If you're this irritated by a minor inconvenience, I'd wonder how you would cope with an actual annoyance, other than immediately having a coronary.
So many of these dash cam videos just show how bad the dash cam drive is.
Yep, only a matter of time before they have a big accident
Zorban looks to be a case in point - way too fast down a narrow wet country lane
Not to mention one of the YT commenters who thinks that he wasn't going too fast, because probably under 60mph.mad

As long as he only hurts himself, but one fears he will involve others in his accident frown

FFS. It is tts who think the limit is automatically a safe speed that mean they will eventually give every country lane an arbitrarily low limit.

Just totting up on that UK Dash Cams video - on each clip I've given a point for actual bad driving from the "subject", and a point if the cammer made it worse by being a knob.

29 points for bad "subject" driving, 12 points for knob cammers!

Two clips stand out there as really frightening - https://youtu.be/PjeI-XuHbqA?t=437 and https://youtu.be/PjeI-XuHbqA?t=565

Awful.

I would be posting videos constantly if I reacted to minor st like that. hehe

But I have to say (and I'm not excusing the insane OTT reaction), he's fundamentally right though, isn't he? Why does the other driver think he can block a lane for his own convenience? Maybe if people did react instead of ignoring this st all the time, people wouldn't do it any more?

Near me people used to do this on a 40MPH road, there were a number of side-on crashes because of it, and a couple of people got killed. Council changed it to no right turns allowed in the end, making it less convenient for everyone. All because people couldn't wait for a safe gap to turn right.

(Of course the same morons now turn left and immediately do a U-ey to bypass that, so we've had to have a load of bollards installed to stop that as well now)

He's right, but he's a cock about it. A little toot of the horn, change lanes if safe, carry on with your day.

Can't see the point of sounding the horn. Just drive around the obstruction.

Most of these clips are just minor in-convinces rather than "CRASH - NEAR MISSES"

Because there's a teeny, tiny chance that it might filter into that knobber's brain that he inconvenienced someone else. Slim, I know, but how else will they learn?

Or because said idiot just caused one situation, what's to stop them causing another when your passing them (like changing lanes without looking)?

The DCW in the second clip really needs to have a talk to himself

Vigilante chases suspected moped thieves. Skip to 5:15 to miss out the self indulgent crap about the flat tyre.

Stupid to take those sort of risks, he was very lucky that did not go very wrong for him. Seems to be a good turn out from the police, at least they're trying.

What also stood out about the second clip is the use of the horn. Grabbing for the horn would be the last thing on my mind faced with that.

In a situation like that you don't have time to think though, probably hit the horn out of pure instinct. I really do wonder what goes through the mind of people like the Mondeo driver. Do they get home and think "I was a second away from being killed or seriously injured there, I'll be more careful the next time I overtake", or just convince themselves it wasn't their fault and continue driving like a knob?

The horn didn't kick in until after the dashcam beeped to register hard braking. I suspect it may have been one of those moments where the driver braces hard against the steering wheel at the same time as braking and either catches the horn at the same time, or out of reflex.

Either way, he was definitely braking hard before hitting the horn.

Part of me wondered if it was a parody of a typical DCW

He has a way with words.

Guy at 2.13 moans at a car crossing the solid white line early joining a motorway, then he does the same thing crossing TWO solid lines.
