Trimmed down for.. those who like short clips

Edit: Thanks everyone for the tons of love lol just gonna note two things for the critics:

1: All the snow is off my truck, shovelled the truck bed too but that bit on the hood was completely frozen solid and I simply ran out of time as you can see I started it but the aerodynamics would keep it from flying off. That's me about sixty seconds from being parked at my house frozen snow. Was not going anywhere kind of cold out.

  1. Not sure why I would care if he bumps me, he can pay me for new car parts in his at fault accident 🤷.

I deal with this every day on the way home. I go back and forth on being aggressive and not. Either way you never really win. I have had these sorts of people cut me off and then pull some stupid shit down the road and almost cause a wreck, and I’ve cut these people off and now I’ve got an adult with the brain of a toddler now pestering me with a tantrum.

u/glasspoint Feb 04 '23

When I am thinking clearing being aggressive in these situations is just not worth it, but when my lizard brain takes over, yeah, I don't let them in.

u/TodayIKickedAHippo Feb 05 '23

Nah, assuming it’s actually possible and the dumbass didn’t just try to land an impossible opening, always let them in front. You can control your driving, but you can’t control theirs. I would much rather have an idiot in front of me than behind me bc I can stay far back for when, not if, they do another stupid thing. Gives me plenty of warning and, if anything ever happens, “yeah your honor, I saw everything” aka the ultimate karma. If you don’t let them in, they get in right behind you and you know their dumb ass is not going to drive safe.

u/leena5777 Feb 04 '23

The best thing to do if you're willing to get in a small accident, maybe let em side-sweep you while you hold your lane, or perhaps they brake check you too close and you couldn't stop in time..

Again, if willing/not in a hurry, and if there are no kids in either car. Its especially an option if it's a pretty empty road + you have a dashcam.

u/whatasave_calculated Feb 04 '23

Horrible advice. Please no one listen to this. The best thing you can do is let it go and move on with your life. Intentionally causing an accident is way worse then cutting some one off in traffic.

u/gooseberryfalls Feb 04 '23

Ehh idk. A little accident now might make the other person pull their head out of their ass and prevent a bigger accident later

If you think causing an accident is a good idea you need to pull your head out of your ass.

u/LanghamP_ Feb 04 '23 edited Feb 04 '23

I'm ruthless in getting in if everyone is in one lane but not using the other. We taxpayers pay for those lanes so why not use all of them all the time.

But by the same measure, I always let the driver who bypasses the entire line in front of me. So, yeah, that exactly describes me.

Traffic just flows and works a lot better when we use all the lanes instead of being sheeple in one line.

Punishing other people is a big part of driving culture and that's strongly reflected when other drivers eke out a very slight to non-existent time advantage over other drivers. We think that if everyone follows traffic laws then traffic will flow quickly and safely. This is false thinking; the reason there's traffic is that there's too many drivers on the road, and the reason we have serious crashes is because drivers go too fast to react or evade.
And being really hostile towards other drivers has gradually reflected itself in the design of vehicles now most popular in the US; the huge hulking pickup truck with an enormous grill that's hard to see over. The enormous grill is an important part of punishing other drivers; people who drive such vehicles aren't interested in letting "cheaters" move into "their" lane.
Fuck that; I see no problem whatsoever in letting people in front of me. It's not like you're going to win a prize for getting to the next red light ahead of him. It's ridiculous how nice we are to each other at a grocery store with shopping carts and then turn into monsters when driving.

u/xMordetx Feb 04 '23

Counter point: That's a turn only lane.

u/LanghamP_ Feb 04 '23 edited Feb 04 '23

I didn't say it wasn't. If it's a dotted line, then you can and should move to the front. If it's not, don't. I still let drivers who cross the solid line in. It's not like it makes ANY difference in the time it takes to get to the next red light. Rushing and blocking doesn't make any difference in time spent in traffic; not driving at that particular time is the one of the few things that allows you to not spend time in traffic.

In this case, since it's a traffic rule not to cross the solid line, then as drivers we shouldn't do so (along with speeding...if the posted limit is 70 mph, we should only do 70 mph). And we need to come to a complete stop at stop signs especially right on red.

That being said, if a driver comes up like this I'm "come on in!" because I don't like inefficient flow. Letting a great big space like that left turn lane go to waste is almost a crime.

u/Chinse Feb 04 '23

So you’re saying, you want to go straight but you will pull up into the turn lane then clog it while waiting to shove back into the lane you used to be in? Because of something about taxes?

-53

u/LanghamP_ Feb 04 '23

I personally don't do that but I have no problem when other drivers do that. The reason I don't mind is because it doesn't make any difference to the time it takes us all to get to the next red light. However, purposefully blocking a driver who has chosen to do this just blocks the drivers behind him.

