Money well spent.


Monday, August 25, 2014

I bought a couple of inexpensive ($50) sports cameras for my trike. One front, one back, and I hope I never need them. But the sad truth is, if there is an accident between a cyclist and a motorist, the police will believe the word of the motorist unless if (1) it is obvious that the cyclist is not at fault, (2) there are witnesses supporting the cyclist, or (3) a video shows what happened. I hope they were a waste of money.

But one of them paid for itself yesterday.

I wear cycling gloves and when I got home, I was missing them with no idea where I took them off. So I went to the video and there they were laying on the track at the train museum as I pulled away. It's not a long drive so when I put a load of towels and jeans in the dryer, I drove down and there they still were. Those gloves aren't cheap ... anything to do with a specialized sport is not cheap. Suffice to say, that $50 camera saved me from having to buy a new $50 pair of gloves.
