The Silicon Valley Bike Coalition recently invited CVE Founder, Craig Davis, to speak on the use of cyclists’ video evidence in bike safety. The topic was later changed to the role of video surveillance in bike safety, which was unfortunate because, as a staunch privacy advocate, CVE is fundamentally opposed to persistent surveillance.
Simply stated: cyclists’ video evidence is not surveillance.
In the video below, Craig begins by deconstructing and contrasting the elements of cyclist video evidence as completely distinct and separate from the elements of surveillance. He then shares how cyclists and communities can use cyclists’ video evidence to proactively change dangerous drivers’ behavior before collisions occur.
