This YouTube video shows an exchange between a truck driver and a police officer in Illinois. When the officer asks the truck driver why he was honking his horn, the man says he did so because he saw the officer was using a cell phone and speeding on wet roads. It isn’t clear how fast the officer was going, but in the video the officer goes from arguing with the truck driver about his speed to later thanking the man for looking out for the safety of those on the road.

“You were just trying to help me out, help me drive safely,” the officer says just before the 4:00 mark in the video. “I understand that.”

See the video above for the full exchange.
