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.

    • Hi All! I started really making an effort to improve my game this summer. Took a couple of lessons and really started to make good contact with the irons and stop pulling the ball. Getting confident there. Now, I'm having a crazy issue with the driver.  The last time I was hitting my driver straight-ish, I had the ball way farther back in my stance than seemed natural for a driver, basically in the middle of my stance. The ball would be low but for the most part straight. I moved the ball forward in my stance, and all hell has broken loose. Now every shot with the driver is a hard, low-arcing hook that starts way left and stays way left. My swing with the driver doesn't feel comfortable at all. I'm going to take another lesson and ask about it, but I was wondering if any of you had had a similar experience. Any advice would be appreciated.
    • Actually he did. They have two of the booths with the screens that show your ball flight and all the numbers they use. He had some other electronic device he was using behind me. This place is a really nice golf course with 27 holes, plus a really nice practice facility. They are supposed to be the best in Wisconsin for club fitting. It took me all day to get there, get this done and drive back. I sure do hope it works out!
    • At least the guy in the store didn't tell you that you were standing too close to the ball after you hit it.  Old joke.
    • I have played Ping GI (GMax) for the past three years. I also start my irons at 6i. I made sure they were a good fit at the time I bought them.  Mine are Ping, red, senior shaft.  I, too, had some difficult getting used to those shafts. I had used steel shafts for decades. It took a while of practicing my 6i,7i and 9i, one club at a time  My coach tore down my swing with these clubs to the basics to get to the level of confidence I have now. We videoed everything, including grip for each club.  We discussed the target range and loft of each clubs.  While you are tending, I think, to see these clubs as a "set", I was told to treat these as individual clubs only.   I have also used tape and spray to mark just about every practice shot I took.  And for a while I need every shot to look for patterns (I tend to hit more towards the toe.) After I examined the markings, the pattern of mis-hits was clear and that gave my coach a clear view of what needed correction. As well, we took it down to position of the face of the club at every point of the swing. We slowed down the swing until I felt comfortable with it. Finally, everything was combined into the swing I now use. Finally, we looked at any changes I might make for each of the clubs.  It took about a month of this kind of steady practice.  Now I am happy with the shots around 90% of the time. Like you, I do choke up a bit on these clubs more than my 3 hybrids.  As many have said, there could be many reasons these are not working for you. I suggest making a video and posting it on line here at TST.  
    • I know I still have a long, long way to go but this is my before swing:   Cutting way across the ball, weak slices, shanks, over the top, out to in - you name it horrible, horrible. Then after one evolvr lesson 6 days later:    Still not pretty at all, but my instructor has got my grip stronger (with my right hand at least, still working on my left hand) and I've got a sensation of trying to leave the club face more closed throughout the swing and bowing the lead wrist more, even though I'm not in reality. Ive had dramatic improvements in ball flight. Hitting a mix of straight shots, draws and occasional hooks now, and all but eliminated slicing, Gained a lot of distance too. It's turned things around for me to be honest. Now I am working on strengthening the grip with the left hand, turning out my left foot and angling my neck to match my shoulders, as per my instructors advice. Any further suggestions welcomed. Im pretty sure Im flipping the club a lot and adding loft.
