  • Screengrab via YouTube

Whether you ride a motorcycle or not, you have to admit that this video pretty much sums up what every Florida commuter encounters on a daily basis. Shot with a helmet-mounted GoPro in South Florida and uploaded to YouTube back in May, the rider shows us torrential downpours, panhandlers, close calls in traffic and everything else Florida streets are known for.
