taking your foot off the gas for one second as your definition of having to take evasive actions and gets you furious then you need to go see a shrink. If you have to take evasive actions because you are speeding or tailgating or driving aggressivly beyond the norm then you can blame yourself.
This is boring. Your trolling is lame, old, and tired. At least give me a spring board to write on something new. If you can’t do that, you’re absolutely worthless here.
Good drivers strive to have no effect on others. Bad drivers don’t care about their effect on others. Clovers demand others cater to them.
I do like your “beyond the norm” qualifier. I know it’s so you don’t have to justify ten over clovers and the like. You don’t want to know what real tailgating around here looks like. If you believe your own BS your head might asplode.
Brent, your driving has nothing to do with speeding. Speeding alone is nothing compared to what you do. I have absolutly no problem wih people that drive 30 mph over the limit if there are no other cars around. Your major problem is the way you drive around other cars. You act like a jerk as some drivers call you. You are self centerd and everyone has to look out for you because no matter what you do you say you have the right of way. You never move over when there is an on ramp because you say F–ck them. They need to look out for Brent. You can not be bothered. You are self centered and it is their responsibilty to look out for tailgators and speeders and agressive drivers that have no legal way or ethical reason for being where you are at the time.
You got something new Clover? nope. same old made up crap. It is a wonderful projection of your attitudes however.
Who else, but someone who says “Fuck them” pulls out into 45mph traffic at 15mph and refuses to accelerate? Who, but someone who says “fuck them” changes lanes without looking or demands other people stand on the brakes for them? And who else but someone who says “fuck them” defends all this and more?
Everything you create in these fabrications that you place on me Clover comes out of your own mind. It’s a reflection of your nature. It’s where you get all of this from. Your own frame of mind. You are lazy, self-centered, rude, and worse. You troll when you are behind the wheel intentionally doing things you feel will anger other drivers. You have no evidence of anger on my part. None. Yet you insist you know my emotional state. Why? Because you’re a troll on the road too. You do these things to anger others and I’ll guess sometimes it works. Get over yourself troll and learn driving is no place for your sort of behavior.
Brent you say I make things up? The videos you have posted are my truth. Evey other word that comes from you talks about drivers that pull out in front of you driving 15 mph and will not accellerate. If this happened so often you would have dozens of videos of this. YOu have none that I have seen. If someone pulls out in front of you and only drives the speed limit and you get furious about that then you should not be driving.
What you post isn’t in the videos. You make up what I am feeling and more out of your own feelings. That’s a reason why you are a clover, Clover.
Here’s the guy you defended who did exactly what you claim there is no video of.
And this guy:
See the video at the top of this page? That guy only did the speed limit. I never caught up to him. Wonder how that is, eh lying little troll?
Thank you very much for posting that video. That is a very good video of your poor driving. The driver for one was doing well over 15 mph, you saw him entering the roadway well in front of you but you chose to keep traveling at the same speed and coming within inches of the car before switching lanes. That is some of the worst driving you can do. You have never heard of defensive driving. In such a case you should have let your foot of the accerator and smoothly switched lanes but not your. YOur agressive driving again comes close to killing someone. The number one thing about driving is to drive correctly yourself and then you can worry about others. If you are incapable of slowing your driving by a second to make it safer for everyone else on the highway then get off the highway or move where you do n0ot have to drive so much. You are the most dangerous driver I have ever personaly seen.
Same old Clover. Everyone else has to adjust to your kind. Make way, etc and so forth. A total passing of the buck. He’s doing about bicycle speed. 15-18mph. All of this I dealt with previous. See previous posts.
I am not sure the story of the second video. It is possible the guy was furious at you for tailgating. He then slowed so you got the idea. Other than that, you have road rage every day for these incidents although both are either were completly your fault or at least partially. You do have serious mental problems.
More of Clover’s projections of his own feelings. That guy is like you, a troll. Notice he had no problem with his vehicle or a personal issue with acceleration. If he had accelerated like that when he pulled out I would have never reached him. Instead he chose to block intentionally. He’s your hero.
