    it's raining Micras

    Saw two more today. Red S/SV and a Caspian Sea SR, both headed westbound on the 401 near Cornwall, Ont.

    No pix; driving!

    Micra deluge

    Spotted the first one -- grey SV -- in my home town today! (No Nissan dealership here, so that's a milestone.)

    Again, driving, so no pic. I suck at getting pics.

    Darin, dash cams are pretty cheap at Canada Computers...as little as $35. I think you need one.

    In our culture obsessed with absurd excess, the Nissan Micra is my counterculture car of choice.

    Paul - do you have one (dash cam)?

    My last 3 reports have been from 3 different cars, so I'd have to move that cam around!

    Darin - I do. After being hit by a lady on the DVP a couple of years ago and getting blamed for the accident, I realized we cannot trust the police to make a fair and unbiased judgement. I had my day in court and won, but from that day on I've always had a dash cam. I went for a $60 Genius brand from Canada Computers with a 32GB SD card. Image quality looks like this:

    I use the same one in my tractor-trailer. Worth every penny. Because cops aren't accident investigators, but they can lay the blame...

    Actually, as crazy as it might seem. If you get an extra long cord, stick it to the back window, facing forward, the wide angle will reach out the sides a bit so if you get side swiped, your good.

    Good idea...and Darin, most are suction cup mounted, so easy to move from one car to another.

    Saw a red Micra SV yesterday, for the first time with Alberta plates. It looked great! No pics, as I was on the road and I don't have a dash cam.

    Saw a silver S or SV in the Hamilton/Stoney Creek area today. Third one I've seen in the wild now.
