I don't know if she was surfing the interwebs while having a lobster dinner in her car, but if you speed on the freeway, be ready to fishtail or swerve.

So I won't complain.

I feel like you should have counter steer around the car. And its unsafe to pass on the right side lanes IMO.

At least it does'nt look like you're splitting lanes.
You need to keep in mind that when you're travelling that much faster than traffic people are much less likely to see you in their mirror when they change lanes.
Because you are covering ground at a much faster rate than they are when they scan their mirrors to change lanes you may not be within their range, only to wind up there when they move.
Watch your out there, and as other have suggested consider slowing down a bit, at least in traffic.

Guys guys, he is from Russia!

Bro, that is not KPH anymore, it is MPH.

Glad you weren't crushed, the person may or may not have seen you. I say she was texting.

The "stoopid cager" was making a legal lane change AND using signals. Triple digit speeds in metro traffic is a formula for disaster.

Why the would you post a video of you doing 100+ mph and then have the audacity to blame the car for your stupidity.

Folks, we have another dumbass on our hands!!!

Agreed. When I am a cager, I don't expect traffic to be overtaking me at twice my speed.
