Reckless Mini Cooper Gets Served After Brake Checking a Truck

Posted by: Jesse Kleib on 11/17/2021

If there’s one thing that we have seen a lot of on the roads today that really ends up costing a lot of money, that single factor playing into the equation of accidents everywhere would be impatience. When drivers get all revved up and angry, seeing red when a slight delay in their travel plans comes about, they tend to make some irrational decisions on the spot.

This time, the guy making the bad calls is behind the wheel of a Mini Cooper. Now, I’m not sure what made this driver want to pass a big truck over a double yellow line, coming within mere feet of colliding with oncoming traffic around a blind turn, but the result was all captured on dash cam and I suppose that we will leave that up to you to form your own opinion.

We watch as the car hops back in traffic, going the right way at the very last second but this isn’t where the fun ends. Instead of managing to stay with the pace of the cars around him, the driver punches the brakes, stopping short and getting plowed into by the big truck behind him. Honestly, I’m not really sure what he expected to come of all of this scenario that seems like a stacked up pile of bad decisions that amounted to the only possible outcome here.

Check out the dash cam footage below and tell us if maybe there’s a little something that we’re missing in this one because really, it looks like common sense wasn’t all that common during this collection of maneuvers that ended with a couple of drivers having a ruined day, probably some monetary damages, and the video that we see here.
