Instant Karma: Driver's road rage backfires on camera

Remember the saying "What goes around, comes around?"

Well that rang true when one man's road rage became instant karma on a highway in Florida. And you guessed it - it was all caught on video.

Our Jeanne Moos has the video.

After you watch the video, let us know what you think in the comment section below.

    cross traffic can be seen in video so fast lane does no apply in this instance

    Um... take a look at the upside down / backward road rage card when flipping from "stop tailgating!" ... you may want to blur out that f-bomb.

    The moment I saw this article I knew it had to be in Florida (and most likely right here in Pasco County where a man once self righteously enlightened me with, "You're not a man if you don't drive a truck"). Anger is a universal emotion, but how we react to the emotion is what determines if we become a criminal or just move on. Sadly the Southern culture in general and the Florida culture in particular encourages the expression of anger often in destructive ways. While high profile cases such as a texter being shot by a former cop in a movie theater and an unarmed Black adolescent murdered in the grounds of his apartment complex and the perpetrator allowed to walk away without punishment has caught the Nation's attention events such as the one shown in this article are commonplace. Not a day goes by where I do not witness a driver speeding up and running through a red light or a biker steps on the throttle and cuts off a car missing the front fender by six inches or a driver is getting out of his car to confront another driver at a red light. I think the root causes of this are 1) Lack of respect for the rights of others and 2) lack of anger management skills. The reason I think this problem seems more commonplace here in Florida is the general lack of prioritization of education compared to other parts of the country where I've lived.

    If the guy wanted some Grey Poupon, he didn't have to get so huffy about it.