Brent you were not even in the lane when he started entering the roadway. There was no one coming when he entered. Some people like to get more than 5 mpg when they can. If you have a problem with people not keeping their foot through the floorboards when they accelerate then take a gun to your head. It seems to me that a person like that has just as much rights or even more acclerating at their own pace as long as they are not significantly interupting traffic. Just go and kill yourself if you are not able to drive anywhere without using your full 150 hp or whatever.
Clover, a proper driver looks for people turning there. I have made the turn he did. I watch to see if people are turning right and drive not to interfere with them. If someone has an issue with acceleration the solution is very simple. Wait for a gap big enough. This is where you repeat your “fuck ‘em” style that if they didn’t interfere with others they would be there “forever” waiting. Because you’re rude, selfish, lazy, and demand others cater to you.
One more thing Brent, the driver of the pickup turned on the same road that the driver left from. The driver could not even see that you were there and why should he care. Do you ever think that if you drove normally that 95% if the times that you have complained about could not have happened? If you were not in such a hurry to accelerate to 40 mph this would not have happened. You also would have complained about the pickup truck also because he did not floor it in the intersection either. Get some mental help.
I’ve made that turn myself many times. The view isn’t blocked. A semi truck would not block the view. You fail. Again.
The rest has been covered at length. See previous posts you repetitive troll.
Yes Brent we know. You can see through a truck. It really does not matter though, the driver was in front of you when he entered the road. What law is it that the driver from behind has the right of way? Tell me how the driver was supposed to know that you use all of your engine’s power when you accelerate? YOu need to go see a shrink. You have mental problems.
Simple geometry escapes you:
| M| < ----------- H
There I drew it for you.
The sight line isn't where the truck is. The arrow is where I can see if anyone is turning right. It's a clear line of sight. Learn how to drive.
Brent you need mental help. For one the truck made a right turn in passing between you and the car you are complaining about. But even with that it just does not matter. He entered the roadway first and was in front. He had no idea a jerk would come from behind. You are the only one that broke laws here. Either go get some mental help or shoot yourself.
Not being visible for a fraction of second is irrelevant. The line of sight was clear before the truck entered the driveway, which he clearly waited for even though his movement had no conflict with the truck. I saw him clearly before I turned so he could see me. The truck did not block my vision of his presence. Go learn how to drive and be aware of your surroundings. He’s a road going troll, like you.
Why don’t you go prove your theory and pull out in front of a semi doing 40mph and see how it works out for you? Oh but that’s right, your kind doesn’t stand on principle and thus why the vast majority of those featured in my videos are in the bigger vehicle.
Brent did you read what I said? It does not matter if the guy saw you! He was in front. If a semi was stopped where you were the guy would not have been tailgated like you did because semis accelerate about half of what you did. Stick that in your ear.
You need to get off the road. I am sure there are guys that accelerate a lot faster than you are capable of with their V8s and with your four cylinder. Should they be abble to road rage you? You need mental help.
I know I do not accelerate as fast as some with v6s and v8s. I am not going to run my engine at 5,000 rpm just to try to please the idiot behind me. If they can not live with an extra second of travel time then they can drop dead in frustation.
Why don’t you go test your theory of driving by pulling out in front of semi trucks and not accelerating? Semis are going considerably faster than that guy was even if they make the turn. But that is irrelevant. You say it’s first to a spot on the road. Well go test it. See what happens.
Test your theories. Put your money where your mouth is troll.
The car I was driving has a 1.8L 4 cylinder engine with over 100K miles on it. It is not a fast car. And I shift way before 5K. Also the guy had no problem accelerating as he proved. So again, you prove yourself an idiot.
As I said Brent, if you get furious about spening an extra second during your commute then drop dead. Again, a semi would not have accelerated half of what you did. You say that you want to control the speed of others. What gives you the right to control others? You are the one that drives outside the norm. Why should we listen to you? You almost ran into the guy by him just slowing down. It is your responsibility to control your speed. You are the idiot.
