Police Pull Over A Whole Line Of Cars Caught Driving On Highway Shoulder To Pass An Accident

March 4, 2019

This is some dashcam footage from I-95 in Doswell, Virginia of a line of impatient drivers who got pulled over and ticketed for speeding down the shoulder to pass traffic stopped for an accident. It brought me great joy. Sure a cop is never there to catch the person when I see somebody doing something equally wrong, but it's at least nice to know they catch these people OCCASIONALLY. I swear, everyone always thinks their time is more important than everybody else's. And they would be wrong. Except in my case, my time is worth pure gold. These people's? I wouldn't trade them two turds for an entire year.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Luc, who agrees everybody gets their comeuppance, even if you aren't there to witness it. Just remember that when you get angry at someone for being a jerk.

    Every one of these fuckholes deserves whatever gets thrown at them. For starters, if you're on the shoulder and you break down then you're obstructing emergency vehicles like tow trucks that will come to clean up the crash, ambulances to pick up corpsey-bits, etc. So fuck anyone who decides the shoulder is a passing lane. Just fucking wait.

    I always want to know how a cop pulls over more than 1-2 cars a time. I thought the process was you pull over if the cop car is behind you, not behind a car 10 cars back.

    Does he just zoom ahead and swerve across all lanes to stop traffic, then get out and individually point at cars that are in trouble?

    Cops ahead at the accident scene, probably radioed ahead to them to block the shoulder or something. There's a cop car in front of them all on the shoulder. I counted 7 that go on the shoulder initially, and they have 8 at the end, so presumably they got them all... Delightful.

    And there's quota in just one afternoon.

    i drive this pretty often and see this ALL THE TIME!!!
    i hope they keep this up... but they probably won't.
    i've actually seen troopers ignore this before.
