With the number of bad drivers on today’s roads, it’s never a bad idea to have a dashcam rolling when commuting to and from work or going out to the store. Even if you get into some sort of accident or mishap that isn’t your fault, the dashcam will always ensure that it isn’t just your word against someone else if the police get involved. Just take this recent incident involving a Holden Cruze, for example, which was captured on a dashcam by a motorist in Victoria, Australia.
The video begins with the cammer’s vehicle, seemingly a silver SUV or small pickup truck of some sort, traveling on the far left side of a one-way street with three lanes. As the cammer approaches a first-generation Voodoo Blue Holden Cruze traveling in the middle lane, the driver of the affordable compact car puts their left turn signal on and prepares to make a lane change.
The cammer continues traveling in the same lane, seemingly unaware the Cruze driver has turned their left-hand signal on, as the Cruze begins to drift into the left-hand lane and sideswipes the cammer’s vehicle. The two cars then pull off to the side of the road to assess the damage when the driver of the Cruze gets out from the driver’s seat, seemingly irate, and storms to the other side of the vehicle. He then appears to yell obscenities at the cammer before attempting to get back into his vehicle.
At this point, the victim of the Cruze’s careless driving takes a photograph of the vehicle’s license plate to ensure the driver can’t escape. The Cruze driver then charges at the victim, raising his fist at her and seemingly preparing to assault her in some fashion. As the altercation continues off-camera, sirens can be heard in the distance. The police then arrive on the scene shortly after to de-escalate the situation and (hopefully) teach the Holden driver the importance of making safe lane changes and treating his fellow motorists with courtesy and respect.
