    This incident happened yesterday on I-80 in Wyoming. I was going west on my way to Sacramento cruising at 75 MPH. The rest of the story you can watch on this video. I just wanted to add that the driver of the pickup truck got a ticket for reckless driving.

    Did you stop to show the video to the trooper or something?

    What did the pickup driver tell the police his reason was for brake checking you?

    I gave the cops the SD card out of my camera once. Let em have it if it'll get somebody like this prosecuted. I hope they take his license.

    Yes, I too would like to hear his confession. Because no matter what reason he gives for that behavior, a confession is all it will be.
     
    JoeyJunk Thanks this.

    I had a lady on I-84 in Mass stop in the middle of the road to let on ramp traffic enter. I was at 79,500 about 300 yards behind her going downhill with traffic on both sides of me. I mashed the brake pedal as hard as I could and came literally 1 inch from her back bumper when she floored it and shot off to the shoulder. With smoke flying out from all 5 axles I pulled over and had to catch my breath...I stopped at the next truck stop and bought a dash cam

    I can’t tell you how many times i’ve had this happen. They come out of nowhere.
    Had it happen one morning 5 years ago going through SanMarcos Tx. The couple actually called my company and told them I was doing it to them and I hit and ran. Which was bogus. No one made any contact. Company asked them are they sure thats how it happened? They said yes and they have damage to proove it. Company said we and the police have dash cam video of the incident and are willing to do whatever necessary to make it right with your insurance company. They hung up.
