Impaired driver I followed home for 10 minutes yesterday. Pretty scary stuff. Don't do drugs kids.

Wow... Almost t-boned that left hand turner because they took so long to go at that green light.

Why would they?! He wasn't speeding so we wasn't breaking the most important traffic law.

Idiot blows a red light, and as I pass him he is holding his pet ferret. You can't make this stuff up...

Some retard performing an unsafe lane change without warning. In an interesting coincidence, I was having a sneeze at the time. Car was quite insistent that I do not crash into him and instead decided to brake the left wheels. Thanks car.

Need to honk your horn next time. ;) :p :rofl:

/train horn :D
The horn/censor timing is just a bit off timing. Maybe he's starting to slip a little in his old age!

Were you planning on merging left, and then had to change course with that breaking maneuver?

You should submit that one to Mega Driving School on Youtube.

All I wanted to do was just drive straight. But that guy merging in like that made the car go crazy and insisted on braking the left wheels. I started steering to the right because I didn't want to crash into the curb. Car responded by braking again. I guess it thought the other car was still too close. Then when it let go of the brakes is when you see the car jerk to the right.

I don';t know which surprised me more. The other driver, or the car's response. lol

Lol I remember I worked at a car wash when I was 16 and the new Lincoln Navigator thought the dumpster was a car about to crash into it from the rear and scooted forwards...

Technology is pretty amazing but please keep it out of my car... Control fuel, air, AC clutch, etc and that's about it.

But then again, Tesla's crash avoidance and predictions are pretty amazing.

Sorry, my dash cams are out of commission at the moment but I had some idiot in an SUV who was too busy texting and driving. Almost rear ended me in a school zone when I'm waiting for a kid to cross the road. So I confronted him and he says:

"I was just looking at directions, I'm a professional driver, I know what I am doing....go about your business".

Professional driver............my @$$. Professional idiot maybe.

2. This woman stops her car on the highway in front of my development to......take a picture.

I'm honored you would think my video would merit such a reward. You serious?

You each have your own lane there, and he maintained his own lane fine. I don't see a problem with that one.
That's not how the California laws work. Left turn unprotected must yield to all oncoming traffic. What if I was an idiot and decided to go straight or I forgot my turn signal on from a previous intersection? An unprotected left NEVER had right of way.

Left turns shall yield to oncoming traffic.
The driver reaching the intersection first has the right-of-way unless turning left.
When two vehicles reach the intersection simultaneously, the one on the right has the right-of-way.
At uncontrolled intersections, the left turn shall proceed immediately after the oncoming straight ahead driver goes.

Yield to pedestrians, bicyclists, or other vehicles moving on their green light.
