On Driving in LA...
"....And when L.A. drivers crash, they do it as if they were auditioning for a Michael Bay movie. I'm embarrassed to admit it, but after 20 years as a test driver and auto writer, I have yet to learn how to flip a car on a straight and level highway. Yet in L.A. such stunts are so common, the radio copter jockeys describe them like sporting events: "Good morning, folks. At the moment we're following a particularly unstable late-model pickup truck on the Santa Monica Freeway. Looks like he's getting ready to perform a two-and-a-half gainer with a full twist into the bridge abutment, degree of difficulty two point seven." "

Hey there, be nice. We practice these maneuvers often just so we can get them right as there are no retakes in real life and certainly no f-ing budget and sometimes no insurance.
