Watch As This Man With Road Rage Gets Dose of ‘Instant Karma’ (Viral Video)

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


This videographer going by the username Florida Driver posted video Wednesday, saying that she’d been tailed by the truck driver for three minutes.


“After about a minute, and me shaking my head, I pulled out my phone and started recording. I couldn’t move over because there were trucks in the right lane, and I sure as heck wasn’t going to speed on a rainy day with the roads being as slick as they were. I was turning left in about a half-mile when this happened,” the driver wrote.


“Now bear in mind, that this guy had already passed a truck in a left turn lane, was tailgating and driving recklessly on a wet slick road, wasn’t paying attention, and all in all being an ignorant [A**].


In the full video which I will post later, you will be able to see that not once was I mouthing off, I never brake checked him, and in fact until I watched the video after the accident I didn’t even know he shot a bird at me because I wasn’t looking at him at all, I was paying attention to the road while holding the phone up with my right hand,” the driver continued.


Watch as the man driving the black Ford pickup truck passed this driver and changed lanes, he lost control and spun out into a grassy median.


“That’s what you get,” the woman filming yelled as she laughed.


Watch what the incident as it unfolded (Content warning: offensive hand gesture):




 According to the driver who recorded the footage, the man in the truck fled the scene but with the video, law enforcement were able to identify and charge the driver.


“This moron could have easily killed somebody with his moronic behavior, and my laughing at the end would have been replaced with tears. Needless to say though, I’ve never seen Karma come back so fast,” the videographer wrote.

      When I view this video, it looks like the driver filming this actually caused it by blocking the passing lane. Look how long the pickup truck was patiently waiting to get by while this butthead was poking along in the passing lane.

      • onlysixshooter

        You are retarded, Of course you are who else would say such a thing.
        This wanker got what he had coming, his reckless driving caused this. She was maintaining a consistent speed. it was his job to to keep in control of his own vehicle, if you look closely you will notice he started sliding out before he had completely over taken her..he probably spun out because he had one had on the wheel and the other hanging out the window flipping the lady off with his fat mug smiling keeping him distracted from focusing on his driving..

        Well when I view this video, it looks like that..

        • Anonymous

          You have just proven that you don’t know the rules of the road and have no business behind the wheel of an automobile yourself. Maybe you and the left lane hog can ride the bus and help keep the roads safer?

        • plsnogod


          sounds like you have a spot of rage yourself.

          if you think she was correct in blocking the overtaking lane,and acting as a defacto police officer,i can only assume:

          a. you do not drive.
          b. if you do drive,you are not very good at it.

        • taptaptap

          the rules of the road, the law has a posted speed limit, if the driver was doing the posted speedlimit, he had the right to be there. i guess in your mind you have the l out your gun and shoot him for not driving over the speed limit and breaking the law. if it were me i would of pulled the emergency brake and now be owning his house and all the rest of his property, i hope you tail gate me

      • Apolitical Blues

        While I agree the “left lane hog” should have gotten out of the way of faster traffic…the law in most states, the bugger eating moron in the pick-up got what he deserved.

        • onlysixshooter

          I don’t care what you say “anonymous” you are too afraid to even reveal a pseudonym so how can one take you seriously. You sound like a troll.

          Either way this guy was driving like a bloody wanker and almost killed people, if it wasn’t for his rage and lack of driving control this would not have happened.
          If he had kept his cool and if she was in the wrong just filmed her instead of risking the lives of others this wouldn’t have happened.
          To blame this lady is just plain ignorant. You are just trying to play the devils advocate.
          I pray you don’t get your license because if you condone his behaviour then you are such a moron.

    • ZuNn

      Put down the phone and move over

    • Sister

      The retard doing the filming should have gotten a ticket also!!!! Hey you stupid freak did you read the part in the driving manual that said SLOWER TRAFFIC KEEP RIGHT!?!?! And put down your cell phone it was a stupid retarded inbred like you that got my husband’s best friend killed.

    • estanislao

      This chick is probably a Democrat.
      1) actually baiting the drama, 2) feels she’s in the right, 3) knows she’s wrong so she attempts to lie her way out of it with justifications.

      • nox

        Definitely a Liberal/DemocRAT.

    • ElOregonian

      Stupid people on both sides deserve ridicule. One, for not pulling over to the slow lane and letting the other driver pass, and for using her cell phone while operating a motor vehicle. And the other driver for being impatient and allowing his anger to overtake commonscense.

      I will bet you that the original poster removes this video.

