None of you witnessed it.
We can all drive fast, but it takes a special kind of moron driver who deliberately shows off and endangers the lives of other road users - not just once but multiple times as can clearly be seen in the video, Especially appalling is footage of him nearly forcing a Merc into the central res by accelerating hard and undertaking at speed from the mid lane and almost hitting the Merc's nearside front .That Merc driver was forced to brake heavily and swerve towards the central res and only missed hitting it by a hairs width - and who know what the consequences would have been for that driver and others drivers in the vicinity had that happened - possibly carnage . .

Oh and for the poster who asked how I got his face shot that was easy - W4YKS slowed up in a 50mph camera zone due to road works thinking that he would make faster progress in one of the inside lanes but he got boxed in wink

Anyway BiB believe they have a enough evidence to pursure a DD charge - if successful , then W4YKS is looking at least a 1 year ban , having to resit / pass his driving test before he is allowed back on the road - result !!! oh and sky high insurance premiums - double result wink .

This, When the neighbour phoned up saying the fire alarm at home has been going off for 10 minutes and the house is full of smoke, after calling the fire brigade and directing them to the fire, I MAY have drove overtaking everyone and moving to make swift progress, luckily I made it before the fire brigade as it was a tea towel on a electric hob, otherwise they've would've to entered using the big red key for almost nothing. Time and a place, would never have drove like that without the circumstances.

+1 on getting a life definitely, you must be a right laugh at a party rolleyes

Exactly. I have driven like a fool (luckily at 2am) to take a cat to the vets as it was in considerable pain. I have also seen people driving recklessly and thought I should report them, however, after a cup of tea and a biscuit, I can't be bothered anymore.

If someone is driving wrecklessly or dangerously, and the OP, or anyone else for that matter, has recorded it on a dashcam, then it is their prerogative to submit it to the Police, as a witness. The Police will then decide if further action is necessary.

As with any crime, the Police value the public's eyes and ears, although some motorists may not like the idea of 'vigilantes' with dashcams - although most of us should have nothing to fear if we are sensible and courteous.

However, I do think the OP was wrong to post on here, and the tone is too damning and self righteous.

mmmm...It didn't look like his house was on fire when he was abiding by the 50mph speed limit in a camera zone - but i kinda liked the one from another poster that maybe he was rushing to renew his expired MOT wink

Whatever - he's getting nailed wink

I'd still like to know how the OP kept up for 15 miles if the driver was driving so fast, undertaking on the hard shoulder, etc.

I'd laugh if they both end up with a DD charge.

What I actually suspect happened is the OP would move out the 'fast lane' because he was doing 70 and when the 911 got bored and went past on the inside he decide to get 'revenge'.

Probably, as is the way with dash cam warriors we see out on the road nowadays, I've had enough of people's terrible 65mph driving that won't let me past and more often than not they point at there rear view mirror, used to confuse me at first till I thought, ohh I'm probably on YouTube now.

Same with people going at the very last second at a roundabout that I have already started to come across, beeping shouting and pointing at the dash cam is almost always the reaction.


What a crap world we live in where the standard of driving is completely changed from average to poor, all in the name of YouTube views.

Quite. Fine, go ahead and involve the Old Bill but why post on here?

Someone allegedly driving dangerously with no mot or insurance is getting more support than the OP. You can't make this stuff up.

OP reveals himself to be a snitch and immediately loses the trust and respect of every single person he tells.

Way to go.

It's kinda ironic that most on here have responded with negative opinions wrt to me reporting this guy - why do you think that is ?

As a Porsche owner since the late 80's - a '88 3.2 Carrera , '51 996TT and currently 997TT , I was really embarrassed to witness another Porsche owner's appalling driving. W4YKS is in a small minority but he is a major reason why other sensible Porsche owners/ drivers get a bad image.

Every single Porsche driver has probably experienced not been let out at a junction but yet it's never a problem when you are driviing something else....or the yob in a Corsa who sits inches off your tail pipe - familiar to any of you ?

Regardless of the fact that W4YKS was driving a Porsche , I wonder what the opinions of some on here might have been if the guy had caused a serious accident and there had been people killed ? For those of you on here long enough , then go search what happened to the owner/driver of a 928 a few years ago.

IMO he deserves to be put off the road - we are all entitlled to our opinions , but what anyone else thinks of why I reported the guy is really none of my business. - that my last word , honest wink

David,

It is not your job to police the roads armed with your wife's dashcam.

You are precipitating and encouraging a culture of dashcam policing by the public and it won't be long before the 70mph outside lane hoggers are sending in footage of people doing safe overtakes based on them speeding as "it's against the law".

There were no accidents in what you witnessed, leave the police to do their job. If that person drives as poorly as you state he will eventually be caught without your help.

Looking at your profile suggests you're not telling the truth?

And BTW saying "he's nailed" and second guessing what offence he will be charged somewhat gleefully doesn't come across as someone who isn't excited by the prospect of your footage helping prosecute the driver.

Thoroughly unpleasant behaviour in my opinion.

If you want to police the roads, join up as a special.

The OP comes across as quite special already.

Maybe the better question is why do YOU think that is?

Why did you originally post this? Not content with reporting the guy to the police, you post on here. Why? You want to publicly shame him as well? You want a medal from the forum? Maybe you should go and have a cold bath and reflect on what folks have replied, instead of continuing to project this self-righteous smugness.
