Was kind of hoping a BIB would give an opinion before I put up how it was handled as that could bias a reply.

Both clips - obviously separate incidents - seem to show a pair of utter wuckfits meeting each other, and thoroughly deserving each other.

Beyond that...? Well, we ain't psychic.

so he can just drive into a car because he indicated? He hit the car in the second clip, you could say why didnt he brake but what if there was a car right behind he brakes and gets rear ended and the idiot drives away scot free. The car in second clip was correct distance from car in front.

Let me guess, your "friend" was the one driving the bigger silver (?) whatsit, and, being full of righteous indignation, took the footage to the police - and is now shocked at potentially being prosecuted for driving without due cae / dangerous driving himself?

If so, it just illustrates the typical cluelessness of the typical DCW - so convinced they are in the right that they never stop to ask "does this footage make me look like a dick?" (for things like, I don't know, tailgating in the wet, deliberately driving into another car) before sharing it ...

'The way it's been handled is disgusting.' Really?

Your mate can't drive and deserves all he gets. Why not avoid an incident that you can see playing-out before your eyes? He acted like a prick. All IMO of course.

So its ok for a car in lane 2 to just drive into lane 3 twice with no concern as to what is there? Even worse when stopped he is unaware of any collision or doubtful driving, in fact he pulled straight off hard shoulder in front of an Artic causing it to swerve into lane 2. You guys seriously think this guy should have a licence ? Why would you think a competent driver would just carry on turning into a lane with no room. Theres actually another thread on here asking about very similar scenario where a car comes down a slip road and car in lane 1 moves to lane 2 but slip road car comes into lane 2, asking if a crash occurs who is at fault and the answer was car coming down the slip road. So answer this if the car in lane 3 filming had braked and got hit from behind who is responsible?

I've just watched vid2 for a 3rd time.

IMO....as soon as the idiot in white Ford starts to change lanes ,dashcam hero should be braking ,just a little would be

enough to avoid a collision.

There are literally no vehicles leaving enough distance from the vehicle in front in either clip. Such a depressing st show of idiots.

Edit: Watching it again, if there was contact in the second video I'd charge the driver of the camera car with dangerous driving as they intentionally caused a collision seemingly to prove a point.

The small white hatchback Is more likely careless driving

Really only want an opinion from someone who actually knows the law, if this had resulted in a multiple pile up who caused it? Like I said how do you know dashcam car was not being tailgated, yet again I say he brakes and gets hit who pays? Lots of cars indicate they want to come into the next lane and wait for a space. Im actually lost for words that anyone could say the dashcam car is in the wrong.

How much more of a gap would you like him to leave, the fact there is not a gap makes the manoeuvre from the ford even worse.

There were errors from both parties.

not necessarily 50/50.
