I’m a real sucker for artists who use cars as their subject of choice—especially the ones who manage to do something unconventional with their ideas.

Don't Be the Asshole Who Stops Interstate Traffic to Do Donuts

I can’t believe that there are people out there who still need to hear this, but here it is again: The middle of an interstate is not the place to have your street race meet up.
