    Sorry about the thread title, couldn't resist it!
    Anyway, I captured this little incident on dashcam yesterday. These types of driver really annoy me, a motorhome takes a lot of stopping. He nearly had 4 tonnes of camper in his boot.

    They were maybe a bit shaken after dodging a herd of stampeding Wildebeest on the school run, or being charged by a rhino in Tesco's car park?

    With Jaw's dashcams affixed to nearly every motorhome on the UK's roads, I think we need a whole website dedicated to the footage!!!

    Funtube anyone?

    Almost afraid to ask but what camera was used ?
    The footage I get from mine is perfectly smooth but that was pretty jerky !

    The original footage is completely smooth, for some reason when I cropped the video in movie make, it went all jerky. To answer the question, it's a Nextbase 302, sadly the GPS part of it hadn't registered, we had only just set off, so speed is not shown in the clip.

    How about something that shoots paint ? nice red splat on the back would mark the vehicle as one to be avoided !!

    Mine would be a bit 'jerky' John, if that happened to me!! If it had been my old Hymer, then it would now be wearing that truck as a bonnet mascot.....

    I like my idea better but a paint gun would be great, a ball of bright red paint with a hand grenade in it, innitt :D

    I dream of a death ray type of device that would reduce vehicles like this to their component parts! :D

    Very true and I also noticed that the pillock ended up on the wrong side of the road as he screamed into the junction, bunch of dead cyclists, mum and four kids dead? You never know do you.
