Two stubborn Mercedes drivers get stuck in a tunnel, have 40-minute standoff

Large traffic jams in the UK aren’t exactly anything special, but you’d normally expect them to be caused by an accident or roadworks — not two people locked in a strange battle of wills on a single lane road beneath a tunnel.

Brad Haverly uploaded footage of the incident, which took place in Maidenhead in the UK, on Tuesday. The video shows a woman and an elderly man facing each other in their cars, both head-on at a standstill. It looks as though there’s been a mis-communication about who has the right of way, and neither are at all keen to reverse.

As the minutes tick by (and the traffic queue builds), people gather round both vehicles to try and get one of the parties to back down.

Just watching the clip is enough to give you road rage.
