Among the many obnoxious behaviors drivers can display on the highway, lane-weaving is one of the most dangerous.
Far too often we see drivers swerving from one side of the highway to the other in one move, with no regard for other people’s safety — not to mention their own. It’s a reprehensible behavior that gets unpunished most of the time, unfortunately.
However, that wasn’t the case for a previous-generation Toyota Prius driver who thought it was okay to drive diagonally on Interstate 495 in Massachusetts at high speeds like he was a bishop on a chessboard or something.
His stupid maneuver was captured by another driver’s dashcam, and the recording also picked up some unflattering words the cammer had for the culprit. Apparently, the Prius first swerved behind the dashcam car across two lanes and then cut him off.
Much to the cammer’s satisfaction, though, the dashcam also caught the moment an unmarked Chevrolet Malibu police cruiser came flying from behind and went in pursuit of the Prius. The hybrid car then took the exit, immediately after spotting the police car in the rearview mirror.
The lame attempt at losing the tail didn’t work though, as the footage shows the cruiser quickly took the exit as well. We don’t know what happened next, as the cammer continued his journey on the highway towards Lowell.
However, in the video description, he says he regrets not following the police cruiser to film the entire chase. According to the cammer, the Prius driver’s erratic and dangerous behavior might have been caused by the fact that they were running from the law.
