What's going on with your life?

Recommended Posts

So... I'm mighty glad I got a dash cam after @Beck's incident as it came in handy last night :|

*video*

Damn, what the hell was the other driver doing??

Was there any damage at all? Have you spoke to your insurance?

It clearly wasn't your fault but I'd always be careful about posting these videos online until the claim process is done?

Glad you're ok man!

It's is probably because of your shitty music taste, sorry bro :/

Don't watch my latest dash cam video then :P It's loud, I was driving home from a long day at work and wanted to liven my drive up! But it features utter arseholes and peanut butter jelly.

I had a video like that, was making a long drive deep into suffolk, and they've got this new road there. I was travelling a good 70mph and was looking to pull out to overtake and these 3 fuck heads shot past doing easily 100mph bumper to bumper. Sadly it's been overwritten now, otherwise I would've reported them.

RE my crash: Other driver said he didn't see us, sadly not while we were recording (phone screen locked and app stopped, great job cyanogenmod!) and I've sorted everything out with insurance. Got my tin bucket on wheels courtesy car this morning. The liability team for my insurance requested the video be put on youtube for ease of access (it's unlisted), and have since emailed me back telling me there's a problem with their computers and they can't access youtube for the video, or imgur for the damage (imgur damage album). Superficially it looks ok, but the wheel took the brunt of that and was enough to shift us on the road, so fingers crossed the axle or something similarly important is in tact.

I really don't want this to be a write off, I won't find a similar focus with the spec on this one for the price i did before :|

I don't know if anything would have come from reporting them anyway. It sucks because you'd have hard evidence with the number plates but I bet the police would say there's insufficient evidence or some crap. I see so much crap on the roads I'd love a way to submit video proof of people being retards behind the wheel to the police.

He's clearly in the wrong so without the dash cam footage you probably would have been fine but the footage does make everything a lot easier for your insurer and I bet does help speed the process up since the two sides don't need to fight over who's in the wrong.

Hopefully the damage is just visual and it hasn't bent the axle or something. Hard to say without getting it up on a ramp and looking underneath. 

Did the insurer not sort you out with a like for like car? Mine got me a 6 month old Vauxhall Insignia 2.0 litre automatic. Was like a bloody luxury tank! Then again it was a rental car rather than a courtesy car.

Best of luck Jacko!

No luxury tank for me! I've got a piddly little 2015 1.0l petrol Peugeot 208 (3.2k miles on the clock) that I am far too large for. I could literally bitch about it for hours after driving it for 40 minutes this morning. It is a genuinely, horrible car.

Thanks :)
