I'm not entirely sure who the jackass is in this particular scenario.

Not to excuse his actions but:

She claims that the road conditions are wet and slick so she doesn't want to speed.  Given the results of speeding and swerving being a crash, she may be correct.

There was apparently enough distance/time for her to get far enough past the car she was passing for him to pass them, cut to the right lane, and then pass her.  Plenty of time for her to get over, let him by, and then move back over to the left lane for her turn.

If it's so dangerous to be on the wet roads, taking care not to wreck.  It should be too dangerous for her to be taking one hand off the wheel and grab her cell phone.  At which point she then finds the app, and aims the phone in his general direction.  Even if she wasn't watching what was being recorded while driving.  That isn't safe driving.  It's damn dangerous.  If the conditions are so bad.

She says on the video and articles that she's made recordings like this before which tells me that she is a passive-aggressive left lane Nazi with AW tendencies.  I'm curious how many other videos she has on YouTube where drivers are being incited to road rage.

When performing road rage from a truck -it's best to do it at night. That way you can flick on your brights while tailgating.

Meh, left lane nazis' make my blood boil but I don't taunt them and do stupid crap like wrecking my car. Then again I drive a SRT8 so blowing them up with that load as hell exhaust is kind of fun.

If LE actually enforced 'slower traffic keep right' we could fix a few traffic problems in tis country.

No, no, no. This is Fark. If you're driving in the left lane, it doesn't matter how fast you're going. If the car behind you wants to go faster, that's your problem, and you'd better let them pass you or you're wrong.

Also, someone in the right lane going exactly the speed limit is a hazard to everyone else on the road. I've been told this many, many times.

Yeah, guy drove like a dumbass and paid for it, but that women needs her ass kicked.
 
2014-03-28 09:42:38 AM  
I'm on the fence with this one so I took out the AW tendencies of her, her propensity to endanger others with her vertical video stupidity while driving and the fact she was pretty much hogging the lane and I am left with this: Unless we're missing something he is in the wrong. Feelings don't matter, the 'coulda/shoulda/woulda' actions mean nothing. If the law specifies she did nothing wrong that's that.

As much as I hate left lane hogs Bubba McRedneck passed her on the right, forgot about the physics of a vehicle with an automatic transmission, a vehicle with excellent engine braking and discovered what happens .When you suddenly decelerate from a moderate speed in a lower gear on a slick road. Couple that with the empty bed and he looped it, very well I might add.

Now it would have been funny if he's spun out and caused her to wreck as well. That would have been the old 2 birds with one stone idea.

And this. Lots of passive aggressive narcissistic assholes out there that feel it's their duty to slow down anyone that is going faster then they are. As the video proves, this creates just as much road rage as the speeding dickhead.

/Aggressive driver, but moves to the right for faster cars.
 
2014-03-28 09:45:33 AM  
Nothing is worse than those jackasses that won't yield to the right, especially on the highway. I find that they tend to be from New York or New Jersey.

On a 3 lane highway, you shouldn't be going UNDER the speed limit in the extreme left lane, forcing everyone to pass you on the right. I have a pretty hefty commute and see this all the time.
 
2014-03-28 09:45:57 AM  
Roads with intersections every few hundred yards don't have fast lanes.  I'm not going to weave in and out of traffic to make my turn just so you can drive a couple miles and hour faster than me.  Even if you are a big tough guy in a truck.

Coming up meaning the next 1/4 mile or sometime eventually in the next 5 miles I will have to turn left so I will just stay in the left lane until then no matter what?

Before all of the self righteous blow hards arrive to proclaim that they are doing the speed limit so they don't have to move, I would like to provide the following link.  http://www.fredericksburg.com/News/FLS/2006/022006/02092006/166829   In this link there is a statement from the Virginia State Police.  "Leave it up to police officers to deal with any violations they might be committing. We'll handle that," he said. "But the law still requires you to move to the right and let them pass."

That means that unless you are a LEO, you don't get to decide to enforce the law.  No!  Not yours!  3.bp.blogspot.com

To clarify a common misconception:

Passing on the right is legal so long as the road is 2+ lanes in the direction of travel.

Passing on the right laws should be called passing on the shoulder laws.

For those who missed it, there is no "passing lane" on this road.  She was planning on making a left turn so getting over into the right lane would not have been the proper move.

Also happy to see a road-raging, tailgating douche get what's coming to him, and glad he didn't hit other vehicles in the process.

As is so often the case when stories make it to Fark, there is no one here who isn't a stupid idiot. Ragey Mc Tantrumpants and Miss ICanUseMyPhoneAndDriveCauseImGettingEVIDENCEofBADDRIVING both suck at driving.

Story would've been better had she also wrecked due to distracted driving. Or had she shown the video to the police and been given a big fat ticket for phone usage.

No injuries of course.

Not around here.
The driver of a vehicle may overtake and pass another vehicle on the right only under conditions permitting such movement in safety. Except where driving on paved shoulders is permitted by lawfully placed signs, no such movement shall be made by driving on the shoulder of the highway or off the pavement or main traveled portion of the roadway.

If you're in that much of a goddamn rush to get where you're headed, leave five minutes earlier.  There are going to be other cars on the road and you can't read the minds of those drivers.  Some of them are going to be annoying to you because they are searching for a location or they are distracted or they are stupid.  Get over it, and know that your sense of driving skill superiority is thoroughly voided when you drive like a jackass in retaliation.

Failure to pay full time and attention since she is more concerned with videoing the guy driving behind/beside her and then being sure to record him crashed.

I wonder if Fl. can issue her a ticket NOW for distracted driving since it is BLATANT that she is using a cell to record video while moving.  There is NO ambiguity about whether or not she was recording.  If recording of a police officer can be used as evidence, shouldn't this count against her?

I second this.  It is simply a four lane road, not an interstate.  There is a five lane road that I take to work that if I'm not in the lane I need 1.5 miles away from my turn, I'm not making my turn.  And I still get people riding my butt when I'm already stuck behind someone else.  I hope he stands as an example to others that if you don't have patience, you don't have license.

How is what you wrote inconsistent with what I wrote?

Passing on the right is legal if it's a travel way, it's illegal if it's a shoulder absent extenuating circumstances.

I'm not familiar with this stretch of road, but it doesn't even look like a limited access highway where all the "slower traffic keep right" stuff comes into play. People make left turns on these roads (unless you're in New Jersey of course) so the left lane is for everyone's use.
