do you record licens plates at all, that road rage with the Mercedes van was a little to close
Well, as you can see his plate is visible, but I do not call the cops for that one. I believe it will be hard to prove who was behind the wheel afterwards. If something happens, like an accident or incident I would call the cops.

Next video up! Part 31!
This episode I get frustrated about how the he** you can mod your car with body kit so it gets useless on public roads! Police don't stop illigal drivers just in front of them. And tailgaters, speeders, jaywalkers, distracted drivers and a very nice looking Volvo at the end.

Part 33 is up.. A lot of freeway driving this week.. Been half across the country, driven about 1300km, mostly highway. I am surprised of how irregular people drive when it comes to speed! Some cars I can pass 3-4 times in the hour!

I had kind of a close call last week and put up a clip of it. Mostly, if not all, my fault. And legally I would have had to take the blame if anything happened... still I believe it´s stupid to overtake a car when you see another car on a road to the left up ahead that is signaling to turn right.
Also a minor, but deadly accident in the video... Viewer Discretion is not advices.

Part 35 is up!
In this one we grieve the loss of a lot of ice cream, almost getting ramed by a bus, going invisible during a Volvo´s overtake and then some guest clips from Norway with a really cheap joke at the end.

And now a new part!
One of the incidents was the "biggest" in my own mind but wasn't that good on video.. most because almost everything happened beside the car. A taxi driver that road raged against me for brake checking him when he was tailgating bad.
He then tried to made me stop on the highway to fight(?) by braking down to low speed in front of me. I feel like I would need a camera facing sideway now as well!

PRR Tips to help you become a Driving Pro.
1) Don't wobble in a lane or hug a line, keep centered and steady. Being a predictable driver will save you from a collision.
2) Don't accelerate or decelerate quickly, smooth transitions help everyone including passengers.
3) Stay back from pedestrian crosswalks. It helps other motorists see the pedestrians, i.e. stop at that stop line.
4) Check around the pillars of your vehicle when turning. You might think it's clear only to be surprised by a pedestrian 'hidiing' behind your pillar.
5) When turning a corner, don't cut the on-coming lane. Imagine a quarter circle and make that your path. Being a pro means you don't need to correct your position after the turn to center yourself in the lane.
6) Always use your turn signal whenever changing out of your lane, and give that signal at least a second or two to alert others before actually turning. Too often people think that the signal isn't necessary. Those people should stop thinking what others need from them. Others, whether peds, bicyclists or other vehicles need to see what you are about to do to save themselves from a collision... so use that signal.
Pedestrian and Bicycle Pro Tips:
1) Walking or riding? Well look both ways even if you have a light. Do you really trust your life to a stranger and whatever condition or distraction they are dealing with? Don't assume they see the light or stop sign. After all, they have an entire vehicle to protect them, you don't.
2) Don't step off a curb without looking. Busses and electric vehicles (bicycles too) do not warn people of their approach with sound as there is very little sound generated by their movement or engines.
3) Practice good habits so that if you're ever distracted you'll more likely employ the good habit at the critical time you need it, to save your life.
4) It's called a crosswalk because you should always walk. If you're riding and want to use a crosswalk, dismount and walk. Walking gives drivers the chance to see you and stop if necessary. Darting across eliminates this important buffer.
5) Setting good examples will show children how to behave near a road, and in effect you will be saving their lives... so be a hero and save lives through your example!
