Possible New Example for both Live Action TV and Real Life.

Andrew Younghusband, host of Canada's Worst Driver , will also be presenting Don't Drive Here, a series about driving in the worst congested cities of the world.

I wonder if the producers looked at this page for suggestions!

I deleted this example. Memes are discouraged as examples. It could be added if it's re-written, using reference from Know Your Meme, or it could be added to Image Links sub-page.

    New Media 
  • There's a South Korean internet meme called "Kim Yo-sa," or "Madam Kim," where pictures of bizarre car accidents and bad road behavior are attributed to a single middle-aged Korean woman via amusing captions.

Does this trope counts when a character is too good driver? Like driving in a "absurdly efficient" way being his standard.

By the way, this isn't Played for Laughs.

Okay, I'm sorry, this one just drives me crazy:

  • We Californians are infamous for our bad driving habits. There's a reason why we coined the term "Rush Hour". How bad is it on other states? Montana, a state that made do without speed limits, had to put them back in to deal with the damn Californian yuppie tourists.
    • Hell, this trope oughta be renamed to "California Driver": nobody would know the difference!
    • All Californians are active practitioners of the "California Roll-Through".
    • We also are known for our "California Stops", which is slowing down to 10 mph at a stop sign, then keep going. Also, speed limit be damned!
    • Not only were we the first state to introduce Hands Free and No Texting While Driving laws, the police don't enforce them anyway! Even the Governator's wife doesn't care!
    • The monorail tour at the San Diego Wild Animal Park often concluded by alongside the highway to show passengers the most dangerous animal of all: the San Diego Road Hog.
    • Illegal immigrants driving around in the Phoenix, AZ area are only slightly worse then Californian drivers.

I mean, really, speeding, not stopping all the way at stop signs and right turns, and texting while driving? Have you ever been outside California? Because to this Masshole, writing this from behind the wheel  *, if that's what you consider "hilariously bad driving," you're making it sound like a granny-shifter's paradise.