Tell us what you would have done with that extra second if the guy accelerated faster and cost him more money in gas? Maybe you should pay everyone the extra costs in driving faster. In the days past and even today there are cars with around 60 hp engines. Would you ban them for not being able to accelerate to Brent’s standards?
I’ve been over this and over this you repetitive troll. It’s called basic respect for other people. If you want to accelerate or go slow that’s fine. Just wait until others have passed by. For the rest, no rerun. See other posts.
Other people, people who treat others with respect, instead of trolling on the road like you, drive like me. See the driver in the video above.
When you are willing to test the principle you laid out by pulling out in front something bigger than your vehicle let me know. Until then, STFU.
Brent you show respect to no one.
You did not say what what you were going to do with the extra second if they guy accelerated faster?
You did not say how the guy was to know that you accelerate 50% faster than the normal person?
You did not say why it is fine to tailgate and almost go throught the guy’s trunk just by him slowing down and not slamming on his brakes?
Did you ever take drivers training and is your driving an example of you training or do you make things up as you go?
Tell us why is it that you feel that it is fine to endanger others because you are losing a second or two of your time during your commute?
1) See previous posts.
2) You never answered what you do with the extra seconds you refuse to wait for traffic to pass by before pulling out and making others brake or take other evasive action. Answer or STFU.
3) See previous posts.
4) See previous posts.
5) See previous posts.
6) They aren’t in danger. I am. Because I have to avoid them. Drivers don’t cut me slack when I am bicycling. Hell much of the time I accelerate faster than them when I am using a bicycle. Clovers such as yourself are the most angered by bicyclists. When I pass them they get really angry. Why is that?
When are you going to test your principles with a big truck? Do it or STFU.
Brent you have no clue how to drive. When you are coming up from behind another vehicle and your distance is decreasing from 3 seconds then you let up on the gas. If your distance becomes close to 2 seconds you start applying brakes. You do not keep your speed until inches from another vehicle and stand on your brakes and horn. The world would be better off with you not around. Like I said, go and get some mental help or kill yourself.
You haven’t tested your theories with a big truck. You haven’t answered what you do with the time you save by not waiting for others to go by instead of pulling out in front of them, so STFU.
And I’ve already answered this BS of yours. If you don’t like how someone avoids you, don’t make them avoid you. Problem solved.
Brent I drive as I drive and it never has brought me close to a semi or other vehicles for that matter. Remember that it is only you that does not know how to drive and has weekly run-ins with other drivers and vehicles. I would imagine you are the expert at run-ins with a semi. I never drive agressively and I get where I am going in a timely manner with no run-ins with other vehicles. There is almost 0 chance that I will spend hours at an acidenst scene like you will. Go see a shrink or kill yourself.
You’re being non-reponsive.
You have not stated what you do with the time you save by forcing other drivers to avoid you instead of just waiting for them to go by. You haven’t tested your principles of driving against something that can’t avoid you and would destroy your vehicle, because you don’t work on principles. You just push around those smaller than you. Answer or STFU.
Editor’s note: paragraph of trolling deleted.
I have right of way Clover, I want to know what is so damn important that my time must be taken by the likes of you? You are the one making a demand of another person, it’s up to you to justify that demand. I see no answer. So STFU.
I don’t cut off or pull out in front of other drivers and force them to avoid me and I drive by that principle every day. When are you going to test yours that the other driver, who has right of way, must avoid you by forcing a very large and heavy vehicle do the avoiding? I don’t see you doing it, so STFU.
I understand Brent. The only problem is that you need ot have a large sign on your car. “Look out everyone. I am a guy with road rage. My time is far more important than yours. If you have to be delayed for 15 seconds to let me by to save 1 second than so be it. Follow the rules of Brent or you will get the rage of hell.”
Answer or shut up Clover.
