Most of these clips are motorists thinking they are too important to wait for others.
This coincides with my own experience.

I have been laughing all day at these saddoes moaning about 1000's of other saddoes moaning about "the traffic". Sheep the lot of them, you would think there was an upcoming famine on the way.

If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the precipitate.

Strange how many dash cam users are willing to show the world how poor
their own driving is.

Those videos could usefully display speed - strikes me a number of those
near misses happened at least in part because the cam-car was going too
fast.

Most of them seem to be unable to anticipate and are late starting to
slow down. Then take up valuable workload capacity by using the horn.

Indeed - wouldn't surprise me at all if some actually speed up for the
camera.

A lot of these dash cammers are drama queens, especially motorcyclists. They see a developing hazardous situation and only take action at the last second just to get one on tape for Youtube.

Less than 10% of these clips show a hazardous situation...
