Ever Wondered What its Like to Drive an Ambulance?

OK so this isn't quite a dash cam but it is the same kind of principle.  I don't know about you but I felt quite stressed after only watching this for a short time, think ambulance driver is not the profession for me!

Just wondering how it makes the rest of you feel, could you do it?, does it make you feel stressed? does it make you angry that people seem so slow to get out of the way? Are you an actual ambulance driver already? please leave comments below

Lunatics on the Road

This is a video from an Australian news channel, however what the guy says is just as relevant here in the uk "it is a national problem" that we have so many lunatics on the road.   Its great that drivers are now fighting back in the right way, by posting footage of other drivers performing dangerous maneuvers on the internet so that they can get prosecuted

Unbelievable Road Rage Attack Caught on Dash Cam

This is by far one of the scariest road rage attacks that I have seen caught on a dash cam.  Thank goodness that the Aussie guy had a dash cam to capture what went on, which has lead to the perpetrator contacting police (no doubt thanks to news channels and you tube covering it so that he had no place to hide)

Caught on Dash Cam - Night Turns to Day!

This flash of light in the sky was caught on a dash cam over Russia´s Urals on the 18th Nov 2014.

There has been much speculation over what it was UFO? Meteor? Blast?. A meteor-watching blog quotes Marco Langbroek of the Dutch Meteor Society: "I doubt this one is a meteor." He points out that the onlookers already seemed to be aware of a red glow in the sky before the flare-up — and that when the light does appear, it's stationary. "To me, it looks like a fire or series of small explosions and subsequent large explosion or flash fire reflecting on a cloud deck,"

A local observatory also indicated that nothing fell from the sky on the day of the flash. Local officials from the Emergencies Ministry refused to comment on the happening.

Police In Call For Public Dashcam Help

Police forces in England have appealed to motorists who have in-car cameras ( aka dashcams )to help them spot and prosecute criminals.

Senior officers have said the cameras may help catch offenders in specific situations where the police themselves are not present.

Motorists buy dashcams to record whether any accident that occurs to the vehicle is the fault of its driver, or someone else. Motor insurance firms tend to offer lower premiums to drivers who have them. They can be useful in insurance and court claims. However, they can also provide extra eyes on the road for the benefit of traffic officers.

Norwich resident Tony Sutton told the Norwich Evening News he has seen several incidents on his dashcam and supports the idea of the police making use of such footage.

Commenting: "We know the police cannot be everywhere," he noted that dashcams provide invaluable evidence like date and time stamps and also GPS readings on car speeds, which can then help prove if other motorists are going too fast. As a result, they can assist in securing convictions in court.

Use Your Mirrors - Dashcam Recording

Thank goodness that the driver of this car had a dash cam.  We hope that the driver reversing in this case admitted fault, without the guy with the dash cam having to point out that the event and "whose fault it was" was recorded.  However some unscrupulous people would try to shift the blame in this situation that could leave you at risk if you don't have a dash cam

Drivers Risk 60mph Crash to Pass a Drink Between Vehicles on Motorway

The Video below shows the moment two van drivers risked not only their lives but the lives of others when they passed a drink between the vehicles whilst travelling at 60mph.

The video shows one of the vans approaching the other vehicle from the right-hand side, It then straddles the outside lane and the middle lane so the drink can be exchanged. The event occurred on the M5 (southbound carriageway near Halesowen) on the 24 September  and was captured by another driver using a dashboard camera.


 Central Motorway Police Group said it was examining the footage to see if any offences had been committed and would be contacting the owners of the vans.

Ch Insp Jared White said: "Passing items between vehicles while they are moving at speed increases the risk of a collision and is therefore not only dangerous to those inside the vehicles concerned but also to other road users."

Bit of Feel Good on a Sunday! - Polite Pedestrians!

So I know what you're thinking after all the dash cam videos of Russia recently! but really not everyone in Russia is trying to throw themselves under a car and here is the proof.

