Default And this is why I have a dash cam



So, this is why I have a dash cam in my car. Earmuffs Warning: I utter a few swear words... Thankfully, there were no injuries, just some damage to my car.
Apparently, the other driver decided she suddenly wanted to go to a gas station on the other side of the street, and thought she'd just back up and get all the way over to the left turn lane. I was initially worried the other driver was going to say that I rear-ended them. Naperville police issued her an "improper backing" citation, and she admitted fault.

I swear to fucking god 5 minutes back in that area makes me so glad I moved to the boonies. I don't know how I lived and commuted there so long and didn't have something like this happen. Drivers are straight fucktarded, it's amazing how much more attentive and defensive you have to be. 59 makes me want to commit sudoku

Wow. She really got on it when she backed up. How can she not see you are there? Did she even look in her mirrors or behind her?

Dashcam is solid proof. Glad you are OK.

Just a cheap A118C2 from Amazon that I've had for nearly 2 years. Not the clearest, but you can read the plates (select HD on youtube if necessary). The A119c V2 is the newer version.

One of the biggest problems I see on the road. People refuse to inconvenience themselves behind the wheel and make their mistake everyone else’s problem.

Missed the turn? Better slam on the brakes in 50mph traffic to turn RIGHT NOW instead of taking the next strip mall turn lane every 100 motherfucking feet.

Iím doing 0.1 mph faster than the guy in front of me? Better move over to the other lane and pace him for the next 6 miles in case I accidentally pass him while holding up 6 miles of traffic behind me.

Iím supposed to get into the turn lane here? Let me be in the far opposite lane and swerve in front of you at 45mph while youíre trying to pass to get into the far turn lane 50 feet from the light.

Iím going to sit directly in your ďblind spotĒ and stagger myself perfectly so you canít move over and then flip you off at the next light because you swerved in front of me after putting your blinker on and I was still being a stupid motherfucking cunt and not slowing down or god forbid speeding the fuck up so you could move over.

All of this happened on 12 yesterday.

This is so true. U turns in the middle of a busy street, backing up on highways for missed ramps and so on.

I installed Dashcams in all our cars too a couple years ago after getting rear ended on I55. Guy that hit me said he it wasnít his fault..blah blah and it just delayed getting my car fixed. If I had the camera it would have helped explain everything faster.

I think these will be options or standard in cars soon, especially with the rear view camera already standard.

I would also shout God Damnit, and lay on the horn. Just in case the idiot behind the wheel didn't realize that jarring bump they felt was them hitting another car.

This exact same thing happened to me when I was 16. The guy was 83ish and a florist, and when he stopped at the light the flowers in the back of his van tipped over. So he put it in reverse thinking it was park, and then used the gas pedal to boost himself as he reached back there. Floored it right into my car.

He could have easily said I rearended him and totally fucked me over. Even when the cop pulled up, she naturally assumed I rear ended him.

Some dude this weekend decided to pull a U-turn on I55 going north from St Louis. Brakes from 80 mph to 10 in the fast lane to turn at one of those police areas. Almost caused a 4 car pile up.... had my dash cam rolling just in case.

First off, glad everyone is ok and your butt covered on dash cam. I dunno why but your response was hilarious.

All of this happened on 12 yesterday.

When I used to work for a draintile/foundation company, I would drive a F650 with about 30,000 lbs. I was driving on 14 heading back to the shop/yard, then some jackass cuts in front of me and SLAMS on the brakes to make a right turn IN RAIN! I was just inches from smashing the hell out of that car and all occupants inside. Some people....or a lot, can be so damn stupid.

glad you are ok. What an inexcusable brainless move.

It is infuriating how awful drivers are today. Basic rules of the road are optional and its an all about me, not you mentality. Not sure if I blame smart phones and/or the DMV handing out licenses like candy on Halloween, but I would say we have been on a steady decline of driving skills in the last couple decades. I cannot drive more than 3 minutes without cursing and shouting out loud WHYYY?

I drive for a living locally. I’ve seen it ALL. It’s so bad I’m currently looking to get out of driving. It’s so bad, and common, I know what people are going to do 99% of the time before they do it. And that reason is what usually saves their life/property from their stupidity and impatience because 70-100k lbs don’t give no fucks about you.
