Driving without lighting.

Kenter at Robinwood 2/27

Ran the stop sign.

Sunset at Cliffwood 2/27

This Audi tailgated me, then the white Prius, then the grey Prius, then the black Prius.

See those kids there? The lights in the road are flashing, the big fluorescent yellow Pedestrian Crossing sign is flashing, and STILL this guy blew through the intersection like there was no tomorrow.

Ocean Park from Lincoln to 18th 2/26

Tailgated, and tailgated, and tailgated some more. When I stopped for a red light on an uphill slope he pulled up so close behind me that when I took my foot off the brake to put the car in gear I kissed his bumper.

Ocean Park at 7th 2/26

The silver car is just sitting there, blocking traffic.

Ocean at Montana and Washington 2/26

This guy HAD to be in front of everyone all the way down, so he swerved into the bike lane to whiz by two cars on the right. And here he is three signals later, with all of us slowpokes.

Pedestrian? Crosswalk? Huh? Whaaa...?

Ocean Park at 7th 2/24

There are some Touareg drivers out there who need a lesson in automotive heredity. This guy just pulled out in front of me.
