Today is St. Patrick’s Day, the annual celebration of all things Irish and of making variations on the “St. Amateur’s Day” joke. It’s also a day when police ramp up their presence looking for revelers who have had a wee bit much to drink, and who forget that all MCTS bus rides are free after 6 p.m. (sponsored by Miller Lite!) So instead of getting shit-faced and getting behind the wheel, why not take a seat on the bus and enjoy these strangely hypnotic and kind of nitpick-y “Bad Drivers of Milwaukee” videos?
Courtesy of YouTube user Midwest Streets and his/her trusty dashboard cam, these three clips chronicle Milwaukee County traffic violations both major and minor, from drivers blowing red lights to drivers leaving their blinkers on too long. They also offer a glimpse into the mind of the kind of person who drives around all day looking for improper lane changes, with plenty of pithy, passive-aggressive text commentary. (“Truck comes from behind me, attempts to pass. I was having none of it.”) Enjoy, and seriously: if you’re going to drink today, take the fucking bus.
