Looks like she got fired.

The last comment on that page there cracked me up. Clearly only Russians are allowed or need dash cams.

I'm glad this bad bus driver was dealt with but I am also curious to know why the other driver had a dashboard cam in their car. This isn't Russia!

This was a good one. Leaving Crowfoot, a guy in a Ford Escape cuts across three lanes and almost hits my front end. I lay on the horn but he doesn't even slow down, swerve, nothing. I have Supertones, I'm sure he heard them. I pull up beside them and what do I see? The stereotypical frat boy oucheday. Slicked back hair, large sunglasses, and a Starbucks coffee in his hand.

This guy passed me on Stoney at probably 150Km/h, only to turn off at the same exit as me and stop at the lights in front of me. He then proceeded to hammer the gas, slam on the brakes as someone changed lanes in front of him, then go around and speed away into the sunset. There's just something about VW drivers  :-X

Last night, heading home from work, I encountered some interesting driving from a guy in GMC Sierrra. Was heading South on Clover Bar out of Sherwood park and just where it turns into RR 231 at the school just past Wye Road. I was still in the 60km/h section but accelerating... apparently not quick enough though because this guy then pulls out into the oncoming lane to pass me. Further down the road he tries to pass another truck the same way and nearly clips an oncoming car.

Guy in a clapped out GMC towing an equally clapped out RV passed me in the pouring rain on the QEII yesterday. I was doing 7 over the limit in Pumpkin, he was doing much more than that and I remembered thinking "what a uckfaying tool, speeding in the rain in that wreck, and towing as well". Passed him later on Hwy16 heading East from Edmonton, parked on the side of the road with a wheel missing off the RV. At least there were no other vehicles involved.

Too low to be a Tiguan, either a GTI or an R. I'm too lazy to Google up an image of the rear valance to figure out the difference.

This happened last week, driving home from work on Highway 8 going east, in the turn lane to turn to 101st, there is a nice long of cars going west on highway 8 so i had to wait.  Some one in a 6 series BMW goes just past the turn does a U turn in the middle of the highway then turns right onto 101st to avoid the line up to turn left.

I am waiting to turn and the BMW does his u turn where the white car is in the distance.

This was good. BMW 760 driver on northbound Deerfoot speeds up to block me as I'm coming up on slow moving traffic (semi truck and guy speed matching the truck). He passes them and I pass him while doing the same. Not 20 seconds later, he does a ricer flyby. He being a 60 year old man. He promptly slows down and tries to cut me off as I'm going on to Country Hills.

In my experience, it seems to be VW drivers more than any other.  Maybe because they figure their only chance at showing off their doucheness is by targetting econoboxes.   :sarcasm:
Because... hoodscoop.  :P

Yesterday evening was like a full moon.

Had a GC8 WRX weaving between lanes, while stopping, to catch up to me, which then sparked life into the Sentra driver. Light goes green, Sentra driver chirps his tires, he's off the line so fast, GC8 takes the inside lane, but goes wide, almost hitting me. Sentra ends up behind me somehow, and then tailgates me, almost rear ending me. While sitting at that light, I see a white GC8 (driving normally), but the truck on the outside turn lane decides to try and drift around the white GC8.

Blue GC8 takes off, and is never heard from again, except when he blows by my house, constantly shifting, to let everyone know how awesome his BOV sounds.

Oh and when I walked the dog this morning, the Blue GC8 grew a white spoiler and trunk overnight.
If the sea was vodka, and I was a duck.
I would swim to the bottom, and drink my way up.
But the sea isn't vodka, and I'm not a duck.
So give me the vodka, and stfu.
If you're having forum problems, I feel bad for you son, I got 99 problems but your post ain't one.

People were going full retard today. A woman decided that it was my fault that I had to slam on my brakes while going through a 4-way intersection because she decided to put on her turn signal and turn left at the last minute. Apparently when it's your turn, nobody else can go even if it would speed up traffic flow. Closer to home, a youngish woman in a white Mazda3 thought that 80 in a 50 kph residential zone was appropriate and almost ran into me when I changed lanes.

it was in arbor lake on a fairly long, straight road
I'm just guessing 150, as i was on foot and saw the car coming from probably the speed limit and then he just punched it and it took off so god damn fast
