Los Angeles takeover shuts down streets, showcases display of idiocy.
In case you aren’t familiar with “takeover” events, consider yourself lucky. In short, as seen in the video above, these are unsanctioned late night gatherings where dozens of vehicles block public streets, taking them over, in an attempt to…well, actually, we aren’t sure what the point is. No one in attendance seems to know, either.
These “takeovers” have become an epidemic in California, with places like Oakland in Northern California, and Los Angeles in Southern California being targeted hot spots. In case the message hasn’t been clear, Corvette Forum is staunchly anti-takeover. As far as we’re concerned, these idiots can take their dumb asses over to a race track. Of course, we’re willing to bet that these same folks would get lapped on a road course, or schooled at a real drift event.
