many people feel roads were built for bicycles and pedestrians, not vehicles. And it is California, lots of freaks out there.

Re: Guy crashes brand new BMW M4

I've lost the rear at the top of third in a straight line with only a damp road, and I mean only patches of dampness even. This is a completely different animal than any of the M3's prior.
