Reacting with a brake check to a tailgater or vice versa is courting for trouble.
These two actions simply do not go hand in hand with each other.
In the video, the cam car - a Mitsubishi Lancer was gunning down the CTE in the wee hours of the morning at a significantly fast speed.
And to its rear was a white Toyota Camry that was also speeding down the expressway.
The Toyota Camry gradually sped up and tailgated the Mitsubishi Lancer.
Having witnessed the provocation from its rear, the Mitsubishi Lancer reacted with a rather forceful brake check, resulting in the Camry rear-ending it.
Despite the collision, the Toyota Camry driver pulled away from the Mitsubishi Lancer before changing lanes and scooting from it.
How do you know if it is a Mitsubishi Lancer?
A resourceful netizen posted a sgCarMart used car listing:
After some poking around, here are the following images of the vehicle in the used car listing:
Does the rear of the car look familiar?
I don't know about you, but it looks pretty familiar to me.

Netizens did not sympathise with the Mitsubishi driver at all.
Instead, they went a step further to call him out for performing a brake check, and some went full savage on him.
