Heading out of town in rush-hour traffic, a Prius driver cuts me off, then when I honk at him, brake-checks me to the point where I nearly ran him down. A few miles later, an elderly woman in an Escalade just decides to merge into the space I am occupying.

This morning I ordered a windshield mount for my Gopro. The next time this happens, and I am unable to stop, I will at least have video evidence.

Sheesh, people. You will get there, just be patient.

Apparently, you've never driven in rush hour traffic before. If you're not in a hurry, sit back and watch it all happen. The GoPro is a good idea though. Tons of drivers in Europe have dash cams....because they don't know how to drive.


Always looking for the perfect site.

Sounds like a typical commute in rush hour traffic.

I started using a camera after a PU cut in front of me so close I could not see the back of the truck. This was after I saw him weaving in/out of traffic and when besides me I blew the horn as there was not enough space for him to cut in front of me. Not sure how he made it as there was only inches. Has nothing to do with knowing how to drive in rush hour traffic but I guess I'd left too large a gap behind the traffic in my lane.

Stay off your horn and enjoy the moment. Life is short.

There is a name for those hellholes. They are called cities.

All good advice, and yes, I don't drive in rush hour traffic much, as I work from home and hardly drive at all. That's not to say I don't know how to drive, I have hundreds of thousands of highway miles, accident-free. You cut me off, yes, I'm gonna use my horn, that is what it is for. When I hit the road long-term, I'm gonna plan my urban travels for the off-rush times.

I'd sure like to know how you enjoy moments when your life flashes before your eyes because you think you are gonna die. I don't find it enjoyable. People are just A-holes when they get behind the wheel.

It's all part of the "adventure."
Just remember, they are probably going to work, you are going camping.
