Gungahlin fishtail

By johnboy 1 April 2011 30

“DRIVING CANBERRA” has posted this gem to YouTube with the following note:

Saw this at the corner of Gungahlin Dr and Wanganeen Av in Ngunnawal. Of course it had to be a white Holden Commodore ute, with standard rims on the rear.

Although not a smart thing to do, what was on that video is hardly the end of the world. I see way worse behaviour than that on our roads.

And no, I don’t condone it.

[You can actually photograph or film pretty-much anything you want to, yes, even children (gasp!).

Maybe the trend to in-car cameras is a reaction to the lack of policing, or maybe it’s so’s they can post the results on you tube or the Funny Video Show.

Either way, I can’t see a problem with it.

One interesting point to note though is that depending on their mood at the time, it IS illegal to video your (or someone elses) dealings with the police, so if theres police officers nearby, ensure youre not recording.

Once again dvaey, you’re wrong.

There is an increasing push in this direction by law enforcement agencies in the US. I believe it generally involves the police misusing anti wiretapping or surveillance laws. Google for “recording police illegal” or something similar.

Here’s an example – http://www.boston.com/news/local/massachusetts/articles/2010/01/12/police_fight_cellphone_recordings/

Pretty ugly stuff from the home of the free.

While we’re linking in-car video’s, let the mundaneness of the first few minutes wash over you in this one before the main event….pay attention out there.

You can film in public whatever you want, so long as you don’t zoom in on peoples, um, private bits. Pretty much anything else is fine, even if they are cops. That said, I’ve often found being deliberately annoy greatly increases your chances of being arrested.

does anyone know if its legal to have a camera mounted in your car?

Absolutely not!

You’re allowed to photograph/film anybody & anything you see on public property. You can even photograph/film private property as long as you’re on public grounds.

Why wouldn’t it be?

I don’t think it actually takes much time to plug in an $80 dash cam.

A GoProHD is a fair bit more than $80. Pretty popular for MTB and other sports, tho – nice cameras. Put in an SD card, mount it whereever with a suction-cup mount, press record.

on-topic: Probably best for white utes to save the sideways action for late at night on a quiet road, methinks.

Is representative a question-asking bot?

You can get a fairly good quality one for $88US. The really good ones with GPS, data recording etc can run into the $100s though.

anyone know the price to install a video camera and any suggestions on models etc?

you can get ones that automatically start when the car is turned on.
Kaiser baas road recorder, autoblackbox (had a cash for comment segment on ACA), cheap models off ebay. If its inside the car and you can press record, any handy cam would do. Just grab the right mount, otherwise your cam will become a missile in an accident.

Just remember that rubber mounts have been known to attract thieves looking for GPS’ in the glove box.
