Yeah, good work, though I think you’re being a little too kind. He was deliberately endangering your life, he should’ve been in serious trouble. But hopefully that will be the last time he harasses a cyclist.
Looking at this from the perspective of looking back at this incident from months later, it’s an excellent example of having your facts straight (plate, dates, times), installing and using a helmet cam, posting the relevant parts, and picking the best moment to follow up. You were not crying wolf, you had multiple reports, you approached the matter as calmly as possible, and opted not to press charges so much as “want it to stop”, thus leaving the police some leeway to handle it effectively.
If you search SJ1000, you can find a lot of different sellers/brands for the same unit. It has a looping feature, g-sensor to counteract previously mentioned looping feature, and HD video recording. Also at cheapest price point I’ve seen, around $50-80
I’ll let the group know how it works when I get it. At this price range though, assuming it works okay at night, it’s (at $60) less than half the price of the long delayed RideEye and a 1/4th of the increasingly expensive Fly6.
I don’t particularly enjoy the prospect of dealing with law enforcement, but I see no other way at present to deal with the reckless driving and harassment I frequently encounter.
