Not mine. The tortuous Taconic, made for cars when they were much slower. Driving this in the dark and rain/snow can be very dicey indeed.

Makes me want to get a dash cam. Pretty cool. Love the "Traffic cop telling me to thread the needle". In some cities, those school kids in the crosswalk wouldn't have had a chance.

Thanks for sharing.

Another thing I didn't think of. When parking mode is on when car is being fixed, can see some of what is happening. 

Also you'll see how the valet parking person handled your car.

Drive around lunchtime in residential areas in the city and you'll see lots of school kids. Yeah, when I walk around newer cities that were built more for cars or the suburbs, I feel like a moving target, most drivers forget what it's like to be a pedestrian.

Not my dashcam and not mundane, but jeez, this speeder.

 

Not the point of the video, but my first thought on watching the first 20 seconds or so was "why are all those vehicles camped out in the left lane?"

Yeah, people do that, it's not uncommon that I see that in my area. Aggravates me.

I'm not trying to excuse the speeder.  But ... if the left two lanes had been open, the accident might not have happened. Although at the speed that car was moving, I suspect it was just a matter of time & distance until they ran into something/someone.

According to the reddit poster, dashcam car going w/traffic at 80 so speeder >100. Suspects speeder, who pulled over and ran, was drunk. Dunno what happened to passenger/s in car that got hit.

School kids......reminds me of when my daughter was at CalPoly Pamona. Students with cell phones glued to their ears walking off the curb to cross the street without even looking. Everywhere!

Dashcam helpful in debunking this scammer. Dude, you can fake it better than that.

Getting passed on Der Autobahn is a whole other level. Truck driver is funny too. Not all dashcam footage is dark and scary. Jump to 04:35.

Driver was just sitting there, WWYD? Most people would have gone ahead and just turned, nothing to get upset about. People are nuts. I would have just driven past her.

Gotta stop looking at the roadcam subreddit. Morbid fascination. Subverting the thread. :mellow: And I'm driving around full of paranoia, opting for the non-driving option more.

From my dashcam, HAK 8762 you asshat, no signal almost turned into me. Totally oblivious. Wide angle doesn't make it look that close but it was.

    • Im quoting myself here (mods be kind) as i really was hoping someone may have thoughts to share. I likely didnt write enough in my last post and didnt think this warranted a new thread. Ive been on a very nice health and fitness routine for almost all of 2019. I lift full body 2x a week (because of work/life sched cant do splits), i stretch almost daily and do kettleball/band/etc golf training routines 2x a week (which i stole from my friend who got it from his TPI trainer). I was "skinny-fat" and in pretty bad shape (relatively) pre 2019. Now, my flexibility has definitely increased (easy to tell from stretches) and ive got big noob gains in lifting for 6 mos now (4 yr break from lifting). Ive lost about 20 lbs of fat and gained a ton of muscle (again noob gains). Note, im a skinny guy in general, always have been, but during my best years I resembled one of those athletic skinny tennis players. Everything about me feels fitter and stronger and more flexible. But my club distances are the same (at best) as pre 2019, and im more inconsistent than before. Without the intimate details of my swing, i dont expect to hear conclusive advice about my predicament, but would love if anyone had any similar stories. I love my swing coach and will continue to take lessons regularly. I find it really peculiar, as i mentioned previously, that my tennis game has completely turned around (ive always played near equal parts golf and tennis). Every part of my tennis game is materially better. Im faster, more consistent, better conditioned, and have a crap ton more power. What the heck is up w my golf swing. Pretty disappointed to be frank.  
    • Thanks guys. I am super curious how new balls compare to these and the relics in my bag. I've gotten to the point where my swing is repeatable again and I'm hitting balls in clusters at the range. I may go to the pro shop at the range and grab a few sleeves and experiment in a few weeks. I'm pushing the ball out past 300 yards again, so I'm assuming the range balls are quite beat down compared to my Maxfli, Top flights and anything else in my bag that's still shiny. If I'm not getting any real appreciable distance gain from a new ball, I won't buy anything. I have almost 10 dozen balls NIB from the late 90s through 2000s and now 22 dozen new balls. I doubt I'll ever need to buy a new ball again. I say that knowing how I spend money like a drunk sailor on leave hahaa
    • I have a few of those in my bags. Balls I was convinced were the ball and I protect them like a mother hen hahaha
    • Hello! Thanks for always answering my beginner queries lol! Yes, green dot was the static fitting done by myself with the chart. I guess in reality this may vary!   EDIT: Plus, a pro I visited the other day to change my grips told me I didn't need to bend the irons because of the lie angle, that the lie angle was ok. He also told me those were sort of crappy, but that's a different story lol
    • Hello there! Was your ‘green dot’ fitting just a static read? If so, it’s really just guesstimate as to what will fit you best. Ping i3-O can be bent to 2 color codes I believe. But for now I would focus more on developing good mechanics and then dive into a fitting. Cheers!
