• Often a driver or pedestrian makes an obvious mistakes and steps out into the wrong places in traffic. I know of drivers who get as close as they can to these confused drivers or pedestrians in an attempt to teach them that they were wrong.
  • I have seen drivers intentionally block other cars from getting around them or passing them by.
  • I have seen drivers move out into the head-on lane to drive around a slower object, and stay in that lane to thrill the opposing vehicle coming the other way.
  • I have had drivers in a big parking lot filled with snow spin the car around in a circle, for fun.
  • Often I know of drivers who enter corners with too much speed causing the car to slide sidways a little or causing the back of the car to slide out of place like a fish tail.
  • I’ve even experienced drivers increasing thier speeds over a sharp hilltop or a massive bump in an attempt to ‘Catch Air‘ or jump the car off the ground.

Did you know that all of these above examples fit into the stunt driving law?
