Think Twice Before Passing The Police
This occurred on I-295 N in West Deptford/Westville area around mile post
24. The New Jersey State Trooper was going 60 mph. The posted speed limit
at the time was 50 mph due to it being a work zone even though the work was
finished the signs were still posted.
Near Miss, Tailgating and Road Rage
Several people have mentioned that I'm normally calm when riding. Here is a
video where I lost my cool with a Mercedes driver. Unfortunately, as always
with wide-angled lenses, the video doesn't give the true impression of how
close we were. If I hadn't swerved I think she would have clipped Mrs
CalmBiker, who was my pillion at the time. Being responsible for the safety
of Mrs CalmBiker probably added to my anger with the car driver.
I've looked through the footage many times to analyse what happened and
what I could (should) have done to avoid it. I've added my thoughts to the
video as captions. Ultimately, the safest thing would have been to not
engage her at all, slowed down and let her go. However, this is easy to say
after the event. when it happened the red mist descended.
There are some lessons to be learned from the video I think, so it's worth
Road Rage on I10 Louisiana
The chase in this video took place last Friday night (Dec 3rd, 2010) on our
way to New Orleans. My family and I where in the so called slow-lane (IE.
the right lane), and the vehicles involved in the road rage where in the
fast (left) lane. Anybody who has traveled between Lafayette, LA and New
Orleans, LA by vehicle coming from Houston, TX will have to cross what I
like to call the bridge from HELL. It is 28 miles long, has only 2 exits
and it is 2 lanes in both directions with little or no shoulders to pull
over on ... also unless you are a very good swimmer or can walk on water,
don't have an accident and land in the water, you will be dinner for sure
for the alligators that reside below the bridge (or other critters.
Anyway, moving on ... The 2 vehicles in the video in the left lane (1
pickup and 1 mini cooper) decided they wanted to play road rage and not
care who would die. And the truck in the right lane was also at fault since
he would not let the mini move over. So you see several times how the truck
is riding the mini's bumper close to 1 inch away. There where also several
times that the pickup tried going around to the left of the mini, (FYI
there was less than 3 feet of clearance and he would've definitely wrecked)
but thankfully thought it would've been a real bad idea. In the end the
truck got around, but they still continued there rage for probably another
10 to 15 miles. My wife did call the police and they intercepted them
several miles up the road. The cool thing was that I had shot this video
and my wife shot another video on her phone and when we saw the police and
the vehicles, both officers looked at both footages shot and used it to
actually issue extremely reckless driving tickets to both drivers involved.
Also a 2nd ticket was issued to the truck tailing the cooper because when
he finally got around the cooper, he threw something at the cooper which I
also captured on video. Check it out and see what we saw and agree that all
it would've taken was for the cooper to hit it's breaks and that bridge
would've easily been shutdown for a period of time with injuries and a
pretty good chance of a casualty or two. Enjoy.
Another tailgater taken care of
In this clip, we see yet another tailgater, this guy can hardly see over
the steering wheel. He comes right up to my car, I tapped on the brakes
twice, but he doesn't back off. Then I step on the brakes and that made
him back up. There were cars on the left and in front of me, so I could
not move over.
Road Rage, Tailgater Doesn't Like The Camera
This occurred in Fairfax County Virginia. A federal security gaurd was
tailgating and when the opportunity came there was an assault. As always
there is two sides to every story and I'm sure there is, but assault is
Fed Ex--two trailers, no brain.
Being tailgated by a car, another truck tailgating the car tailgating the
Fed Ex rig, that truck being tailgated. Imagine the carnage if the vehicle
in front stops or loses control....is it worth it?
Telling off a tailgater
Remember people, non-tailgaters make better lovers.
Using the external mic this time, audio is kinda fail.
Truck tries to hit me
some lunatic on a cell phone tries to hit me on purpose! i know the camera
doesn't show it, but you should have seen the evil glare he gave me!
