LITTLE CHUTE, Wis. – Dash cam video shot on a highway in Wisconsin shows why you should never tailgate other drivers.

Ryan Seiler recently posted the video to YouTube which shows an SUV closely following a car on the highway.

The driver of the car “brake checks” the driver closely behind, meaning the driver in front briefly hit the brakes. The SUV loses control and crashes in the median.

WBAY reported that the driver who crashed has been cited. The driver who tapped the brakes has yet to be identified.

Police said the incident was unsafe for both drivers involved.

“Instead of taking things into your own hands, if you’re upset at another driver or you feel actions are dangerous, call us. That’s what we’re here for. We’ll certainly go up and investigate those incidents,” Officer Michael Lambie of Fox Valley Metro Police told WBAY.
