This driver in Florida probably got the shock of their life after immediately being pulled over by an unmarked police car in Cape Coral.
The following footage captured on dashcam shows a black sedan travelling down a highway and, to most observers, it looks just like any other sedan, but it is in fact an unmarked police car.
Someone driving what appears to be a dark green sedan suddenly flicks on their indicator and starts to move into the left lane without noticing the police car. The two only manage to avoid a collision thanks to the quick-thinking officer, who is able to swerve across to the left and give the other driver enough room to complete the lane change. The officer then flicks on his flashing red and blue lights and proceeds to pull over the driver.
It’s rather hilarious to watch inattentive drivers get pulled over like this, and, if you drive frequently, you’ve probably had someone try to merge straight into you just like this driver.
Ensuring you don’t change lanes into another vehicle is quite simple. You check your mirrors and turn your head to see if anything is in your blind spot before doing so. Even better, check your mirrors multiple times and if you own a vehicle with a blind-spot monitoring system, there’s really no excuse for doing something like this. Driving on public roads, frequently occupied by distracted motorists, isn’t a race and it’s far better to get to your destination safely than it is to get their quickly while putting others, and yourself, in danger.
