    Typical 4 wheeler don’t look around you until after you make the move, move. That’s how the driver’s ed teaches them in Austin. Let’s see if we can guess what kind of car it was? I guess prius.

    Yea, stupid 4 wheeler but I have a feeling the truck driver had enough time to stop? I mean I don’t know how fast he was going but as soon I saw the 4 wheeler brake checking the FedEx truck I would have start slowing down a bit.

    Offending 4 wheeler jumped to that lane to impatiently pass the car he was following up the ramp.

    Then realized the ramp has run out and he’s going to get sideswiped by that car forcing a merge.

    All without any regard to yielding to interstate traffic.
     
    RockinChair, Boondock and InTooDeep Thank this.

    He couldn't have slowed down fast enough to avoid rear-ending a stopped car.
