…or “How to make people slow down and drive at the national speed limit when they see you.”
I thought it would be an interesting experiment to video my journey from Warrington to Stockport, the plan being to eventually speed the footage up by 5x-10x and see whether I got something entertaining.
On my passenger seat, I had the camera tripod set up with the video camera mounted on top. I didn’t think people in other cars would take so much notice of it when I was driving along. As it was, evidently a fair few of them must have have thought I was driving an unmarked police car! I can’t offer any other excuse for all cars in all lanes for no reason slowing to below 70 mph on numerous occasions throughout the journey as I passed by. Why the police would drive an old Nissan Almera I don’t know.
The video in the end was a huge success, I just need to buy a firewire card to download the footage so I can process it. I think a loop of the M60 might be worth a try next…
