This Is Why I Always Ride With A Camera - DMV Harassment
I was riding behind a drivers license applicant and evaluator (unbeknownst
to me at the time). We were both signaling to turn right at the upcoming
intersection. Once they reached the intersection, they braked harder,
straightened their wheels, and almost came to a complete stop in the
intersection. I figured they were simply lost (either way, it was
dangerous for them to stop in an intersection). While staying behind the
car, I hesitantly went right, waiting to see to which direction they would
commit, and I gave them a honk as to say "hey, you need to keep moving."
They slowly went forward but then stopped in the middle of the street
again, even though they had a clear path into the driveway to the DMV. I
went to the right to get out of the middle of the street and I gave them
another honk, much more agitated this time. The car very slowly continued
and then stopped a third time in the middle of the driveway. I slowly
followed and kept my distance, trying to get out of the street as quickly
as possible. The car indicated a right turn into the parking lot and also
drove as if committing to that direction. I checked the right traffic
(camera-view blocked by my helmet) and slowly went to the left and parked
in the motorcycle parking area. The evaluator came out and started yelling
at me, saying that she took control of the wheel because she assumed I was
going to try to cut them off, which the footage shows I clearly never did.
She took down my license plate number and said she would try to get my
license revoked for being unsafe, which was completely ridiculous. If
anything, the evaluator was being unsafe by trapping me dead stopped in
moving traffic *three* times. As for cutting them off when they made the
left turn inside the parking lot, I can honestly say that it was an honest
mistake caused by their unpredictable driving patterns. They were
signaling right and they were driving in that direction. The driver's
behavior was erratic and gave the impression that they either didn't know
where they were going or that they didn't know how to drive. I had no way
of knowing that they were going to swing left behind me when they were
already committing to go right. The footage clearly shows that I wasn't in
any hurry or trying to cut anyone off. Furthermore, the evaluator was
obviously not using her brain because if she were, she would've noticed
that I was wearing full gear during the hottest day of the year so far
(over 100º). Shouldn't that show her where my priorities are? I wasn't
riding unsafely, but I do get impatient when people stop in the middle of
the road for no reason. It's unsafe and inefficient.
I made a few phone calls as soon as I got home and I ended up speaking to
the branch and regional managers for that DMV location. Once I shared what
happened and mentioned my video camera, they were quick to issue me an
apology and assure me that there will be no issue with my driving record or
Last note: for those of you who will say that I should have given the
drivers license applicant more grace because they are new, I have this
response: if you are supposed to be taking a test that authorizes you to
operate a motor vehicle on public streets, you should already be competent
enough to drive that vehicle smoothly and correctly. If you can't do that,
then you shouldn't be on the roads with the potential to get a lot of
people hurt or killed, including us motorcyclists who are the most common
victims of driver unawareness.
I'm adding the California Vehicle Codes related to this video. The driver
easily violated these three codes, and probably many more. What's worse,
the DMV worker admits in the video that she took the wheel and caused this
herself. She should know better.
"CVC 21717. Whenever it is necessary for the driver of a motor vehicle to
cross a bicycle lane that is adjacent to his lane of travel to make a turn,
the driver shall drive the motor vehicle into the bicycle lane prior to
making the turn and shall make the turn pursuant to Section 22100 [general
"CVC 22100. Except as provided in Section 22100.5 or 22101, the driver of
any vehicle intending to turn upon a highway shall do so as follows:
(a) Right Turns. Both the approach for a right-hand turn and a right-hand
turn shall be made as close as practicable to the right-hand curb or
edge of the roadway."
"CVC 22400. (a) No person shall drive upon a highway at such a slow speed
as to impede or block the normal and reasonable movement of traffic...
No person shall bring a vehicle to a complete stop upon a highway so as to
impede or block the normal and reasonable movement of traffic unless the
stop is necessary for safe operation or in compliance with law."

I enjoy the process of testing theory because you always learn something
new, regardless of the outcome.
Using a spark plug defouler kit, I install a "buffer" in between the
downstream oxygen sensor and the catalytic converter. Quite often,
frustrated car owners get the P0420 code for reasons other than a bad cat.
I have heard of people getting the code just because they removed the
converter and reinstalled it. It can also happen if you run your vehicle
out of gas etc... etc...
It is also common for car owners to get the P0420 code, replace the
converter, and both o2 sensors-- only to have the code come back after 1000
miles or so. This can be a very frustrating, time consuming and of
course-- expensive venture. Here is one way to resolve the issue. Good
luck and have fun!

13 Car Buying Mistakes - How Auto Dealerships rip you off - by The Homework Guy
http://www.thehomeworkguy.com/ How do Car Dealers take advantage of
you? 13 different car buying mistakes are presented in this video. Learn
about Car Salesmen and Auto Dealerships dirtiest tricks and how they rip
people off from Consumer Advisor Kevin Hunter, known as "The Homework Guy."
On this video, he uncovers '13 common Car Buying Mistakes' made by car
shoppers, that you should avoid. You'll also learn how to watch out for the
many vehicle scams sold by both new and used car dealers. These include
things like theft protection scams, GAP insurance that you likely won't
need or can get much cheaper from your own agent, and extended warranties
that can be completely inappropriate for some car buyers. Discover how you
can save time and money on your next new or used car purchase by doing your
homework first, and then going car shopping as an informed buyer. Visit The
Homework Guy website at: http://www.thehomeworkguy.com or find us on

It's definitely a buyer beware world out there! If you watched the video
"Confessions of a car dealers backroom" you need to see this video. By
understanding what mistakes to avoid, you'll not only become a smarter car
buyer, but you'll also better understand what not to tell a car dealer when
buying a car. It's true that you can play all your cards up front with an
honest dealer, but unfortunately, they represent the minority of dealer
owners. Be smart, do your homework, and you'll come home with a car deal
that's good for you and the dealer. After all, that's what fairness is all
about. We don't endorse anyone being ripped off, and that includes some
customers who think it's 'justice' to turn tables and try to 'steal' a car
from a dealer. Everything we talk about has to do with fairness and
honesty, and that works both ways. Respect the dealers right to make money
in your quest to get a fair and honest car deal, proving to them you're an
honest person too. It's this kind of attitude by car dealers and consumers
alike that will change the car business. We wish you the best!

How Not To SeaFoam(TM) Your Car
Why do people think I'm redlining the engine? The highest it gets to is
3krpm, less than half way to redline. It sat at 4krpm at 70MPH on the
highway. Seafoam, when used correctly does wonders to clean out an engine.
This is not a reaction video, the engine does not explode or seize.

the entire $12 can drains through his air filter and onto the ground lol.
