This Is Why You Shouldn’t Drive on the Sidewalk

“I was sitting in traffic when all of a sudden a taxi jumped on the sidewalk,” writes YouTube dash-cam fan NY DashCams about his or her only video. Watch as a taxi driver decides to circumvent a traffic jam by brazenly driving down the sidewalk, getting stuck, trying to turn a corner, and getting stuck some more. And then, the whole block erupts into a symphony of damning honking. Very exciting… I mean, it’s no tank, meteorite or mass soul-crushing despair worthy of a Daily Show segment, but this isn’t Russia. Keep on tryin’, NY DashCams!
