Maybe if it was criminal the officer would introduce what you said, but for traffic court, HIGHLY UNLIKELY. I get pulled over probably once every 2-3 months, and I always remember what happened at the incident because it's significant. It's not something that happens everyday. I can't remember what car cut me off this morning, because that happens frequently, and isn't significant. If the car cut me off, and proceeded to brake check me, causing me to rear end it, then I would remember it, because it is SIGNIFICANT. In order to not be able to recall, you'd have to be 80+, and I'm pretty sure some people that old can recall what happened too.

Kind of the same about people talking to the police. If you're doing nothing wrong then they have nothing to worry about.

If I walked up to a car and had a cell phone shoved in my face then that would set the tone for the interaction. I'd be professional as I always was but there'd be no breaks given. Bit like being met with the old I reserve my right not to talk to you, or the window cracked only 2 inches. You want to be a dick, fine but don't go whining when I do my job to the fullest amount possible. Treat me with some courtesy and you're probably going to get a please slow down and have a good day.

Plus bear in mind that if you record something that results in a charge you risk having your phone seized as evidence.

That's nice, but that's not what he said. A dashcam is not a cellphone and it's not being shoved in your face. The amount of cars that will have them will continue to expand and it's not long before you see them built into cars as a standard feature.

The technology that is creating this cheap miniature audio and video recording technology will continue to explode. That means that you can be recorded at any time in a public place with or without your knowledge. The smart ones in the police are those who will just assume they are being recorded and will act professionally.
