NEW YORK (CBSNew York) — Another cyclist has been killed in New York City, the 19th so far this year. The car then crashes into a blue SUV that had the right of way, sending it spinning onto the sidewalk, not before hitting 52-year-old Jose Alzorriz, who had just pulled up to the corner. They were trying to move it a little bit so they could get that cyclist out from underneath,” Gifter said. Park Slope neighbors said Alzorriz was an avid cyclist.Witnesses said the man riding the-now mangled bicycle had no time to react when two vehicles collided at the intersection of Coney Island Avenue and Avenue L in Midwood, Brooklyn, on Sunday afternoon. “They were also rescuing the driver, the driver of the blue minivan. He looked very hurt.” Heartbreaking news from Brooklyn today. They were stunned to hear he was killed doing what he loved. The 18-year-old driver of the grey car was taken into custody, but no charges were immediately filed, police said. How many people gotta die until the city goes after speeders? Police said they are still investigating and are reviewing dash cam videos.So on a 6 day trip I would obviously need to download the footage and recharge the battery frequently.Both things done via the same USB lead which requires a laptop or similar device plus regular mains electricity access - something I was not prepared to countenance.
I also knew some cyclists were using cams' in the battle with other traffic and after a few close calls I'd decided to join them.
I have hit upon a nice piece of free software called MPEG Streamclip from Squared5 which allows speedy viewing of a file as well as trimming and saving the required section but have given up trying to edit sections together for the time being.
The mounts advertised for the cam' look impressive but not all come as standard.
