We're not sure what this Mini driver was attempting by slowing down in the extreme right lane of this Australian freeway but the sudden braking caused an SUV to crash into its rear.

USA - Congested traffic has the potential to irate motorists. The longer the delay the more likely some will become desperate in their bid to overcome huge delays.
