    Delivery truck driver's dash cam captures shocking video on Iowa's I-80

    [​IMG]

    The Iowa State Patrol released unbelievable dash cam video as a reminder to drivers to slow down in winter weather conditions.

    The video was shared by the Iowa State Patrol on January 17.

    Troopers write:

    District 3 – Council Bluffs

    This shocking dash cam video was taken today from a delivery truck on I-80 in Western Iowa. The AMCON Distributing driver, State Trooper, and occupants in the pickup truck were not seriously injured.

    If you have to be out driving during inclement weather, please remember to slow down and be aware of the road conditions.

    You can view the video below.

    The tanker moved over and slowed down, but Mister I Can't slow Down for 20 Seconds was determined to pass.

    Notice the dry van driver was doing the same as the pickup... luckily he didn't crash too.

    "Ok, well, it's no longer a simple winch-out, is it?

    'Scuse me a minute, I'm gonna start writing some tickets for Mister Toofast, here"......

    I cant tell if the trooper has his lights flashing in the rear or not? The idiot got what he had coming for not only driving to fast for conditions but not moving over for the trooper/car on the shoulder.

    Actually he doesn't have lights flashing, so white police car in those conditions means he never saw the troopers car....

    No, he saw the car but was insistent on passing the truck.

    I hope that pickup driver was ticketed for Aggravated Boneheadedness.

    Well it didn't appear so with that camera angle, they're flashing but that idiot was in a hurry to go nowhere, so it didn't seem to matter...
