Here's an interesting one.
Driving through traffic calming chicanes, I judge the oncoming vehicle a sufficient distance away and plenty of room on both sides of road to pass safely, despite parked cars.
As I move through the chicane, the oncoming vehicle deliberately moves across into my lane across the hatched lane divider and attempts to create a head on collision.

Positive criticism appreciated. Would you dominate the stairway by crossing into opposing lane, or stay in your own lane?

The oncoming driver is a dick, it's one of the few videos where I'm struggling to come up with a reason to blame the dashcammer.

+1. Oncoming driver making unnecessary move to dominate the chicane. He's a tool, move on with your life.

I would have to assume that the oncoming driver is in fact a dashcammer too. The driving bears all the hallmarks. Opposite perspective coming to a compilation near you.

This has been discussed at length. Morgan driver an idiot, probably spun wheels on dirt, didn't see middle island thing on exit (it's a bad road design). Peugeot should have spotted it, avoided it and was probably travelling too fast. Simple really?
Maybe watch the clip again? Peugeot driver did try to avoid the accident, he was hard on the brakes and moved over as far as he could in what little room there was. The morgan driver was 100% at fault.

It looks like there was room for the Peugeot to pass on the right hand side, onto the road markings, but that's easy to say after the event. He was trying to go left, and swinging to the right probably wasn't an option at that late stage.

Watching these compilations has made me realise how many angry people they are around us. 80% of these clips could be avoided with either patience or common sense. It’s actuslly rather embarrassing.

And that’s an error which would see you also crash. Never assume...
You tell people not to assume, but give your own version of possibilities that aren't shown on the video.

If the Peugeot was speeding then it’s not as clear cut. Who is to say the Peugeot wasn’t showing off or making a point - or just blind?
There's not a scrap of evidence to say the Peugeot was speeding or showing off. The fact they got on the brakes and horn shows they can't be blind.

The Morgan driver was 100% at fault.

Try not to ruin this thread for an incident that's already been done to death about 10 times now, especially when you're trying so hard to go against the grain.

Deliberate dangerous driving by the other car, if the reg can be read, take it to the police

Both parties have a responsibility to avoid incident and that Peugeot wasn't doing anything like 50mph. Given the attitudes here, I suppose you'll start showing sympathy for the next idiot DCW who drives head on into an avoidable accident when another driver makes a simple error?

Another wrong assumption from you. No I won't show any sympathy for a DCW who causes an avoidable accident.

You've got a really bad way of undermining your bad opinion. Please just let it go.

That's just weird. Perhaps he expected you to stop because he had 'priority'. He was ages away though and if he hadn't driven at you there wouldn't have been an issue at all as he was ages away as you passed through.

Unfortunately you just met one of the many knob heads who are allowed to breath the same air as you...

But as the other driver wasn't speeding (s)he knows (s)he can get away with it and is probably one of the type of people who seem to think anti social behaviour is within their right...(s)he probably went home bleating about having right of way at a road width restriction and almost crashed in to someone who didn't give way...

Maybe, but wheels locked up because hard on the brakes with little time to react, target fixation, it's a little stting peugeot without abs etc.
If he's avoided the morgan, hit the barrier instead by avoiding it, then it would probably be his own insurance paying out, rather than the morgan

In the Pug vs Morgan clip, if it's a single lane road why is there a sign saying Dual Carriageway?

Obviously Morgan is at fault but surely they should have removed that sign when changing the road layout.

DC relates to the number of carriageways, not the number of lanes: so long as the carriageways are separated by something more than a white line (eg the grass strip here), it’s a DC.

So you know differently? You were in the Peugeot and fixated on it's speedo? Here's a question, at what speed does the Peugeot need to be going for you to see the Morgan driver not 100% at fault? You might also want to see how far someone can brake in a couple of seconds - given the Morgan wasn't stationary I still don't believe the Pug was doing 50mph. But we'll never know.

So I'm not undermining my opinion then? Just want to be clear.

Duh! Of course. Ignore me.
