The answer isn't as simple as you'd think.
Tailgating is an annoying and dangerous thing to do on the highway, but so is brake checking in response. This short dash cam video perfectly illustrates why both practices are dangerous. It is also bound to split opinion as the brake checking only happened in response to some aggressive tailgaiting. Which driver was in the wrong? It’s kind of hard to not side with the person who ended up running off the road but then again… Just watch the video and you’ll see what we mean. There's not much info out but hopefully the people that ran off the road are okay.
We don’t have any follow-up info on who, if anyone, received tickets, and while this looks awful it still could have been worse.
