SEE IT: Tailgating goon flips off driver — then crashes

A grinning, tailgating bozo flipped off another driver on Florida highway and, seconds later, crashed into a light pole — and it was all captured on video.

Jeffrey Travis White, 33, of Tampa, was arrested Wednesday for leaving the scene of an accident on U.S. 41 near Gibsonton, the Florida Highway Patrol told the Tampa Bay Times.

Tracy Lynn Sloan, of Lakeland, said the buzz cut goon tailgated her for several minutes on Monday morning, so she took out her phone and recorded him. 

As he zoomed past, he flashed a wicked grin and gave her the finger. 

Seconds later, White spun off the rain-slicked freeway onto a median and smashed into a light pole.

Jefferey Travis White, of Tampa, was caught tailgating a woman in his truck and then crashing on U.S. 41 in Florida. 



“That’s what you get, all on video, buddy,” Sloan cackles in the clip, as White’s battered 2008 Ford pickup lurches backwards across the grass.

Police said White fled the scene, but was arrested Wednesday after Sloan turned the video over to police.

He was facing charges of leaving the scene of a traffic crash, careless driving and failing to wear a seat belt, the Times reported.

Records showed his rap sheet included busts for battery and pot possession.

Sloan wrote on YouTube that she would have moved out of White’s way to let him pass, but there were trucks in the lane next to her.

“I’ve recorded circumstances like this before, catching idiots doing stupid things, but never ever had this happen,” she said.

“Needless to say though, I’ve never seen Karma come back so fast.”

See video: Tampa road rage caught on tape, crash goes viral


A Tampa woman’s iPhone video captures a man tailgating her and crashing his truck after he cuts her off.

The video dubbed “instant karma” has garnered more than 800,000 hits and is making its way around the web.

It happened Monday afternoon on U.S. 41 just north of Gibsonton Drive.

The woman spoke to ABC Action News but asked that her name not be broadcast or made public. Instead, she is going by her YouTube username, Florida Driver.

“That’s what you get, all on video buddy,” you can hear her say while laughing in the video.

Florida Highway Patrol troopers arrested the driver, Jeffrey White, 33, of Tampa and charged him with leaving the scene of a crash.

“He kept spinning his wheels but couldn’t get out,” Florida Driver said.

She added that one of White’s friends came with a tow chain to get him out and that he fled before law enforcement officers arrived.

The video shows he took out a light pole owned by the Florida Department of Transportation and caused extensive damage to the grassy median.

As he drove off, Florida Driver said she drove up and took a picture of his tag.

She gave that picture to police and they arrested him Wednesday.

White has since bonded out.

ABC Action News went to White’s home but no one answered the door.

Florida Driver said she was not ready for this video to go viral. She only put it online to show coworkers, she said. Now she has received more than 5,000 messages in her YouTube inbox about it.

‘Instant Karma’ Crash Video: ‘Florida Driver’ Disables Comments On Viral …

The Florida driver who posted the viral “Redneck Road Rage/Instant Karma” video to YouTube that showed a fellow motorist crashing into the median of a state road in Tampa has disabled comments on the clip after facing backlash and getting cursed out for laughing at the driver’s misfortune.

As of Friday morning, the video had more than 3.2 million YouTube views. It shows a truck trailing the driver for more than a minute before the truck driver eventually passes. The truck driver then gives the finger to the female motorist before losing control of the vehicle and crashing into the median of state Route 41 in Tampa. The female driver then laughs and says, “That’s what you get. All on video, buddy.”

The unidentified woman posted the video on YouTube under the pseudonym “Florida Driver.” She said the truck driver “tailgated me for about three minutes.”

“After about a minute, and me shaking my head, I pulled out my phone and started recording. I couldn’t move over because there were trucks in the right lane, and I sure as heck wasn’t going to speed on a rainy day with the roads being as slick as they were,” she explained. “I was turning left in about a half-mile when this happened. Now bear in mind, that this guy had already passed a truck in a left-turn lane, was tailgating and driving recklessly on a wet, slick road, wasn’t paying attention, and all in all being an ignorant ass. Not once was I mouthing off, I never brake checked him, and in fact until I watched the video after the accident, I didn’t even know he shot a bird at me because I wasn’t looking at him at all, I was paying attention to the road while holding the phone up with my right hand. I’ve recorded circumstances like this before, catching idiots doing stupid things, but never ever had this happen.”

The video clip had nearly 20,000 likes and 2,500 dislikes as of Friday morning, apparently from viewers who didn’t approve of the woman laughing at the crash. In her own defense, the “Florida Driver” said she had been cursed out over her behavior. The woman added that she was “extremely amazed at how rude people are.

Apparently people seem to think that they were right there and know exactly what was going on,” she wrote. “You weren’t there. You don’t know what happened other than the truth that I told. And apparently I did get a comment of someone who he had done this same thing to … thank you for that.”

Some of the comments were “rude, uncalled for, and just downright mean,” she said.

“So because of those hateful warmongers, I have disabled all commenting on this video. Have fun talking about me in your forums, and on Reddit, or wherever else you talk smack on. Just know … I won’t be there. I think my ears are itching … somebody must be talking about me. Where’s my Q-Tip?” she said. “Goodbye and have an awesome and amazing rest of your day. I’m gonna go pet my dog, feed my fish, watch some TV, and sit my ‘fat’ self on my sofa;)”

“A Florida driver has posted a video called “Redneck Road Rage / Instant Karma` to YouTube that has already been viewed more than three million times.

