    Ok guys this thread is for posting any bad driving you've caught on camera. Don't really want it full of YouTube videos from all over the world just mainly ones you've recorded with your own camera/dash cam. However if you spot something that is worthy feel free to post the link.

    I'll start with one I posted in the dash cams thread but that thread is more about the actual cameras not whats recorded on them (am listening IG ;))

    Wow, that's awful driving and they're likely to kill someone one day. I'd report them as I'm sure I read somewhere that someone got done by car cam video.

    Not being funny but most people with these cameras go looking for trouble, you did set off abruptly knowing what would happen.

    I didn't say you expected it or do it all the time, but you chose to accelerate towards the ford focus so you could blast your horn where as most people would have seen the car coming, let it pass and carry on with there day.

    I wish I had a dash cam yesterday, some of the stuff I seen was terrible, guy flew through a red light that had been solid red for about 2 seconds at around 40MPH in a 30MPH zone, luckily nobody was crossing or it would have definitely been a nasty accident.

    Nothing mate, been checking my spam box to. After I recorded him/her I did see the car for the next few days at the same time each night, seemed to be on the same route home as me but haven't seen it since?

    And yet another one this morning, white van man (DPD) going through a red light. Can't figure out for the life of me how he did not see or know his light was on red as he needed to go past a line of single file traffic on the opposite side of the road?

    Red light - white van man jumping red light!

    yes may well do that. Couldn't get his number plate but could give them the time and date and they may be able to tell who it was, that's if they give a damn.

    Email sent.

    A potentially deadly, very dangerous mistake. Would you be quite so blase if he'd crashed into a car driven by a member of your family or a friend?

    Or are you that DPD driver?

    should have added that the junction in question has had a number of serious accidents over the years.

    I see people jumping red lights every day, 99% of cars break the 30mph speed limit, why bother filming what everyone already knows? I take it the guys doing the filming have never ever broken a single traffic rule?

    It's amazing the improvement in your own driving behaviour that results from filming, and consequently your own actions being recorded.
