Civilian dash camera captures man being asshole to firefighters and his apology

A guy who uploads videos to YouTube on the channel “The Roads Here Suck” posted this video of his encounter with FDNY Ladder 102.

I like how this guy at first is yelling at the firefighters yet they seem to be keeping their cool. When he gets out of his car we can’t hear the audio but later in the video, the driver provides a summary of the conversation.

This is a great illustration of professionalism and how it can change a citizen’s mind. We all have encountered assholes when out directing traffic. Many times we would love to have a knee-jerk reaction to being a jerk back. However, if you keep it cool maybe as the person drives away they will have the same epiphany this guy had.
