There are very good reasons why cyclists have taken up using video cameras to record their travels. Some document road rage incidents, drivers who fail to give way, pedestrians not paying attention and of course recording a journey just for the sheer fun of it. The main reason video cameras are used is to provide solid evidence in the event of an accident. When there is no video evidence, it’s your word against theirs, a driver may claim you were riding erratically and veered in front of them. As more and more people turn to commuting by bicycle, a camera is a form of insurance.
It is easy to imagine a scenario where a person makes an honest mistake in traffic and an overzealous cyclist and their camera stumbles into a situation someone does not want recorded.
