    I thought that at first but to be fair to the driver with the dashcam, he was in lane 2 and going at a fair lick and he would have been in shock. I should think the ones that stopped would be several cars behind.

    No brake lights at all, that seems a bit strange

    The date stamp says January but all the trees are in full leaf.
    I bet that’s an old video rehashed. I think I’ve even seen it on TV cop chase program.

    Definitely brake lights visible when I view it. Are you using a phone maybe?

    Whatever the date, other road users were fortunate not to have been killed or injured by the driver.
    I am not sure I would have stopped if I had been the driver with the dashcam, other than to make sure the finger of blame did not point my way.

    According to another report the footage was from the helmet cam of a motorcyclist and he did stop to assist.

    Yep you're right, was on PC but didn't see any colour change but they were already on
     
  12. I know that roundabout, you turn off right to Attleborough there. It's fairly recent as it's not been dualled for that many years.

    Maybe it wasn't there the last time the van driver went that way :laugh:

    Hmm, I did similar in a Nissan 200sx
    I got a Big fine and nearly 2 years ban.

    I was a bit naughty at the time.

    I meant the van driver deserved better injuries for his tw@tish driving. It was obvious from the wind noise that the cameraperson was on a motorbike and was nearly wiped out by the undertaking van. If I'd been the biker I'd have only stopped to ensure the driver was bleeding profusely before carrying on, even if that meant doing it myself!
