This Ram 1500 driver was upset the car in front of them slowed at the first sign of a yellow.
Presumed Florida resident and Redditor /u/Unable_Feedback7338 shared dashcam footage to the /r/IdiotsInCars subreddit showing the surprising moment a driver in a Ram 1500 in Boynton Beach, FL became enraged that he slowed down when the light at the fast approaching intersection turned yellow.
Instead of slowing behind /u/Unable_Feedback7338, the Ram 1500 driver gassed it, weaved around OP, and ran a red light through the intersection.
Check out OP’s video below.
The incident took place in Boynton Beach, FL at the intersection of Seacrest and East Woolbright Rd (Exact location on Google Maps linked here.)
In the video we can see OP slow down cautiously once he sees a yellow light like you’re supposed to.
“A yellow signal light warns you that the red signal is about to appear. When you see the yellow light, you should stop, if you can do so safely. If you can’t stop, look out for vehicles that may enter the intersection when the light changes” – DriversEd.com
The driver in the Ram 1500 is probably used to gunning it and accelerating when he sees a yellow.
“Buddy was trying to go around everybody behind me, cutting people off and swerving around people dangerously. Once I saw yellow and slowed down I knew he was going to try some dumb maneuver. What an a**,” OP captioned his video.
“He was following way too close to me, which is his fault, he could have stopped too but decided to go around and run a red.”
In Florida, red light tickets carry at least a $158 fine which increases and with points added at the second and subsequent violations.
And yes, I and many others in the comments noticed that van with the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. logo.
If you’re wondering why you should take a beat and scan the intersection even when you have the right of way and/or a protected turn, this Ram 1500 driver is a great example why.
