I imagine it is very frustrating for fire fighters and other emergency vehicles to come up behind people who won't move over according to law(one of the few good laws). I can see where after dealing with hundreds of a**holes over the years it could finally come to a head.

BTW, since they have this on video did they cite the driver of the vehicle that didn't pull over? Probably not. The firefighters were wrong to lose it but the other guy should have been fined at the very least since his actions actually precipitated the incident.

It aint just fire fighters that have this problem.

-Today a car driving slowly up the mountain with a long line of cars behind them never once used a turnout.

-And what about the knucklheads the drive in the fast lane going the same speed as the guy in the next lane over. Are they totally oblivious to the snarl they create behind them and the danger they create!

If I was a policeman I'd pull em over even if I could not write them a ticket. I'd take their license, tear it up and tell them to walk home...20 miles, in the snow...up hill both ways...jeeeezzzz!...and then they could fire me and it would still be worth it.

By tailgating the car the fire truck driver blocked the car driver’s rearview and side mirrors so they would be unable to tell if it was safe to move over into the right lane. So they moved over to the left turn lane when one was available.

I bet the driver was a woman, was totally frightened by the fire truck on her tail and was driving in panic mode. The fire truck driver is a total putz. I hope his azz stays fired.
