Police: Trucker’s Dash Cam Video Not Enough To Bring Charges Against Motorist


Cedar Rapids police say that they have no plans to charge a motorist for an apparent road rage incident with a semi that was captured on dash cam.

In the video captured on December 22 on Highway 30 in Cedar Rapids, you can see a white car pulling directly in front of a semi and then slowing rapidly, forcing the truck driver to slam on her brakes to avoid a collision. The motorist appears to be motivated by road rage.

The video has since gone viral, garnering tens of thousands of views on YouTube and social media sites.

The Cedar Rapids Police Department says that they, too, have seen the video, but that they don’t plan on doing anything about it. They told the truck driver involved in the incident that they do not plan to press charges against the motorist because no officer was physically on the scene to witness the incident.

A representative from the city of Cedar Rapids claimed that it would be hard to justify the expenditure of the police resources that would be needed to press charges against the motorist for a mere traffic violation.
