What kind of lame ass excuse is this for speeding?
MC: Do you know why I stopped you?
MC: You were speeding.
Driver: But I was just going with the flow of traffic.
Really? You’re defense lies squarely on the shoulders of all the ‘other’ drivers that were speeding? This, of course, logically leads to the oft-quoted “If all the other drivers drove off a cliff, would you?” theory. Maybe you would.
See, though, here’s the thing. You weren’t ‘going with the flow’. If you were in fact going with said flow, I would have pulled over more than just you. This is what I’ll quaintly refer to as Hint #1. Hint #2 is that if you leave a pack of cars only to catch up to the pack in front of them, then you are surpassing the aforementioned flow. Hint #3: when you are passing other cars, you are, by definition, exceeding the flow. It’s a physics thing, kids, I’m not making this shit up.
So, please, do us all a favor and maybe actually go with the flow, because the flow isn’t going anywhere near as fast as you.