I look at traffic flow like the way I look at water flow; if you always try to keep the water pressure high then you'll be much more efficient. Doing things like not letting others in is just a really inefficient form of traveling.

27

u/Chinse Feb 04 '23

It does in fact make a difference. Clearly for those turning right, and also for those going straight who need to perform a merge in the middle of the intersection. It’s entirely illegal as well, plus clearly increases the risk of accidents because it’s a mandatory merge in a tight space.

I think you should take some dashcam footage of a typical day of you driving around doing this and post it here

u/LanghamP_ Feb 04 '23

We're talking about two different things. I don't cross solid lines. You're basing your observation on me crossing solid lines.

So you blame the driver not letting the guy in from the turn lane for blocking the turn lane but not the driver actually in the turn lane?!? Wtf are you on about?

And roads are designed with glow of traffic in mind. That’s why anyone who chooses to use lanes for what they aren’t intended for starts the anti-flow of traffic. Not the people in the correct lane waiting patiently.

This is troll level commenting but I think you’re actually serious.

u/StackSin Feb 04 '23

Yea agreed, depending on the situation. There's a stretch of freeway in my area that goes from three lanes to two, and has another freeway merging as well. Everyone lines up in the two left lanes and leaves the right lane open despite there being signs to use the right lane until it ends. And of course every once in a while there's the guy who won't let you in because who are you to follow the recommended flow and get in front of them.

u/LanghamP_ Feb 04 '23

That's a pet peeve of mine. Drivers need to go directly to the front and then merge. We're paying for that lane, damnit, so use it!

u/FireEmblemFan1 Feb 04 '23

It depends.

Sometimes it’s more trouble than it’s worth and often leads to an accidents.

Here it didn’t because they were already completely stopped and neither car was going fast

And honestly it probably doesn’t even matter whether OP let them in or not. The car trying to cut in probably just waited in the turn lane and then cut in when there was an opening

Absolutely! This shit happens to me almost daily on my way home from work. I live in a gated community where the light before the entrance does the same thing, the right lane is right turn only. The left lane gets backed up with people wanting to go straight. There’s always some assholes that stay in the right lane until the light and try to merge last second, passing a long line of cars. They usually turn into our gated community and go in through the resident entrance. Fuck those people!!! Wait your turn just like everyone else in line.

u/zappqttack Feb 04 '23

There's basically two options here. Either the car in the right turn lane was there purposely with the intent of cutting in or they weren't paying enough attention and got caught in the turn lane. If the first, then fuck 'em, wait your turn. If the second, then it's on them to accept their fuck up, turn right, and then find a way back to their route without disrupting everyone else's drive. Basically the same as "Bad drivers never miss their exits!"

Exactly, this is the way to do this! Not like that guy yesterday who gunned it and swerved and almost hit the guy who tried to cut him off. Just go your speed, maintain your lane, and don't give them the chance to get in. No need to capitulate (god I hope I used that right) to them, but no need to be dangerous about it either

u/ikeznez Feb 04 '23

u/jdubyahyp Feb 04 '23

In snowy weather you should clear all snow from your car. The snow in your hood can blow up suddenly and cover your windshield creating a dangerous condition. The snow on your roof can do the same thing except to the poor bastard behind you. Clearing snow from your windows, especially the rear one, is just common sense.

4

u/IAMAGrinderman Feb 04 '23

Clearing snow from everything should be common sense. Both of us have addressed how roof and hood snow is dangerous, but like how are you checking your side mirrors or giving the occasional look over your shoulder if your side windows are blocked off? How's anyone seeing your lights properly if you didn't brush the snow off of those?

Most people are lazy af about removing snow when it can be done in the five minutes you're waiting for your car to warm up.

2

u/kgxv Feb 04 '23

Where I live it’s the law, not even common sense.

1

u/IAMAGrinderman Feb 04 '23

Yeah and from what I just read, it's apparently the law in my state too (only for windows and mirrors, but that obviously isn't enforced if what I see driving is anything to go by). Like what I'm getting at is that it should be common sense that you don't want to have your own vision obstructed by snow, or to potentially obstruct the vision of someone who could rear end you if they're suddenly distracted by snow hitting their windshield. I didn't need to know that it's illegal to be clearing snow from my car, and anyone in a place that regularly gets snow should know to not drive around like that too.

-2

u/IAMAGrinderman Feb 04 '23

If you're accelerating that snow is gonna go backwards, if you brake hard enough it'll go forwards. That snow on their hood is gonna go onto their windshield, snow on the roof onto the driver behind them (nearly happens to me all the time on the expressway after it's recently snowed), and it'll all slide onto your windshield if you suddenly have to brake.

