    Using cams abroad

    Shouldn’t something like this be a sticky on here?

    It’s still a video camera used in public which is what these rules/laws are aimed at.

    Tom, what do you think the local plod will be most interested in, placing the following in the correct order, highest to lowest:

    Parking on a double yellow line

    Being complicit in murder

    Using a video recorder

    Exceeding the speed limit

    Having a turnip in the panniers

    Possessing an overly loud exhaust

    Not having a passport, driving licence and evidence of valid insurance, available for inspection

    Whistling (out of tune)

    Driving over the limit

    Not waving

    Not having a turnip in the panniers

    Failure to observe a stop line

    Crossing an unbroken white line to turn into a petrol station

    Acting like a fuckwit in the company of likeminds

    I'm guilty of too many of those

    Having read the article I was convinced it must have been published in the Daily Mail - every idiot's source of half truths and misleading statements - but no, it was in a Which piece. What have things come to? Once upon a time Which told you which was the best hot water bottle or vacuum cleaner. Now they are confusing motorists and bikers with this sort of info.

    I'm with Wapping - what sort of officer of the law is going to trouble his or herself to enforce these petty regulations - actually, having once been an officer of the law, I know what sort would seek to prosecute for using a dash cam. We had a word for them - TITS . Film and be damned I say

    ps - what happens if you are filming some scenery using your smart phone and happened to include a shot of a Swiss person. Will they invade to defend the citizens liberties. It's a worry

    Surely whistling out of tune would be high on their priority list.
