Just waiting for the police to get over zealous and start booking people for cameras and helmet mounted lights, or even great dangly cable ties as recommended by BNV for anti-magpie measures! "We're only booking you for your own protection"

"No attachments should be made to the helmet except those recommended by the helmet manufacturer."
This is true, but unless I hear of people actually getting booked for it then I'm not concerned. I have had blinkie lights attached to my helmet for years and have even been commended by police for being so visible.
