Hey! Saw this on Fark.com yesterday and it cracked me up. You just cant screw around with the traffic in atlanta. That van hit a parked car trying to get around people who were going the speed limit (which is an absurd 50mph ).

Nothing wrong with going the speed limit... However you were breaking the law. It is illegal in the State of Georgia to ride beside another car driving at the same speed on a multi-lane road.

Eh, the "Watermelon 500" is a trucker term describing crazy traffic on I-285 in Atlanta. Why watermelon? Because it refers to blacks and their disruptive driving habits. Ex: driving slow on the inside lane, driving fast on the outside lane, talking on cellphones while driving, riding to be seen instead of simply traveling, changing lanes with no signal, etc.
