Dont paste the youtube link - then hyperlink it

Put F.e. Near Car Crash - Then Hyperlink it - forum picks up on it them
Also - there are often more then 1 type of address for youtubes
You want a shorter one - like so
When i link the web address like so

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TngglLMH9so


It fails to work

I put a title (example below Tester A) then link it works


Hope that helps MEP

No thankfully. I also anticipated this happening when i saw him in my rear view still in the other lane but catching up quickly. I think the whole 'I need to over take that one more car because I'm in a big German car' mentality is what got him.

I am for dash cams, I think they are a great idea at proving accidents etc but uploading them to youtube doesn't get you anywhere. There is a roundabout near me with each lane marked out as to show where each lane goes but people who are unaware of the road layout it can be confusing, fair enough if they are unaware they should probably hang back and take a better look at where they intend to go. Often on that roundabout I get people dithering about between two lanes as they aren't sure where they are going, or they switch lanes suddenly but as long as they provide indication its never a huge problem, although annoying I can always spot these people a mile off and tend to give them as much room as possible. A 'good' driver is supposed to be prepared for people to suddenly turn without notice etc which is why we leave good braking distances etc.

I'm not saying anyone here is a bad driver but whats the point of putting the videos on the internet? I don't understand the point?

Just an opinion though.
Driving in strange areas, especially large cities, can be very confusing at times - satnav might say straight on at a roundabout but road marking can often leave you in the wrong lane. I would either carry on in the wrong lane & rely on satnav to reroute later OR, if traffic is quite light, give as much indication as possible & hope someone lets me through.
The uploads to YT tend to show drivers who do neither, they either want to beat the queue or are simply clueless & exhibit bad driving. In the example of my two uploads - even a complete stranger to the country would surely know about staying in lane? Just because a lot of drivers cut straight over a roundabout, doesn't make it right.
As for why I, personally, upload to YT - revenge is a dish best served cold. Either that or the red mist descends & I drive like a tool to stop the idiot & get out to 'show them the errror of their ways'.
As I'm driving all day long, I could get home all stressy & my driving would get worse as the day goes on, whereas having a camera helps me get over the incident quickly.
BTW, I agree about a 'good' driver being prepared for the unexpected & leaving gaps etc - but when the tools out there leave you with nowhere to go, even the best of the best can't react in time.
