Do we need an OAKLAND tag?

rnatalie: Do we need an OAKLAND tag?


No, it will just try and take the other tags wallets, bad idea

This sounds like a plot from a 60s police comedy serial.
 
2013-01-28 09:24:23 AM
Better than doing barrel rolls at least.

And now the video is publicly available and the cops will grab plates or other means of identification off it and arrest these idiots, no warrant necessary

lived in the east bay a long time, will live there again by the end of the spring.

you guys know about the story of Dehaussmann and how he redesigned paris from the ground up for Napoleon III in the 1850s?

basically, paris was this rabbit warren of mideval windy streets which were very easy to clog up and barricade. the peasants would get unruly, block the streets, and it would be very difficult to march troops into the areas effected in suitable formations and stamp them out.

so, by the time napoleon III came around, there'd been 3 revolutions in living memory and they were tired of it, so he hired this architect to basically demolish the mideval center of paris and rebuild it, et voila! the grand boulevards of paris as we know them today and as were copied all over europe, were born. the seditions neighborhoods were destroyed, the residents relocated, the narrow alleys demolished and replaced with wiiiiide streets that didnt bend much so it was easy to march in troops in force (or even cavalry and guns), and difficult for the rabble to barricade up.

SOMEONE NEEDS TO RESURRECT HAUSMANN AND REDESIGN OAKLAND.

the whole city needs to be demolished, replanned, and its population dispersed. they made some progress in the immediate downtown area near Jack London but the rest of the place, right off the fwy where this vid is shot, and especially west oakland, needs to be condemned, burned to the ground like plague houses and rebuilt fresh.

They're protesting global warming. The roads aren't covered in ice, so they're doing the next best thing.

They must have picked on the only spot smooth enough on 880 to do donuts without tearing up the cars. A freeway in name only, the northern part of 880 is mainly a tight-wall goat track of heaving concrete and torn up asphalt. Farkers taking their lives in their hands doing that shiat up there.

Surprised anyone didn't shoot them.

You can unexpectedly shut down a highway for repaving?

At least they did it with cars. It's funny when the morons on the motorcycles think they're going to win the fight with the 4000lb steel cage they're trying to stop from rolling up behind them.

That said, these people should be forced to watch their precious cars crushed into a cube and then have to work at the DMV for the rest of their lives.

Tards in DC do the same thing on the beltway, but with sportbikes. You'll have 10 of them line abreast to slow the traffic down to 55mph, then 1 goes forward and starts doing wheelies and stunts at 80mph. Then they take turns doing it. One will inevitably wipe out and stunningly crash, putting on a spectacle for anyone with front row seats.

Psh, I made my own spectacle when a group of them tried to do that while I was driving through Dallas. When they suddenly found my bumper three inches off of their rear tire they decided to go pull their bullshiat somewhere else.

/itg, yadda yadda, I don't fark care. I have a special hatred in my heart for selfish assholes that think they can just bend the rules of society for their own amusement.

Is it wrong to wish for them to do that near someone who was willing to smash them out of the way? I think it would be worth the damage to that person's car just to do it.

These are the bullshiat escapades called, or at least related to, 'side shows' (google it and watch the a-hols at work on city streets.)

In a just society, you could do that and be awarded a medal by city hall. Unfortunately, in ours you would probably be charged with manslaughter.

/doesn't mean you couldn't get off
//Your honor, the bikers swerved in front of me and stood on their brakes. I physically did not have the time to slow enough to avoid them and other traffic on the road prevented me from being able to move around.

All you people pissing an moaning about guys doing donuts in the highway are WAY TOO OLD and GRUMPY. I assume you'd only be happy if someone spilled rancorfish all over the place, or someone died in a fiery wreck. What better reason for a shut down highway have you ever heard? Donuts? That ROCKS
 
2013-01-28 12:01:42 PM
Article fails without mentioning the police showing up and charges being laid.

And it appears the police are failing at this too Link.

/at least if you want to have fun with your car's performance, this stretch of highway seems pretty poorly monitored...

As a redneck with a beat up vehicle, I can honestly say that I have never once had to suffer a fool on the roadway. Mr. Shiny Beamer/Audi/Mercedes/Car-Enthusiast tends to back-off when they realize that I don't care about my POS vehicle even a fraction that they do about their cars. Same goes with retards like these guys in the video. I'm going to continue driving; if your car hits mine cause you're being an asshole or a moron ... either we'll have words or our insurance companies will.

So fun story ... I remember one time driving North on I-65 headed up to Lafayette, IN. On the interstate these two really pretty sports cars were pacing each other at 30-40mph (speed limit is 70). Obviously being dicks because you could see them laughing as they speed up and down, etc. Well, thankfully the person in front of me got over to let me up into the #2 spot. I flashed my brights a couple times and was promptly given the finger. Well, sadly for that pretty sports car, the front of my truck don't give a fark what's in front of it. You wanna know what's scary? Tapping someones fender at 40MPH. Myself and that asshole in front of me both started fishtailing it. The only difference was that I was prepared for it. I've never laughed so hard in my life seeing someone go flying into a ditch.

I still get a huge shiat-eating grin thinking about that ...

Well, that's the first time I've ever seen someone admit to attempted vehicular homicide. I guess if you live long enough you'll see everything.

FTA: But one place where donuts are never acceptable is the highway, in the middle of the day, when other drivers are just trying to get to and fro. Unfortunately, that's exactly what this group of hoons did in California did recently. Best of all, they filmed it and put the video on Facebook.

What aholes. The most ahole thing my friends used to do way back when on the beltway (off my lawn) was race on it. From Georgia Ave all the way around. We would do it saturday night / sunday morning.

I have zero remorse for what I did. Hopefully they learned that if you play with fire you'll occasionally you get burned. These motherfarkers were the ones causing the problem and putting others in danger in the first place. You think I'd give a shiat if someone got out and put a bullet in the head of the morons doing donuts? Not at all. In fact, I'd vote to give the person a medal who did it.
