Cutting someone off in traffic, while itself is rude, inconsiderate and not to mention, dangerous, should never degenerate towards something as ridiculous as this. The driver of the black Nissan crossover unfortunately had other plans.
The incident kicks off with the white Ford Explorer blatantly cutting off the Nissan, forcing its driver to ride the shoulder in order to avoid making contact. We have to admit, that was a pretty monumental gaffe, especially with such good visibility.
Yet, did it warrant what came next? We’d like to think not, especially since the two vehicles may have ended up colliding, something that possibly happened around the 2:03 mark of the video. The Nissan driver seems to be the aggressor, every step of the way – they even made sure to overtake the Explorer after the Ford managed to jump ahead briefly.
Eventually, the Explorer did manage to stop ahead of the Nissan by pulling off onto the shoulder, although that’s when the dashcam car began to lose sight of the action. Whether the two drivers got out of their cars and continued their altercation in a hand to hand manner is unknown.
What we do know is that the owner of the Tesla Model 3 called the police seconds after losing sight of the two SUVs. Should they have done so a lot sooner? Most definitely.
The action took place on Route 32 in Columbia, Maryland, where the fine for reckless driving can be anywhere from $510 to $1,000. Hopefully a judge will get to take a look at this footage and hand out the max.
