@ Dashmellow yes I checked the Wikipedia site as well. Sorry to sound off in the previous post but some decisions and arguements made in the name of privacy are just beyond belief.Next they will be poking peoples eyes out with a stick in case they invade some ones privacy by looking at them. Ipol
@ Dashmellow yes you are right but a dashcam recording your journey is a safety feature to guard against insurance scams and false accusations, and has proved in the past to be an aid to successful police prosecutions after being presented by responsible members of the public who happened to be in the right place at the right time with their dashcams running. My blood starts to boil at political policy makers that have their heads permanently buried in the sand. On a positive note it puts them in a perfect position for one to put a well placed running kick.....(if only) Ipol
@ Dashmellow sorry for the confusion I dont always type the way i am thinking. I was not trying to make an argument it was meant to be a dig at inept politicians. PS I hope your not a politician ...........as for surveillance becoming ubiquitous beyond dashcams I think we have already crossed that threshold, and as you rightly say dashcams and cameras hidden in eyeglasses are separate issues. @Tobi@s thanks for the clarification on dashcam legality in germany.
hehe glad to hear that...... looks like I need to put some reading glasses on ( not the google glass type ) fully understood now..... at my age when one is trying to type in english and at the same time hold a conversation in french with my lovely french lady confusion often ensues.
