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.

    • Well, apparently they weren’t printing my tickets...  
    • I tend to like it. In most cases, companies changed simply to match what was already happening.  People would, and always have, taken “sick” time for your aforementioned fun things, and still come to work while sick. Trying to verify and manage sick time, especially the one or two days when someone is (or claims to be) sick enough to want to stay home, but not so sick as to warrant the visit to a Dr, is a nightmare.   Now the employee can use their PTO however they want, and the company benefits from an easier to manage system.   Just for fun....the day most often called out for being “sick” is the Monday following the Super Bowl.  Imagine that.      Yup
    • I disagree, and both companies I have been at so far have had the 1 large PTO bucket, and I can't say I've really ever seen someone in the office who was so visibly sick that they shouldn't have been there.  Plus, for people who rarely get sick, the separate sick and vacation buckets would just mean they would either end up accumulating weeks upon months of sick time, or lie about being sick so they could actually use those days, especially if their employer has a "use it or lose it" policy where you can't roll unused days over to the following year. You just said you hated that policy of 1 PTO bucket, but then you said given the choice between those two policies you would choose the 1 PTO bucket. That doesn't make sense. Clearly the 1 PTO bucket must not be that bad of an idea if you would choose it over having separate vacation/sick buckets, right? I have the 1 PTO bucket and I think it is perfectly fine. When I plan out my vacations and other PTO days throughout the year, I make sure I leave a couple days unused in case I get sick, and then if December comes and I haven't used those days yet, I take random Fridays or Mondays off in December since we can't roll any unused days over.
    • so did I - was the classic gym rat with the weights before taking up golf.  Lots of power not too much precision in the beginning.   Over time I've changed workout routines to still get in strength work with weights  but I've incorporated  lots of body weight work, cardio, and flexibility work.   As a result (and I'm sure golf equipment advances help)  I'm tons more accurate.  had my best drive over the weekend that measured 320 in the heat and firm conditions.   I usually carry about 280.   In all I've been working out since I was 26, I'm 56 now. So I think weights should be a part of an overall fitness plan
    • I work for the government, and our sick leave policies are more liberal than most, I would imagine. We can use sick leave for any doctor/dentist appointment. We can also use it for any illness or anything like that. This includes a kid's appointment or illness. We don't have a bright line policy on medical documentation for using sick leave, except for extended leave for childbirth or something similar. I think it's in our supervisor's discretion to request some sort of documentation, but I've never personally had that happen. I can't imagine that happening for taking sick leave of less than 3 days, though. I hate this policy. I think it's shortsighted from management. People don't want to use their days off for being sick; they want to use it for fun things. I think it leads to sick people working more often, getting other people sick, and thus making the office less productive. If the choice is between 3 weeks vacation + 1 week sick time, or just 4 weeks PTO, I would obviously take the 4 weeks. But I would also be coming into work sick more often.
