Couldn't afford it at the time, have actually been finding drivers much more polite over the last couple of months. Maybe it's the weather...
yes - to be honest the "burning desire" for a helmet cam does come and go for me every 4-6 months and it is connected with close passes, verbal abuse from drivers, or other negative experience.
In reality, so far, things on the road for me have been fine - i.e. I've only crashed once* in 4 years. Based on that track record (no pun intended) things are going to continue to be fine... until they're not! I am definitely getting one this time. Might start with me recording my rides with my phone, and move on from there.
