That video is crazy. Glad he is okay. What was the silver vehicle even thinking!?

How would insurance work in that case for speeding? Would you just not show the video? I'm just curious, unless because there's no speed in the video you can't assume it?

This person cut the turn into my lane and cut-off the driver making the right turn onto the road.

Like a moth to the V10 flame ;)

By the way, you may want to look at putting a small piece of thin EVA foam between your dashcam and its mount, if it’s a wedge style cam. It will help eliminate the buzzing/rattling that tends to happen over time as the slight curvature of the windshield eventually bends the mount side to it, causing a tiny bit of separation from the camera body.

Street Guardian includes a few with every such camera they sell, just for that purpose. See item 16 in the numbered/labeled pic that shows all the stuff that comes with it below. They don’t list them alone for sale on their website, but IF you happen to have a dashcam that uses the same or nearly the same form factor, you could probably call them and ask and they’d send a set to you cheap. Might not even have to trim anything off it.

Thanks, I will try that too, for my cam.

I also think I have secondary buzzing coming from a piece of trim on my steering wheel! It’s driving me NUTS, as the part is backordered. When I apply pressure on the trim, the buzzing on my wheel goes away.

It's hard to see from the video but the white two door car on the left decided to make a right turn from the left lane, cutting the truck off two cars in front of me. At least they had the courtesy to use their turn signal :D.

Like moths to a light, the v10 draws them in...

Short shifting away from the light, so I can 1) listen to my daughter, and 2) not get pulled for a loud exhaust — I see this Mustang trying to catch up. LEOs love to sit on that stretch of road. He does a fly-by @0:17 seconds. I saw him hauling ass to catch up. He was getting stuck behind me, at the each cycle of lights.

I guess I “lost”! Next, a Mercedes mini-van pulls out @0:49. Cars pull out like that all the time, through that intersection. Good thing I “lost” the race. Yeah...no thanks.

Gotta cross all the lanes of traffic...