      • LittleMissSunshine

        You’re close.

        She disabled comments on the video. She was “shocked” that people thought she was a moron. Which she is. I don’t think she realizes that she actually caused the accident, which makes her even more dangerous on the road. Somebody could’ve gotten hurt or killed–and she laughs about it!

        • nox

          I’m not surprised of her move. It’s sickening how women always think everything is men’s fault. Makes me furious just thinking about it. However, i’m sure she has her ever loyal white knight manginas giving her comfort.

    • Theodorizer

      You don’t know how they drive in Sweden’s highways, it’s like video game driving, you can go on 70mph sections 90 – 100 mph with little or no control. There are then of course those who are intent to make road-selfies of themselves going even above that. A long line of bumper to bumper drivers pass over you if you drive the regular 70mph. In USA that kind of offender would fly into jail, but in Sweden you pay only fines or lose your license for some months or a year, if anyone bothers to watch your driving. Not so many years ago Sweden had lower speeds than in Finland where I live, but now that the limits are heaved up, the young boys and grannies as well enjoy the speed game.

    • Anonymous

      Yeah, I hope the driver of the pickup sees this video because it provides the proof that the cell phone idiot broke the law by detaining other traffic and caused the whole thing. “Half mile” my butt. You can see how long she was blocking this guy. She should have had that cell phone stuffed up her buzzoo.

    • Rickster

      Most states do have laws regarding left lane use. She started it off by hogging the “passing” lane! At 50, she was in the left lane for nearly 2 miles AFTER she started filming! Who knows how long BEFORE she started playing with her cell phone? She should also be cited, in my opinion.

    • Don't be hating!

      I love it..Dam BULLY got what he deserved. REDNECK SHEEP!

      As for the DRIVER she won’t be so lucky next time!

    • orangesky

      I disapprove of using one hand for recording, but she didn’t do anything wrong you dipsticks.

      I don’t know what the posted speed limit was, but she showed she was going almost 60 mph. … There were indeed two pickups/trucks in the right lane (if not, why did the Ford not pass on the right?? that is allowable). She didn’t speed up to get around them, but that is not required.

      Slower vehicles keep right? Yes, but always and immediately?? Don’t be stupid. She would have had to brake to get behind the first truck, and merging back inbetween the two trucks would have been unwise. Not to mention illegal (following too closely).

      The Ford driver was patiently waiting to pass??? You friggin dipwad.

      I know for a fact (well, it’s intuition. but come on …) that those that blame the videographer have retarded ideas on how to drive correctly, and are part of the vast and growing problem of stupid drivers.

      Impatience has no place on public roads. Just take a deep breath and driver slower, people. Leave a couple minutes early and enjoy the drive.

      • plsnogod

        you are so wrong.

        she was obviously piously trying to create an incident. she should be off the road.

    • The Real Deal

      I totally agree that the cell phone driver baited the pickup driver. However once the p/u was able to get around her, he should not have said anything or flipped her the bird. He should have sped up a little then safely got in front of her and went on with his business. i think this guy road raged one too many times and it cost him. The cell phone driver is a very impolite driver and if she felt the roads were that unsafe to go a little faster, THEN SHE SHOULD HAVE MOVED OVER IN TO THE SLOW LANE!

      • LittleMissSunshine

        She said the roads were slippery. It looks like he tried to pass her, but she SPED UP at 1:09. So he had to increase his speed to pull up in front of her. (So when he passed her the 2nd time, he flipped her the bird, for speeding up to prevent him from passing–which is understandable).

        You can see at 1:28 that he was actually trying to get to the left turn lane. Since they were both going faster, he had less time and distance (and less control at a higher speed on slippery roads) to actually get into the turn lane. She originally showed that she was going 50 mph, and she sped up; you start hydroplaning at about 35 mph.

        So he had to pull up in front of her and then try to quickly get into the left turn lane. With the slippery roads, going 50+ mph, in a pickup with a much lighter back end, AND going in at a tight angle to get into the turn lane, he started to fishtail, then hit the sign on the median, then spun out.

        So basically, she’s a jerk for speeding up. And by doing so, she caused the accident. She thinks he got what was coming to him, but I’d say based on this, her karma is much, much worse.

        • The Real Deal

          “It looks like he tried to pass her, but she SPEED UP at 1:09.” – LittleMissSunshine

          I totally agree with you there. She looks like she was purposely trying to keep him from passing. Thus, goes along with my calling her an “impolite driver’.

