Doug Demuro driving his Carrera GT

It looks to me that he's just as much to blame as the other drivers.

Anyway, what do you think?

Keep it clean guys

I dug up the footage and it's sped up. I suppose there is a lot weaving going on but no more than me trying to get home when I have to pee.

When you got to go, you got to go

Yeah, the footage is sped up.

If they are chasing him, why dosen't he just pull over and let them pass, or get off the hwy

Lol @ his explanation come on... it's not because someone is swerving or following you that you do the same to get away from them... that will clearly only make it worse it's what those type of drivers like. You go in the right lane slow down and wait till they pass you. 2 wrongs don't make it right.

Almost every time I'd drive my Ferrari FF I'd get the same kind of thing, people speeding up and then slowing down next to you to take pictures/video, scream things out the window at you on the highway as if you're going to have a conversation with them or something. People are dumb.

I hope & dream to have this problem in the future when driving my own Ferrari.

So I get that people want to look at the exotic, but trying to outrun them or get away is only making the problem worse. Get off the freeway or what ever and park the car if you're concerned for your safety or that they are getting too close. Otherwise drive your car and enjoy it and enjoy the fact that other people also appreciate it.

One of the most annoying people on this planet has enough money to buy a Carrera GT.

What's the world coming to.

Poor Doug seems to have that personality...driving the car, nervously clutching the steering wheel hoping nobody bumps into him.

Just drive the car bro. Ignore everyone else.

IG links are broken, here's the video, just type instagram in the url:
https://www.TYPEINSTAGRAMHERE.com/p/Cr8v1iVJUB_/

Here's the video and it is sped up, but he is also crossing the carpool line, cutting in and out.

I don't know the context, were the other cars being overly aggressive? Personally, the easiest thing for me to do when other cars are trying to race is wave and not engage. Let them "win" their race.

On a side note, if you have ever driven that section of the 5N in Socal, people are NOTORIOUSLY slow for such a wide freeway for no reason. I'm not talking about traffic and rush hour, but just people being in the passing lane pacing the other lanes, wide gaps between cars. I don't get it, it's maddening. It's no excuse for cutting in and out like that, but maybe he had to poo.
