Road Rager Passes Undercover Cop On Shoulder, Immediately Gets Pulled Over

March 2, 2018

Note: Language, and a good amount of it. And I certainly don't condone all the things he says.

This is some dashcam footage from Pennsylvania of a driver who's unhappy with the time it's taking cars to merge onto the road, so he decides to use the shoulder to pass them all. SURPRISE: The white SUV was an undercover cop. It brought me great joy to watch because I can't even begin to count the times I've seen drivers do equally dumb shit and WISHED there was a cop around to bust them for it. The police are a lot like pens to me though -- they're never there when I really need one. Then when I don't need one because I'm just trying to set an enemy's house on fire in peace they're everywhere.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Sean F, who wishes for a million more videos just like this one.

    So why was the cop not driving? It was a two lane road and his lane was empty.

  • JJtoob

    Found the location for you. I would argue given the markings that it's not a two lane road, but a one lane road shortly before splitting in three to add a turning lane on each side, despite nearly having enough space to accommodate two lanes. You be the judge:

    I want to add that even if two lanes were made out of that space, drivers wanting to go all the way to the left turning lane from where the dashcammer started would be a nightmare when there's a lot of traffic.

    This reminds me of a video I saw where a guy on a motorcycle beeped at a lawman who was blocking traffic at a roundabout and the lawman decided that was a ticketable offense. I'm pretty sure beeping at someone is not a ticketable offense. But some people think riding on two wheels is a death sentence just waiting to happen.

  • Ollie Williams

    "Improper use of a car horn" is a ticketable offense, actually.

  • GeneralDisorder

    I blame New Yorkers for that being a thing.

    If the cop had moved up and merged, the people behind wouldn't get irate enough to do something dangerous like that

  • JJtoob

    I think he was driving exactly as the signs suggested, yelding to through traffic until it was safe to move. Seeing the location from street view might change your opinion on the situation. This is what the cross traffic sees. The patrol SUV is attempting to merge into a single lane road.

  • Wraith

    Looking from the aerial view, I think road does appear to be two lanes wide for that stretch. I imagine that's to give people room to move up and merge or to move over to turn right further down.
    If the officer was planning on turning left I can understand why he'd stop early, but the patrol SUV isn't even far enough up that he could merge over and doesn't have a turn signal on either. Practically looks parked. Safer for everyone to move up with a turn signal on so someone will let you in. Maybe he was just waiting for the light to change, maybe he was trolling the people behind or looking for someone in through traffic to pull over. As was said, quota time. I wasn't there.. thankfully lol.

  • JJtoob

    Where I live, I think you are required to use your turn signal in merge lanes, but there's nowhere else to go, so it isn't necessary for cross traffic to know you intention. There is no other choice but to merge, but you also have to wait if it isn't safe to do so. What is absolutely not ok is to get so impatient that while you see there is cross traffic still flowing, you decide to drive on the shoulder. Bottom line is regardless of quotas or not, they can't pull you over if you drive like you are supposed to.

  • GeneralDisorder

    Something something quotas.

    That was my thought, this cop was being an asshole and knew that if he just sat there long enough a driver behind him would go around.

    Just another version of the speed trap.

  • Doog

    I can honestly relate a lot to how that guy feels seeing this. I saw a somewhat similar situation one time and am really happy I didn't have a microphone in my car because you would have thought I was part of the Cubs winning the World Series.

    Far to often a situation arises where you think to your self (or at least I do), "God I wish I was an undercover cop right now, because this guy is an asshole". I wouldn't make a good police officer and I know that.

  • Gilbert

    And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why I have the microphone turned off on mine...

  • JJtoob

    You can also incriminate yourself by accident, plus you have to tell your passengers about their being recorded if you need to use the footage in a court of law. At least where I live, that's the case.

  • Talon184

    Good Lord, you'd think the guy driving had won the lottery or something. I think he's trying to prove that he is an asshole capable of irrational behavior too.

  • JJtoob

    He had just installed a GoPro in his car, so he got a little excited to capture instant karma so quickly and unexpectedly. There are instant karma compilations on YouTube, that tells you how popular such clips are.

  • Talon184

    That MIGHT be the case....maybe...possibly...

    ...but I'm still leaning towards the theory that he was trying to demonstrate his ability to be an asshole

  • Doog

    Maybe he was on his way home after winning the lottery.

    Talon be honest though, was that you that got pulled over?

  • Talon184

    Maybe I was the cop doing the pulling over....hmm??? HMMM??????

    Nah, that was me that got pulled over...I'm so ashamed...

  • Doog


    Oh don't take it too hard we all make mistakes. Luckily the police normally aren't around when we do.
