There is a rampant car culture in the United States. It seems that the primary rule of the road is that a person believes they are a great driver, while everyone else is not.
A Wisconsin truck driver captured a case of road rage on his dashcam. In the video, an SUV comes down on a driver in the left lane of highway 41 in Little Chute, Wisconsin. After a couple seconds of aggressive tailgating, the driver gets the shock of his life when the victim checks his brakes. The SUV loses control and goes off road before resting in a ditch.
Needless to say, this video has gotten the internet upset, as people took to social media to express how they felt about fellow drives, saying things such as :
“No way I’m waiting to get bashed from behind if I need to maneuver quickly. That wasn’t even a strong brake check! The jackass wasn’t paying attention and overreacted. I doubt the fool learned anything though.”- Bigerat57
“Where would you like the guy to go? Into the other lane where someone is merging onto the freeway? I’m just thinking that would be a stupid move don’t you? Simple said tailgating assholes are simply that, assholes who think they own the road.”- Dertred 9178
“So you think attempted murder is acceptable. If that car would’ve rolled and maybe they were kids in it and someone died. You think it is all OK. You can always decelerate and just take your foot off the gas. Leaving the scene of an accident makes them wrong again.”- Dahlsrider
“Tailgaters constantly demonstrate a supreme lack of both awareness of physical reality and driving skills. A little distance gives room to accelerate for the pass. Why is this lost on so many? Also, a ‘generous’ following distance leaves room for the skilled drivers (a minority) to ‘work their way through’ a series of unskilled, fearful ‘drivers’.”- Hootbah
“If I am driving the speed limit it is my right not to get bullied into moving over so someone else can break the law !”- Rebel
“The lead driver did not change speed, he/she merely touched the brake pedal of their vehicle causing the tail lights to come on. The lead driver did NOTHING illegal. The tailgater however was driving in an illegal manner. Everyone that thinks the lead driver did anything wrong is an idiot and should not be driving.”- Goodlife
“you are what’s wrong with this world , tailgating is wrong but causing an accident and leaving the scene is illegal and immoral.”
