It's funny what small road bumps will do when some asshole displays a criminal disregard of any safe speed limit.

Why didn't he just pause the car, like they used to do in Dukes of Hazzard, so he could have stepped out?

The My Little Pony Killer: This is your daily reminder that the driver of Paul Walker's death mobile was his friend, Roger Rodas. Not only is Roger Rodas a professional driver, he owns a car customization company. All that vehicle knowledge, and absolutely zero respect for the fact that he was operating a killing machine in the worst possible way.

R.I.H. Roger Rodas. You could have put actual people's lives at risk, you selfish asshole.

/rest in hell

Vewy well, I shall... Welease... Woger!

steamingpile: KellyX: Seems the key paragraph is this:

"We've learned the experts have told the family ... a car going speeds approaching 90 MPH will lose traction after hitting a series of Botts' Dots.  It's akin to driving on ice -- and  control is further compromised by the fact that the Porsche was outfitted with special racing tires that have very little tread."

Yes but what I have read was they weren't going 90 and that is just talking about normal cars, when you add in soft compound tires it makes it a lot worse.

But people who have never driven on soft compound tires will never understand that fact, mainly because they cost double than what regular tires cost and last less than half as long.

Call me crazy, but when you hit a lamp pole, take it down, and then hit a tree and the tree cuts your car in half and sticks out of the middle of it... I suspect you're going a tad more than 45 MPH

Until this dude died I had never heard of him.  I don't understand mourning celebrities who cause their own fate, whether by specific choices that result in an early death, or lifestyle choices that made an early death inevitable.

The druggie from Glee
The Joker
Gun-eater Cobain
Whitney Houston
Michael Jackson
And any one of a hundred others.

I hit a manhole that had been raised in preparation for repaving and it caused me to go out of control and hit a pole, nearly killing two of my friends.

/so I'm getting a kick

Seequinn: What do those  accident reconstruction experts say about the speed the vehicle was moving at that allowed it to start hydoplaning in the first place?

I cannot wait for these reconstruction experts to explain how metal & plastic objects cause "hydroplaning." Sudden and unexpected loss of grip, especially so if you are using racing tires, maybe, but unless these also exude some form of liquid, this statement makes them sound dumb.

We had something similar to this in San Diego recently.

The parents of a young man killed in a crash actually said that if the road didn't have dips in it their boy would not have lost control while doing in excess of 100 miles per hour. I will admit to taking those dips at a speed slightly higher than the posted limit but that's only so I can watch my wife's boobs jiggle.

I don't know- I travel over lots of speed bumps, and in a very poor handling SUV. Never had any problems.

I wonder what the difference cold be?

Pedestrians walking at 80 mph caused my windshield to break - it wasn't me.
