One motorist’s less-than-smart lane change ended in both a loss of time and a fine from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Montreal last month.
While others appear patient amid traffic outside of Canada’s Louis-Hippolyte Lafontaine Tunnel-Bridge, an impatient driver is seen illegally cutting off a truck.
Like drivers of other larger vehicles, those who operate semi trucks are required to leave a large amount of space in front of them to protect both themselves and other motorists in the event of a potentially fatal, abrupt stop. The impatient driver sought to take advantage of that space, but they apparently didn’t see the police cruiser parked alongside the road.
The trucker, whose front-facing dash camera recorded the event, can be overheard taking much delight in the violator’s just desserts at the hands (or finger point, rather) of a highway patrol officer.
