As some of you may might remember, Hui-chen and I bought a new car recently. We’ll be doing a story on that soon enough but one thing the new car came with is a dashcam. While driving, it silently records everything that happens in front of us. As sort of an experiment I thought I would highlight one of the idiotic things that happen to me while daily driving. If the response is good, this will become a regular feature as there certainly is enough material for a completely new blog on this topic alone! So, it is with great pleasure that we bring you this first dashcam video:The red car cruises into the left lane just prior to reaching the intersection (0:08), where it proceeds to take a right turn and encroach right into my lane forcing me to slow and wait (0:14) (and honk my horn). At that intersection, there are double right-turn lanes and most of the drivers do not do what this guy did. The wide-angle lens takes away some of the drama but nevertheless I was not able to continue in my own lane without hitting this driver.
Be sure and let us know what you think of this new feature in the comments section.
