I think you missed my point. You're correct, I haven't visited the UK and don't care to for a list of reasons. I have visited 14 other European countries though, including one that doesn't allow dash cams apparently. Yet has high tech, government controlled cameras everywhere .Apparently you've never visited the UK. They've got Cameras everywhere including but not limited to license plate reader cameras and speed cameras.
Love or hate, that's the world in 2021. No matter where you go these days, people are filming with their smart phones. You've got store security cameras recording you. There's facial recognition software. Privacy is dead, so don't sell yourself on a false illusion. You can pretty much google anyone to find out about them, look up their "happenings on social media", etc.
That's my point. When a government prohibits you from recording in a public place (on the roads, for example), yet the government has cameras everywhere in those public places, then it's suspiciously similar to a police state.
