Carkour is a form of driving similar to parkour.

It requires a very thorough understanding of your cars limits and innerworkings such as gear timings, acceleration, and aerodynamics.

Elements of carkour include:
- Parking facing outwards, in the spot the shortest distance from your destination.
- Making a series of turns to avoid red lights of excess length (example: right-turn, u-turn, right turn to bypass)
- Choosing the lane of traffic with the least obstructions
- Driving at or above the speed limit, at all costs, including bypassing hazards, and accelerating at a high rate as required.

Carkour can lead to careless driving when practiced improperly at a novice level, however a true carkour master does not endanger any persons safety while executing maneuvers. It is very difficult to argue the case, however, with a law officer, no matter how in-control of a vehicle you are, and thus careless driving infractions are not unlikely. Therefore, it's noted that carkour should only be performed with a vehicle on uncrowded roads under ideal circumstances.
I have recieved 3 careless driving tickets for practicing carkour in my vehicle over the course of 200,000 miles without ever causing an accident.
