CNN helmet cam video

The US-based TV channel Cable News Network (CNN) just ran the news story - see the first video below - of a young Canadian cyclist Luke Rae who became so irritated with bad driving that he fitted a camera to his cycling helmet. According to him, "Too many drivers were running me off the road and I never have a witness."

The CNN segment shows some of the the worst incidents that occured over a year, with the commentory describing, "An urban battlegound of bad driver attitude and outright disrespect" and concludes, "Now that you've seen it from [the cyclist's] point of view, watch out; you never know who's watching out for you."
