Your monthly fix of dangers, ridiculous antics, and bad driving on the road captured with Nexar.
Each month, we give you the videos captured by Nexar’s users that created the biggest buzz online. Some are just for fun, while others are quite serious.
April kept us on our toes. From impromptu drag racing, to the dangers of lane splitting— we hope last month’s videos will help raise awareness to some of the leading causes of collisions.
1. Car merges into speeding motorcycle
Our community on Facebook whipped up a pretty big argument over who was at fault. Some insisted it was the Prius for not looking, some blamed the motorcyclist for speeding while lane-splitting, and some claimed both were negligent. If you have a take on this or any of our videos, head to our Facebook page to join the conversation.
2. Taxi passenger rams door into oncoming vehicle
Keep your wits about you. Cyclists aren’t the only ones getting doored in NYC.
3. Drag racing
You never know what you’ll find on the road. Seriously, the possibilities are endless.
4. Shirtless jaywalker in Las Vegas
What happens in Vegas sometimes gets recorded by a dashcam.
5. Bus crosses double yellow line, scraping car
When the mistakes of others fall on your shoulders, having evidence on your side is crucial.
6. Gunning in on red
A key feature of Nexar is its ability to record collisions and then generate reports on them using your phone’s sensors to ‘feel’ the forces of the collision. So when that other driver runs red and actually hits you, there will be no question who was at fault.
7. All aboard the hot mess express
Who do you think is at fault? The traffic controllers? The cyclist? the oncoming vehicles? You have your say on our Facebook page.
In the meantime, drive safely out there!
