Thanks for the criticism guys. I am far from the perfect driver myself. I made the video to entertain myself and learn how to do basic video editing. My intentions are not to harass anyone, this is just the type of stuff I see the daily. I know most of my footage is G rated, again this is just what I've compiled in a few weeks or so. I hope to get more entertaining clips in the near future (have a few already)

Camera is a Kodak ZX5, I'm also using a Delkin mini gecko windshield mount. I picked up the camera at bestbuy for $99, and I think it's still that price, or you can get it at Amazon.

Again thanks for watching and the feedback. I don't actually drive that much myself.

Cool video; thanks for sharing. This is something I've wanted to do for a while, and I have the necessary stuff.

But I am wondering why you felt it necessary to block the license tags? And what editing software had that feature?

I've been to various place and I've come to the conclusion that this country is full of bad drivers. Most of it is the lack of discipline and impatience of people. Some do fall on poor road design such as the same intersection you keep going through. For someone not familiar of that area, it can be confusing. The signs doesn't tell you what lane you're suppose to be in or both lanes are used for turning. A 25 mph speed limit can't compensate for a poorly designed interchange.

I don't blame the action of the Infiniti. The driver likely had no idea that you had to get into the left turning lane to keep straight.

The video looked sped up. I half expected to hear Yakity Sax (the Benny Hill music for those not in the know).

I blocked them out of courtesy and because I wanted to learn how to do it. But I've learned if you're making a profit off the video (which I am not) they may have a longshot case.

I used Sony Vegas 11 for software. Blocking the plates takes up the most time during editing.
