yes Couldn't agree more. Cars passing cyclists a little too close is a daily occurrence but for somebody to intentionally follow the car and then really wind the driver up is just asking for trouble. They're not doing themselves any favours...but the trip at the end is quite amusing and acrobatic! hehe

So this Yanis bloke goes tanking up the middle lane, yes it’s legal but I would not go that fast compared to the other lanes and then gets the hump when someone pulls out, minced about then submits a clip where he passes up the inside again, slows right down and then cuts in front of the person that pulled out in front of him.

Are these people for real?

Anyone submitted a clip for 200, as i noticed it says ''If we believe the clip is good enough and reaches the national press, you would earn £200 for two minutes work''.

ESC saved the day at 0:40. Some idiots on here complain about new-fangled gadgetry on cars but I wonder who would rather have seen that car flip on to the opposite carriageway?

3:08 I guess that driver likes sandwiches

I wouldn't stop there, just asking for another vehicle to aquaplane on top of you. He could have phoned the emergency services.

agreed, although I struggle to understand how the DCW thought beeping the horn was required or could have helped

It's a thing you see a lot of them doing now. Just toot the horn at everything

Quite a few of these DCWs I'd imagine. Think of the views they'd get...

Whilst the C-Max driver shouldn't have stopped to let the other car out, the fault lies with the driver of the camera car who showed absolutely no awareness. A competent driver would have easily stopped in time.

Yep, the DCW was clearly in the normal driving zone and did not expect, not surprisingly, some idiot to randomly stop and change the rules of the road on a whim. of course, technically his fault but the CMAX idiot just shouldn't have stopped.

Does this “normal driving zone” include not looking in front of you? If so I hope I’m never in it.

Yes God forbid we should show any courtesy to other drivers rolleyes

DCW was asleep - tt

People who have no patience or courtesy on the roads - tts

Rubbish, very good, reckless ?

Thoughts on "does this encourage" bad driving/aggressive show-off DashCamRacing ?
Should these be censored and removed from the web ?

The traffic is moving very slowly ahead, it's not even up for debte that the C-Max did the correct thing by not blocking a junction.

There was a gap of 4 seconds between the brake lights and the impact, in a 30 zone with heavy traffic and a school has clearly just kicked out. All the signs are there that attention is required.

I'm amazed I have to explain this to an "enthusiast".
