“What’s going on here?” I haven’t a clue.
The Capitol Beltway, RT. 495, is one of the busiest and most dangerous highways in the Virginia/D.C./Maryland region. So, naturally, some idiot decided to do “donuts” with his vehicle at about 7 pm this Saturday night, in the middle of the Beltway in Prince George’s County where it passes through College Park, Maryland.
The line of cars behind this maniac slowed and then stopped traffic, according to Maryland State Police. Onlookers got out of their cars to watch and take videos of the spontaneous exhibition, which stopped the typically 70-80 mph traffic for abut 8 minutes. Some of the motorists saluted the driver by spinning their own cars’ wheels in place, “sending plumes of smoke into the air” according to NBC News in D.C. One video appears to show a second car participating.
You can see a video here.
I think this is my favorite part: the driver finished his stunt, and drove away. No arrest was made.
I guess he was an illegal immigrant.
Or Andrew Cuomo.
