I hope that there were no injuries in that pile up Dave but in times like that a dash cam can be invaluable

That's why it concerns me when people refer to 'trivial offences'. They may well be trivial in the minds of some, but one major error and they cease being trivial.

From what DaveR has described there were three major errors. If you run in to the back of someone there is only one person at fault.

... as said by Dave - fault would be with the drivers who ran into the back of the car ahead.
... too fast, probably within the speed limit
... too close, probably
... not being fully attentive - yes
... dash cam would be of little use in the first car other that would notice a jolt, would be incriminating for any of the three cars - only possible case of dash cam being useful would be a rear-facing one in the first car, or perhaps the next two as well.

... I have been in Liverpool today and had many instances where traffic lights turned to amber as I approached but with plenty of time for me to stop without braking sharply, yet I saw many cars go through (it was two lanes) on amber and sometimes on red - my dash cam would probably show them up ... what would you do?  There were no accidents or near-misses.

Sadly DVT that is a sign of the times and it happens everywhere, not just in big towns or cities.   As individuals there is little we can do to curb this type of driving and as there were no accidents or near misses then the drivers should consider themselves lucky.  In Colwyn Bay we have a daily problem of idiots coming down St Andrews Road and going straight over the give way sign before turning left to go down King's Drive.    They don't look right down Pen Y Bryn Road which has the right of way and near misses occur daily there.    I just wish that I had a dash cam when an uninsured driver did that and wrote off one of my cars

SANTA Claus certainly did come to Town yesterday, hundreds of them in fact, as runners turned up to take part in Llandudno's 5K Santa Dash.

People of all ages put on their best red suits and hats and long white beards to line-up at the starting point on the Promenade for 11am.

Runners came from all over to take part in the race. St. David's Hospice had around 48 people participate in order to raise money for a good cause.

Those involved walked, jogged and/or ran their way through the 5km route which took them along the beautiful sea front of Llandudno North Shore. Everyone who completed the race received a medal.    ref Pioneer
