That Chevy getting out of the way greatly helped in avoiding a multi-car collision.

Insurance wise, ignoring human instinct, would it be better to just T-bone the retard?

Also double-yellow at his turning point? meaning he wasn't supposed to turn there regardless of oncoming traffic. Jesus, some people

You actually can turn left over a double yellow into a driveway, as long as you do it safely and WITHOUT impeding traffic, and there's no signage prohibiting it. This idiot did neither.

If you cause traffic to stop behind you, or block the lane, that's impeding traffic. It's too bad this is ingrained in some drivers only as "I can turn left over yellow lines." Whenever I tap my horn behind someone blocking/slowing traffic to turn left over yellow lines, they usually get pissed off because they don't remember the "no blocking traffic" half of it.

There's so many idiot drivers out there now, it makes you want to go to ICBC Driver Services, pick up a pile of free Drivers Manuals so that you can hurl them at the other drivers as you continue by.

Had issues with "system failure 2" using a 128gb card for the first time with my dashcam, but caught the important bits.

God damn.

1. Didn't get the first part, but he was behind me turning right and while I was still checking for traffic before turning right, he passes me while turning, going onto the left-most lane while doing it.

2. Then continues doing random swerves.

3. Then he stuck behind the pedo van for such a long time going 30-40 then finally decides to change lane without shoulder checking when i'm just about to pass the pedo van. Added screenshot of license plate in front of the video...so damn lucky that the jeep had just passed on the oncoming lane.

I was just having a relaxing drive home...

Looked around the car, specifically the fender and it doesn't look like it. I think the loud thunk was my water bottle hitting the floor. Tried it out earlier and it makes a really hollow sound lol. only other sound i can think of that relates to the loud part could be the ABS? it definitely kicked in.

Not sure if I did anything wrong here waiting for a safe time to turn but the guy started honking at me nonstop before he decided going around me into oncoming was a better idea.

^Kingsway and Gilley is super dangerous to make the left turn, huge blind spot. You did the right thing by waiting

I hate left turns that don't have their own turning area to pull into, I'd rather just make 3 rights to make the same turn. Better for traffic flow, and usually safer.

Looks like they're just mad that you're not as much of an impatient douche as they are.

I know it's not quite on topic, but I didn't want to start a new thread... imagine something like this happening here...

the shiddy 2.5L Altima can go die in a fire.\


BTW - what software did you use to get the PIP for the rear??? or does the cam software come with that built in? thanks.

The highway 17 from Surrey to Tsawassen has a couple spots like that. Before they fixed the one heading towards Central City, you could get air off it. Even now with the "repairs" they did, you can still get lift out of your vehicle. Great fun when you're attempting to pass buddy in his rig, and not expecting the big jump.

I'm thinking you have to be "in the intersection" which you were only sitting on the crosswalk. If the light turn yellow, you can only legally turn if you're in it. Not sure why you weren't, it's not a narrow intersection.

Altima was just bat shit crazy.

fuck those impatient dipshit drivers, they're the reason why my commute sucks. Fuckin' causing accidents with their dumb ass tendencies and retarded driving.

happens to me every now and then at Renfrew and Hastings when i'm turning left to Hastings eastbound from Renfrew

there are some fucks that honk when me or the person up top can't exactly see the oncoming clearly and hold off on turning left until either better vision or its yellow

honk it up dipshit, the more you honk, the slower i'll turn.

The way I saw it in that particular instance was the further forward I moved up the less I could see due to the pickup in oncoming blocking most of my vision already, if I moved up truck would be closer meaning even less visible.

And Acura604 I use Sony Vegas Pro, learned from some YouTube videos haha
