This morning in bed I was going through a scenario in my head where I had
been involved in a RTA with a motor vehicle. I realised that I do not
carry a pen and paper with me to exchange details etc and knew I had no
hope of remembering anything after years of abusing my old brain with
beer ;-)

I do however carry a minidisc player and have used it in the past to
record sounds through its mic in socket. I believe i-pods and some other
mp3 players have microphone input sockets.

Ah but wouldn't you have to carry a microphone around with you? Well no -
a loudspeaker is a microphone in reverse, so I plugged in the earpieces
into the mic-in socket and then recited my car reg number into it.

The signal strength bar moved as I spoke and listening to the recording I
could make out every word. Then I realised that most people have cameras
on their mobile phones ( I don't have a phone) and could photograph the
details, so it wasn't such a good idea after all. :-/
You can't photograph something someone tells you, so perhaps the dictation
machine idea still has legs. Mind you, modern phones also have the
sound-recorder facility built in.

I will add a pen an small notebook to my cycling mini bag to go along with
the emergency tool kit & spare tube.

Everyone should always carry a pen or pencil anyway.

They should, it would be useful to take down the cyclist's number.
