Why is it that “performance” car drivers can’t seem to drive in their own lane?

I was just out on a short errand, driving on our local two-lane country roads.  As I came into a curve (with no visibility of oncoming traffic) I was nearly hit head-on by a BMW that wasn’t just over the center yellow line, but fully in my lane.

I understand that the road is more fun if you cut to the inside of every curve.  I understand that if you spend that kind of money for your sport suspension that it’s a gas to take the curves at the maximum speed possible.

But why in the world do you think it’s OK to drive in the other guy’s lane on the inside of a blind curve?

Strangely enough, it seems that the more money a person spends on superior handling capabilities, the less likely they are to be able to handle their steering wheels competently.

    Was it the FAA chief driving the Bimmer?

    As a BMW driver I appoliize on behalf of all BMW drivers. We’re not all jerks.l must admit I have difficulty understanding the thoughts of people who purchase expensive vehicles and believe it grants a license to drive irresponsibly.
