INSIDEEVS: Tesla Model 3 Dashcam Captures Road Rage Incident

October 23rd, 2018 by

 

Feast your eyes on this crazy display of complete nonsense and stupidity.

If not just because we felt compelled to share and remind people what type of ridiculousness is happening on the roads today, this is another opportunity to provide a solid example of the new Tesla Model 3 dashcam (TeslaCam). Today, dashcam’s are becoming increasingly popular, and for good reason. In the world we live in, it seems just about everything is caught on tape, and while that may not be the best situation in certain cases, being able to provide footage of incidents that occur on the road is surely a positive.

Few cars have built-in dashcams, but we’re likely to see that changing in the near future. The Tesla Model 3 (and all Tesla vehicles) now have an inclusive dashcam that comes standard as part of the recent Version 9 software update. If you don’t own a Tesla or a car that has a dashcam, we suggest picking up an aftermarket product if you can afford it and if you believe that it may be an asset based on your driving situation.

Leave us your thoughts in the comment section below.

Video Description via Michael Wilson on YouTube:

I literally just got my Model 3 set up with the dash cam feature and captured this. The cuts are because Tesla keeps the videos in 1 minute segments. I probably could have got this smoother, but I’m no video editor.

This happened on 32 West in Columbia, MD.

Brief timeline:

0:32 – White SUV cuts off black SUV
0:40 – Black SUV gets pissed, pulls in front of white SUV and comes to a complete stop
0:55 – Having not noticed these previous events, I assume the black SUV is disabled
1:05 – I think the black SUV is pulling over to get out of traffic
1:10 – I start to realize something is amiss. I just let them do their thing.
1:30 – I vacillate between trying to get close enough to capture this for possible police involvement and trying not to get involved myself.
1:42 – White SUV finally overtakes black SUV.
1:55 – Black SUV overtakes white SUV again.
2:03 – Black SUV maybe hits/side swipes the white SUV, who is now off of the side of the highway.
2:33 – Black SUV almost runs the white SUV into the guide rail.
2:44 – White SUV overtakes and both cars pull off onto the shoulder. I had moved into their lane in hopes of getting their license plates. Looks like I did earlier in the video, but I didn’t know that at the time.

A few seconds later I call police.
