No need to fire until you see the fear in their eyes and you get a little paint on your giant chrome crash bar.
Dash cams make object appear further apart than they are. That really was a lot closer than it looked.

"No need to fire"? I ain't hunting deer here. I see someone who appears to be pulling out on a red light without a legal right-of-way. Whether it's close in your opinion or not isn't relevant. It's MY life on the line. Try Googling Defensive Driving.

What you don't see is him/her pulling out behind me.

Because it's obvious the drivers EYES are not aware of my presence. But eyes are not omni-directional like EARS are.

Besides, in case you didn't notice..... it's NIGHT. Unless you think I'm toolin' home wearing Gen 4 IR goggles, I can't see their peepers.

You are correct. Cameras can be deceiving.

Relax. I wasn't there. So, I don't know what it was like.

It's sad that I know that parking lot. You've shown it several times.

Looks like they tried to continue on their way on the wrong side of the road.

Yep. She just got in the left turn lane, went around me and the truck behind me, and kept toolin' along down the wrong side.

I'm not gonna go all the way back through your thread but it's probably the only video you've shared that's worth taking the time to post...

Happened to me earlier this year, I helped the old lady turn her car around and continued on my way to church.
