This lunatic in Tacoma also happened to speed next to a construction zone, potentially doubling his fine.

Presumed ‘Toner and Redditor /u/DropTheMic12 shared concerning dashcam footage from his friend that turned to instant karma from earlier yesterday (June 5, 2024) on the 509 showing a maniac in a Ford F-150 using a center turn lane and actively going against traffic to cut off everyone else.

Check out this deranged driver’s move below.

The incident happened at the intersection of SR-509 and Taylor Way (Exact location on Google Maps linked here.)

As the dashcam footage shows, OP’s friend is driving forward across the intersection with Taylor Way like a normal, sane, person, when, all of a sudden, a driver in a black Ford F-150 speeds by OP’s friend and other traffic on the far left side turn lane.

The speed limit on this stretch of road is 50 MPH. This maniac had to be touching 100 MPH.

Tacoma PD must’ve seen the whole thing because, less than a mile later, a police cruiser can be seen with their blues and tunes on, pulling over the offending driver.

“So many moving violations in so little time. Running a red, illegal lane change (crossing a solid white), likely speeding in the construction zone, reckless driving. So many points. Do not pass go,” /u/TheJusticiar pointed out.

Speeding in Washington like this is subject to a base fine of several hundred dollars, including points on your record.

Keen eyes will notice the speeder drove by a construction site, potentially doubling his speeding fine, or worse.

Running a red light in Washington carries a base fine of at least $138.

An illegal, unsafe lane change in Washington is subject to a $250 base fine.

Additionally, this driver’s actions can largely be classified as reckless driving which, itself, carries a fine up to $5,000 and possible jail time no greater than 364 days.

In other words, this guy’s cooked.

“Think that guy may have been already running from the cop. At least I hope so,” /u/Dil*doBagginss commented.

“I find it really funny this guy went through all this trouble barreling through the light only to end up one car ahead of OP,” /u/ClownToucher added.

There’s no justification to drive so recklessly.

Thankfully, it looks like no one, and their property, was seriously hurt or injured as it could’ve ended up a lot worse.

Hopefully this guy, not only gets a ton of fines and points, but sees his license suspended for several years, too.
