AOTW: If You're Gonna Drive Don't Drive Stupid

Welcome back to The Asshole of The Week, where each Friday we focus on one person, place, or thing from the week that is the absolute worst.  This week we journey to the south, to meet some people who are stupid, and thus, supreme assholes.

Driving.  If you really think about it, driving a car is insane.  You hurl yourself down a paved road in thousands of pounds of metal at completely lethal speeds, and the only thing separating you from death is usually a colored line on the ground.  We even give essentially children the right to risk their lives at 16, and on top of it all nothing stops you from getting hammered and spinning the wheel of chance with your life and the lives of whoever might be on the road with you.

People apply their makeup whilst risking their lives.  Talk on the phone, not about their mortality, but about Instagram posts.  They even film others driving like idiots, while they themselves are driving.  However, nothing endangers the road more than one trait: being an idiot.

Hint: Not the correct way to face a car on the roadway.

Everyone thinks the drivers where they live are the worst drivers in the world. While the usual offenders seem to be in Russia, China and Florida, this supercut makes me wonder if South Carolina should be a top contender as well.

YouTube's HaloMasterMind117 is in the habit of taking a dash cam with him wherever he goes so he can share his most hilarious, horrifying and bizarre experiences with the rest of the world. He's mostly in the greater Columbia area, but he gets around the whole state.

This video is a supercut of his favorite dash cam moments, from himself and a few guests, over the last three years. Once you start watching, you won't be able to stop. I don't understand how one person can encounter that much assholery on the road — I've had stuff like this happen to me before, but, like, nowhere near this often.

My favorite moment happens about six minutes and 18 seconds in. I won't spoil it for you, but it will have you laughing.

Then you'll start crying when you marvel at how stupid some of these drivers are. Remind me to not drive in South Carolina, ever.

Check it out:

Wow.  South Carolina, you are truly one of a kind.  Who knows what makes you all so stupid?  Could it be the schools?  Or is it something in the water?

One thing is sure.  Your state is clearly The Asshole of the Week for this one.  Congratulations.
