Yep, post away.

It'll need to be from an external source though like a YouTube link or a Dropbox link.

Why on earth would anyone want to drive INTO that?

I was in Bamako, Mali with my boss perhaps 20 years ago, sat on the outside part of a cafe.
I saw this cloud in the distance, and being a 'regular', one of the serving staff pulled us inside - 10' before it hit!!

The boss gave him a decent tip / bonus!!

Depends on the storm and it's intensity.

Amazing visibility within - more than nothing!

Personally, I WOULD stop - as far away as possible!!

TBH, never experienced driving / travelling in them, which may change my viewpoint - as it is, NOT A CHANCE!!

Most polite thought I had when viewing was 'SPECTACULAR STUPIDITY'!!

If you can find a suitable sand storm you can transform your car so it looks like a chrome finish

He was driving way too fast once it became dense. Looked as if he was doing 40-50mph when he could see 10 feet in front of the car. A stopped vehicle and he'd have been toast - 50mph impact.

Not playing in YT anywhere near the RAW file far crisper played neat.

Also, jerky in YT but silky smooth via Firefox.

Here's an issue all shortarse motorists know only too well. The Sunvisor doesn't come down far enough.


To test what this feels like leave your sun visor up and carry on as normal into bright sun. (particularly when it's wet and the wet ground is acting like a mirror !

I liked the way you used the truck as a sun shield towards the end of the clip.

Driving towards the sun is always a problem so a CPL is a must.

That doesn't sound particularly sensible. Or are you so short that you can fit underneath when it brake tests you?

I don't know if the truck driver would deliberately brake test you, but many seem to have an 'instinctive reaction' to do just that - slam on the anchors when somebody's too close - rather than simply stay calm, steady, perhaps move a little to one side ... could be someone setting himself up to pass.

I've been driven by a friend who did just that when someone came up behind - in a minor state of panic.

Sun visors are something which is brilliant on the Civic - best visors in the business.
I'm one of those SA persons, and like to have the seat set at its lowest, but I always find 'room for adjustment' with the Civic visors - having to raise them slightly whereas nearly all other cars have insufficient cover.

One thing I can definitely say 'well done Honda'.

I just want to get the best MPG from my imp.
She is a thirsty thing, she does about 30MPG from the 2.0 non turbo under normal driving style.

They wont break test as I slip into their blindspot, they wont know I am there.

And you won't have any idea what is ahead of them, with the huge blind spot you have created for yourself. If they have to brake in an emergency you're right into the back of them!
