Schadenfreude Street

Speaking of England, the way those crazy Brits go after motorists really warms my heart. Thanks to an ingenious government plot, drivers who try to sneak into the high-speed lane meet their just desserts.

Oh man, can you imagine the conversation that couple had later?

"Honey, I told you not to go! What were you thinking?"

"I thought could make-" Slap.

So glad you posted this. I saw this video yesterday and just kept watching it over and over, like porn -- fantasizing about weight-activated spikes which impale and destroy vehicles that block crosswalks and bike lanes.

This is the level New York traffic has reduced me to.
