The truth is that motorist drivers do not always respect the laws that were created for cyclists. Wearing a camera while riding your bicycle is especially useful in road rage cases.
Just imagine riding your bike and a driver deliberately turns their car into your bicycle and tries to knock you over? You could sustain some serious damages because a bicycle does not have the same protection that a car, truck or bus has.
Footage from a camera serves as physical evidence if you ever get into an accident with another car. This footage can show how the driver of the vehicle purposely tried to harm you out of spite or through neglectful acts.
Many cyclists have adopted the use of cameras because of their many negative encounters with car and truck drivers. There have even been cases where drivers have gotten out of their cars and beaten cyclist.
If you have been through an accident while cycling, having as much evidence as possible will solidify your case. Having a digital camera or video device available at the time of the accident can help protect your rights once you have been in an accident.
If the accident was caused by the other driver’s intentional acts or neglectful ones, the footage will help demonstrate that.
Cyclist vs Car Accidents
The relationship between cyclists and drivers has been tense for the vast majority of people. Many drivers do not understand why a cyclist has laws that protect them while they are on a shared road with a car.
Many motorists do not have the patience to wait for a cyclist or grow increasingly aggravated when they see one. These hateful feelings have caused many cyclists to endure severe injuries and even fatal ones.
Once these cameras start being used more throughout the Nation, it is possible that the price of the cameras will be reduced so that more cyclists are able to buy these cameras in an attempt to protect their rights.
When a person knows they are being watched, they are more likely to act according to the law and on their best behavior.
