I’ve just viewed the downloaded CCTV file of my accident earlier this month. It’s absolutely amazing how much it shows! Seven cameras all recording simultaneously and in colour (I’d expected the pictures to be grainy black and white). When I used the direction indicator this was indicated on the screen by either a left or right arrow and as the brake was applied the word ‘BRAKE’ was up on the screen. The video very clearly shows the taxi pulling out of the side road and at the same moment ‘BRAKE’ flashes up on the screen and the forward view shows the bus swerving right. The side facing camera was directly facing the taxi when I came to a halt and you can see the taxi driver’s features! It then records his putting the taxi into reverse and ‘wriggling’ his way around the back of the bus in order to drive off.
