While at the shop to install a new Tire Pressure Monitoring System sensor, an unscrupulous technician tried to take a Tesla Model S P85D for a joyride. However, some preventative moves by the owner foiled the plan, and the dash cam recorded it all.


While the popular, luxury sedan runs on electricity, the Tesla Model S doesn't respond well to being struck by lightning.


Dramatic dash-cam video shows a police officer in a Tucson suburb using his cruiser to ram an armed suspect, sending him flying in the air before the car smashes into a wall.


A police dashcam in New Jersey captured the explosion of a home under renovation because of a gas leak. Fifteen people were harmed in the blast.


This police officer in Dover, DE, gets caught doing a full-body performance of Taylor Swift's Shake It Off while driving around in his cruiser.


A police officer in Florida is lucky to be alive after suffering serious injuries during a traffic stop in Florida. He pulled a vehicle over because the female driver was suspected of being under the influence. However, after a few questions, the woman sped away briefly trapping the officer in the vehicle and running over the officer's foot.


We've seen some truly harrowing videos from Russian dashcams, recently. However, none of them rise to the level of weirdness as this latest one. Apparently in Russia, just because you're dressed as a quartet of children's cartoon characters, doesn't make you immune from road rage.


Eastern Europe. Dashcams. They go together like vodka and more vodka. In today's installment, we have what is arguably one of the most remarkable crashes we've ever witnessed.


Could dashcams act as sort of a magnet for bizarre events? It seems entirely plausible, considering the sheer number of insane things routinely caught on the handy video cameras. This latest one comes from Ukraine, which as you probably know, has been locked in a pretty nasty dispute with Russia and allegedly Russian-backed separatists.


Dashcam video has brought us some fantastic images over the years, but it recorded true tragedy overnight on July 31 in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. A gas main explosion in the city was responsible for at least 25 deaths and over 250 injuries, according to The Wall Street Journal. The cause of the horrific event is still under investigation. However, people in the area reported smelling gas beforehand.


Based on the compiled evidence, driving in Russia is a perilous, potentially deadly venture that requires complete and total suspension of one's self-preservation instincts. Considering this, you can imagine what it's like riding a motorcycle on the notoriously wild Russian roads.


The growing popularity of dashcams is catching all sorts of bad behavior on the road, and the devices can often help police find the perpetrator. Case in point: This alleged thief who was filmed pickpocketing on the move in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.


For many people being pulled over by the police is among the most stressful situations possible and would be one of the worst times for a marriage proposal. But that was exactly what Matt Van Vliet did to his girlfriend, Samantha Labo.


There are (few) appropriate times for shouting "Look Ma, no hands!" Driving a car is not one of those times. Yet that didn't stop a man from North Yorkshire, England from driving, evidently relaxed, with his hands behind his head.


If the Chevrolet Corvette isn't the first vehicle that comes to mind when you think of technological innovation – there is, after all, something resolutely old-school about even the latest Stingray – it might be time to recalibrate your viewpoint.


If you were driving in the rain on a two-lane highway, caught a tire on the edge of the pavement and flipped your car, what would you do? Let out a yelp, maybe a scream? We would too, but somehow this woman found herself in a barrel roll and remained totally silent; completely composed. After the crash, the woman is fully conscious - even slightly perturbed judging by the look on her face. We're just glad she wasn't seriously injured (and we hope nobody else was, either).


We understand traffic getting you down, but this is taking things to extremes. An Australian man went on an utter rampage during rush hour outside of Perth, on the country's west coast, with his ten-minute conniption backing up traffic for nearly an hour on the Kwinana Freeway.


A high-speed chase involving an allegedly drunk driver ended in a rather scary crash on Highway 41 in Milwaukee, WI in the wee hours of Monday morning. The driver of the Ford Taurus, 40-year-old Kevin Hutchins, hit speeds of up to 109 miles per hour, with three police cars in pursuit.


This video from the 2013 Halloween Hooptiefest 24 Hours of LeMons race is the kind of scary stuff that keeps us reviewing cars instead of racing them. This driver is puttering about, carrying good speed and, from the brief recording we can see, driving quite well. That is, until another driver, who seemingly comes out of nowhere, attempts to put his front tire where the passenger seat should be.


Dashcam videos can be divvied up into two categories - "I can't believe that just happened," and "You're lucky to be alive." The former is usually quite funny and entertaining, while the latter is usually kind of scary; involving a close call between our camera car and something quite dangerous.
