Ever wonder what people are saying about you behind your back? Of course you have; you’re human. One handy way to find out is to take a car in for a trade-in appraisal, and leave your dashcam inside! Then you might be as lucky as this guy who brought his BMW to be appraised for a trade-in on a new Ford Focus RS. …
This video isn’t exactly exciting, but it has a certain weird draw to it. I don’t think either participant comes off very well, and there’s a certain uncomfortable tension throughout. So why do I keep watching it?
The Audi R8 is good and nice, but it is a supercar. And sometimes supercars attract people who don’t know how to drive supercars (or really at all), and sometimes they cause accidents and flee the scene. Sometimes they’re such an idiot jamoke, they get caught on a dashcam driving like an idiot jamoke.
First, of course this was shot in Russia, the world’s leading exporter of Shit Like This. The car is an Ultima GTR, an absurdly fast low-volume British supercar that may be the quickest supercar in the world. It’s also a pretty effective magnifier of idiocy, as you can see here. This really didn’t have to happen.
What the hell did I just watch? Something that looked a hell of a lot like a human was being dragged along by a bus, then got run over by a van, and then just got up like it was nothing? That what I saw. That’s a Terminator, right? Of course it is. A Terminator. In Ukraine. Holy shit.
A police constable in Knowsley, England was responding to a multi-car crash when this speeding Mercedes lost control and plowed into a rescue vehicle. Looks like the police Land Rover saved this officer’s life by inches.
In another episode of truck versus train: not only does the train win again, it accidentally hauls the big rig a quarter mile down the tracks before grinding to a stop.
It’s not clear what happened before this video begins that made the driver of this Infiniti so brain-cloudingly angry, but his subsequent plan of coming to a dead stop in the middle of a freeway to punch the driver behind him put him firmly in the wrong no matter what. Even better/worse, the freeway-stopper had three…
Watching this garbage truck explode in a New Jersey neighborhood, it’s hard not to be reminded of a cheesy action movie. Well, a cheesy action movie shot vertically, in order to incite comment-section riots. It’s no movie, though, it’s what happens when a compressed natural gas tank explodes.
Hey kids! Here’s a hot driving tip: if you can’t see shit, slow down! Now have your gramma cross-stitch that into a pillow and then shove that in a time machine and send it to Slovenia yesterday, where dense fog caused this awful 70 car pileup.
A little scooter isn’t exactly a vehicle that conveys a lot of status. That’s why you have to dress it up a little with something that really shows your position, like, say some big chromed mirrors. If you really want to do it right, like this guy, you could get a specially-trained dog-valet to ride with you, holding…
What’s remarkable about this video of a shirtless guy riding on a car hood in a Michigan winter and then falling off when that car hits a cop car is not the events that happen, it’s the look the driver gives the cop.
Idiot or crazy? It’s so hard to decide. When you see a person take their lighter out at a gas station, and deliberately hold it right up to the pump, and then act surprised at the ensuing fireball, the question of crazy or idiot is sublimely difficult. Maybe both?
Imagine minding your own business, chilling and laying down in the backseat of a car, feet effortlessly suspended out of the window, then all of a sudden, bam! Some fearless motorcycle rider comes up, grabs your feet, and scares the shit out of you. This is gold.
Bright glowing things falling from the sky are not exactly things I hope to or expect to see while traveling down a highway. But apparently, it happens.
Yesterday morning, a driver in Fontana captured an insane accident on his dashcam as an out of control truck struck another car, sending the car into a spin and the truck flying over an embankment, landing in a car dealership lot. The driver who got the video thinks it may be a road rage-related incident. Yikes.
We’re getting a little desensitized to Russian dash cam footage at this point, but holy crap. Charging somebody’s car with an axe wasn’t enough for this guy, he had to pull out his pistol and start blasting while he’s parked at a damn traffic light.
We see a lot of low flying videos out of Russia and Ukraine, but this one is of especially high quality and has a great soundtrack, if you are in Snoop Dogg/Doors mashups that is. (And who isn’t?)
You know that funny feeling you get when a big rig truck tips over in front of you and comes sliding, on its side, headlong at your car, only to just barely stop after tapping your front bumper? That’s sort of the feeling you’ll get watching this Polish dashcam video.
I love reading the particularly disgruntled letters that come in to the Porsche Club of America’s Panorama magazine. One such fellow complained that he was done with PCA, as he felt as if Porsche was moving away from its storied racing heritage with models like the Cayenne. You sure about that, bud?
