An impatient motorist filmed on dashcam driving along the shoulder of a highway to skip traffic in Minnesota were introduced to Karma after being pulled over by police.
The video starts off by showing the cammer traveling down the right lane of the highway heading towards an off-ramp. While traffic in the motorway’s onward lanes was moving very slowly, the right lane was actually going forward at a reasonable pace and you’d assume most motorists would be happy to slow down and sit behind the car in front of them. Not this driver.
At the 10-second mark in the video, a silver sedan comes into view and quickly overtakes the cammer in the service lane. For the next few seconds, it appears as though the driver may have escaped without being seen but shortly afterwards, a Ford Explorer police cruiser can be seen speeding along the shoulder having seen the impatient driver skipping traffic.
The police officer decided against immediately pulling over the offending driver on and instead followed the motorist for a couple of minutes before finding an appropriate place to turn on their flashing lights and give them the fright of their life.
While the motorist who decided to skip traffic didn’t do anything particularly dangerous, we do think they warrant getting some kind of fine. Not only could it deter them from doing this again but perhaps also deter them from other dim-witted driving maneuvers they may feel tempted to do the next time they’re in a rush.
