It was only a few years ago when very few people on the road had a dashcam in their car. But nowadays, you’d be pushed to identify a chain of cars without at least one recording what’s going down on the road.
We can’t pretend that a lot of these are wasted, and can even cause bad driving when recording drivers purposely put themselves in danger to record a video for YouTube, but for insurance purposes, they are invaluable.
In this video caught by a dashcam (and unsurprisingly posted to YouTube), the driver of a BMW X5 rams a biker in what looks like a purposeful move, and then once the biker is down on the floor, speeds away. Thankfully, a couple of cars further up the road see this, and proceed to block the BMW from escaping. Fortunately, it wasn’t reported that the biker sustained any injuries from this incident.
