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.
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.

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.
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.

This is what I don't understand about most of these DCWs. The car was obviously in the wrong lane, made a mistake, signalled in plenty of time, so why not just back off slightly and let it get ahead so you can take the exit without looking like a prize bell end?

Fury Road is one of the best channels on Youtube biggrin

Maybe should have a clear warning on that particular clip that someone gets a bit battered though.

Guy at 2:13 is the very same guy as blood pressure guy.

Life lesson- If you are in a road rage situation with a pyscho, do not get out of your car and stand in front of his car. It might not end well.

Just from that comment I'd guess it's a fat man taking a face plant chasing a cyclist. Love that video.

I don't think that was intentional. The car looks like s/he got confused with the green lights from the slip road to the left.

The end of the on-slip was a bit distracting with the previous shunt sitting there.and the learner just forgot the golden rule - make sure the vehicle in front really is going before you go. He totally missed the vehicle in the left lane that the car in front was waiting for.

Not quite ready to get rid of the L-plates I think. Might need clean pants too.
