We’ve all been there before: you find yourself sitting in traffic, saying expletives under your breath and randomly honking every few minutes when out of nowhere a car flies by you driving on the shoulder of the highway. You can either do two things: follow suit, or you can sit back and hope he or she is pulled over for trying to pull a fast one on everyone.

And here’s hoping you don’t do the former because chances are you’ll end up like the person in the video below. Check it out thanks to driver Matt Bentkowski.

Well that was fast.  This was filmed by Bentkowski in Georgia. And now because of this footage we all get to wonder how the busted driver explained to the cop why they decided to go ahead and drive on the shoulder.

While you don’t want to be the tool who drives on the shoulder, you also don’t want to be the tool who uses their cellphone while behind the wheel.
