Had he waited a few more seconds, this dashcam owner implies he would’ve moved over anyway.

Presumed Pennsylvanian and Redditor /u/DumderMufflin posted up head-shaking dashcam footage from I-78 in Williams Township from earlier last weekend (June 22, 2024) to the /r/IdiotsInCars subreddit showing the dangerous moment a Ford Super Duty Driver forced his way between two vehicles in the fast lane.

Check out his dashcam footage below.

Didn’t move over fast enough for small brains, big truck. Attempted murder was his choice. [OC]

The incident happened on I-78 in Williams Township, PA just after the 33 (exact location on Google Maps linked here.)

As OP’s dashcam footage shows, he’s driving in the fast lane, using it like he’s supposed to, actively passing a driver in a Jeep Wrangler in Lane #2.

As OP’s title implies, once he passed the Wrangler, he would’ve eventually gotten over.

However, that wasn’t good enough for a driver in a silver Ford Super Duty who wanted to get over into the fast lane right away instead of slotting behind OP.

This driver in the Ford accelerates and immediately places his entire truck into the fast lane, dangerously close in front of OP as he brute-forced his way between OP and the Nissan crossover in front of him.

He just about set himself up to get pit-maneuvered.

His dangerous maneuver eventually “works” as OP lets off the accelerator to let this crazy Super Duty driver through lest they get into a collision.

And of course, the Super Duty driver threw in a brake check for good measure.

This is arguably reckless driving, subject to a fine of up to $200 and a license suspension.

If that Super Duty driver caused an accident and anyone was injured, this reckless driving charge would then be considered aggravated vehicular assault, a third-degree felony, itself subject to harsher fines and penalties.

“My boss is one of these guys and he does this to people with me in the truck. He’s gonna regret not paying me better if I’m ever put in the position to testify against him because I’m not gonna lie lol,” /u/smellvin_moiville honestly commented.

“Man, I can’t believe a pickup truck driver would behave like that. They’re always so safe and respectful,” /u/KaJuNator sarcastically added.

“My quality of life has improved significantly since I decided to avoid people like this at all costs on the road. There is no upside to engaging with a literal crazy person driving erratically, publicly displaying anger issues caught on a dash camera, and/or showing a complete willingness to seriously injure people to score a traffic “win”. These people will eventually suffer serious consequences for their poor choices, and I do everything in my power to ensure that it doesn’t involve me,” /u/Piccolo_Bambino wisely commented.

What /u/Picolo_Bambino commented is honestly the best advice out there.

When it comes to road rage, it’s best not to engage.

As all things advice, it’s easier said than done, but it’s worth trying your hardest to practice.


  1. Why did you close the gap to keep him from getting in. Yes he was wrong but the dash cam driver was just as wrong accelerating to force him out. Give him the lane and let him go.
