While driving from Burbank to Glendale on a recent afternoon, I decided to take Glenoaks Boulevard. I pulled up to the light at Highland Avenue and waited. When it turned green, this white car in front of me floored the gas pedal and off he went - so fast that his car violently veered from left-to-right and I honestly thought he was going to crash. He straightened himself out and then turned onto Kenilworth. Good riddance. I looked at the car next to me and we both were shaking our heads in disbelief.
