    Well you have video evidence and it verifies your statements and disproves hers. Reason why I got a dash cam.

    Dash cams have reduced the # of contested drunk driving charges drastically. Trying to find a rear recording unit now as I have had three serious rear collision accidents.

    You should make her phone number known so she is hassled like she hassled you and inconvenienced enough to have to get a new phone number. Off topic: This is the duel dash cam (forward and back) that I have. It's great. Both cameras pivot 180 degrees. One wide angle for front and one zoom out rear window. Split screen recording.

    Her phone number is (949) 903-2022
    Looks like she disconnected it, though...
    I am suprised someone 51 years old would do something so immature

    I'd have just grabbed her dog and traded it for the drone.

    Unfortunately, 16 minute videos aren't likely to go viral.

    i can see her as one of those people who would try to sue to make a quick buck and never have to work again. people like her are the reasons why we have WARNING HOT on coffee sold at McDonalds...

    almost wonder if we should put a sticker on the drone that says this device is recording and being logged to a remote server over cell services

    You handled it very well though. It's a great training film for how to deal with a situation like this. You were a good ambassador for the hobby. Thank you!