          ” (So when he passed her the 2nd time, he flipped her the bird, for speeding up to prevent him from passing–which is understandable). ” – LittleMissSunshine

          Though i wouldn’t have done that…I can’t blame him.

          In the second and third paragraphs you mention that she hindered him from getting in to the left turn lane that he sought. In my opinion, had he waited a few seconds behind her…he could have safely maneuvered into his left turn lane, but he chose instead to waste time while passing her to give her ignorant hand gestures and yell obscenities before speeding up and quickly trying to get into a turn lane he could have (as i stated before) merged in to safely BEHIND HER, rather than trying to show her up by making unsafe lane changes, etc.

          I value your opinion, but i disagree on a few things.

        • LittleMissSunshine

          @Jay R

          Understood, and thanks for your reply.

          I agree, he could’ve waited. But he’s also a young guy, and obviously doesn’t have as much experience or wisdom as you do. He may have felt that it would be rude to hit the brakes right after the other truck driver had let him into the right lane. And they seem to have traveled about a couple miles during the video alone, which was plenty of time for him to pass her and get into the turn lane.

          Guys tend to be more goal-oriented and focused on a specific task (it’s how their brains are wired). He’d been trying to pass her for awhile, and was probably intensely focused on waiting for an opening; once the driver on the right let him in, he just went for it–instead of realizing he could’ve just waited. Again, experience and wisdom. But SHE made the turn dangerous for him by speeding up, under those road conditions. He could’ve also hit bystanders–or oncoming traffic head-on, since he ended up on the other side of the road.

          The bottom line is that when you see somebody driving like he was, you DON’T aggravate them like she did. (It can also get you hurt.) In the passing lane, you either speed up or move over. You DON’T speed up when someone tries to pass you. She’s a dangerous and stupid driver, and was screwing with him, big time. She caused the accident.

    • westgate

      Here’s a little insight; you go 50 in the left lane, of course you’re going to have traffic piling up behind you. The woman was impeding normal traffic flow.

    • Earthmuffin33

      Not to be rude, but just for the record you were driving in the fast lane which is a No No. It’s only meant for passing. and in our state ( Illinois) you can get a ticket for staying in the fast lane too long. that’s why he gave you the finger. No offence but this whole thing was your fault. and The video :roll: proves it. Sorry

    • De L\'eau

      She was SPEEDING UP when he tried to pass her… WHAT A COW!

    • TombRaider

      There was ball busting on both sides but the woman filming was definitely trying to aggravate the guy.

      Speed: If you look closely, she wasn’t going that slow as she passed a truck and a car. She did film her speed which was 50mph and I don’t know what the speed limit was on that road.

      The bozo in the truck was clearly an ass ultimately loosing control of his truck.

      The woman was clearly paying more attention to the truck and video then anything else and is very lucky she didn’t slam into anyone causing a major accident.

    • orangesky

      You idiots! No wonder the roads suck out there. You are all so effing f’d!

      Look at the spedometer at the :37 mark … she is going 57ish mph. We have NO IDEA what the speed limit is, so how on earth do we know she is going too slow? Hey Illinois, how fast are you supposed to go once you’re in that “passing” lane???? BTW, Illinois is where I saw some of the most mindless driving.

      Of course it is not entirely possible to see in the video what happens at the 1:09 mark, my guess is he slowed down (instead of her speeding up) once he saw she was recording this. He is pretty clearly looking at her and trying to engage her with his poignant hand gesture. Does it seem likely (given “the bird”) that he was trying to get around her and put this behind him, or was he determined to continue his expression of displeasure with her for not complying with his every wish??

      I don’t know what happened before this video starts, but during the video he is most certainly tail-gaiting. That is an absolute jackhole move. Anyone who says tail-gaiting is not the behavior of a short-sighted, reckless, impatient jerk-of-a-driver, is likely the aforementioned themselves.

      To be clear, a cam-dash camera is the only way to go. I am soooo against phone conversations and texting and recording while driving. Well, in city traffic to be sure.

      • hoby

        “You idiots! No wonder the roads suck out there. You are all so effing f’d!”
        –Yes, that proves your point so effectively. You must be right.

        “Look at the spedometer at the :37 mark … she is going 57ish mph.”
        –The speedometer clearly reads 50 mph. And that’s before she speeds up. If she’s on a road where it’s legal to go 50 mph, she’s most likely on the highway. Which means she’s going slower than the flow of the traffic AND sitting in the passing lane.

