The next exit was just a mile away.

Presumed Michigander and Redditor /u/KxMadden shared frustratingly annoying dashcam footage from earlier this week (May 29, 2024) from I-275 in Livonia to the /r/IdiotsInCars subreddit showing the moronic moment a driver in a Ford Focus slowed to a crawl, changing three lanes, just to make their exit.

Check out the hare brained moment below.

[OC] Wreckless moron refuses to miss exit, may need a new horn after this exchange.

As mentioned, the incident happened on I-275 just before the 170 Exit onto Six Mile Road (exact location on Google Maps linked here.)

As OP’s video shows, he’s travelling in Lane #3.

A driver in a Ford Focus (License plate: ETM 5807) in Lane #2 starts to slow and change lanes into Lane #3.

Wanting to not miss Exit 170, the Focus practically slows to a crawl in front of OP.

“Ahh man, what the f*** are you doing?,” OP yells out of frustration as he lays on his horn.

And deservedly so.

Slowing to a crawl like this on a busy freeway can catch some drivers off-guard, potentially causing a nasty collision.

Eventually, the Focus makes their exit, but doing so in the most dangerous way possible.

As this screenshot of that section of I-275 shows, there was another exit a mile away.

How close the next exit was.

“You’re extremely fortunate you didn’t get rear-ended by someone not paying the best of attention. Dude almost forced you into a complete stop in the center of the G.D. highway,” /u/Munkeyslvoebanas commented.

“This is so much worse than speeding. I’ll never cease to be amazed at how comfortable some people are with making their mistake everyone else’s problem,” /u/appa-ate-mom added.

“Why get over early when you can risk lives and get over at the very last second,” /u/_Jump_Yossarian sarcastically replied.

It bears repeating, but if you know your exit is coming up, and you can’t make it, don’t force it.

Just take the next exit, however far it is down the road.
