One thing most of us share with other drivers is that we are not perfect. We'll bend the rules a bit to get where we are going just a tad faster than we would otherwise. We might set the cruise control, for example, a few miles per hour above the speed limit. Nothing outrageous, just enough to keep pace with other cars as we hope not to be pulled over.
A few drivers, however, really take the risk-taking and safety for themselves and others to another level. Posted to TikTok by user @azdome_official, the below video shows one such example. A van zooms on the shoulder of a highway, past the slower traffic of law-abiding motorists. But as you will see, the van driver's joy ride comes to an abrupt end.

"If it’s in Phoenix they have so many various unmarked civilian looking vehicles. Trucks, SUVs, cars. You’d be surprised," writes commenter @yellowzepaz_. "Surprised me."
"Correction," announces @martinmitrovic7. "He's in luck that someone is stopping him from doing harm to himself or others."
"Most likely a California driver," guesses @garystiner0. "They all think they're special.
User @jmichelle7700 says, "Instant karma. Gotta love it!"
"We need more unmarked vehicles like that," says @henryberzinas. "Good job!"
We post videos such as these as part of our coverage because we hope there are specific behaviors drivers can learn and implement to help make our roads safer for all of us.
