Now that I have a dash cam, it looks like there will be an endless supply of bonehead driving mistakes to post up, so here's the thread.
Here are some samples from yesterday.
There might have been 50' between us when this BMW did his unsafe u-turn. The car's so new, it doesn't have a license plate yet. I don't give the car a 10% chance of surviving a year
Lead-in to last minute offramp change. Passing blue minivan decides not to pass between the big rig and me, but to pass us both. At the end of this segment, I've just merged on the highway, and watch the minivan. Apologies for the reversed left to right video. That's how the rear-facing auxiliary camera works.
The blue minivan in the lead-in video cuts in front of me trying to take the offramp, decides he can't make it, and jams on the brakes - so close that I can read his license plate. That means he was about one car length in front of me, at highway speeds.
I'm not the lowest of the low, but I am the slowest of the slow (49.5 mpg over 42k miles in Scion xB)
