Almost a crash in Ellesmere Port, caught on dashcam

Ever since someone reversed into me in a car-park and claimed I went into him I’ve used a dashcam in my car. Since then I’ve never had an accident, or cause to use the footage for insurance purposes – but I’ve had the odd near miss.

Last weekend was another near miss on the roundabout by Sainsbury’s and Cheshire Oaks, in Ellesmere Port. Some people just don’t know how to use a roundabout.


Video of a car almost crashing into me

Last week, on my way to work, I almost had a crash. This, of course, is nothing new. However this time I managed to capture the close shave on video, thanks to my new dash cam, a digital recorder that is attached to the windscreen of my car.

Over the years one of these would have come in very handy, especially when some idiot reversed into me and then lied about it. Sadly I have only just got the camera, but it’s already starting to pay off. This particular incident happened when some moron decided to swerve across the road in front of me, rather than wait for me to pass. As you can see from the video, and the slow-mo, it was very, very close.

I’ll be recording all of my car journies from now on, so expect a few more of these in due time.
