    This is not a made up joke but something i saw.
    Some time ago i thought about getting a dash cam, i never got round to it yet but the other day i saw something that made me wish i had as i am sure i could have made good money by putting the recorded video on you tube.
    We were heading south of Bacong on the beautiful 4 lane highway when in the distance we saw a truck with so much smoke coming from it that never mind if it was diesel or petrol it looked like it was burning coal.
    The funny bit was that the driver was hogging the middle of the road as is the norm here and a motorcycle driver close behind him was engulfed by the smoke, when we went to overtake them we could see the motorbike driver was driving with one hand and had the other over his nose and mouth, and the best bit, his facemask was under his chin :clown:
    He could have,
    1. Put the mask on correctly
    2. Moved over to the empty right hand lane
    3. Overtook the slow moving truck
    He did none of these and just sucked it up :laugh:

    Dash cams are cheap and very easy to install. There is no excuse for you not getting this on video. Shame on you.

    I have purchased a Dash Cam a couple of weeks ago, having had a close call with a road rage nutter!
    Weekend trip to Wales which is on our doorstep. just an hours drive away was travelling along the A55 express way where three lanes converge into two.
    Being in the middle lane I was safe to stay in, when a guy pulled across me who was quickly and more dangerously followed by another guy.
    The second car was near to a collision that I flashed my headlights at him. (Big mistake )
    About a mile further on he moved over to the nearside lane. I attempted to pass him only for him to shoot out in front of me at about 55 mph and slammed on his brakes!! How I didn't crash into the back of him God only knows, had there been cars behind me I'm sure there would of been a multi-car pile up.
    Needless to say he sped away, leaving me to think, you never know what type of people are behind the wheel of cars these days.
    "Caught on Camera" videos we all tend to watch, never prepare us for what we might experience while driving.
    Yes we might find somethings funny, but there are some nasty people out there.......stay safe, buy a dash-cam ( $30 ) it could save you a lot of trouble.
