This is the shocking moment when a selfish motorist smashes in front of a speeding ambulance to avoid a giant traffic queue — but the other drivers have the last laugh.
Dashcam footage shows a Renault Clio parked on the pavement waiting for an ambulance to pass on the right.
Seconds later, a Peugeot station wagon speeds past, followed by the emergency vehicle with its blue lights on and sirens wailing.
The Peugeot then stops in front of the Clio and another car (filming with the dashcam) on the left.
As the ambulance moves on, the Clio seems to anticipate that the Peugeot won’t let the other cars back into place in the queue – it accelerates hard to get past and slides back into the left lane.
However, when the dashcam car tries to do the same, the selfish Peugeot driver accelerates and blocks the lane.
The driver gets stuck in both lanes and doesn’t know where to go.
But then the driver of the Clio rolls down the window and waves the car forward with the dash cam – pointing to a large space in front of him that he can still use.
By working together, both cars ensure the reckless Peugeot driver stays where he should be in the queue.
The poster captioned the video, “Yes, everyone moves for you.”
The footage was uploaded by @funnfactory1 on TikTok and had more than 2.3 million views and 609 comments, with most of the users loving the Clio driver’s quick mindset.
One said: “Well done Renault driver, you are a legend.”
Another said: “The Renault driver, give him a medal.”
A third remarked: “I can’t express how satisfying this is. The Clio driver was great.”
The Highway Code states: “You should be on the lookout for ambulances, fire engines, police, doctors or other emergency vehicles using blue, red or green lights and sirens or flashing headlights, or Highway and Emergency Services vehicles using flashing amber lights .” lighting.
“If anyone approaches, don’t panic. Think about the route of such a vehicle and take appropriate measures to let it pass, observing all traffic signs.”
“Pull over to the curb and stop if necessary, but avoid stopping before a hilltop, bend or narrow section of road.”
This comes after a driver was spotted using an ambulance responding to an emergency.
A driver was also caught on video repeatedly blocking an on-call ambulance.
