    I agree with all saying the driver is an idiot but...I would caution against being too holier-than-thou about it. Anyone can make a mistake. For those that think they are better drivers than him..well, maybe you are, but you may likely just be at a higher threshold when you make YOUR mistake and you may just not walk away smiling like this guy. You know...pride cometh before the fall and all that....just saying!

      The old adage about good pilots never letting their aeroplane get into a position where they need to demonstrate their good piloting skills applys equally for car drivers. Yes, Michael Schumacher or someone of that ilk could have probably held the skid for a bit longer and maybe executed a wonderful four-wheel drift around the corner, but I'd be willing to bet that on a public road, he would have slowed down before the corner and not switched off the T/C like a cockwhisk.

    I would laugh when they us the video to pull his ticket for speeding and reckless driving. Middle-age crises are about choices and consequences, turning off your T/C as you apply power in the curve is a most stupid, but knuckleheadedly-effective, way of proving this.

    Next time maybe he'll RTFM before pushing buttons he doesn't understand.
