Road Rage on I10 Louisiana

The chase in this video took place last Friday night (Dec 3rd, 2010) on our way to New Orleans. My family and I where in the so called slow-lane (IE. the right lane), and the vehicles involved in the road rage where in the fast (left) lane. Anybody who has traveled between Lafayette, LA and New Orleans, LA by vehicle coming from Houston, TX will have to cross what I like to call the bridge from HELL. It is 28 miles long, has only 2 exits and it is 2 lanes in both directions with little or no shoulders to pull over on ... also unless you are a very good swimmer or can walk on water, don't have an accident and land in the water, you will be dinner for sure for the alligators that reside below the bridge (or other critters. Anyway, moving on ... The 2 vehicles in the video in the left lane (1 pickup and 1 mini cooper) decided they wanted to play road rage and not care who would die. And the truck in the right lane was also at fault since he would not let the mini move over. So you see several times how the truck is riding the mini's bumper close to 1 inch away. There where also several times that the pickup tried going around to the left of the mini, (FYI there was less than 3 feet of clearance and he would've definitely wrecked) but thankfully thought it would've been a real bad idea. In the end the truck got around, but they still continued there rage for probably another 10 to 15 miles. My wife did call the police and they intercepted them several miles up the road. The cool thing was that I had shot this video and my wife shot another video on her phone and when we saw the police and the vehicles, both officers looked at both footages shot and used it to actually issue extremely reckless driving tickets to both drivers involved. Also a 2nd ticket was issued to the truck tailing the cooper because when he finally got around the cooper, he threw something at the cooper which I also captured on video. Check it out and see what we saw and agree that all it would've taken was for the cooper to hit it's breaks and that bridge would've easily been shutdown for a period of time with injuries and a pretty good chance of a casualty or two. Enjoy.

I hate this type of driver!
I just hate when people drive like this? They are unaware of their surroundings and go as fast as the person in the slow lane. WHY? If you want to hear me rant more, check out my blog! Update: Thank you Maryland for doing the right thing: 53349894

Brake checking a cop...
"KEEP RIGHT EXCEPT TO PASS" IS THE LAW IN CERTAIN STATES! While riding the left lane for no apparent reason this van was approached from behind by a sheriffs patrol car (clearly marked lights on top, black &white etc.), after blocking my way for several miles...I moved to the right as I saw the police cruiser approach figuring he would surely move over for the cop ...The van either didn't see the cop car at first or decided he wasn't going to pull to the right for him either (which is the travel lane for those who still cant grasp that concept) I was becoming more and more amused by this and decided to start recording with my dash-cam. The cop was not amused so he flashed his lights to the van several times, started riding the rumble strip and tailgating (note the weather...) The van driver for whatever reason decides it would be a good idea to brake-check the cop!!! And so it goes for quite a while until van guy pulls to the right lane as I'm contemplating going an extra exit or 2 to follow the unfolding saga...but as the cop starts to pass the van (I'm in the exit lane already) the most wonderful thing happens...

Good Luck With Passing By This Left Lane Driver on the Alex Fraser Bridge
Watch more at There are thousands of slow and inconsiderate left lane drivers on the Alex Fraser Bridge, but this one just blows ones mind. Why is it necessary to drive slow in the fast lane, then speed up when somebody wants to pass you by and then slow down again so that there is no way to pass you by? This Asian woman in a Mercedes Benz SUV just doesn't make sense. Which lane should you use? Choose the lane that gives you the best vision and allows you to go where you want to go. On a multi‑lane highway, you should travel in one of the right‑hand lanes. This is especially important if you are driving more slowly than other vehicles or if signs direct you to keep out of the left lane. Just because you are driving at the speed limit does not mean you should continually drive in the left lane. This may cause other drivers to try to pass on the right, which may not be as safe as passing on the left. When you are on a freeway with more than two lanes in each direction, you should drive in the centre lane or a right‑hand lane. This leaves the left lane for higher‑speed traffic and passing vehicles. LoDrivers Reckless Drivers and Witness Accounts
