It’s a relatively new technology that drivers have been using to settle insurance claims and capture footage of the unexpected.

But dashcams are now providing a useful source of evidence for police forces the country over, and highlighting dodgy driving on our roads.

This compilation of footage sent in to the Eastern Daily Press and its sister outlets in the past year shows just a small amount of some of the dubious - and downright dangerous - driving around Norfolk and Suffolk.

It includes red lights being run, drivers being cut up and even a man walking on the A11 as cars zoom past.

In the most shocking clip, taken last year, one angry driver is seen ramming another on the A140 near Diss, after driving the wrong way down the carriageway.
