    Bicycle/Car Close Call On My Corner Today

    The teenage driver of the car almost had to go on the sidewalk to miss the bicyclist who clearly had the right of way. The bicycle was 1/2 way into the intersection. This is my 4K PTZ camera with the 4/3" sensor. Interesting to see if indeed this video is in HD from Youtube.

    I just purchased a Dahua IPC-B5442E-Z4E for a license plate camera. It replaced the 5231 that I was previously using. I have to say that I can see a nice difference even in black and white.
