Sometimes, karma can be a [email protected] We absolutely love these and we know you do too, especially when those getting the karma are drivers who totally disregard other road users and traffic law.
In this particular video recorded by a dashcam on Highway 59 in Houston, Texas, we see an all too familiar sequence of bumper to bumper traffic. All drivers were slowly crawling forward, except one person in a previous-generation Mercedes S-Class.
At one point, the luxury sedan goes ahead of the dashcam car and the rest of the pack by using the central shoulder lane. And it did look like the impatient driver would get away with it. The problem was the S-Class also overtook a police car.
That makes it very easy to anticipate what happened next. As the video continues, the S-Class was stopped on the shoulder with the cop car behind it. Whatever reason the luxury car driver had to be in a hurry didn’t matter much for the police officers who stopped them in their tracks.
We don’t know if the fine will convince this driver not to do something similar in the future. However, we’re pretty sure they’ll remember being getting caught in the act with hundreds of drivers passing by.
Here’s hoping this video will convince other drivers not to cheat their way through traffic. It’s not just disrespectful toward other road users – it can also be quite expensive when you’re caught.
