Karma, Part Two: ‘Redneck Rage’
Viral Video Gets Driver Arrested

Mediaite, by Evan McMurry

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 3/31/2014 5:51:20 AM

The Tampa, FL driver behind “Redneck Roadrage/Instant Karma,” a viral YouTube video in which an aggressive driver gets his sweet, sweet comeuppance, spoke to WTSP about the incident, and said the video had led to an arrest of the driver. Authorities were able to identify the driver from the video. He has been charged with reckless driving, leaving the scene, and, best of all, not wearing a seatbelt. “Honestly, looking back, I feel kind of bad for laughing,” said the driver, who declined to give her name. “But at the same time, it’s kind of funny.” “None of us are good drivers. We

Call it what you want,the fact is the driver shooting the video was going too slow in the fast lane shooting a video while driving and doing her best to irritate the guy in the pickup truck. Good karma would have been the video person getting seriously injured due to her shenanigans.

#1, that was my thought as well when I saw the video. The woman who took the video CAUSED the accident.

Love the L-dot community... First two relies were my reaction too. People impeding the flow in the fast lane cause more aggressive moves and dangerous actions than any speeder does.
Wish cops paid more attention to this than speeding or California stop sign infractions

Well no, she didn´t cause it. She may have been a source of irritation, and may even have blocked the lane, but every driver is responsible for maintaining control of his own vehicle. Left lane campers are irritating no doubt, but you have to deal with that irritation safely. Pretty stupid to trash a $40k vehicle cause someone slows you down a little.

If there were any justice she would get a ticket also for driving in the passing lane. It is as thought she set out with her cam and drove in the left lane to get an incident like what happen to get her 15 minutes of fame.

Agree with previous posters with one exception; the left lane is the Passing Lane, not the fast lane! At least that was the intent when divided highways were begun. Drive in the right (Driving Lane), use the Passing Lane to pass, and then get your butt back in the Driving Lane.

It would be a great help if 1) actual Driver Ed was required before a license is granted, and 2) the proper terms were used.

After re-watching the video, if I were the policeman, I would have charged her with reckless endangerment!!
She knew exactly what she was doing and the orange item on her dash as well as the traffic safety vest on the passenger seat indicate she has something to do with traffic safety.
The film of her cackling like an old wet hen bragging about taking the video while driving should be sent to the DA for possible prosecution charging her with inciting road rage. Gotta wonder if she realizes she could have caused that persons death, as well as her own.

I first saw this video a few days ago, and I, too, noticed that the person shooting the video seemed to be deliberately creeping along in the left lane, possibly attempting to provoke an incident. "But I was going the speed limit" does not exonerate somebody who creates a hazardous situation by blocking traffic behind them. Both drivers, in my opinion, are equally culpable, but only one had to pay the price.

I did notice she was driving 60 MPH on a wet highway. Is that too slow?? It´s also obvious that the pavement was slippery. Look at the way the truck skids out of control.

At any rate the guy in the truck was wrong to vent his rage and wreck. Could have killed some innocent driver.

Her speedo showed her doing 48. The safety vest can be bought by anyone who cares about not getting run over while walking a dog or changing a tire.

This woman was a troll. While she was passing slower traffic, she seems to have been ready to make a video of a bro-truck roid rage compensator who needs to work out some anger issues. The reason why he got what he deserved is because, while passing the troll, he abruptly changed lanes, with an apparent intention to mess up the troll. Well, he messed himself up, and lost control, and wrecked his compensator truck. He ought to get charged with assault for his cutoff move.

Moral of the story for everyone behind a car in the left lane? Don´t tailgate. Try your left turn signal. Blip your high beams once or twice. No dice? Pass on the right when you can do it safely. But, in any case, don´t feed the troll. Don´t finger, don´t cut off, don´t move in front and slam on your brakes. You´re not going to educate anyone or make them feel shame. You´re just going to be That Maniac who compensates with his nose-heavy Big Wheel truck and backs it into a phone pole. Instead, pretend you´re a a famous, respected, educated, wealthy person who doesn´t want to deal with getting personally involved with some random anonymous motorist who´s doing something you don´t like. Because you have better things to do than get into something like that. Or just act as if Jesus was riding shotgun.

In the state of Florida it is illegal to drive in the left lane. The left lane is for passing only. Also, 60 mph is ten to fifteen below the flow of traffic. Her defense of wet roads is laughable. It rains in Florida daily, wet roads are the equivalent to driving on snow in northern Canada.

This is the perfect exhibition of Comparable Negligence. He should sue her for her part.

