Is KARMA 'a thing?'....maybe this video will say so...

A woman in Tampa uploaded a video of a guy in a truck tailgating her this past Monday. Then he pulled up next to her and flipped her off, because he thought she was driving too slow. But right afterward....he lost control and crashed into a TREE. 

And in the video, you can hear the woman start LAUGHING at him when it happens.

    Why didn't the woman move out of the fast lane? Yes he was an aggressive driver but by forcing him to stay behind her she knew she was pushing his buttons. If she had just moved over and let him pass, it wouldn't have escalated to this. This article explains it nicely.

      @Peachy Because thats the way Albertans drive, LOL. Nobody knows that the passing lane on a freeway is actually for passing.

      @Peachy Who cares? There's always that small percentage of individuals who don't understand/care about the left lane "rule. YOU CANNOT CONTROL OTHER PEOPLE. But you can control how you react to it. This guy could have sailed passed her (albeit in the right lane) and then got on with his day. He CHOSE to get stressed out and be an idiot, and he got exactly what he deserved for his reckless driving. This whole "omg someones in the left lane" nonsense is a first world issue, bud. Learn how to control your emotions and quit blaming others for YOUR anger.

    HAHA rite on..altho, why was she in the fast lane, shoulda let the asshole pass. but, things as they were, maybe it was

      @shmang There's not a 'fast' or 'slow' lane. Its simply a passing lane, but moral of the story here is that he should've been watching the road and making sure he could handle his truck.

    Ha! Well she was passing others too, before he cut into the other lane to pass her. I think he got what he deserved for being an ass.
    1. Timmy posted on 03/28/2014 02:41 PM
      @Robin she wasn't passing. She was blocking. For the first half of the video she stays beside the flatbed and not going anywhere. She was more interested in filming the other driver with her phone while driving than getting around and pulling back in. What it doesn't show is how long she was blocking with no one in front of her before she started filming.

    This dumb but nut with the safety vest is most likely some useless friend of a friend on the job site. She should give way to faster drivers in respect to safety. Now we in Edmonton know that drivers here, are straight up wrong in the mind!!!!!!! I personally CHEER every time I see some high priced mini van or suv involved in a pileup!!

      @chris And personally I love it when I see douchebags in big trucks (who can't drive them) end up in the ditch. Made my day, this goof.

    Get in the right lane you stupid bitch. The accident is your fault, you are too dumb to realize.
    1. Nicole posted on 03/28/2014 02:45 PM
      @J McNichol There is NO passing lanes within the city limits !!!! That rule is only for highway driving!! and even on the highway it does NOT mean that the fast lane is for anyone that wants to go above the speed limit!! The passing lane on the highway is for people that want to do the speed limit when others are doing slightly below the speed limit!!
    2. Jamie posted on 03/29/2014 08:10 AM
      @J McNichol Ha, you're a goof for defending this piss ant, he can spend his money fixing his stupid. He still needs a smack though for that attitude problem.
  6. rocket posted on 03/28/2014 09:25 AM
    all you people saying "get in the right lane" are idiots, the left lane isnt meant for people to ignore the speed limit, if she is doing the limit then there is no problem, the slow lane is meant for trucks that cant accelerate UP TO the speed limit very fast or slow down when climbing a hill/ approaching a corner, personally i think all habitual speeders should have their license revoked, try speeding on the ets.
    1. Glen posted on 03/28/2014 09:42 AM
      @rocket Its people like you who impeed traffic flow and clog lanes unnessecairly. Moving over for just a couple of seconds isn't hard. I mean when there is a lineup of 20 cars behind you, take a hint.
    2. T posted on 03/28/2014 09:45 AM
      @rocket Your wrong and that's why you don't drive sorry buddy but the left lane is the fast lane you are not aloud to travel in the left lane unless your passing hence the left lane is the fast lane if you were traveling the speed limit or less in the fast lane you are supposed to get a carless driving charge the fast lane is 10 kms faster then the posted speed limit so you can pass people safely in no cop but i my traffic lawyer says the same
  7. SNOWOLF posted on 03/28/2014 09:29 AM
    Definitely shows the curant state of affairs and why we have so many accidents and higher insurance rates. Surprise, it's not the dumbass in the truck.. I drive for a living and there was once a time when even if you where going faster than the speed limit people would always move over and let you by.
    Now with the new me jeneration propagated by Oprah and the like we see this same self important bullshit everywhere, not just on the roads.. Stand in line anywhere and whatch and you will see it is a societal problem and now a driving problem...
    1. Judged posted on 03/29/2014 08:25 AM
      @SNOWOLF I suppose you would agree, then, that Oprah (that propagating bitch!) should spend less time educating this 'jeneration' on driving etiquette, and more time discussing the 'curant' state of educational standards in Alberta, yes? Ok, I'll keep a close 'whatch' out for that.
  8. Trevor posted on 03/28/2014 09:32 AM
    Yeah the bitch in the car should have defenatly should
    Have moved over. No doubt about that. But at the same time the dude in the truck was most certainly driving like an ass too. I mean to spin right out on dry pavement like that just shows the lack of driving skills this douchebag really has. Maybe he shouldn't drive a lifted diesel if he can't harness the power behind it. Glad to see one more shitty ford off the road though. Bottom line bitch should have moved over, angry douche needs to go bak to driving school.
    1. Yoenna posted on 03/28/2014 01:19 PM
      @Trevor Agreed, and your post made me LOL 8-)

