    I've got one on the estate and got told yesterday don't be stupid and that I was illegal as it's against people's rights and them getting "filmed" without their right. I said that's bollox because if there's one in the front they're still getting "filmed" from behind and what's the difference.

    Is it me or are they right..

    A rear dashcam is not only legal in the UK but undoubtedly the best way to get real proper close-up video of Audis...

    a very simplified version is....if they and you are in public places then they can be recorded. How you use the images later is more strictly controlled. As an amateur photographer I get similar arguments quite often, along the lines that people didn't give permission to be in my photo. Perfectly legal.

    The US of A has strange rules on dash-cams - varying from state to state.

    The only European country to be wary of is Luxembourg where the law is a complete ass - along the lines of 'It's legal to own one, but illegal to use it.

    Most problems associated with dash-cams and people's so called 'rights' are usually what you then use the footage for.

    Posting on YouBook or FaceTube with titles such as 'Look as this idiot who cut me up.' can easily land one in trouble.

    As far as I'm concerned my cams (front and rear} are principally for submission to police or insurance to clarify my innocence. :whistle:
