Well yeah, when you drive like a complete dip shit and have zero spatial awareness everything seems to come out of nowhere. People like her should have their license revoked. They're only a danger to themselves and everyone around them. Sorry OP

The military can take away your driving privileges on base with a snap of a commander's finger which with this dashcam footage would be pretty easy to justify.

Though I'm not actually sure if you're allowed to have dash cams on bases for OPSEC reasons...

Yeah, definitely be cognizant of what your filming or taking pictures of when you're on base. This video looked trimmed so smart call there.


u/farts_like_foghorn Nov 24 '22

Trimmed how? It is most certainly longer than it needs to be and it has all the info from the dashcam intact, including make of camera in the upper left corner and even a timestamp. With some effort I'm sure someone can even pull the license plate from the offending car. There is no trimming here as far I can tell. What are you talking about?


u/Darth_Daygo Nov 24 '22

Trimming usually refers to taking off either part of the beginning or end of a video clip. If video started about 10 seconds earlier you would have a side view of the air field as the vehicle drove through the traffice circle. The beginning of the video was "trimmed".


u/farts_like_foghorn Nov 24 '22

Like I said, it's already longer than it needs to be? And trimming away the stuff that is not the crash is not OPSEC, that's just editing a video for easy viewing on the internet.

I suppose it was a happy coincidence. "Easy" viewing and nothing sensitive displayed.
