Explorer Interceptor Teaches Us Blinkers Don’t Mean Jack

If You’re Going to Force Your Way Into the Left Lane, Make Sure the Ford Explorer You’re Cutting Off isn’t a Cop

Whether you live in a mega-city or a small town, a-hole drivers are annoying. It doesn’t matter if it’s tailgating, speeding, driving slow in the left lane, or other shenanigans, they’re rude and can be potentially dangerous.

But, what about using your blinker to (forcefully) merge into a lane? This YouTube video shows what many folks may consider to be two possible things:

  • A) An asshat cutting in front of people, and justifying his actions by using his blinker
  • B) A sensitive cop that didn’t have his morning donut and felt the need to prove a point

This dashcam footage clearly shows a white Toyota Sequoia making its way from the far right lane to the far left lane. It promptly turns on its left blinker and gets in front of the white Honda Accord, causing it to abruptly step on the brakes (judging by the brake lights) to keep it from getting too close, or even colliding with the Sequoia.

Furthermore, the Sequoia keeps its blinker on and aggressively squeezes in front of the Ford Explorer, which happens to be an undercover Interceptor model. If you look carefully at the moment when the Sequoia forces its way in, you can see that its left rear tire gets extremely close to the front right of the Explorer.

What’s your answer, A or B?
