Dashcam videos capture a lot of close calls, but this has got to be one of the most unique.
YouTuber Paul Ellis uploaded footage today of a hot air balloon traveling dangerously close to Marine Drive in Southport, England. You can see the balloon lose height and creep way too close for comfort toward busy traffic.
Luckily for Paul, the balloon operators and everyone else on the road—the hot air balloon manages to escape any collision with vehicles.
This tale is a perfect example of why drivers should invest in a dashcam. Hot air balloon collision will sound pretty suspicious to your insurance company.
