This is a video of a driver in Chicago who hits a cab, then tries to flee the scene at low speed. Unfortunately for him, he’s the world’s worst driver and crashes into five more cars in the process. Think of him as Ryan Gosling’s character in ‘Drive’, if that character had been raised in the woods and thought cars were metal animals you could sit inside.
Witnesses heard the cab driver ask the motorist for his insurance.
“He tried to just take care of things peacefully in the beginning, but then once he saw that he was trying to take off, that’s when he took it upon himself to get traffic to stop him,” witness Karen Morris said. “It looked like it was straight out of a movie. We were all just stunned.”
Adding to the driving debacle, Police News Affairs Officer Janel Sedevic said the 20-year-old motorist, who didn’t own the car he was driving, then crashed into a tree off-camera.
Sedevic said the driver was arrested and charged with several traffic misdemeanors as well as criminal trespass of a vehicle and damage to city property (the tree).
Ahahahhaha, you got charged with damage to city property for crashing into a tree. I’m not gonna lie, that’s not going to get you a lot of street cred in the slammer. Actually, nothing about this this story. If I were you I’d lie and say you stabbed someone. PROTIP: Say it was a relative (we’ve all been there).
Keep going for the video, but skip at least halfway through if you just want to see the good stuff.Related Posts:
This is a series of Pokemon character cars created by Toyota and Japanese toy maker Takara Tomy as some kind of weird-ass cross promotion. And speaking of cross promotions: hot sauce and extra-absorbent toilet paper. It just makes sense.
Japanese toy maker Takara Tomy is running a campaign this summer with Toyota dealers to give away Pokémon mini toy cars as part of a promotion with the new Pocket Monsters feature film.
Recently, real versions of the cars were on display.
Ah yes, the old “Have parents bring their kids to the dealership for a free toy then force them to buy a minivan” tactic. That’s classic Car Sales 101 right there. Also, not zipping your pants so the buyer feels sorry for you. Honey, the poor bastard’s wearing novelty Christmas boxers in June, the least we can do is buy a motorcycle.
Hit the jump for the others.
Driving through Las Vegas can be distracting — bright lights, sun-powered death rays and international Consumer Electronics Shows have a tendency to catch a geek’s eye — good thing, then, that Nevada’s deemed Google fit to test its autonomous automobile on public streets. The state’s Department of Transportation was tasked with penning a set of safety standards for self-driving cars last June, and is now letting the cars run amok on city streets, with a few restrictions.
Mountain View’s three test vehicles, for instance, will need to haul a carpool of at least two passengers before driving down the strip, one person to take the wheel in case of an emergency, and another to monitor a computer screen that details the car’s planned route. Test vehicles will also don red license plates and an infinity symbol to mark them as self-driving prototypes. Nevada DMV Director Bruce Breslow says those plates will be green once the vehicles are ready for market, something he hopes to see in three to five years.

Nouveau, the open source graphics driver for NVIDIA GPUs is finally taking off the stabilizers, wandering out from the staging area, and being accepted as part of the standard stable kernel set-up. The project began nearly six years ago, so it’s been a long road, but one that has earned it favor in certain corners of the Linux world. Things started gaining traction in the last three years as more and more distros started adopting, and Mr Linux himself, Linus Torvalds, suggested it be part of the kernel. Want to see how it performs? Head on down to the source link where the gents at Phoronix have kindly given it some comprehensive benchmarks.

When we reviewed Dell’s XPS 13 ultrabook last week, only three things held it back: an iffy display, a lightweight battery and a sluggish, buggy trackpad. Well, the last of those problems may soon be no more, as Dell’s got a fix on the way, and we can personally vouch that the new drivers are far more satisfactory. Presently, the XPS 13′s Cypress touchpad drivers are at v220.127.116.11, and that’s what you’ll find on Dell’s site, but we found v18.104.22.168 far faster to respond to user input and (after a quick run of a Dell-provided calibration tool) also a bit more precise. Perhaps most importantly, though, v22.214.171.124 automatically disables the trackpad after you begin typing, which keeps your palms from making the cursor jump when they brush the…

It ain’t the first automaker to do so, but Ford’s taking a step in the ‘stay in your own lane!’ direction with a new technology package for the Explorer. The Driver Alert System is slated to launch in early 2012, and it’ll tout new lane keeping technologies, including a system that can help detect drowsy drivers. The goal here is to keep sleepyheads from destroying lives — be it their own or others — by suggesting that they pull over, rest and have a sip of coffee if they’ve been cruising along for an extended period of time. Furthermore, a camera setup will monitor one’s lane position, and if they drift too far away from the straight and narrow, their steering wheel will vibrate. It all sounds good and well, but the fact that a AAA survey found that over 40 percent of Americans have “fallen asleep or nodded off while driving” makes ‘staying at home’ seem like the sensible choice.