        “my guess is he slowed down (instead of her speeding up) once he saw she was recording”
        –If that were the case, he would’ve just waited, pulled behind her, and made the turn from behind her. Which he clearly didn’t do.

        1.07 – as he’s trying to pass, you can see him looking in her car as he pulls up ahead of her
        (note, he doesn’t flip her off this 1st time, just looks at her)
        1.09 – she speeds up, preventing him from passing her
        1.12 – you can see him looking into her car in astonishment as she accelerates past him
        1.15 – his car accelerates to try to pass her a 2nd time – wouldn’t do this if “afraid” of filming
        1.19 – he passes her and flips her off for speeding up – wouldn’t do this if “afraid” of filming

        Most people “tailgate” to clue the driver in front to get out of their way. It looks like he was also trying to get enough acceleration to get in front of the truck in the right lane. This is probably what also clued in the other truck that he was trying to get around the idiot in front of him, who was clearly hogging up the passing lane. I don’t like tailgaters, but I also don’t like idiots in the passing lane. His “tailgating” appears to have had a reason.

        But, don’t think about it too much. I wouldn’t want you to hurt yourself.

    • GBCIR

      Her aggressive and ugly behaviour is typical of a menopausal woman that cannot control the testosterone increase.

      Cannabis oil would FIX her.

      • nox

        Women are, in general, more aggressive and abusive than men. Of course, our Jew-controlled media and their whores paint a different picture. Cannot hurt the feeeelings of little damsels, now can we :lol: ?

      • Dacul

        Or maybe she was trying to pick up the guy, but he didn’t get the message…

    • cinoeye

      Left lane is pass only, so he was right about being pissed!

    • taptaptap

      i bet all the gold in the world the agressive driver is a christians tea bagger republican

    • Xebache

      Watch it twice – my 2cents: at about 1’40″ at 50 mph think it’s fair to say she traveled 11/2 miles of highway at best. Since we don’t see what precedes the initial taping we will leave that moot. Her side: clearly shows 2 trucks traveling in right lane, I didn’t see a speed limit sign so I don’t know. Says she didn’t speed up because of rain, yet it looked pretty mild and warm ( I’m up north ). Why she was recording instead of just hitting 55 and moving over is beyond me, however it does appear as if she had to stop at a light or sign perhaps at the end. In which case the speed limit is usually 45 (at least around here). MY thought: I hate being blocked by someone in the left lane – ya know right lane doing 55-58 in a 55 zone and someone gets in the left lane and does 58 and blocks traffic back “forever”. What annoys me the most is the “I’m observing the speed limit” crap without any clue to move over or realize everyone else is lined up. His Side: no real traffic – couple trucks in the right and apparently a middle aged lady :eek: in the right of way :cry: ! Actually in a mnte or so he was clear – instead he went to swoop around the right side to be on his way. What really floors me is the dum @ss slows down just to flip her off :???: :!: Then the clown looses control. WTF! Decision time: Put away the phone – and for heavens sake bud – your a friggin 20 something grown man, don’t flip of a lady for something as dum as driving like crap. We already know most of them do :roll: – Especially if your gonna frig it up 3 seconds later. :lol:

    • Marika

      I was under the impression that the left lane was the passing lane? Why doesn’t she just move over and let him pass? No one was to her right, so it isn’t like she couldn’t get in the right lane (where she belonged, btw-she was only doing 50).

      Yes, the guy over-reacted. But she was baiting him the whole time. Somehow, I think there’s more to this incident than what we see in the video.

    • circuitprotector

      it wasn’t right what this guy was doing but this woman should maybe get some driving lessons. she was only going 50mph on a divided highway that probably has a 65mph speed limit. she is in the left passing lane for no reason why didn’t she move over so the @ss could pass? looked to me like he was just going to keep going until he saw she was filming him. and that’s another thing. its not safe using your phone like that while driving. some states its illegal. then to top everything off she stops in the highway! this woman is a bad driver!

    • PeterPan

      This control freak, being passive aggressive and staying in the passing lane, is an SOB. The only thing she had to do was slow down a bit until the truck in the right lane moved ahead of her and then get over in the slow lane whee she belonged.
      I spent 2 hours daily on my commute to and from work. The behavior that this passive aggressive female driver displayed is typical for the women I encountered on a daily basis. It demonstrates what has ling been known about women.
      I understand why men beat the crap out of some women……I really do.
      Her laughter about the accident demonstrates that she is actually a very hostile person. Most normal people would have been dismayed to see that truck being out of control. Many people could have been harmed.
