No one likes getting caught in traffic, but if you've ever been tempted to try and get around it by driving on the shoulder, this video may make you think twice:

YouTube user Matt Bentkowski found himself in a jam on Atlanta's I-285 when someone in a white four-door attempted to pass him on the right shoulder. But Bentkowski could see what the not-so-sneaky driver on the shoulder couldn't: the police cruiser immediately in front of him. 

"Don't do it," Bentkowski muses as the vehicle pulls ahead, and the cruiser immediately lights up and pulls the vehicle over.

The video has been viewed more than a million times since it was uploaded Monday.
