zero sympathy for lane splitters, or cars that go on the berm, or the median to cheat traffic.
yeah, go ahead and start a 10 pager about how lane splitting is for the greater good of all....there is no way I'll ever be convinced lane splitting is anything other that self centered, selfish narcissistic belief that the individual is above the overall flow of traffic.
Those two in the clip no exception, Wish I spoke russian, seemed like the first guy was blaming the driver of the car.

What they were doing in that video was just old fashioned reckless driving.