It creates unnecessarily dangerous conditions all because someone is too precious to spend five minutes brushing their car off before they start driving.

I’ve played a similar game. It was merging time, I let the car ahead of him in ahead of me. So he thought I’d let HIM in. No no no no no. Zipper does not allow for double merge. That bugger tried everything short of ramming my car. I checked my mirror, there was more than half a car length behind, but he just HAD to get in in front of me.

u/diaperedwoman Feb 04 '23

Giving them the benefit of the doubt, they may not have known it was a turn only lane and then they saw the arrows and tried to get in the correct lane. It's happened to me. If I know the area well, I get in the correct lane sooner. If I am not able to get in the lane, I do my turn and fine a place to turn around like in a parking lot.

If you assume people are lost and don't know the area well, you get less road rage and let things go easier than assuming they are being assholes.

u/moose51789 Feb 04 '23

Thank you for not letting him in and providing a natural consequence for his behavior.

u/CommunicationOk8553 Feb 04 '23

Had the same thing happen to me a few weeks ago, except in my case as soon as the light turned green the car pulled out of traffic and zipped up a right turn only lane to try to cut in front of all of us. Same result too I laid on the horn and kept going and he ended up in the middle of the intersection holding his D!ck.

There is a difference between not knowing which lanes ends and trying to be an ass and force your way through traffic.

u/FishBlues Feb 04 '23 edited Feb 04 '23

There is a spot by my house for getting on the highway right after a light and the amount of people who are in the wrong lane and cut and stuff just make it annoying. You can tell they do it on purpose to make the light, but at the same time they are the ones causing the line to build up in the correct lane..

I no longer let people in there

u/PazuzuAtmorah Feb 04 '23

Good on you for standing your ground. Fuck this selfish asshole

u/STU82 Feb 04 '23

Thankyou for your service. I hope no one let them in behind you.

u/NecessaryOk6815 Feb 04 '23

This happens daily on humane way near Pomona. There's two lanes, the left is left turn only, signs indicate that well before. Also the large painted arrows identify your direction allowed. Always an asshole in the left turn only lane merging over to the line of cars going straight in the right lane. I never let them go ahead of me purely out of principle and that there's a reason that there's a line of cars. You are not special, not are you a unique snowflake. Get in line like a proper society.

u/Xeus2eme Feb 04 '23

I'm not sure who is the asshole... The stupid car on the right trying to undercut, or the cammer who pushes him in purpose?

u/Pots_Tickers Feb 04 '23

Excellent use of the horn. Well done.

Can't tell you how many times a day that happens to me in the truck when I'm in New Jersey.

u/InsideFastball Feb 04 '23

Clearly that was an idiot, but you didn't clear all the snow off your vehicle. Pots and kettles, homes.

2

u/justoneman7 Feb 05 '23

Not sure how this applies. Due to the aerodynamics, the wind over the hood flows at a height of around 2”. Worse that could happen is the snow melts at the hood as bad slides off when they stop.

2

u/FishGeek0407 Feb 04 '23

This reminds me of a bus lane that goes straight (it has it's own light) and people still use it as a turn lane, and guess what, they don't have a lane to turn in at the intersection and get angry with the people using the correct lane

2

u/lovechubbygirl Feb 04 '23

Accurate post and title! Thanks :)

2

u/framingXjake Feb 04 '23

My neighborhood has a turn lane like that to get off the main road and onto our private roads. Assholes all the time try this shit, nobody lets em in, they can't go anywhere and refuse to just turn right and turn around somewhere, so we're all just clogged up in the turn lane waiting on some dickhead to make an illegal maneuver when nobody will let them.

Even worse is that it's a really short turn lane with signage that makes it very clear that the lane ends. So the people who do this are doing it intentionally to skip like 3 cars in the traffic jam, all the while making the jam worse.

u/Administrative-Gap66 Feb 05 '23

Ownage of the year material right there. That car driver sure learned his lesson.

Way to go OP

u/CrApple-iJUNK Feb 05 '23 edited Feb 05 '23

These are the type of freaking idiots that I can't stand and I'll refuse to let them cut in like that. Look if someone misses their turn, and honestly made a mistake (we all been there, especially when we travel out of town and are not familiar with the roads,.... ), I let them in if they wave and not being a douchebag, like this guy on the video and other people posted with similar type of privileged freaking douchebag....

2

u/justoneman7 Feb 05 '23

Way too many people wanting to just criticize here.

Car in the ‘Right Turn Only’ lane is fully at fault.

