I pray I never reach that level of paranoia.
In most places it's legal to record, photograph, or videotape any interaction in a public place. But a few states and municipalities prohibit the practice if it involves a police officer - despite the obvious infringement on our First Amendment rights. Even so, it's not unusual for a cop to forbid audio or video recording regardless of the law. They have a tendency to simply make things up, and having a recording of an encounter with such an officer is an excellent defense for any cyclist. Go read Carlos Miller on Pixiq for many more examples. And Steve, if you don't exercise your rights, do you still have them?
Ed, I'll take the risk of an accidental fall down the stairs of the jail,if it comes to that. I exercise my rights to the fair use of the road daily.One does not need covert recordings to defend one's rights.http://dfwptp.blogspot.com/search?q=Colleyville+police
