OK, so that first guy... he's nearly in the middle of a 3 lane road. I get staying over there when there are cars parked in the right lane but personally, i'm moving over when there's room. meanwhile I hope the genius ass pickup truck driver gets it good. There's a massive gulf between being a little greedy, lane wise, and operating your pick up truck like a deadly weapon.

Here's one a group called Wolfpack Hustle does in LA (they did the above one as well) - they basically stage a race on the LA marathon course at about 4 in the morning after the road has been closed, although apparently it's not as closed as they might want you to think:
