    I don't drive, but I do claim the lane. I'm entitled to the same room a car driver needs to stay safe on the road. Whether they like that fact is another matter.

    As for using a camera on the public highway, there's no law against it. You don't own copyright of your own features, in the UK. You stand a greater chance of actually being caught on private CCTV, than by a cyclist with a collision camera in use.

    For what it's worth, helmet mounted lights are a bigger danger. Turn your head and the wrong colour light is now showing in the wrong direction, illegal but you get those who just don't care about that bit.

    Did I miss the bit where Evel Kineval jumps 52 buses on his motor bike? Maybe the OP posted the wrong video?

    Whilst it is an old clip, it remains one of my firm favourites. Could only be improved if it was Ronnie Pickering himself in the clip. :laugh::laugh:

    Although, if you're going to post inflammatory threads you may as well go for a tried and proven subject.

    Clearly an emotive issue but then I never could get this modern obsession with filming every damn thing and using it against people.
    One pattern I have noticed I that it seems to be mostly or predominantly men who use these things. So is it a gender thing or do women just have more sense common or otherwise?

    I'm just one man, who uses a collision camera, who's got hold of similar cameras for four women who cycle.

    Maybe your approach to the subject is wrong.

    Ah, I paid the extra tenner and bought an anti collision camera. Much safer.

    Many helmet mounted lights are a menace even if facing the "right" way. Worst _ rear flashers boasting names like retina fryer or something. Oh so cleverly at rider's head height and so oh so cleverly positioned to flash straight into the eyes of a following cyclist, particularly on a cycling lane. Next time I have the misfortune to follow one I'll suggest they shove it up their arse. Far more aerodynamic.