Your kind threatens a crash if not let in. Then slows down traffic for mile upon mile. Seconds turn into minutes. minutes into hours as your kind’s bad driving sets up brake waves, long traffic light queues, congestion of many different sorts. All because your kind is lazy and impatient.
What is so damn important about your kind’s time and your comfort and your effort level that you can mess up the entire road system day after day after day?
Answer or STFU.
Brent I will bet that you have spent a thousand hours complaining about 1 hour of your so called delays. If time is so important to you think about that one. You would need dozens of your 1 or 2 second delays in a day to make any kind of difference. Think about that one.
You talk about dangerous drivers out there, you are number one in that catagory. The video that we were just talking about never would have happened to me. It would have been impossible. I do not tailgate causing the crashes or near crashes you have. I accept a second or two delay and live with it. It really does not even matter with 86,400 seconds in a day. At the same time I do not risk losing hours at an accident scene.
I have been in multiple parking lots on the highway where guys like you had to save a few seconds. I bet I have been delayed by hundreds of hours in my lifetime by drivers like you. The last one was a two hour delay by an aggressive driver. Who should we get off the roadway?
Still no answer. Just more Clover fantasy.
I am not responding to your fantasies.
Answer the question or STFU.
What is so important about you and your kind that others should live with delays small to huge caused by the fact that you are lazy arrogant drivers who are too impatient to wait for a gap of their liking and too lazy to drive in a manner not to cause problems for others?
When are you going to pull your stunts in front of a semi tractor trailer truck and tell the driver of said truck it would only be a couple second delay for him after he jack-knifes attempting to avoid you?
Which reminds me… someone told me of a collision he saw the other day. Some woman drove the way you endorse. She pulled out in front of a landscaping truck expecting the intrepid landscaper to avoid her. The truck and trailer jack knifed in the attempt to avoid her and got wedged blocking the road. Big traffic jam caused by ms. clover.
yes Brent there are drivers out there that do make mistakes and even some that should not be driving. You are one of those.
I do wish you were off the road. I really have seen no one worse than you.
Now I ask, you say there are some drivers out there that are not perfect. What is your answer to solve it? Road rage and even worse driving like you do? I do hope you kill yourself before you kill others.
Trolling is not an answer.
You are not adding anything constructive to this discussion.
You are boring and make little sense.
Mithrandir I am not adding to the discussion? I could send you a hundred videos a day of people driving so called properly. Thousand of videos a day on a long trip. What do you think the you and Damon add to this? I bet you could find a million examples like this a day. I am not sure what other thing could have happened here besides the driver driving the speed limit and Brent flying up behind him furious at someone that follows the laws he takes pride in breaking.
No, you’re not. A good troll is useful as a spring board for new topics. A bad troll just repeats the same things over and over again while getting deeper and deeper into lies and fantasy.
Brent you must be a troll because this post was not to be answered by you. It was a direct question to Mithrandir. Are you the same person? Is that why Mithrandir backs up what you do?
aww poor Clover. email him if you want a private discussion.
As I stated: You are not adding anything constructive to this discussion.
You are like the braying of a donkey with much noise, but little meaning. You may find a more receptive audience in front of a group of donkeys.
Bite your tongue BrentP. Reading clover’s drivel here is more than enough for my lifetime.
Hey, I think I caught a good video today. I’ll review it in a bit. A truck cutting of a bike right now front of me.
Since this is the same old same old, let’s try and improve things. What would be the proper action for the person in this video who, upon pulling out, noticed that there was someone coming up behind them at road speed? Is the first reaction to step on the breaks? Why, no. That would increase the probability of a crash. The reaction would be one of accelerating, thus attempting to put space between cars and reduce the probability of collision. That’s not what happened here. We can assume then, that the act of breaking, being against self interest, was intentional. This conclusion is further supported by said driver’s behavior of rapidly accelerating, knowing that the maneuver just perfumed had generated anger in the following car (Brent). This “break and run” is classic aggressive driving behavior.