  9. Allan posted on 03/28/2014 09:36 AM
    Anyone suggesting this is her fault is wrong. Even if she should have given way, the other guy shouldn't have decided to sit here and flip her off instead of paying attention on the road.

    The one making the video is hardly a keen driver by taking a video while driving, but the assholes that are so self important to tailgate someone and then slingshot past because "QQ I'm in a hurry" are a huge part of the problem.
    1. Glen posted on 03/28/2014 09:57 AM
      @Allan I agree with you Allan, but what about the self important people who clog the hammer lane and never move over to let traffic flow? No sense in being in the left lane unnessecairly.
  10. Joanne Reid posted on 03/28/2014 09:55 AM
    This has nothing to do do with karma. The woman recording this video is clearly at fault. No 1 using your phone while driving is illegal no 2 she was supposed to move over out if the passing lane. He clearly was not right to give her the finger and take his eyes off the road for as long as he did but, her attitude about him crashing is no different. Two immature people on the road is clearly road hazards. Use your time more wisely.
    1. Jamie posted on 03/29/2014 08:22 AM
      @Joanne Reid That dumb bitch in the Ford truck did an illegal burn out on a highway (which could either be stunting or dangerous driving) as well as making an illegal lane change without signaling. He was responsible for what happened. The woman in the left lane doesn't have to speed, period.

