Want to see what Pam sees every day?

Yep, yep, yep.

All of that, and then some. I have been meaning to edit some of my dashcam footage and post the result to youtube but I keep getting too lazy, and I misplaced the little adapter thingie so my laptop can read a micro SD card.

Damn.

That video appears to be at more than double speed. Is that correct? If so, it makes some of those things seem much worse.

A lot to shake your head at. Bad drivers abound.

One thing that's not a bad driver but that pisses me off is at the 2:19 mark, where another truck has what appears to be a retread tire delaminate and spew huge strips of tread all over the road. I've seen way too much of that in person. It's the worst when youre driving along at speed and the car in front of you swerves to another lane and you see what looks like a tire just lying in the middle of your lane. You swerve too, and as you go by, you see it's a fucking tread just lying there. If I were dictator, I'd regulate that stuff out of existence.

Moo cow!!

I have had a tire blow out like that and leave a 'gator' (the tread) on the road but I went back and dragged it off to the side. Should be a littering fine if you don't.

The driver should be responsible for removing the tread from the road and the road repair guy should haul it way with the casing.

This one time, at band camp, for one of my extra-money-making schemes, I came up with the bright idea of getting a truck (I was gonna use a grain truck with a dump bed) and picking up those re-tread flyoffs on the interstate between two exits near home, and collect them in my spare time til I had a truck load. I even had the bright idea of using local jail inmates to do the picking up. Free labor! We even had a tire recycling operation right here in town at the time. No traveling to deliver.

So I goes to the recycler. I says to him, I says "How much do scrap rubber bring?".

Six cents per ton.:neutral:

Been there, done that.

Squashed a Grand Am up on State Street @ Bridge in NE Philly once upon a time.

Doofus thought he could ignore five turn signals and a big sign warning of wide right turns and get away with it.

He didn't.

But nobody told him the blinky things weren't party lights. :facepalm:

just before attempted traffic maneuver, thought bubble reads: "doesn't apply to me"
