A poorly timed, poorly executed merge puts two truckers in danger in this dash cam clip posted by a truck driver who has just about had enough.
In the clip, a driver is making his way off of one highway and onto another when a fellow driver needs to merge. Instead of yielding to the filming driver and all other traffic already on the freeway, the tanker truck driver decides to take a ‘me first’ mentality.
The tanker truck driver squeezes ahead of the filming rig, barely making a successful merge onto the highway and almost causing a wreck with the filming driver.
“3 times in as many weeks I have nearly been taken out by another ‘professional’ driver. If that drivers happens to see this post, go eat shit,” the filming driver wrote in the caption.
“Yield when merging. Those already on the freeway have the right of way. We learned this in fkn high-school drivers education. How are people like that still on the road???” commented one viewer.
“Think this is state dependent, it was on my California written test that mergers have right of way, and those on the freeway should adjust their speed to those merging,” added another.
You know man, I really think people are just a**holes to me because I drive a Volvo. I don’t remember having near these many problems when I was driving my sexy yellow Pete,” the video poster added.
