Run Off the Road, Cyclist? Get a Helmetcam.

Posted by Sarah Mirk on Thu, May 27, 2010 at 9:54 AM

From the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation comes the tale of one young cyclist who was tired of having no witnesses to cars running him off the road. So he installed a video camera on his helmet and filmed his rides for a year. Behold, the highlight reel:

I don't really agree with his assessment that drivers should be polite because you never know who's filming you. Shouldn't we try not to kill each other on the road because, you know, endangering someone's life is wrong, whether or not you're being filmed? Anyway. Cool project.
