“You’re wondering…perhaps…how it is that we’ve got so many great videos of that meteorite over Russia?”
Well actually, that is exactly what I was wondering while watching the Russian meteorite videos. I couldn’t figure out how everyone was able to drive so calmly while filming the meteor exploding overhead in the air.
Turns out there’s so much corruption over there in the courts and in law enforcement in particular that the only protect yourself against false charges or claims of liability is to have proof. Hence everybody has a dash-cam in their cars.
I can’t help thinking that dashboard cams will be all the rage here in the U.S., too. Not that I think the police and judges here compare with Russia. It just seems like where we are headed.
