Extreme Road Rage Between BMW and Ambulance

Bimmer driver reinforces negative stereotype for us...again
Not saying the guy in the truck was in the right for driving in the left lane, but really?! Just go around and be done with it...

Strange... Wish it showed what started it all... At least the guy did a burnout as he took off.

PS: I am not condoning this behavior it is extremely dumb, dangerous and doesn't solve anything.

Why would someone drive like an idiot like that in such an expensive car?
I would have just put the lights and siren on and rammed the MF!

Not saying it was ok of the BMW driver, in fact, if I were in the truck I would have just kept going and rammed the car.... but in some countries (maybe not this one) it's illegal to pass on the right. So an asshole driving slow in the left could mean you getting a ticket if you pass him, and people are much more aware about slow left lane drivers.

Ambulance or not, get out of the fast lane when you're not going fast. It causes problems as you can see.

I don't see anything wrong with this behavior. It was part of the instructional video on how to drive at PCD.

Some of you talk arrogantly but this was not in the usa. People have different code of conducts in different countries (actually most civilized countries drive more civilized than in the us of A....), Just the fact that the ambulance driver didn't ram the m6 is an example of that. road rage is mostly an american reality and due to extremely low driving standards required in the US DL test.
The m6 driver is just trying to act like a cow boy or sheriff on duty. he might be an off duty cop. The ambulance driver is abusing his state given rights by running his siren just to use the fast lane. But consider this :

I have experienced driving on american highways in adverse weather with packed traffic (basically no option to change lanes, just drive with the flow), and some idiot american soccer mum in a suv was unsafely tail gaiting when traffic speed was over 75+++ in a fairly heavy rain. This is how you get chain accidents with 7-8 vehicles involved. I tried to warn her with intentional repeated brakes, but she was too dumb to understand i had to do exactly what this m6 driver did. Slow down progressively to a stop on the highway. I could see that american bitch swearing and gesticulating as I did, but then she got scared and froze when she realized i could walk out of the car and come around. Instead i took up full blast so that she would no longer be the car behind me. all lanes were packed, there was no option for me to do anything else to get her off. Tailgating is illegal and dangerous in fast moving high traffic.
That american bitch probably left clueless and hating on bmw's when she was the one that should be thrown in jail.

The left lane is NOT a "fast" lane. It is a PASSING lane. Unless you are actively passing slower traffic to the right, get your sorry ass out of the left lane. I don't care how fast you are driving. Once you complete your pass, move back over to the right so that whoever might be driving faster than you can safely pass you too.

So it's safer to stop in the middle of 75 plus mile an hour traffic in the rain? Makes total sense

I'm sorry, I don't agree with your thinking here. If you don't like someone behind you, move over. It's that simple. Use your blinker and move over.

Here in Southern California traffic is always heavy and generally there is very little room to move over, but if you use your blinker, you will get over eventually. Additionally, it lets the person behind you know that you see them and recognize their desire to move passed you.

By moving over you take out the emotion you were feeling. You don't escalate the situation, you deescalate it. You go happily down the road and so do they.
