These days you see more and more riders with an action cam mounted somewhere. Camera prices have dropped and the technology has advanced to a level that lets you shoot footage that is actually worth watching.
This can be used to show that you weren’t bluffing about dropping the hammer during that group ride or Strava KOM segment, but – more importantly – it might serve as proof in case you are confronted with motorists’ less desired behavior.
Whether such footage will put an end to the ‘your word against mine’ debate remains to be seen. At the very least, it can be used to (publicly) expose such behavior, which is what we’re seeing a lot of right now.
Cycliq, maker of the Fly6 rear view and the Fly12 front view camera, has a section of their website reserved for not only that, but also the more funny and sometimes painfully hilarious footage shot by cyclists from around the globe.
