I'm not getting your second vid: "We are sorry, this video is no longer available"
Even when I'm driving and I see the driver of the car behind in my rear view mirror is on the phone it really raises my hackles. I find myself shouting and gesturing - get off the fekkin phone, tw@t!!!
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.
Yup, emailed the companies concerned.
Probably their bosses on the other end!
Good man. Let us know how you get on.
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.
Me too: almost a Pavlovian response now
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...
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.
You could alwayd try turning your head....
