If you watch the car in the far left lane tailgating, you'll see he's the one that cuts all the way across four lanes and doesn't make it to his exit without driving over the median.

Link is to the 0:26 timestamp when the action happens:

The "God would you go on!" was for the dummy in the SUV who was blocking my view of cross traffic because she was too scared to execute a right turn on red. Now I just sit there and wait until my view is clear....not chancing this again.

100%.
This is why I LOVE to take my car out early summer Saturday/Sunday mornings. A lot less people out on the roads.

I know exactly where that is. Right at the Braintree/Boston split.
I bet there are lots of accidents in that area from people merging on from Braintree/Quincy or getting off going towards the Expressway into Boston.

Correct!
It's a terrible stretch of highway.
I was involved in a multi-car crash there many years ago.

It went like this:
Car A was merging on from the mall exit and cut across multiple lanes to get to 93N, cutting off car B, who slammed on it's brakes, getting rear ended by car C. Then car D rear ended car C. All of them came to a stop. I was driving car E, and stopped inches from car D's rear bumper. I was so pleased with my driving skills to pull that off!
That feeling didn't last long, because then car F rear-ended me, pushing me into car D.
Nobody was hurt, but the guy who hit me immediately started complaining about his neck.

Now I leave a lot of room in front of me when I go through that section.

Wow. Yeah, that is a pretty dangerous stretch of highway for sure. Too may on and off exists too close together and everyone is going pretty fast as it is a highway. Crazy.

This is why I sold my Harley after moving to Florida, too many buttheads behind the wheel. You've covered 2 categories of Florida drivers, I'd say there are a few more, a$$hole, and douchebag come to mind, here's to not coming across them in the near future.

Not me…Been riding Harleys since the 70s….I own three and it’s a tough decision between which bike or the Mustang…Florida drivers are just as bad with the Qtips…and yes hopefully we don’t cross paths with any in the future.

It is funny how in most of the "cut off" videos the dash camera owner prioritizes car signal over brakes. First they push signal, yell and then brake. And then the yell again.

I installed 4K Front and Rear Dash cams with GPS, with 256GB SD cards in all of my cars. I HARD-Wired them for so the Parking Mode Monitoring will be working 24x7 with battery run down protection. This because of all of these idiots, and insurance companies denying claims because their are no witness or he said she said, "they will not pay". My son called from college last week telling me the 4k videos are clear as day and anytime anyone, Day or Night came near his car while it was parked, the camera recorded them. He is finishing his Computer Science Degree at college.
