Karma comes from behind for reckless Mini Cooper. Literally.

Whether you’re cut off or being tailgated, there are plenty of people on the road that can make your blood boil. No matter how frustrated you get with a reckless driver, the answer is never to cut them off or give them the infamous brake check. In today’s video, a dummy took both strategies to a whole new level and it backfired on him. Badly.

It appears the driver of this Mini Cooper felt he’d been cut off by a semi that merged in front of him. However, instead of slamming on the horn and giving him the finger, as one would normally do, he took a series of steps that warrants him a spot amongst our dumbest drivers. After answering back by crossing a double yellow line to cut in front of the trucker, he decides to pull what starts as an ignorant brake check then quickly ventures into insurance fraud territory. His car decelerates so hard it nearly comes to a stop and the truck driver, unable to stop in time, ends up rear-ending him.



Since I do not know what they are saying you can watch the video at your own risk here.

It's an increasingly scary world out there. Don't drive fast enough for some aggressive/entitled/road rage-afflicted animals -- and they'll shoot and kill someone...even innocent 3-year-olds.

Both sad indictments of an increasingly selfish and self-centred world, where people feel angry and entitled to take drastic measures in retaliation for minor transgressions.
