VIDEO: Road-raging redneck gets instant karma (UPDATED)

A YouTube user going by the username Florida Driver posted this video Wednesday, saying that she’d been tailed by an angry truck driver for three minutes.

“After about a minute, and me shaking my head, I pulled out my phone and started recording. I couldn’t move over because there were trucks in the right lane, and I sure as heck wasn’t going to speed on a rainy day with the roads being as slick as they were. I was turning left in about a half-mile when this happened,” the driver wrote.

“Now bear in mind, that this guy had already passed a truck in a left turn lane, was tailgating and driving recklessly on a wet slick road, wasn’t paying attention, and all in all being an ignorant [a**]. In the full video which I will post later, you will be able to see that not once was I mouthing off, I never brake checked him, and in fact until I watched the video after the accident I didn’t even know he [gave me the middle finger] because I wasn’t looking at him at all, I was paying attention to the road while holding the phone up with my right hand.”

Just after the man driving the black Ford pickup truck passed the driver and changed lanes, he lost control and spun out into a grassy median.

“That’s what you get!” the woman yelled as she passed the man by.

[Update]

The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office has charged the pick up truck driver, 33-year-old Jefferey Travis White of Tampa, with Leaving the Scene of a Crash.

“Florida Driver” continues writing on YouTube: “He initially fled the scene of the accident, but thanks to this video he has been caught and charged. Massive props to the Sheriffs Department and most especially the Highway Patrol who responded to the scene.”

“Needless to say though, I’ve never seen Karma come back so fast.”

The woman who shot the video will not be charged, according to the sheriff’s office.

    While the driver of the truck may have been a dick. The person videoing seem to be an even bigger asshole… and should be ticketed for driving in the left lane ( which is a passing lane) There was ample opportunity for this person to get over and let the faster traffic go by… I hate people like the person videoing much more than the driver of the truck.

    Florida state law actually requires
    1. Vehicles keep right except when passing.

    2. Not impeeding the flow of traffic – which she was doing.

    According to a Florida law that went into effect lasy July – she gets a $60 ticket AND 3 points on her license. She claims she was preparing to make a left turn “in about half a mile” (probably because of the above law, she ONLY HAS half a mile to be blocking traffic before she turns).

    However, based on simple math – her video posted speed and the length of this video, she traveled over 8,400 feet (1.6 miles) – and she had been in the way before she started.

    Since she was stupid enough to post this – his lawyers now have justification to claim (based on the new law), that she was recklessly endangering others in the road by intentionally instigating a road-rage situation, and her insistance in continuing with her illegal actions after she became aware that a road-rage situation existed.

    but she was going the speed limit. thats not impeding traffic. and its not a freeway, so the whole keep to the right except the pass does not apply. and she was passing a truck and once there was clearance the truck that was behind her went around. other than using a phone while driving she really did nothing wrong.

    she still has to leave a safe amount of room between her and the other vehicle. the truck behind her went around at the same time she probably would have merged over to the right lane.

    Didn’t she say she *couldn’t* get out of his way because there were trucks in the right lane at the time? >_>

    Pretty sure she was going the speed limit in rainy conditions. Not really a fan of her recording while driving but she wasn’t doing anything wrong besides that.
    Once again Florida rises to the top.

    Disagreed. If you are turning left, you have every right in the world to be in the left lane. This is not a limited access highway where you’re obligated to stay right unless passing. And by the way, what’s more dangerous, watching the road and holding a camera or looking your window, not paying attention to the traffic ahead and flipping someone off? How long does he look at her as he passes, 4 or 5 seconds? Please, he’d probably get a ticket for reckless driving when any cop or judge saw the video. Then, he gets so out of control when he passes, that he actually goes actually goes across the oncoming lanes of traffic and ends up in the ditch on the other side of the highway. Someone could have been killed by this guy.

    If you read what she said, she was not wanting to get over in the middle of trucks. So, she could easily argue that she was “passing” just as much as the guy behind her, except she was passing at a speed slower than what the pick up truck wanted to go at.

    I don’t think there’s a law which determines the speed at which you must pass, or whether you are required to yield the left lane should someone else want to speed.

    Speeding is one of those situations which is acceptable, somewhat, in order to pass… but the driver behind her was intending to speed for >1.6 miles by your rough math, so he may be “at fault” for the speeding.

    I’m no lawyer, but I suspect that it might not be as clear cut as you say it is.

    Read the story. She explained it all. There were trucks in the right lane so she couldn’t get over, (Which she showed in the video) and she also explained that she was turning left in about a half mile. The guy lost at most a couple minutes out of his life, I think he could have dealt with it without freakin the hell out.

    Actually, she was overtaking two vehicles in the video, so there is no half mile limit to her use of the lane as long as she continues to pass others. Her speed was massively over the speed limit and the law does not require that you exceed the speed limit when passing, nor does it require you to move to the right and occupy the space of another car on order to not “impede the flow of traffic”. You are only charged with impeding the flow of traffic if you are maintaining even pace with the vehicles to your right, or you are traveling slower. In that circumstance, within 1/2 of a mile you are expected to make a good faith effort to safely move to the right lane. You are, however, not required to significantly slow down our exceed the speed limit to do so, so if an opening does not present itself, you can drive on the left without legal limit.

    Doesn’t apply here though because she was passing and preparing for a left turn.

    Maybe she didn’t belong in the left lane (she does claim she was intending to turn left) but the fact is that he was driving to endanger, and that’s exactly what he did. This moron tailgating her was putting lives at risk; while it may be annoying (and against the rules of the road), traveling in the passing lane does not put lives at risk. I won’t lie, I have become aggravated at people who do this, but I would never do something like what this Neanderthal did to anyone. What if there was a child in the car? It makes me even more nervous to be on the road with people saying they would be more pissed at the girl. The entire purpose of his actions was so he could have himself a pissing contest. What if his recklessness had killed someone?

    I fail to see how she instigated a road rage situation, unless you mean she evoked some overreaction from the d-bag with the superiority complex when he couldn’t control his emotions over it, because apparently he was trying to outrun the apocalypse?? That’s the only reason I can think of for his reckless driving. There is no excuse for this whole ordeal at all.

    I live in Florida and No one, but No one keeps to their correct lanes. They pass on the right consistently. They do not signal lane changes. A majority of FL Drivers just don’t have any idea how to drive correctly in lanes. This confuse the crap out of me because I was instructed (UK) to keep in the correct lanes on the right ie. not the faster lanes on the left and only overtake on the left. I consistently, out of habit, always trying to move back to the right only to find some impatient idiot overtaking me on the right. The driving exam in this respect is a complete farce in Florida. Need to adopt an UK or German style exam. I have never seen a FHP or any traffic cop pull over anyone for being in the incorrect lane or overtaking on the right. Something the UK Cops and Germ cops will do consistently if they catch you. Trying keeping in the fast lane on a German Autobahn, you’ll get a Mercedes tail ending you at 250KMH. You’ll get a couple of flashes from the fast approaching car several hundred yards behind and you just move over immediately to the right lane.

    1. Driving in a passing lane
    2. Driving in a passing lane and impeding traffic that is trying to pass.
    3. Making a video while driving in a passing lane and impeding traffic that is trying to pass.

    Conclusion: This woman is a far bigger menace (read: asshole) on the road than the guy in the pickup. Sit yourself at home and read your DMV manual instead of trying to become “famous” on the internet.
