While watching the news last night, my wife asked about a story on some snowmobile riders who had to rescue one of their own when that rider was buried in an avalanche.
Her question was, "why was he wearing a camera?" I explained that a lot of people record their adventures and then I deftly mentioned that some bicyclists have cameras to record their rides and drivers' bad behavior.
I knew her response - "you should get one." The question is, I'm not sure I want one.
I understand it provides a good mechanism against bad drivers and I've seen the odd video or two on-line where drivers were arrested based on the video provided by the bicyclist. Here's a good example.
I've had the odd incident or two but generally, it's not a problem. I had a Phoenix city bus come w-a-y too close a few weeks ago and maybe a camera would have helped.
SO - do you use a camera? How handy is it? Is it worth the (my) perceived hassle?
