A driver in Poland has learnt to pick his battles more carefully after an attempt to brake check a truck caused him to be rear-ended.
The two motorists were heading northbound on the E28 motorway near to Gdansk when traffic began to build on the road.
The slip-road at the oncoming junction had been blocked by a white truck, causing a small tailback.
Attempting to avoid the bottleneck, the driver of the blue saloon pulls into the inside lane, right in front of the truck.
The car driver appears to take umbrage at how close the trucker is behind him, but rather than speeding up to increase the distance, the saloon driver slams on the brakes.
