Dash cams are slowly but surely changing the automotive landscape. Ever wonder how employees feel about you or treat your car when drop off your prized possession for service?

This is utter insanity. In case you are not familiar with it, the Isle of Man Tourist TT (Tourist Trohpy) is a motorycle race held on the Isle of Man which is considered a self-governing part of the British Crown. Basically, a bunch of riders wit stupid fast bikes gather on a small island off the coast of Great Britain and race against the clock at full throttle.