    Theirs someone else in the car recording you dumb ass

      @B watch the video again the driver is doing the videoing next time take a good look before calling names
  12. Tammy posted on 03/28/2014 10:19 AM
    She was passing people in the slow lane - so there was no reason for her to move over yet... People need to be patient
  13. Jay posted on 03/28/2014 10:24 AM
    "In most of Canada, passing is allowed on both sides. The law doesn’t specifically state that the left lane for passing only – just that slower cars should move to the right." Either way, some people drive like they have nothing but time. I don't care what lane you're in, be considerate to the other drivers on the road. If a guy is going a little too fast maybe his wife just went into labor or someone in their family has had a terrible accident and they are rushing to the hospital..obviously doesn't apply in all cases with speedets and tailgaters, but keep that in mind the next time you do 90km/hr in the left lane and are wondering why there is a big line up of cars behind you..
    1. Yoenna posted on 03/28/2014 01:21 PM
      @Jay Yes it was not courteous of her. That does not make it OK to drive recklessly and cause an accident. He could have sailed by and got on with his day. He chose to act foolishly. The accident was a direct result of his actions. She wasn't controlling his truck.
  14. HeyAll posted on 03/28/2014 11:12 AM
    First off. The girl who was driving was also videotaping this whole thing, if i'm not mistaken. Second off, she was in the fast lane, used for cars to pass, which is actually illegal. If there is no one in the lane beside you, you should technically be in that lane, and can get pulled over for driving in the fast lane when not necessary. Yes that guy was kind of a dick, and shouldn't have tried to be a hard ass, but they are both at fault for that accident.
    1. The A-Dawg posted on 03/28/2014 12:20 PM
      @HeyAll Please post the law where it says its ILLEGAL to drive and STAY in the left lane. Last time I checked there's no law about that.
  15. Bearcat posted on 03/28/2014 11:14 AM
    FINALLY some justice. I see so many schmucks pulling crap like that - it's awesome to see one of them get exactly what I've always wished for :)
    1. Jay posted on 03/28/2014 02:32 PM
      @Bearcat I had a guy do it coming head on towards me the other day. I was ready to take the ditch, but thanks fuck he did first. Nose dive into the ditch doing a buck haha.
  16. Eric B posted on 03/28/2014 11:53 AM
    What is the speed limit there? She showed her speedometer. Regardless of whether she's in the "fast" lane or not, we all need to do the posted speed limit. Meaning the fast lane isn't the "speeding" lane!
  17. kyle124124 posted on 03/28/2014 11:53 AM
    for those of you blaming the lady driving i understand how she could have caused this at the beginning, but near the end when he was already past her and had clear way to just drive aggressively like he wanted, instead he decided to slow down to give her the finger and be and idiot boasting, then because of him not paying attention and being an idiot he got in an accident because he couldn't control his truck, therefor i don't think its the lady's fault completely, she may have started everything but he was 2 immature to just drive away when he finally got what he wanted, just had to be a dick after, karma's a bitch
    1. Yoenna posted on 03/28/2014 01:22 PM
      @kyle124124 Agreed 100%. Glad someone else here gets it!

      @kyle124124 If you notice he didn't slow down she sped up to not let him pass when he wasn't allowed to pass because she sped up just to be a douche bag that is when he flipped her off and got even more pssed off
  18. ken posted on 03/28/2014 12:11 PM
    OK first thing you people should remember ...speeding is against the law no matter what lane yer in. second tailgating is also against the rules...did none of you actually pay attention when getting your licence? for all of you siding with the will more than likely end up in the same boat as him since you seem to not give a shity about the law.
  19. Someone with common sense posted on 03/28/2014 01:06 PM
    I love the people blaming the driver filming this... Yes it's illegal to use your phone while driving... but really that and speeding are the only illegal things she's doing.

    You can see she is passing other cars in the right lane, she isn't driving there because it's awesome... she is speeding and passing slower traffic just as he is.

    Had this jack ass just continued his slingshot passed her and not decided to be an arrogant piece of shit the accident would not have happened. He lost control of his truck avoiding rear ending a car he was coming up to. He swerved left to avoid the car ahead and was going at such a high rate of speed that he could no control the change in direction... the speed was such that he went COMPLETELY across not only the median but two more lanes of opposing traffic to hit the god damn tree which didn't even stop him. The accident could have been a LOT worse with more people than just him involved. Karma is a bitch.

  21. tone posted on 03/28/2014 02:28 PM
    Both of these drivers are idiots. Common sense says if a car is in the left lane and wants to pass move the hell over. There was plenty of time for this lady to do this, let the guy in a hurry get to where he wants to go. On the other hand - he could have just accepted the fact that the driver in front had no idea, passed on the inside and been on his way. The guy clearly is a douche who can't drive so he got what was coming.
  22. Rachel posted on 03/28/2014 02:32 PM
    She wasn't going slow in the fast lane. She passed a truck, she just wasn't going as fast as the douche cake wanted her to go.

      @Kevin He had 100% control of his truck's operation, she had 0%. His fault. I hope the police charge him with dangerous driving for 'stunting' on a highway and making illegal lane changes.
  25. TED posted on 03/28/2014 05:04 PM
    I love how everyone is talking about her getting out of the fast lane. There are no "fast lanes" in the city...that's for highways. If you watch, she actually passes two trucks and the second there is an opening, buddy in the truck jumps into the right hand lane. He could have just gone about his day, but instead slows down to be a jackass. He deserves it.
