"I have something else to show, you look at, this check this out! Don't try this at home, kids, because you don't want to be on TV, right?!"

Yeah, the 101 goes right through my home.

" Don't do this at home.."
"Don't do this on the 101" is correct.

That should get some views.

Some kids electric kart. If it was a pro kart, the cops would have had no shot.

Or the 605, 405, 710, 210, or 134

Imagine this. It's 2am. You feel the need for attention so you get on your kart (because you're rich enough to own one but dumb enough to make decisions) and drive on the freeway. At the same time, a truck driver who's been tired driving around decides to make a lane change. She doesn't see you (hey it's modern day America, of course there are more female truck drivers) and merges into your lane. Being the entitled little brat you are, you refuse to give up your lane because it would show weakness to your "followers". A few minutes later, your video is uploaded to death video sites and you are immortalized as the kart rider who got crushed into paste by a truck because of your false bravado.

And the truck driver probably won't know anything happened.

Might not even bounce the trailer if it was loaded.

And it's a long day livin' in Reseda
There's a freeway runnin' through the yard
And I'm a bad boy, 'cause I don't even miss her
I'm a bad boy for breakin' her heart

True story. I took a load of auto parts to Pasco, Washington. Slept at Twin Falls, Idaho, did my pre-trip, everything is cool. Made no stops until I got to the gate at Pasco. Go to open the trailer doors and there's blood sprayed all the way to the top. At some point in those 400 or so miles something ran under the trailer, made it under the axles and raised up in time to snag the ICC bar, got spun around that and its head hit on the lip below the doors, spraying blood 8 feet straight up and leaving just a few hairs on the lip, so I know it was a mammal.

Probably a coyote, but I never saw any wildlife close to the road.

Shiat, the shape most roads in this Country are in a trailer never stops bouncing.

I believe you. But you should have slowed down for the group of kids. They don't scurry away like birds or squirrels.

Pffft build a real machine and send it back in time 15 years before Kart Vader did it.

I disagree.  Zero social media content is very much worth putting your life in danger.

So one day I just finished the home Depot in ladera heights and I'm on slauson which becomes the 90 freeway for a little while and I take that West because I'm going to take the 405 north. Now right after I go over la cienega I noticed he's too little mini bikes and it's like a pit bike but they have a lawn mower engine and there's these two kids and they're cruising down slauson and I'm like well okay it's different no plates or anything they're homemade. So I go to get on the 90 freeway section because slauson becomes the freeway for a little while and these two kids they just gas it and they're cruising along on the freeway one day this is a quite a few months ago. So I guess are couple little rich kids from playa del Rey or Marina del Rey one of those freaking towns and for all I know that's a regular thing for them. At least people didn't try to run them over. And cool story bro

I had to check your profile to see if I knew you. Shoulda known by the way you used "the 101" that I didn't.

Well, saying "The 101" confirms he is from SoCal.

SoCal people say "the" followed by the highway number.  They make no distinction between state highways and interstates and the like because the state of California is smart enough to not duplicate state highway numbers with Federal highways and Interstate numbers.

NorCal people just say the highway number.  They make no distinction between state highways and interstates and the like because the state of California is smart enough to not duplicate state highway numbers with Federal highways and Interstate numbers.

The rest of the country says things like "I-10" and "State Route 10".  In fact, State Route 10 and I-10 could be different roads near each other in some states.

Last line of the article: "Absolutely zero social media content is worth putting your life or others in danger," the CHP said in its Facebook post.
Probably posted on the computer in the car, or the officer's cell phone as the officer drove to the next thing...

It sounds so foreign/english-as-a-second-language to add the superfluous "the" before the number (to me)

Like someone saying "Hello, the doctor!, nice to see you" or "Im going to go to the outside and get some fresh air"

But yeah, it certainly identifies someone as being in urban southern california, just like "y'all" or "I reckon'" identifies someone as from the "south" I guess.

Or :"Yeah, No" for Kiwis
