This submission from one of our regular contributors who owns a kick-ass dash cam shows classic, senseless Los Angeles leapfrogging behavior. Late to work one day because of a slowdown on the freeway? You can likely blame assholes like this moron driving a pickup.
“You know that’s not a lane, right dummy? Notice that solid white line? Yeah, that’s the shoulder and you’re not supposed to use it as a passing lane to gain a one-car advantage. You also need to get your signal lamps checked and repaired because they don’t work. If he wanted to pass, he could have at least accelerated as soon as he switched lanes. This took place on the 71 freeway in Pomona. The driver continued to weave in and out of lanes up ahead, of course without ever signaling. I cut it short because it was barely noticeable on camera.”
Nothing the pickup driver did in this video makes sense. None of it. Yet our roads are filled with asinine drivers like this who driving around like they’re in some friggen video game. These people are so clueless that I bet they would flunk a mandatory driving test if one were to be given by the DMV as a requirement for a driver’s license renewal.
It is important to note however that the driver he passed acted defensively. Note the brake lights? The driver slowed down to let this dickhead in from off the shoulder. Why some of you may ask? It’s never worth your life to teach jackasses a lesson. Protect yourself and your loved ones and let Karma do the work.