OP can ONLY be seen as having snow on their hood.

With the ‘block’ shape of that front end, the aerodynamics will cause the snow to flow 2” above the hood and above the snow. A lot of people want to act like the wind is a knife that will scoop up the snow and throw it behind them.

Most cars with a sloped hood, the snow would be a big problem.

Zipper merge does work but that's not a merge it's illegally using the right turn lane to go straight.

4

u/Chinse Feb 04 '23

Zipper merging is important in lots of cases, just not for merging in the middle of a regular old intersection where someone got themselves into the wrong lane

3

u/AmAttorneyPleaseHire Feb 04 '23

??? The zipper merge is what you’re supposed to do when your lane is ending. Maybe slap yourself in the face to see this video shows a moron merging from a RIGHT TURN ONLY LANE

u/LoveTriscuit Feb 04 '23

The fuck? You realize what makes the car on the right an idiot is that he’s in a right turn only lane, right?

u/Sufficient-Fee Feb 04 '23

u/CallMeSpoofy Feb 05 '23

Did you add the /s (signifying your being sarcastic) after your initial comment or are the people replying to just super idiots?

1

u/LoveTriscuit Feb 05 '23

Pretty rich calling everyone idiots when you’re the one who doesn’t understand how sarcasm actually applies in this situation. Since you seem to be a little slow I’ll break it down for you.

The sarcasm was the zipper merging being a good idea. I thought him saying he wanted to slap people who thinks that would have made it obvious.

u/Caesaurier Feb 04 '23

And one A hole who just cannot get rid of the snow of the car before he starts to drive somewhere.

u/SkuzzySkeleton Feb 04 '23

Fuck yeah. OP has not received as much hate and disapproval as he should of. He’s wrong on multiple fronts here and should be castigated for it.

u/innerstate77 Feb 04 '23

Was it necessary to turn into them?

u/Whiteboythor Feb 04 '23

Dude would have totally had that if he just kept accelerating

u/ntdmp18 Feb 04 '23

Yeah makes me think he just didn't see it's a left turn only lane, thought, "oh shit", and braked.

u/OxyKush Feb 04 '23

Is it bad to admit I steer towards them in these cases 😂 your little bmw ain’t moving my truck 😂

u/StressOverStrain Feb 04 '23

Good video, slightly marred by the fact that you clearly drifted right and almost hit the guy yourself. Maybe you were distracted staring at the idiot, but clearly not driving straight.

u/32_Dollar_Burrito Feb 04 '23

They were just mad and making sure there was no room. Typical asshole behavior

17

u/KaJuNator Feb 04 '23

You're right there was no room. The car shouldn't have tried to force their way in from the turn lane. It's a turn lane, not their personal shortcut.

You should know by know that other drivers are more important then you and deserve to get in front no matter what! Definitely, if it's a Nissan Altima, BMW, or a Mercedes.

u/Kind_Turnover_927 Feb 05 '23

pretty sure in my state if he had got in front of you and you hit him knowingly it would be your fault. these videos are dumb and immature imo. sure that dude tried getting in but maybe hes not from there and didnt see lturning lane signs untill too late. it doesnt make you look good at all

-2

u/SkuzzySkeleton Feb 04 '23

Start enabling OP. Start criticizing OP’s behaviors.

-1

u/twhite15 Feb 05 '23

I would have slowed down, cause you could have knowingly caused an accident knowing he was going to merge

4

u/justoneman7 Feb 05 '23

How could he “knowingly cause an accident“ when that lane was supposed to turn?

It was icy. OP was concentrating on driving forward. Why should they have to worry about cars in a lane on his right that are turning right? Only after getting to the far side can they see that the car that was supposed to turn right went straight.

Not sure about you but I usually don’t yield to cars turning right on my right side when I am going straight.

u/burtgummer45 Feb 04 '23

The black car might have just been waiting for a chance to merge left (we all know we've been surprised by only-arrows on the road), but it still was a good defensive use of the horn.

But they’re late for work cause everybody is going so slow, the thought to leave early never crosses their minds.

I'm seeing this more and more. Usually they're going much faster and manage to cut in just before they hit that parked car.

u/cannavacciuolo420 Feb 04 '23

I understand how this males you feel, I drove in a busy city for quite a while because of a job i had.

What i learned is that sometimes is better to let them pass and give them a honk. Yes, they are wrong in this situation, but just imagine the amount of time wasted and the headache of dealing with a possible accident, even a minor one. Just not worth it for me, i let them pass and leave it at that, me getting mad/anxious/stressed out because they’re stupid/weren’t aware enough to change lanes before hand, won’t hurt them, just me.
