The Hamptons are notorious for having some of the worst drivers on planet earth descend upon it during the summertime. The reason for this is because rich people from Manhattan, who never have any reason to drive a car during the fall, winter or spring, suddenly decide that they are capable of driving tremendously large SUVs or street legal sports cars worth half-a-million dollars, around town with no problems.
I think that yesterday’s head-on crash into Norah’s, right in the middle of Southampton Village, makes this point pretty well. A black Jeep Wrangler Sahara, somehow, at 5:30 p.m. yesterday, rolled over some flower beds in the middle of town and then smashed through the front entrance of the store. Nobody was injured, the driver had no comment.
How in the world do you crash head-on into a store? Like…how does that happen? And it would seem that at least once a year, it happens in the Hamptons. I can remember in 2011 when a car smashed right through the Carvel in Bridgehampton. Who the hell is giving these drivers licenses?
I’m not 100 percent sure yet that the Jeep last night was driven by a citiot, but I’d bet money that it was.
Be careful out there, you Wall Street titans and other masters of the universe, money doesn’t make you an expert behind the wheel.
