Summary

Yep. GoPro cameras have about 170º angles of view when set up in usual mode. So your typical action camera footage looks quite exciting as a rider passes between vehicles. But I can almost guarantee that some of this footage is showing him passing between vehicles with less than the 3-Feet margin he wishes them to use. Cyclists can be quite hypocritical in this regard. But take a look a the kinds of risks he is taking and then keep in mind that this is all being done on a fixed gear bike the might well (if he is a purist) no brakes!

And we wonder why motorists and police are not more respectful of us. We make the proverbial squirrel and chipmunks look like nervous biddies.
