You can now upload your driving incident videos to the Dobadriver YouTube Channel                                   Find an in- car camera here                         Incident reports less than 24 hrs old will not be available                               Dobadriver is used to store records of dangerous and inconsiderate driving behaviour on both land and water and then make those reports available for everyone to see.                                                    The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing                         Remember the 'Golden Rule'... Do unto others as you would have them do unto you (i.e.  treat others the same way you would like to be treated)       Always drive according to conditions.              Courtesy towards other drivers is a sensible way to improve road safety for you and your passengers!                 Thank you to all who have taken the time and effort to record their experiences for others to see....... hopefully others may change their poor driving behaviour as a result              Driving with your lights on makes it a safer trip for everyone.                     Having a driver's licence is a privilege and not a right, allowing the holder to share the roads and waterways with others in a safe and responsible manner.                   To refresh or improve your skills, take a look at the Safer driving tips and videos education page                         Hooning, like drink driving is a dangerous activity for the hooner and spectators alike, not to mention innocent bystanders.                                 Doing the right thing is the Aussie way!                            If your actions are intimidating to others then you are no different to the schoolyard bully, and that is just not on!                              Isn't it amazing that those with the least driving experience are the ones involved in  hooning and street racing!                          You as the driver have a responsibility to yourself and your passengers to  drive in a safe and courteous manner.                                                   Hooning supports the saying 'a little knowledge is dangerous' !

Roundabouts

 

The rules and methods relating to roundabout useage continues to baffle some!

 

Refresh your

knowledge here

 

Thankfully the majority of drivers are courteous and considerate, so you may even wish to recognise them by using the 'Good driving behaviour (congratulations)'    incident report.  

---------------------------------------------------------

 

Although you should report 'Suspicious behaviour' to the appropriate authorities, it may be beneficial to store the information here as a backup.      

The information may be helpful to investigators chasing abductions, lost persons, would-be terrorists, escapees etc........

-------------------------------------------------------

 

If the Dobadriver concept saves just one life then it is well and truly worth the effort!  

 

-----------------------------------------------

 

By documenting the incident, the offender is unable to escape the possibility of being held accountable in the future for a similar incident.

 

-------------------------------------------

 

It takes just 6 seconds to crush a hoon driver's car - but it takes even less time for a street-racing vehicle to create a tragedy!

 

------------------------------

Tip

Have your passenger take a photo of the offending vehicle with a phone or  camera and then use the picture as information when reporting to Dobadriver.  This would assist greatly in the information gathering process.

 

---------------------------------------------

 

It is not the intention of Dob-a-Driver to use the gathered data for purposes other than enlightening Australia as to what occurs on our roads and waterways to the detriment of others, although whoever has access to the Internet is able to view the report information.

 

  This may include -

  • Insurance companies

  • Police

  • Government

  • Employers (both existing and future)

  • Mothers

  • Fathers

  • Etc. etc.

 

We are sure that the greater majority would be more than comfortable with the concept and objective.

 

When a person's actions have a negative impact on others, it is generally considered  to be unacceptable!

 

----------------------------------------

 

This Central Database can be used by anyone to report unacceptable driving behaviour on both land and water and is available for all to see. Consider 'Dobadriver' a big notepad in the centre of Australia!

 

---------------------------------------------

 

The Driver is  responsible for the safe operation of the vehicle under their control and the safety of all passengers within that vehicle including those around them.

 

-----------------------------

 

Thank you to those who have taken the time to make a report so far, incidents that would  normally have gone un-noticed  are now been stored for future reference.  Some of the gathered information is being presented  as statistical data and you are able to search for  previously entered reports on the 'Search Databasedropdown selection.

 

-------------------------------------------------

 

Generally speaking  

 

We all complain from time to

time about the restrictions placed on us by authorities, which may take the form of regulations, signage or directives in general,  and as a rule don't like to be told what to do...... but most of us  also realise and understand that these restrictions are a necessary requirement to provide a safe environment for everyone.

 

-------------------------

 

  Unacceptable behaviour  is -

 

  • That which places others needlessly in harms way.

  • Where the behaviour adversely affects others.

  • Where the driving behaviour is considered to be unsafe.

  • Where the behaviour is considered unacceptable.

  • Behaviour which leads to Road Rage.

 

------------------------------

 

Hoons may have some luck avoiding the Police, but they won't be able to avoid that onlooker or local resident looking out of their window taking down the vehicle's details with the intention of reporting it to 'Dob-a-Driver'.......  the driver of the vehicle is responsible for the safety of all within that vehicle as well as the consequences of their actions on others!

 

--------------------------

 

Even the considerate have off days.

 

From time to time we all tend to do silly things  we wish we hadn't, and hopefully they have not been serious enough to have done harm to ourselves or others,  but there are some who either don't realise they are being dangerous by their actions and there are others who really don't care about the consequences of their actions.
When reporting events to 'Dobadriver', it is the latter more serious ones which are definately worth making the effort to include as they should not go un-noticed.
Even though we are able to  report any incident which we feel noteworthy, we shouldn't become too petty here, instead reserving the database for those incidents which adversely affect others safety and are generally considered unacceptable within our society.   This is not to say that this database is unable to accommodate every incident imaginable, it is, but is more about not letting petty events get us down and change our quality of life.   Some example incidents
here.
 

