South Florida Driving 101 Dash Cam Compilation 7

South Florida Driving 101 Dash Cam Compilation 7.  7 is on YouTube and it’s almost ten minutes long.  When I started this project I had no idea how much material would be captured by the camera.  It’s been a big surprise.  Takes up a lot of time but it is fun.  Makes me get better at editing and picking out the bad driving.

The addition of the rear and side camera on the car I’m using it’s also getting good material.  Didn’t think how useful it could be until this trip.  “Scooter” and “Road Warrior” are good examples.  Both captured the approach and passing which to my eyes adds so much more to the story when able to view all the footage.

“Scooter” is kind of funny to me because I’m always fascinated by how those guys keep getting away with that kind of driving without getting killed.  I’ve driven motocross and street bikes and would never drive like that.  Oddly my favorite part of that footage is the reflection of the bike passing by on the black car next to my car.  It’s why I left it in, could have cut out for time but I liked it.

The “Road Warrior” I really don’t get.  Thanks to the rear camera we can follow the progression of the truck, what it did and how long.  I kept all the footage in real-time.  Keep in mind I always use my signals.  Always.  They are so important I have a kit to repair them on the spot.  Got really dangerous there as he passed me from the right lane.  Huh?  What a spectacular accident that would have been.

This video is from a round trip to Miami back to Fort Lauderdale.  There is a few extras I thought might be worth putting in.  Like, the legal way to change lanes with gold star awards.  The Miami skyline footage is about a minute long and features a short section of I-95 North just where U.S. 1 dumps the traffic onto the interstate.  If you’re into Britto there is a piece of art on a building visible from I-95 north or south bound.  Hope you enjoy. -13
