Yep!

Who in this forum can say that they haven't slowed down in the fast lane same as the guy in the pickup did. I will bet everyone had done it. I bet if the Camara hadn't cut over on the truck at the beginning there wouldn't have been an issue

The classic case of the "pinch"...The truck driver got mad at the camaro driver for his first attempted lane change then pinches him between the semi himself and the shoulder of the highway. I would never admit to using the "pinch" on anyone.....I will admit to remembering this outcome the next time it enters my mind...

I've done a lot of stupid things in my driving days. I'm not proud of them, but I've definitely done them. Very similar case- about 10 years ago, I saw a Mitsubishi 3000GT weaving in through traffic coming up hard around/behind me. I blocked him from wedging his way into my lane and he bit it. He slid/spun wildly out of control across 4 lanes of traffic and ended up hitting the median. I shudder to think that I or anyone else could have been in the accident.

Yep- this. Exactly.

Towing (and probably a lack of a commute) has calmed my driving down. But, seeing this kind of video is a good reminder that things can get ugly quick when you let a moment of anger cloud your judgement.

The camero was totally wrong but I know when somebody drives crazy near me I get away and if this guy did the first move I would move and call 911. The taking innocent people out is just plain irresponsible .

Sure glad no one took it upon himself to teach us a lesson yesterday as we were hurrying to the hospital after I stuck my hand in the table saw.

Sorry to hear about tangling with a table saw. Have had a couple of encounters myself. Luckily, nothing serious that required stitches, just bandaids.

Hopefully it wasn't too serious. I take the fact that you're still typing here in the forums as a positive sign you have fingers.
