If you're going to record your commutes as a means of legal protection/evidence, be certain you stick rigidly to ALL traffic laws, to include the speed limit.
Most people who record their commutes for this purpose delete each day where nothing significant happens.
It's what I would do...what's the point of having thousands of hours of video lying around that is all boring commuting?
That said, if something noteworthy DID happen in a video, you had better hope you weren't being an ass 15 minutes prior doing something stupid because it will look really suspicious if you edit the video to only include the part you need
