LEAF Dashcam

Had I been going a little faster, I would have been t-boned. Speed limit for both roads is 55MPH.

Pretty scary. Neat dash cam by the way,

I wonder if the other driver actually tried to stop but was not able to and slid through the intersection.

What are you using for a dash cam and how did you mount it?

BlackVue DR400G-HD (there are newer models out now). I used to have it mounted in my gas car but moved it to my LEAF. It sits behind the rear view mirror and is stuck to the windshield with some kind of thick 3M tape. It has G-sensors and a built-in GPS that gathers speed and location information. Cool gizmo for anyone who drives a lot.




Another guy running a stop sign, but a little closer this time. He was ok, just panicked a little and dropped his bike.

that last video does not look like a Leaf hood. Is that from a Cop car? Looks like a push bumper.

Crown Victoria Police Interceptor. Went from a gas guzzling V8 to a pure electric car. :)

This happened just last week. McDrunk.



By the time I figured out he was a drunk driver trying to flee the scene of an accident, it was too late to intervene (I likely wouldn't have even if I knew what was going on).

It's kind of funny, the response time of the private (non-government) non-profit ambulance was faster than the sheriff, even though there's a sheriff outpost less than a mile away and the ambulance service is based out of Ann Arbor several miles away.