--------------------- 

 

Have  you  ever  wanted  to  give an inconsiderate  or reckless driver a piece of your mind but thought it too provoking or possibly a waste of time?

 

 Do you feel that it would most probably have little or no effect anyway, as these drivers do not have the same regard for others as you, or the natural ability you possess to ' do the right thing '?

 

Well..... here's your chance to report those offenders in such  a   way that  while  they continue  to  repeatedly commit these  offences, they are having a database of their actions accumulating against them.

 

There are drivers who are totally oblivious to the fact they are repeatedly breaking the rules, and then there are those who just don't care one way or the other.

 

When the Police arrive they aren't committing an offence, or have left the scene, so the incidents need to be recorded  as close to the time they occur as possible keeping safety in mind, and this is where Dobadriver provides a system of keeping track of those events.

----------------------------------------

 

It appears to be evident from the statistics shown in Dobadriver that  'Speeding' may be perceived by others as less of a  problem than  'Dangerous Driving'  whereby the act of driving dangerously by some is more of a concern.   Speeding is still a concern though due to a greater degree of damage and injury  at the higher than indicated road speeds.

-------------------------------------------------------

 

If the Dobadriver concept saves just one life then it is well and truly worth the effort!  

 

-----------------------------------------------

 

Please, please don't text while driving.      

See why here.

Can be used for both land and water incident reports.

 

The driver of the vehicle is responsible for the safety of their passengers and other road users, and as such needs to be held accountable for unacceptable use of that vehicle!

 

With the possibility of having the incident recorded by other motorists or even bystanders, there may be a greater degree of restraint by would-be offenders and just maybe the application of a little common sense.

  

 

Once offenders realise they may be reported  by  other drivers, pedestrians or even onlookers, and have their details and poor behaviour  placed  on  a  Central database for all to see,  they  may develop some restraint  and modify their behaviour, making it a much safer place for everyone.

 

With the number of Police Officers we currently have to patrol our vast network of roads and waterways these days, they can only do so much to curb the ongoing blatant disregard for the rules and their fellow drivers, so taking the time to collect and store the incidents on  the Central Database may go a long way in reducing their workload.

 

It is NOT the intention of  Dobadriver to replace or negate the efforts of our Police Force, but rather to assist them by providing a  separate mechanism of reporting.

 

Should you have  occasion to  report such  an incident, and with safety in mind, please gather the information as close to the event time as possible and transfer the details to the Make a Report form facility from the Menu area above.

 

 

Remember - If the incident isn't recorded, then each time that person re-offends, it is just considered to be the first time they have done that.  If someone is injured or killed in the future by their actions then the excuse is ' I've never done anything like this before!' (and in the scheme of things...officially they haven't) and the incident may go unpunished .... once again the victim and their families lose!

 

Important note:   Only submit this report if you are 100% sure of the accuracy of the details and please do not falsely report a driving incident.   It would be extremely difficult to prove the accuracy of the reported incident without actual proof therefore the information is provided for statistical and/or research purposes.

Please Note:

It is not the intention of Dobadriver to instigate the dragging of individuals through the legal system, but rather to allow the general public a vehicle for recording events which would otherwise go un-noticed and unrecorded, hopefully giving rise to some basic form of deterrent together with a sufficient dose of common sense thereby making Australia safe for all.

 

Some have expressed concern relating to the entry of vindictive and totally false reports, and although this may happen as it does with most well-intentioned systems, the majority of people just wish to make known that unacceptable behaviour has occurred and needs to be reported. Would-be offenders usually have been able to get away with the offence without consequence, until now!

 

The greater majority of the general public should not have any reason for concern as they do have due consideration and respect for others, but unfortunately, some in our community do not, so please take the time to record the incidents so they may be held accountable for their actions.   Inconsiderate and poor drivers will begin to accumulate multiple reports against them from various sources and locations and it will be readily identified from the search engine reports.

 

Personal details associated with the incidents will  not to be made available to the general public, so there can be no repercussions for the individual making the report given they are not made falsely.

 

 

 

 DISCLAIMER:        This Web Site was set up for those throughout Australia who wish to express their anger and frustration in a safer and more effective manner whenever they encounter inappropriate behavior on our roads and waterways. The information gathered is for statistical and/or research purposes and may be used as a statistical barometer for road and water incidents.   Use of the search facility is basic and intended as a way of allowing all to see the kinds of behaviour some of our fellow drivers engage in.  Due to the fact that this database is open to the general public for entering incident reports, Dobadriver.com shall not be held responsible or liable for incorrect or malicious entries.     As it would be extremely difficult to prove the accuracy of the reported incident without actual proof, the information is hereby provided as statistical and/or research material.

  • Travel east along the D'Aguilar Hwy, 30 mins out of Kilcoy. 12 cars + ours were behind a truck doing 90 in a 100 zone. The car in question came up over took 4 cars behind us then swerved in front of us, nearly clipping the front of our car and narrowly avoiding a head on with a car in the opposite direction. This continued car by car over the next 15 mins to get in front of the truck. 3 times the car nearly caused a head on accident by swerving and pushing in on cars.A lowlife and a real danger!
