What is being described as a case of “Road Rage Revenge” features a C5 Corvette driver who refused to allow the driver of a Dodge Ram pickup truck merge into his lane on a busy highway near Seattle. The video of the event has now gone viral and unfortunately does little to enhance the reputations of Corvette owners.
We are not sure how long this “dispute” lasted, but it got to the point where the Corvette driver is shown to have put his window down for a “middle-finger” salute.
That’s when the driver of the Ram truck moves just in front of the Corvette and revs its diesel engine. The result, known as “rolling coal”, sends a huge plume of billowing black smoke right at the Corvette driver’s opened window. It takes about 10 seconds for the plume to dissipate and eventually the Corvette driver allows the Ram pickup to merge in front of him.
The video was taken on June 28th in Tacoma, Washington by the driver of another vehicle who watched the action unfold in front of him and has a pretty good laugh at the expense of the Corvette driver:
“I was driving through traffic near Seattle and noticed a Corvette not wanting to let a Dodge merge over into the lane, so the Dodge pulled beside him. As the Corvette driving was rolling down his window and went to flip him off, the Dodge owner coaled him with so much smoke you couldn’t even see the driver in the car. He did end up letting the truck over.”
