When You Get Denied a Merge, You Deny Back! Colorado Road Rage!

Posted by: Jesse Kleib on 11/17/2021

For some reason, the roadways seem like a place where lots of human personality traits are demoted to their lowest level as people get greedy, angry, and downright overly aggressive when they’re behind the wheel of a vehicle. It’s almost like we take a big step back to the days of cavemen and sometimes, these road rage situations end up being a lot of fun to watch on YouTube.

As much as you might be inclined to think that letting one person hop into traffic in front of you might destroy your chances of being on time, honestly, it’s not going to slow you down that much if at all. This time, though, we watch in on a couple of Colorado drivers who don’t really seem to agree with that theory.

This one starts out like any other merging situation as the camera car attempts to move over a lane and ends up getting straight up denied as the person that they needed to get in front of doesn’t let them enter. However, we watch as the camera car then pops over another lane after successfully merging into the first and the merge blocker is forced to get into that lane as well due to a closure. It’s at this point that the merge blocker gets the favor spit right back in their face.

At the end of the day, this probably amounted to nothing more than a little bit of anger that would end with elevated blood pressure for no reason and it really makes you stop and think about how you personally act behind the wheel when something like this happens. We’re going to end this one by asking you what you would do in a situation like this.
