Morning all, As a motorcyclist I do witness incredible amount of cases, when people are on their phones - talking, texting, updating facebook etc. I have seen people eating behind the wheel or checking emails on iPad while driving 60 mph. Nothing new, I know that but sometimes because they do not pay attention very dangerous situations happen. I do wear helmet camera and have good evidence there. My question is: is there any point of reporting things like that? I'm not saying that I encourage ignoring things, but does police follow up on reports supported by video? If there is minor offence I can imagine priority would be rather low.
This is a pretty unusual video because you rarely get to hear what is said between the caller and the call taker. This worked out pretty well, not least because the complainant was quite calm. I'm not sure I'd make as much sense if I'd just had my vehicle stolen at gunpoint. The call would have been dispatched immediately and then additional information would have appeared on the officers MDTs as it came from the caller.
Hi, I'm interested on some feedback from serving Police officers in the usefulness of vehicles and cyclists using cameras to record their commute to work. As I’m sure most of you are aware of the growing use of such devices as there are loads of video’s on youtube of accidents and incidents of bad driving. What I would like to know, from a police officer’s point of view, do these cameras help prosecute people? Are these camera’s sort of seen as the public trying to police the roads? (i.e Catching drivers using their phones) Can the police take action from just viewing the footage on youtube or do they require a complaint and a statement from the person recording? Thanks.
