I'm surprised that video wasn't from Pennsylvania, cause I see people holding up the passing lane every single day.
If the pickup and the camera car were doing what they were supposed to be doing, this video would have been 3 minutes of the back of a pickup truck and at some brief point a camaro would flash by in the left lane.

I would have just let him pass initially or switched to the right lane to let him pass. What's up everyone's butt?

You can clearly see that there is a slower car's shadow in front of the pick up. The pickup only blocks the lane after the ******* in the camaro intentionally tries to ram him onto the shoulder. For all the **** that flies on this site, I'm fairly shocked that some of you are defending the camaro, who first attempted to ram a truck off the road, and then actually did ram two trucks off the road.

I have two basic thoughts about it.

1) The Camaro driver was being an *** hat for initially trying to squeeze his way into a very narrow spot BEFORE either came alongside the semi. If you look closely in the video, you can see the shadow of the car just in front of the truck. Accordingly, the truck was in an appropriate position as "next in line" behind that car to pass the semi, and there was nowhere near enough room for the Camaro to have gotten in in any manner other than to have basically jumped right in the truck's face and then immediately hit the brakes before hitting the car in front of the truck. Given, total ******* move!

2) The highway is NEVER the place to play head games with people (especially around a semi ). Any time someone gets the idea that they are being righteous about exacting some kind of justice on another driver for their bad behavior (ex: the truck pacing the semi to block the Camaro from passing), then they too are entering into the game playing and are ultimately just as guilty as the initially offending party for any ensuing mayhem. The real lesson here is simply DON'T PLAY GAMES, not he shouldn't this or he shouldn't that.

I say this having just completed a drive from St Louis to Oakland in a loaded minivan last week. It was fully 2200 miles and 28 driving hours spent on Interstates 70 and 80 over the course of 2 days with one night's stop-over in Denver (to enjoy some Great Divide barrel aged Yetti at the source. ) I made fantastic time on the road, averaging over 78mph (including time spent stopping for sit down lunch/dinner, refueling, and **** breaks), and ultimately passed virtually everything on the road that I came across, all the while, never once pissing anyone off (that I could ever tell), but then I never tried anything like the squeeze play the Camaro driver did, nor did I feel I needed too.

There's never a need for games. You can still make fantastic, even extra-legal, time without being a jackass, and everyone gets home safe and sound.

EDIT: I type too slow. Enginerd caught the lead car shadow too.

Exactly, the Camaro was always an ******* while the truck driver decided to play along. Camaro dude ought to be getting a criminal driving citation, but the truck driver better be getting a ticket as well. The car initially in front of the pickup truck is gone within the first 30 seconds, why not the truck?

If your car don't have blue and red lights on the roof you have NO authority over any other driver on the road. No matter what they do, you have no right to purposefully impede their progress. In my mind, you are a bit mental for choosing to do so, because people are unpredictable, stupid, and nuts. This video is the perfect example of how dumb people can be.

I recently read a little tech article about how Google has gotten their driverless cars to recognize cyclists' hand signals.

As a cyclist, I find the notion that we consistently use hand signals to be humorous.

And this brings to mind the general notion about how conditions on actual roads are often imperfect. Granted, software can do amazing things, but I spent many years torture-testing the firmware and software of a relatively simplistic networked audio system (one which always operates in essentially ideal conditions in a closed network made from homogeneous, single-source hardware), and the brightest parts of my day were making it fail in hilariously unexpected ways.

Fortunately, in my job, software failures didn't result in death.


A large part of driving a car involves picking up and processing subtle and apparently ambiguous clues. While I generally hesitate to describe complex neurological processes as "intuition," our brains do seem to be wired so as to effortlessly perform tasks which nearly defy description, much less coding.

Like tossing a ball, for instance. Is it a baseball or a whiffle ball? How's the wind? Are we tossing uphill? Is the intended catcher moving? We don't have to do a lot of discrete measurement to determine these things, we just sort of pick up the ball and toss it. Or, in the case of a bowling ball, elect not to toss it based on the understanding that the person to whom we would toss it would probably not appreciate the gesture.


Or, put another way, driverless cars scare me. They scare me even more than Ellen Brody, who murdered five people in February by slowly and deliberately driving her Mercedes SUV onto the tracks of the Metro North railroad (the one I ride every weekday) *after* the gates had come down.

While yes, the camaro was trying to squeeze into a tight spot, there was room to get over until the truck driver drove himself onto the shoulder, sped up, and blocked him from merging.

Then he purposely blocked him for the remainder of the video and achieved ragemode.

I'm not saying the camaro driver was in the right. But the truck driver clearly blocked him, then prevented him from just driving on. He escalated that situation and his actions were to blame for what happened next when the camaro driver went full on Kamakazi.

It looked like the truck even sped up after the Camaro was trying to pass in the median, in an attempt to keep him from passing. I guess it worked. He should be sooo proud.

I try to remember that the other guy
1. probably has poor judgement
2. might have less to live for
3. might actually be crazy
4. may be in a borrowed/stolen/uninsured car they don't give a **** about
5. might be drunk or on drugs
6. will flee because of warrants/suspended license/intoxicated/uninsured/drugs in car

Every 2nd or 3rd accident around here seems to be a hit and run.

I called and spoke to the arresting officer and told him that I witnessed the chase and the vehicles were different and I had proof via my dashcam and pics, and officer is saying "NO, I got the right Person".

I told him about the pics and dash cam footage I had and about the differences between the 2 cars and he is stating I am wrong. I offered to bring in my footage and he says he doesn't want it?!

WTF?!

How do I find out who the guy who got arrested is and who his lawyer is so I can get this video to him? At this moment things are sounding very sketchy and I would rather do this Anonymously now.
