Alright first video is some dumbass in a prius just doing prius driver things. He's sitting in the right lane going ~30mph and decides he wants to make a left turn just as I approach.

Second one is some moron running a red during the rain as a white civic or nissan or whateverthe**** is about to go through the intersection. Also V1 false at the end lol

Third video wasn't too bad but I figured I'd throw it in anyways.

I admit to the rolling moto stop. Person behind me doesn't even slow at all just goes right through, then not paying attention probably on the ****ing phone, doesn't notice my high vis LED blinkers(3 on the back) or my arm signal procedes to try to pass me? Driving down the wrong side of a 2-way street, has to jack on the brakes then gives a look on the way by. What the **** person.

New rear cam set-up and mic set-up.

Missed exit, go to the next? Naaaa let's just reverse on the highway.


I saw someone do this exact thing, but on a busy road (US 19) in the median to go straight again... SMH.

So this first one is from my MIL's camera (my wifes old camera I gave MIL the day before this happened as I upgraded the wife's dash camera). A Semi Truck rolls over just ahead of her on the turnpike. Appears he veered a little into the breakdown lane which had been ground down to be resurfaced so it was lower than the travel lanes... driver swerved to get back in the lane and over corrected losing control and flipping.


The driver was hurt, cuts on the head and upper extremities and a broken arm at minimum, he got out of the truck on his own though and was walking on his own. My MIL let him sit in her car and wrapped him in a clean towel and did some basic first aid to reduce the bleeding while medical services were in route. They ended up taking him to the hospital via helicopter and putting him intensive care. Don't know any more details.





Second one is mine from yesterday. A schoolbus starts to pull out from a stop sign in front of me and traffic coming from the other direction, full application of my brakes, ABS and all. at the next light the driver was giving me a dirty look... I returned a WTF did I do look right back at him. I don't have a stop sign and you pulled out in front of oncoming traffic in two directions with no room to do so. Even if he was just creeping out to pull out right behind me, the oncoming direction would still have had to slam their brakes... Idiot in charge of transporting school kids.

They don’t call out airlife and our you in the ICU for a broken arm. I hope he’s OK!

My wife saw a handful of odd or crazy things before I got her a dashcam, and once I did...nothing lol

I wouldn’t have stopped and let him go.

Send that to the bus company. Driver was wrong with cars coming from both directions.

I hope he's ok too. this part of the turnpike is pretty rural so with the obvious injuries and likely other injuries (based on ICU there were probably internal injuries too) the life flight was probably a good choice as getting an ambulance to the scene would take quite a long time. The police weren't interested in the footage at the time... It will probably get shared on youtube with the crash channels at some point.

I let the bus driver pull out as he was blocking the oncoming lane and there was traffic behind me so he would have been stuck blocking traffic... besides I wanted his plate and bus number so If needed I could send the footage to the bus company.

If you haven’t yet, you should. Call the district or specific school and explain what happened and that you have footage, see what they say.

I'm sending it into their Bus concerns hotline as we speak.

South bound on 59, not sure why this van was even in the left lane but in his attempt to clear the lane another vehicle swept in front of him. Next I wasn't sure why he needed to slam the brakes on since there wasn't any traffic in front of him. After a while he finally cleared the passing lane and I got as far away from that lot is possible.

You can see it everywhere people drive in what I call moron gaggles. Groups of cars clumping together with no real reason and plenty of open road.

Nothing a like moron to keep you alert while driving.
