Which it kind of does, as neither we, nor anyone we know ever heard the heroin rumor in the first place.
And finally, a driver in Russia got some sloppy revenge on a driver who refused to let him pass. After a bit of back-and-forth that looks like it could go terribly wrong at any moment, the wronged driver makes his feelings known to the pass-blocker in a way that driver isn’t likely to forget. Especially since another driver captured it all on video.
