I suspect that in some cases, yes, *if* the motorist recognizes there is a camera, they may stop and render aid. In many cases though, rendering aid will be too little, too late and the cyclist will die. In such a case, was the cyclist protected?

I can think of other scenarios where the driver (especially those of the criminal persuasion) would purposely not stop *if* they knew there was a camera.

Again, I could be wrong. But I see many posts where cameras are mentioned as making a cyclist safe. I'd just like to see some evidence that supports it.
