If you’re looking to watch a brake-checking idiot get his just desserts, just skip to around to the one-minute mark of the above video. This is why you don’t try to brake check anyone, much less the driver of a massive tractor trailer. You know, because of the whole “mess with the bull, you get the horns” logic.
Why this buffoon decided to piss off a trucker is beyond me, but you can tell he changes his tune — from attempting to pull off insurance fraud to covering his own ass — the moment he realizes that his mistake was all captured on the truck’s dashcam.
A Mini Cooper is rear-ended after cutting off a 50 ton truck, then coming to a complete stop. Due to the weight of the truck, the driver was unable to stop quickly. The driver of the Mini Cooper was issued fines and his license was suspended for 11 months.
As one YouTube commenter succinctly puts it, “dashcams sure have put a dent into the insurance fraud industry.” Ain;t that the truth. And, because we all know that what goes around comes around, especially when it comes to what you do out on the road, the Mini Cooper driver deservedly got served up some serious karma.
He’s lucky that the truck driver didn’t decide to add injury to insult, because a less-patient guy probably would’ve been inclined to just start throwing blows the moment he stepped out of his vehicle. But, the guy knew he had caught the would-be scammer dead to rights, and all he had to do was point out the fact that his dashcam was turned on and go on with his day. Trucker: 1, Mini Cooper driver: -1,000.
