    You can already do that. What I don't like about this is that it essentially is giving police powers to everyone. But maybe I can photoshop up some nice **** to get my asshole neighbors in trouble.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    How about if their passenger does it? I am always a passenger right now, til I eventually get my license.

    Or they do it while stopped at a red light? Or it is just incidental footage while filming something else? Heck, it wouldn't even have to be limited to people in a car.

    You couldn't do it.
    Cell phone pictures from the rear of the vehicle especially, don't ID the driver just the vehicle.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    I have some neighbors I'd be sorely tempted to do that with, too.

    That probably wouldn't be a ticket for anything in this situation with the possible exception of reckless driving... can't prove DWI with it...

    In Taiwan, many people have video cameras in their cars...
