"In defense of gamers, they thought they were being chased by Cuban drug dealers and only had 12 seconds to hit the next checkpoint."

Unbelievably stupid. Your life must really suck if you even think this while driving.

Most of these things are barely gaming related though. For example, what does being a gamer have to do with using a mobile phone while driving, or accidentally going the wrong way down a one-way street?

And since when was overtaking somebody considered "taking a risk"? o_O
