Perhaps the roads would be a better place for all of us if there were some way for drivers to check their egos at the car door before sitting behind the wheel. Something about trying to get from one point to another on public roads causes some people to become small-minded and confrontational.
Posted to TikTok by user @worldwidecrashes, the video below shows how a small episode between two cars trying to take left turns in opposite directions results in the police having to resolve the ridiculous conflict.

"This could have been so easily avoided," writes commenter @karma_inhereted_74.
"Mazda was in the wrong, but both are immature for not moving," says @lucid_dd. "Wasted the cops' time."
"Do none of y'all know how to drive?" asks @rymckewin. "Look at the yellow line on the left. The Mazda shouldn't have even been there."
"Ah, the classic battle of egos," observes @liar.io, who clearly has seen this sort of thing before.
"They act like kids," writes @idrxp0n. "Just move."
Video watcher @ddenham3 says the clip shows "two people with too much time on their hands."
"I would cancel all of my plans and sit there all day," writes @idrivealamboyoupeasant. "I'd win this."
"Yup, I deal with this every day, states @kriskris9970. "If you don't know how to drive and follow the rules of the road, you should not be driving."
