    It's working now - I think it was just finishing being processed.

    Have you reported them? The problem I see so many of them I generally don't bother as I just don't have the time.

    Hmm I'm definately anti-phone, and the other day a cycling work college gave me a lift in her car ... and whilst stuck in a queue of traffic, she answered her not hands free phone.

    I found I couldn't say anything (she is a prickly pear that I have to work with) but felt I had to look out all windows to keep an extra eye out. I felt very uncomfortable in the situation, and I felt unsafe for both myself and others. She probably travelled only 200-400 m during the conversation.

    i think i'll make a hi-viz and have a mobile phone motif with 'hands-free please' on the back.

    I like how quickly that second guy put his phone down.... Nice one.

    I need another camera. I find it's hard to point the helmet cam sometimes, esp off to the side. I need an up-my-sleeve-cam, so I can just point a finger at the person...:smile:

    I was thinking precisely that when looking at the footage. Short of taking the camera off the bars or helmet and pointing it at sideways (seems a little too obvious to me) I'm struggling to get footage of things next to me.
