SUAMICO -- A video recorded on a Wisconsin highway shows a driver engaging in dangerous behavior. It's called "brake checking," and can trigger deadly crashes.

I hope that stupid mother fucker does that one of these days and ends up dead. As long as he doesn't hurt anyone else it will be a win win. One less idiot with a steering wheel in their hands.

Wasn't real bright but it looks like the boom truck is left lane camping, and the brake checker is trying to get around slower traffic in the right lane.

Looks like an asshole ran across a dumbass. You can choose who's who.

There's got to be more to that video than the news story posted. He cut the pump truck off and then immediately slammed on the brakes. There must have been some sort of altercation before that to make the person do that. It doesn't change the epic levels of stupidity of the SUV driver for doing what they did, but that video is not telling us everything that happened. I'd be interested in seeing what happened prior to the cut off/brake check because people usually don't rage bad enough to do something that dumb unless something else occurred that made them snap. (My bet is the pump truck cut them off so they whipped into the right line, rushed to get in front of them so they could "return the favor")

You still don't "brake check" a vehicle that can't slow down as fast as you can unless you want to cause an accident.

If you can determine the truck can be cited in a 15 second video clip, only showing what's going on in front, then you're a fucking wizard.


You don't know what pushed him into the left lane.

Maybe there was a broken down vehicle behind them. Concrete boom trucks are permit loads just rolling down the road, so getting into the left lane is better for all.

Maybe there is construction ahead where he needs to get off on.

There's about a hundred reasons why he could legally be there.

Beyond that, there is no fucking space for him to safely merge over to the right. The dash cam fucking proves this.

Well, except for causing situations where people can't pass, causing traffic to back up on highways, creating bottlenecks where people are having to slam on the brakes at 65-75 mph.

Funny. It looks to me like the truck is working on a pass. When dumb fuck couldn't be inconvenienced and had to make a statement.

I know that LLCers are a major pet peeve for some of us, but that statement is not even close to true even if you try to hold them accountable for other peoples' road raging and tailgating. Most sources list the top three as distracted driving, drunk driving, and speeding in that order.

Here is a typical list of the top 25, and left-lane camping isn't mentioned:

It hit the news up here last week and the real story is that a truck merged onto the road a mile back or so, the concrete truck moved to the left lane to give him room as he should. He wasn't camping. He just couldn't get back over into the right lane because the SUV was there.

ETA: The video is trimmed to just show the brake check.

People driving rolling permit loads like that, are typically the highest paid, highest skilled drivers on the road due to the complexity of the truck.

Holy shit! Are you that dense? Ever driven a truck? Or driven courteously? Moved over for merging traffic or stopped vehicles? I have done all, and sometimes when you move over you cannot get back right away because retards passing on the right and blocking you. Can you see the asshole in the suv is next to him preventing him from moving over in that vid? I can, even as short as the clip is.

As I posted above, he moved left to give a merging semi room. The SUV driver prevented him from getting back into the right lane.

If you watch the full video, you'll see the truck was in the right lane. It signaled left, so it could pass the slower car in the right lane. Brake checker appeared in video at a very high speed compared to the other vehicles in the video, dove around the truck and then cut back in front of the truck.

Exactly


Another 100% valid and legal reason to be in the left lane.

The dash cam does show there was no assured cleared distance for him to merge over to the right.

I'm trying to figure out where this happened. I know that along 39/90 near the Illinois border there as a huge amount of road and bridge construction underway on and over the interstate. I drove through it last week and saw ~20 concrete mixing trucks and at least three pumpers.

Here's my theory.

SUV guy is behind truck in left lane...but he ain't passing traffic fast enough for him. So he hops in the right lane hoping to jack rabbit the truck before he gets boxed in. Then in some sort of malfunctioning risk vs reward decision decides he should brake check the truck to prove his dominance of the road.

...hey, but you have to give props to the courteous WI drivers. Asshole used his blinker.

If you get your head out of your ass and stop tailgating you won't have to slam on your brakes.

While it's polite, it's not the law here in Michigan. I suspect most don't have a clue.

Michigan law leaves little room for debate: Merging motorists "shall" yield the right-of-way to existing traffic and adjust their speed accordingly. Failure to do so can constitute a civil infraction.

I know there's no evidence to support either of your theories.

Trucks and permit loads specifically, have no business in the left lane. Merging traffic must yield to flowing traffic so, there's no reason for him to move over to "let traffic in." If a lane is BLOCKED he should have no issue getting around the obstacle and back into the right lane before resuming normal highway speeds. If he is exiting on the LEFT he'd better be in a metropolis because, as far as I know, there's no such thing as a left exit off a two lane freeway or interstate and, even if there was, there's no evidence in the video to support that theory.

No, he's got no business in the left lane as far as the data we're all privy to.

We can chalk this up to "don't start nothin', won't be nothin'."

All that said, the brake checker should be shot in the face in front of their family. What he did was stupid and dangerous. The trucker's behavior would be more readily altered with a 5 figure fine, loss of commercial license and 6 months in jail for being in the left lane without exigent need. The SUV driver's behavior is so deplorable he just needs killin'.

But, I'm going with "when assholes collide."

As far as your "permit load drivers are the best" comment .... there's lots of people who are *really* good at what they do who are ALSO assholes.