In Oklahoma, anything that distracts the driver from "full attention to the road and driving" is a violation. A few years ago, there was talk of writing a new law to specifically forbid the use of cell phones while driving, and it was determined that the current law, as written, already covered the use of cell phones as a detraction.

If the video were posted in Oklahoma, the police could use the tape, showing she was alone in her car and therefore the person operating the phone´s video camera, with the posting information, to obtain a warrant for the female driver as well as the driver that crashed.

She claims there were other cars preventing her from moving into the lane to her right...but he was able to move into that same lane to pass her...therefore she was impeding traffic and creating a dangerous situation.

I don´t like tailgaters, but I also don´t like "road hogs" who think they should control other driver´s speed. My Mom used to call drivers like this woman an "accident waiting to happen" and would even pull over (to buy a drink) to let the driver get far ahead on the road.

Call in Atticus Finch. Only the scrupulously fair lawyer at the center of Harper Lee´s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, "To Kill a Mockingbird," could get at the truth in the latest conflict over the reclusive author´s privacy. The clash erupted again with Tuesday´s release of "The Mockingbird Next Door: Life with Harper Lee," by former Chicago Tribune reporter Marja Mills. To gather material for her intimate portrait, Mills rented a house in Monroeville, Ala., next door to the 88-year-old author and her older sister, Alice, and gradually got to know them. In the book, Mills claims she had "the trust, support, and encouragement"

The tens of thousands of Central Americans who have crossed America’s porous borders over the last year came on the assumption that once on U.S. soil they would never have to return to their countries. The instigators of this influx correctly viewed Obama’s de facto support for amnesty as a flashing green light. After all, how seriously were they going to take U.S. immigration law under a president who treated border security as a punch line to a joke? In 2011, Obama loudly mocked conservatives, the very ones who foresaw today’s mushrooming crisis, as malcontents crying wolf about a vulnerable border. “You

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s stunning primary loss has left a bit of a mess in Virginia’s seventh congressional district, with Democrats weighing whether to invest in the race and allies of GOP nominee David Brat alleging that Mr. Cantor’s backers are pulling money away from his campaign. Democrats, who had all but conceded the general election before nominating college professor Jack Trammell at the last minute, now must decide whether to spend money in a district that leans heavily Republican. But Mr. Brat, in securing one of the biggest political upsets in recent memory, must now find a way to

Jackson, Miss. State Sen. Chris McDaniel has scheduled a Wednesday news conference to describe what his campaign says is evidence of voting irregularities surrounding the June 24 GOP runoff and to discuss his next steps. McDaniel led voting in the June 3 primary but lost in a June 24 runoff with U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran for the Republican nomination. The matter could end up in court. Mississippi College Law professor Matt Steffey says that wouldn´t be the easy way out for McDaniel. "The law makes it difficult to challenge an election," said Steffey, "because in our society that´s the thing that´s supposed to

COLUMBIA, S.C. – Former South Carolina state treasurer Thomas Ravenel has presented signatures to get on the ballot as an independent running for Lindsey Graham´s U.S. Senate seat. Ravenel said he gave 17,000 signatures when he arrived Monday at the state Election Commission in Columbia. Election officials will have to verify the signatures. That process is expected to take about a month. Ravenel became state treasurer as a Republican in 2007. He had to resign months after his election when he was charged with buying cocaine for himself and his friends. Ravenel says he is running to reduce the size of government,

There’s a very simple solution to this Obamanation that’s occurring on the southern border. Enforce the law. By which I mean, deport them. Deport them all, not just the latest huddled masses yearning to live for free, forever, in Section 8 housing on EBT cards. No, we must deport all of the 12 or 20 or 30 million illegal aliens who are turning this country into a Third World flophouse. Can we do it? Yes, we can. A few years back, Marsha Coakley famously said, “Technically, it’s not illegal to be illegal in Massachusetts.” The ways things are going, it won’t be long before

Summertime, and the living is easy: backyard barbecues, beach books, plastic surgery. It’s the worst-kept secret in Washington. Plenty of those glowing faces returning from vacation are the result of a doctor, not a few days off. Summer, especially in an election year, is prime time for nips, tucks and other cosmetic fine tuning. Not that anyone here admits it — in the magical world of politics, public officials and talking heads are genetically blessed with hair that never turns gray, baby-smooth foreheads and barely any wrinkles. And by plastic surgery (or Botox, laser treatments, body sculpting, dermal fillers, pick your poison), we’re

Not anymore. Recently, and incredibly, Grimes officially aligned herself with the most exotic Democratic Party segments by campaigning with the doyenne of the leftist hierarchy, former Harvard professor, and now U.S. senator from Massachusetts, Elizabeth Warren.

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.