The video, published on Wednesday, shows a tailgating driver pull up alongside a female driver`s vehicle and give her the middle finger while cruising in Tampa.

Seconds later, the truck spins out and goes flying across U.S. Highway 41 before slamming into a pole.”

The female driver couldn`t move over because there were trucks in the right lane, and she wasn`t about to speed since it was raining and the road was slick.

This video is as close as perfection gets this side of heaven. A perfect ending would have entailed the truck catching on fire, the redneck burnt to a crisp, and the female driver stopping to roast a wiener by the flames of the crash.

If you`re having a rough day, watch this video, it will bring a smile to your face.

Road Rage Reversal. Angry driver loses control and crashes after flipping off …

Road Rage Karma

A Florida man’s road rage was captured via today’s ever-present smartphone camera as he angrily pulled his truck up alongside the other vehicle he felt had wronged him. Seconds after heckling the driver, the video captured the truck speeding off in front of the car and moments later losing control and crashing into a palm tree.

Next time you’re “road raging”, you might want to calm down long enough to make sure it’s not you that’s the dangerous driver.

A Tampa, Florida man’s road rage was captured via today’s ever-present smartphone camera as he angrily pulled his truck up alongside the other vehicle he felt had wronged him. After hanging out the window, the man began holding up and shaking his middle finger at the driver. Just seconds later the video captured the truck speeding off in front of the car and moments later losing control and crashing into a palm tree.

According to the YouTube post, the woman driving the car stated:

This happened to me on SR 41 in Tampa on Monday March 24th. This pathetic excuse for a human being tailgated me for about three minutes. After about a minute, and me shaking my head, I pulled out my phone and started recording. He initially fled the scene of the accident, but thanks to this video he has been caught and charged. I’ve never seen Karma come back so fast.

The uncovered aspect to this story is the fact the woman capturing the video of the crash is guitly as well, as she is clearly alone in her vehicle and is video taping while driving – a distracted driving violation if ever there was one. Between the two of them it’s a wonder no one else was victimized by the extremely poor judgement shown by both drivers in this instance.

It is estimated that road rage, aggressive/distracted driving is a factor in 56% of fatal crashes in the U.S. according to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety

The good news, if there ever is any when it comes to road rage, is that a team of European car researchers are working on an in-car infrared camera system that tracks your facial expressions while you’re behind the wheel and picks up that quick expression change from joyful to vengeful that occurs when road rage sets in. The camera is programmed to track what the researchers deemed to be the seven most universal emotions that our faces show – fear, anger, joy, sadness, disgust, surprise and suspicion. The algorithms pick up what are considered to be the very specific facial muscle movements of these common emotions.

The system is currently being developed by EPFL’s Signal Processing 5 Laboratory (LTS5) in association with PSA Peugeot Citroen. Hopefully help for road ragers everywhere, along with the rest of us, is on the way.

Tampa woman films tailgater who then overtakes, flips the bird and crashes …

Tracy Sloan who goes by the YouTube name Florida Driver found she was being tailed closely by an aggressive driver, so she began filming him on her mobile phone before he overtook her, gave her the middle finger and then crashed into a pole.

The footage, titled “Redneck Road Rage / Instand Karma” has been viewed more than 4 million times on YouTube an has allowed the police to quickly identify and arrest the offending driver.

Writing on her YouTube page, she described the incident in full:

This happened to me on SR 41 in Tampa on Monday March 24th. This pathetic excuse for a human being tailgated me for about three minutes.

He initially fled the scene of the accident, but thanks to this video he has been caught and charged. Massive props to the Sheriffs Department and most especially the Highway Patrol who responded to the scene. This moron could have easily killed somebody with his moronic behavior, and my laughing at the end would have been replaced with tears. Needless to say though, I’ve never seen Karma come back so fast.

Angry Tailgating Driver Pays Price for Road Rage (Video)

A female driver from Lakeland, Fla. was recently tailgated by an angry pickup truck driver during her trip to Tampa.

She posted a video (below) of the incident and the angry driver’s unexpected crash into a pole right after he flipped her off and passed her on the rainy road.

“It was my instinct to just grab my phone and start recording,” the unidentified woman told WTSP. “I saw the guy in the truck get behind me… he was tailgating me, and I was getting a little nervous.”

“He flicks the bird! He swerves into oncoming traffic, and I was like, ‘Oh, my God!’” added the woman. “Honestly, looking back, I feel kind of bad for laughing. But at the same time, it’s kind of funny.”

The driver of the black truck was identified as Jeffrey White, reports The Huffington Post. Police arrested him for leaving the scene of an accident, reckless driving and not wearing a seatbelt.

Since March 26, this video has garnered over 5 million views.

While most people have been supportive, the female driver has also been attacked online for laughing (in the video) at the tailgater’s car crash.

The female driver writes on her YouTube page:

While I’m completely humbled at how fast the internet has taken and run with this, it’s quite scary. The comments, while most being funny and witty, some are hateful, vengeful, and heartbreaking. I would NEVER wish death upon anyone. I can’t comprehend what would make a person say that to someone. It’s nearly brought me to tears. I’m a very sensitive soul.
