Richest Most Reckless Drivers

Aug 19, 2013

A study by a University of California researcher found that drivers of expensive cars were more likely to ignore pedestrians in an intersection than drivers of less valuable cars. The study had 152 pedestrians appear on the edge of the curb as a car approach and noted the cars’ responses. All the drivers of beaters slowed down, “but you see this huge boost in a driver’s likelihood to commit infractions in more expensive cars.”

We always knew the rich got that way by their willingness to run people down!
