The thing that strikes me about those is that maybe half the people who
posted them were themselves demonstrating incompetence and ignorance of
traffic law.

One comment:-
"You know what I find amazing, that some of the drivers of these
dashcams are terrible at anticipating hazards."

Not just hazards. Some people manage to make a meal out of some
perfectly ordinary situations.

You may be right but in this case we have clear evidence of a motorvehicleist driving on a pavement and seriously endangering the life of a pedestrian..
According to some posters this never happens.

Indeed - just go a bit slower and leave more room and watch what other
road users are doing. Although I had occasion to use the horn and
shout abuse yesterday, at the woman in a SUV who was stationary on a
roundabout and occupying two lanes, one of which was otherwise clear
and the way I wanted to go. I'm not sure if she was oblivious,
unaware of the size of her vehicle, or just one of those "if I'm stuck
in traffic then **** everyone else" characters.

Which reminds me - a few days ago I was beeped and aggressively
overtaken by someone while negotiating traffic at a junction on the way
into town - when I inevitably caught up moments later (heavy traffic
and multiple lights and junctions) and asked her what the problem was
she told me that I should be on the cycle path, not in the road. I
truly felt that I had arrived as a proper urban cyclist, nobody has
ever said that to me before. I advised her to study the Highway Code
before leaving her stuck in a queue and proceeding to my destination,
where I had no difficulty parking right outside. I expect she'd made
it to the next set of lights by then. :-)
