So in May I was in two car accidents.
First one a dude in a BMW texting and driving blew a stop light and T-boned my '03 Malibu. If my girlfriend hadn't swerved at the last second the impact would have been directly into her door. Luckily the corner of his car caught the post in the frame square: my car bent in half and the window exploded in our faces, but we were not badly injured.
Ten days later a woman behind me was texting. I watched her the entire way into the back of my '79 El Camino. She had maybe $5500 in damage. She crushed her bumper, her hood, knocked out the alignment of her front end, and I have no idea how her airbags didn't deploy. I had no damage (fibreglass and plastic meet chrome and steel), so I angrily advised she stop texting and driving and pay attention. I did a pretty sweet burn out as I left her mostly crippled in the middle of the road.
So I bought a dashcam. It's super sweet. It records from two lens, one of which swivels any direction I like. My new plan is to record drivers texting, post the videos to twitter, and tag the police. I'm not sure what it will accomplish, but I need an outlet for my barely containable rage whenever someone is texting and driving near me. I've nearly gotten into some road-ragey fights with people a bit bigger than me.
Do you have a dashcam? Get one! Later I'll post some sweet videos.
