DASHCAM footage captured the moment a Kia SUV blocked an emergency vehicle’s roadway in Nashville, Tennessee.
In the video we see the Kia skipping a line of cars to try to get into a turning lane early.
This Kia’s illegal maneuver prevents the video’s dashcam driver and all following traffic from driving in the correct lane.
The outlaw Kia pulls to a halt as vehicles behind the dashcam driver begin to honk.
The dashcam driver of this TikTok gets out of his vehicle and goes to the Kia driver’s window to explain the problem.
While traffic is standing still on this Nashville street, we hear a fire truck approaching from behind.
The video’s dashcam driver re-enters his vehicle as a pedestrian attempts to direct traffic and help the Kia turn.
Once the Kia moves to the curb, traffic resumes and the filming car encounters another driver who blocks the road in the same manner as the Kia.
The overlay text on the final portion of this shocking traffic incident reads, “If you pull your car into oncoming traffic to speed past a line of cars, you must lose your driver’s license.”
Blocking an emergency vehicle on a public highway is a Tennessee felony that carries a $200 fine if a driver is convicted, reports the David L. Scott attorney’s office.
Ambulances, police, fire, and government or public service vehicles are considered emergency vehicles under Tennessee law.
Many viewers quickly agreed in the comments section of this video.
One comment read, “Bruh it’s literally a fire engine and she acts like the world revolves around her, someone might die because the fire engine couldn’t get there.”
Another user wrote: “Someone’s house is on fire and she refuses to move.”
