    This service truck driver wasn't paying attention until AFTER he put his turn signal on. I anticipated it in advance and so was already letting off the accelerator as I got closer.

    This guy definitely needs to not have a license. I don't care how good of a driver he is the rest of the time, for all I care he could obey every single traffic law 24/7 except these 2 instances right here, this guy is a threat and he's going to mow down a pedestrian, and he kinda looked like the type to drive off after hitting a pedestrian.

    "Surveillance video shows a drowsy driver crashing his car into a Florida toll booth, ejecting one of his passengers. All five occupants of the vehicle survived the crash"

    GRAPHIC



    Mods - Is this ok here or is this thread strictly for Dash Cams ?

    It seems all the toll booth employees are affected by the “bystander effect”. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bystander_effect

    Good thing my wife was paying attention.
    I'll blame it on the giant A-pillar, but I still should have noticed sooner.

    Warning, I have an F-bomb in there.

    Seems you got distracted with something. You should always anticipate this kind of donkey lane change. I usually always keep my hand on a horn in case I get this bs.

    Good job avoiding an accident. You dis at least two things well by moving to the shoulder where there was no object in your path as well as also slowing down.

    On the flip side, it astounds me how often people pull into my path when someone else almost hits them. Common behavior to being cut off on the freeway in Utah is to simply move over as well without checking. People react out of anger instead out of defensive driving. It’s more of a “you’re not cutting me off!” type reaction.

    My head is nearly 3' back from the camera (camera mounted directly in front of the rearview), and the A-pillar on her SX4 really is pretty big. It hides pedestrians in the crosswalk nicely. When I avoided, I couldn't see the driver's door yet, just the front tire.
    But yeah, I was distracted as well. We were having a conversation about what I needed to move to the truck for a service call when we got to the office, and what clients she needed to handle for me, so my brain was in "planning" mode, not "driving" mode.
    Camera would have made the van driver clearly at fault, but I would have missed 3 service calls - not worth it.

    Wow, SX4 seems like a dangerous vehicle if you cant see from A pillar, RVM and camera mounted in that area. I d ditch this vehicle rather than risking hitting a pedestrian if you cant see half of the road.

    After the first time a pedestrian slapped the car (nearly 5 years ago), I learned to move my head back and forth before making a right-on-red. So that just became an extra check, just like adapting to driving a fullsize truck.
    And it's my wife's car. She's much shorter than me, so sits forward and isn't blocked by it as much.

    Quiet week except for this woman raising my blood pressure with this pet peeve of mine. Vehicle or bike STOP DOING THE ROLL! STOP AND WAIT! Sorry I hate people who do the roll trying to shave milliseconds off their lap time drives.

    You would hate driving in Utah. People here will go as far as pulling through the other lane only clearing you barely right as you pass by. I wish people were as tame as in that video lol.

    Granted I'm not on a bike, but I wouldn't think twice about that.
    I'd pause to not scare a bike, but if it was a car as cross traffic, I'm aiming for the driver's door.

    Otherwise you end up waiting 20 minutes to make a left.
