Again, why I have dash cams.

Me, too. It has already served me well on one occasion. The camera turns on with the ignition. Records every mile.

Keep in mind, as it did in the video, it also recorded his speed.

While "brake check" and "following too close" can be debated successfully from either perspective depending upon a specific situation it is a something I would prefer to avoid. In my experience driving slightly below the speed limit has been very successful as traffic is generally pulling away.


One should use common sense on two lane roads and allow traffic to pass whenever possible.

Every state has something to the effect; "The driver must be in control of the vehicle at all times."

I think the OP would get burned in a suit. Speeding, mind not on driving as wipers running for no reason, riding in left lane. He would have been drug/booze tested and who knows!!!!!
Lucky no one hurt.

Booze and drugs are just hearsay and cannot be introduced as evidence.
I have not begun the research on state laws and the use of wipers.
This is getting interesting.

OP, I have to ask. Why are you riding in the left lane? It is for Passing. In a lot of the states you would have gotten pulled over and received a ticket. Not just because you were just riding in the left lane but because the left lane in some states is forbidden for trucks, trailers and large vehicles (RV's).
Besides you were speeding, 67 in a 65.
Now I am curious what type of recording device you were using? Did you have to edit all of the info or did it actually record the info in the bottom left and right corners?

Almost 70 at this point. Even comments about the 60mph speed limit sign.




A lot of dash cams on the market have a built in time,speed and coordinates.

10 pages and still no verdict.
Attorney's getting paid by the hour?
Or is it a lack of cases coming before the court?
What we know:
He was speeding at times.
Wipers were on, possibly needlessly.
Driving in left lane, should have been in middle lane.
Also know he did A masterful job of driving and if he had been in the middle lane the situation would have been much worse.

Only thing for sure about this post is I bet the OP regrets ever posting as he never thought it would be a critique of all the things he did wrong.

Don't forget about the lousy reaction time sees the junk fly out(while traveling almost 10mph over the limit)and comments about it then a few seconds later on the brakes. To me if he had been going 60 and reacted as soon as he saw the junk fly out there would not be a brown mark on his drivers seat.
Not sure about masterful I would side with luck.

I wonder after all of the views and comments how many will find themselves speeding in the left lane having forgotten the video?
