Kelly (Miss 14) and I were driving home yesterday, singing out loud and out of key to our favourite songs, laughing and generally being silly; when I noticed that the guy in the car beside us had a camera mounted to his rear view mirror. And he angled it towards us.
At what point as a society do we step up to the plate and say no, this isn’t right. You don’t have the right to film me. What is he planning on doing with his film? Are we going to be humiliated on the internet simply because we were having a great time singing and laughing together.
Will our moment of mother-daughter fun be turned into a meme to be shared on Facebook for all to laugh at? Will it turn up on everybody’s favourite trash TV channel labelled ‘Funniest Middle Aged Drivers’?
It’s time for the law to catch up with the tech. It’s time society said no.
