Sorry J99 but the driver in the Cam Car is driving like an idiot.
In the beginning of the video, the cam car moves left to "pass" the cars merging onto the highway. This is perfectly legal, and a common courtesy if it can be done safely. Around 8 seconds, a minivan decides to overtake a car, a semi and 2 other cars.
Agreed. The minivan is in front of the cam car overtaking traffic on his right.
They eventually remember to "keep right" after they have overtaken to let the cam car pass. Thank God somebody can drive reasonably well.
HOLD ON THERE....The mini-van is in the left lane obstructed by the car in front of him...He obviously wants to over take the car in front as well. However, Cam Car is riding the minivan's rear so he pulls to the right. Cam Car is now "pissed off at the mini van? For what?
Once the cam car passes that van, there is another van camping out in the left lane, passing NO ONE. This irritates the cam car, and he passes at high speed on the right.
Perhaps you are right... a little hard to tell. He did linger for a full 30 seconds in the left lane....but he was closing on the traffic ahead in the right lane...hard to tell speed and distances...but now Cam Car is outraged by losing 30 seconds?
Then the video comes to a little car camping out in the left lane going very slowly. This little car again is passing NO ONE.
You need to review the footage again....That little car had just passed two cars in the right lane and was closing on the third when the cam car runs right up his ass.
Again, the cam car is pissed and tailgates, which as I have said, is VERY dangerous and very illegal.
Agreed - showing a lot of aggression on a car that is simply in the process of passing three others.....perhaps not a quickly as the Cam Car would like.....but the Cam Car has no right of way at this point. Displaying the typical....I want to go faster...get out of my way attitude.
This little car should have been mindful of their rear view mirror of potentially fast moving traffic, and changed to the right lane, but they didn't. They decide to push the cam cars buttons.
Completly wrong....the little car was in the process of passing the third car. The are not at all pushing the cam cars buttons...the cam car is pushing the little car...almost literly
Then the little car "brake checks" the cam car, again this is extremely dangerous, and extremely POINTLESS because should have kept right to begin with if they wanted to drive half the speed limit.
Yes brake check is almost as assinine as tailgating. But what gives you the impression that he is driving slow...he appears to be the second fastest car in the video and was in the process of overtaking three cars. The cam car has no tolerance for anyone driving slower than his desired pace...typical lane weaver. His attitude simply get the hell out of my way.
I am not justifying any of the behavior in this film, it is not mine, and I just found it on YouTube.
The purpose of this post was to illustrate human behavior on the roadways when "keep right" laws are not followed.
If everyone in this film kept right except to pass, there would be minimal, if any, speeding and virtually NO aggressive driving at all.
Notice that at the beginning of the video that the driver of the cam car is calm and courteous, and is only going crazy AFTER these little pukes in the left lane piss him off
I see moderatly heavy traffic with several cars passing others...I see a cam car get all pissed off and driving aggressively with very little courtesy or tolerance for those that are simply passing at a slower pace then he wanted. All within a period of about 1 minute. I suspect he was speeding...but hard to tell why everyone else on the road was driving considerably slower. I guess they all just wanted to piss him off.
