Karma is a Bitch…

You know what they say about karma, right? This video is a good example of how badly things can go wrong for road bullies.

It shows a man driving a big fat Ford F-250 truck (apparently) intimidating and tailgating another driver on the fast lane, and then overtaking on the wrong side of the road while giving a rude hand gesture. What happened next, well, let’s just say karma struck gold.

A few things to point out here. First, tailgating another road user in such an intimidating manner is clearly wrong. One should always keep a safe distance to the car ahead, so you can, if necessary, stop safely or manoeuvre out of the way to avoid a collision. This is even more important if you’re driving a heavy vehicle with a longer stopping distance.

Next, overtaking on the slow lane, or “undertaking.” This should not happen either. Nor should a motorist ever give others the finger for being blocked. While we’re at it, let’s not block others, shall we? And for the love of God, don’t try to record a video while you’re driving. It’s all common sense.

We should all respect each other and be courteous on the road. If others decide to break the speed limit, let them pass and allow the traffic police to deal with them. Ideally, one should always drive defensively while keeping an eye out for erratic drivers. The key is just not to react to such errant drivers. It’s just not worth it.
