    AUDI (also check out the black smoke!)




    Car pulls out, I didn't have to slam the brakes but couldn't continue as there wasn't a big enough gap. Spot the token indicator!

    WTF was that Audi driver doing? Apart from trying to cause a smokescreen.

    I can't even begin to comprehend what was going through the Audi driver's mind. What were they driving to achieve?

    Enjoying your continual dashcam videos :Thumbup:

    It's funny when watching back footage. The second one seemed much worse in reality but when reviewing the footage it doesn't look all that bad but then I guess you are looking out for the incident whereas at the time what with it being dark and raining with lights reflecting all over the place you are looking everywhere and not just 100% dead ahead!

    Here's another one from today. It's getting worse! lol

    Was kinda expecting it because of the other car crossing so I rolled up to him to emphasis the stupid move he'd just pulled.

    The camera I've got is good, although it's got an annoying habit of occasionally not automatically recording and comes up with a "STORAGE I/O" error. The guy sent me a new one no problem but this one does it also. It's not a big deal, you just press the button to record and it will start but you have to watch out for it. Happens within the first 20 secs so easy to look for. He said he's got fifty units tested and non of them do it so it could be the Sandisk card I'm using as he was using Samsung ones and a lower class level.

    Anyway, more importantly, if hardwiring avoid the non-branded one which looks like the Power Magic Pro. The shop sent me an unbranded one free of charge as it was his first time getting one in so I said I'd test it for him. It works fine except sometimes it powers off with the ignition and you just know that it will power off one day when I really need the footage! lol

    I've bought a Power Magic Pro and have yet to install it but will let you know how I get on. For £89 the camera is pretty good though and the Power Magic Pro can be had for about £30 odd on Amazon.

    What a tool, I hope you gave some abuse.

    I'm sure having the camera fitted attracts the idiots, either that or I just remember more.

    I usually do stop at these junctions regardless of whose right of way due to people just driving right through. I'd rather not have a smashed car just for the sake of being right lol In this case he had stopped, so I figured he had seen me. Damn that bumper was scary! lol

    Ahhhhh good old AUDI. We meet again!

    Nothing spectacular or anything, but more a case of pointing out why they get on my nerves. The road behind me is completely clear, so I've no idea why he did what he did and cause me to brake - only to get stuck behind road works lol But then look how he drives with the car in front and of course the obligatory lack of indicator later on.

    Perhaps I shouldn't have slowed down and done my own NCAP on him instead :Devil:

    braking check seems to the norm for Asian taxi driver around our neck of the wood . if a Taxi is on a give way to junction I move my car towards them to force them to reconsider ..call that defensive driving.

    use em these German curd will soon figure out it works both ways.