Being a polite driver that lets people cross the road and change lanes has rewards! pass it on / pay it forwards!

Happy Sunday!

Car vs Truck Crash E40 Aalter (Belgium)

This video was captured 13-8-2014, E40 Gent (Ghent) - Brugge (Bruges), exit Aalter. The Driver was sent to hospital in critical condition (2 broken cervical vertabraes (neck). She was in a coma for a while but got out of it and is recovering exceptionally well. Which after seeing the video I think you will that she is a very lucky lady indeed.

I bet that this truck driver was glad that he had a dash cam to prove that he was not at all at fault in this incident

Dash Cam Catches Swerving Car Narrowly Miss Tractor

A driver who dangerously swerved around other cars and almost crashed into a tractor escaped justice because the clock on the dash cam that captured the incident was not properly set.

The shocking footage was captured by Tony Seva on September 27 as he was driving on the busy A11 dual carriageway in Norfolk.

The footage clearly shows a blue Ford Focus behaving recklessly, cutting in from the left, narrowly missing a slow-moving tractor and then nearly colliding with the central reservation.

Mr Seva said he was driving at more than 50mph and the Ford Focus driver "came out of nowhere" at a much quicker speed.
The incident was reported to police but an incorrect time stamp on the footage meant that officers were unable to prosecute the driver. Norfolk police did however have "very strong word" with the driver in question.

Chief Inspector Chris Spinks emphasized that dashboard cameras were "vital" in investigating incidents on the road.

See the link below to view the footage

Two in Five 'Considering a Dash Cam'

Road Vision
According to new research from the RAC, TWO IN five UK drivers are thinking about installing a dashboard camera.

26% of motorists (thats over a quarter!) think the UK should take the lead in combating 'crash-for-cash' scams, where people deliberately cause crashes in such a way as to make it appear that the other driver was at fault, before claiming large sums of compensation.

The RAC's research shows that 71% of the more than 1,600 drivers it polled believe that introducing in-car cameras would help to cut fraudulent car insurance claims. 39% said they were thinking about installing a dash-cam, just 4% of drivers actually have one at the moment.

Of that 4%, almost three in five (59%) said the main reason they installed it was to record what happened in the event of an accident, with 21% specifically wanting to protect themselves against crash-for-cash scams.

The RAC quotes statistics from the Association of British Insurers describing a 34% increase in bogus car insurance claims in 2013.

The company's head of external affairs, Pete Williams, said: “Accident cameras or in-car cameras are commonplace in some countries where unscrupulous driving practices are a more regular occurrence.
“With ‘crash-for-cash’ crimes unfortunately becoming more prevalent on UK roads, motorists are looking to in-car cameras to protect themselves from being taken advantage of.”
Elsewhere in the study, 72% of respondents said they would consider installing a dash-cam if it brought them lower insurance premiums, and 70% said they thought an increased number of dash-cam installations would reduce fraud.

Illegal U-turn Caught on Dash Cam - Karma Followed Swiftly

Whether you believe in karma or not, there are definitely times when it seems to be served quicker than others. For one driver, there was no time like the present after he committed an illegal U-Turn.

The footage was taken in Queensland, Australia. An unnamed motorist is caught on camera performing an illegal U-turn in the Gold Coast area

There's usually a reason why a U-turn is made illegal, so it's reassuring to see the car that had to slam on the brakes hard to avert a crash was unmarked police car, no less.

Kid Riding Bike Hits Car - Caught on Dash Cam ( kid ok )

Every drivers worst nightmare ending up with a kid on their car bonet. Firstly thank goodness the child was ok, secondly thank goodness this driver had a dash cam to prove that he wasnt speeding round the caravan park had things not turned out so great

A Child riding a bike in a Caravan park flies around a blind corner into the bonnet of a vehicle with a dash camera. I certainly think that that child has learnt a valuable lesson about blind corners and
about sticking to the left side of the road.
Learning her lesson about blind corners and keeping to the left side the hard way - See more at:
