Anyone have footage of other people being idiots on the road? Here's two of mine, within one week of each other.

Oh and a warning, bad language included, so make sure there's no kids around.

I know Robb has some he showed me at last month's meet, got some good use out of his PP brakes.

What kind of dash cam is that? Where you @ Hooters this weekend? You sound just like me when I drive and this shit happens lol.

wow that's pretty bad! what city are you in? apparently people don't pay attention there.
Spring Hill in Hernando County. All old people.

The first guy I got next to while holding the horn, the both of them just turned and stared at me with the most dead/blank expressions I've ever seen. Almost like they were upset I didn't hit them.

Second one the guy must have been in his late 80's, all I saw was the back of his head. Yup, the whole time he was going across the road all I saw was the back of his head, he never once looked at oncoming traffic.

The second one could have been really ugly if someone was next to you and you couldn't change lanes. Obnoxious.
I could have braked harder and stopped in time plus used emergency brake. I have pretty quick reaction time/reflexes, so I had already looked in my mirror and judged my course of action. I've actually had a couple more of these before I got the Dash cam.

It's a Mobius.

I was at the meet, black Mustang with white stripes, but I left around 2. Just too hot outside and I had to work overnight.

There would be so many more accidents but for the grace of others. Dolts.

But stuff like this is why I don't text and drive. If I were one of those 90% of other people, and I get 90 because almost anytime I look around I see someone with either their phone or makeup infront of their face, it would have been game over.

Holy shit...good to see other folks let the F-bomb fly too :D.

That is crazy that these both happened so close to each other. Glad nothing happened.

And that's the worst part of driving in Florida, the surplus of antiques, idiots, and antique idiots on the roads.

I need to get one of these. Can you give details of your setup? Are these hard wired into the car or are they plugged into the cigarette lighter outlet?
