Sparky... Kevin asked you a legit question, I'd like to know as well. Your video seems clear and crisp. Does it mount to the dash or inside of roof? What brand is it?

Re: Post Your Dash Cam Videos Here!


Another boring dash-cam video that (someone who shall remain nameless) will probably make some snarky remark about since he's not smart enough to not watch it:

+ YouTube Video

I hollered out the window at him and scared the living crap out of him. He almost crashed, then turned around and said "F#(k you!!!"

A classic "Wheel fell off!!!!!!"

I love the live, real-time radio announcement. "Problem" as the truck starts to veer, and "left lane is closed" as the axle and tires roll by.

Somebuddy was texting, drinking, or otherwise not paying attention.

And the front of his truck shows it.

What he was doing was completely legal here. Is there something wrong with that where you are?

Actually cyclists have to obey all traffic signs and signals. The only time they are allowed to not obey them is when they are not big enough to trigger a green light. The cyclist didn't obey the stop sign for one.

My SIL hit a cyclist when he blew threw a stop sign. The cop said he's lucky that she doesn't sue him for the damage to her van. He wanted her arrested. It took 15 minutes for the cop to get it through his thick skull that he blew the stop sign and caused the accident.

Running stop signs and lane splitting are not legal here.

Re: Post Your Dash Cam Videos Here!


I wondered if he stopped at the stop sign. On my screen, it looked like the tiny image stopped. I assumed that he was objecting to the cyclist and the car being side by side in the lane which is legal in CA.
Actually cyclist have almost exactly the same rights as cars and if a cyclist wants to drive in the lane it is just like a car. Most cyclist ride toward the right so faster cars can pass but if you are going the same speed as cars then acting just like a car is completely legal.

Sometimes it does seem like cyclist and motorcyclists think they are above the law but then the same can be said of some car drivers also.

Lane Splitting is legal in CA and should be the same everywhere just like a right turn after stop. HOWEVER, many motorcyclist don't understand the rules. Like on a freeway, you can split between the #1 and #2 lane, which is mostly the space between the car pool lane and the fast lane. As a serious motorcyclist and former serious cyclist, it does amaze me how may idiots do unbelievably stupid things on both.

He's in Iowa, do you commonly apply California law to other states?

Here's a fun one.

The red car held on his horn until he was passed the truck. Obnoxious much?

He blew the stop sign where I was about to turn. Good thing I wasn't 3 seconds earlier eh!?

I also realize I say the exact same thing every time someone does something stupid - "Holy F***"
