Crossing the line in the canyons – Click above to watch video after the jump

There are plenty of roadways in and around Los Angeles that provide excellent opportunities to test a vehicle. Blind curves, dramatic elevation changes and scenic vistas combine to create wonderful stretches of asphalt. These roads attract great drivers and amazing machines, but they also attract more than a few idiots lacking in the common sense department. Those double-yellow lines running down the middle of the road are there for a reason, and ignoring isn't just bad form, it's dangerous.

One particular stretch of road that's popular with Southern Californian drivers is Mulholland Highway. A camera crew is usually on-hand over the weekends, and one group has strung together a video showing a collection of lane-crossers showing off some genuinely lousy driving. Stay in your lane and hop the jump to watch the video. Thanks for the tip, Brandon!

      Seems like your average south american driver, only slower and in better cars.

      They need some air horns to blare at the people.

      But seriously, its a bunch of people with way to much money and not nearly enough driving ability. I still think an actual driving course should be required to get a license. Driving down the block and back just doesn't cut it.

      Bad driving aside, the sound from the Lambo was beautiful.

      What ?! There's no reason for doing that... the curve seems to be fairly normal and those car should be able to handle it perfectly... Stupid Drivers

      I've never been to this road. Is it normal for crowds of photographers to be on curves? Distracted drivers? The Lotus wasn't going very fast at all. not fast enough for it to drift out of its lane.

      Our friends father had his leg removed due to a motorcycle accident 2-days ago where a driver came over into his lane in Texas. The timing to see this today was crazy.

      No amount of money will bring back a life. Show up at the funeral of some poor motorcyclist and apologize to the family. Then give them money.

      That guy in the mini just experienced understeer in its truest form. Gives Minis a bad name.

      Wow, I did not expect this spectacle at all.

      If I remember correctly, this is a decreasing radius corner. Probably explains all of the inexperienced drivers coming in too hot and running off the road. Anyway, they're all asshats. I'm doing a road trip to Cali later this year with my brother to drive some twisties and I hope to god we don't run into these douchies.

      Wouldn't you LOVE to be a citizen-police officer ?

      Just capture the offenders on video and then you upload to a special website for all to see and mock. Best part is you follow the driver /or vehicle and either personally hand them a ticket or leave it on their windshield with the website URL and a reference number so they can witness their idiocy / law-breaking / dangerous driving for themselves.

      The bizarre thing is that I was just thinking about the whole crossing lanes to drive faster issue today on my commute home. My musing was a result of almost getting ran off of a narrow road into a tree when some idiot decided that it would be ok to cut his apex around a semi-blind curve into my lane. If you can't manage the turns while staying in your lane, then you are driving too fast.
