...and a dashboard "Bridge" switch so I can comply in the no camera zones. 

What are these 'no camera zones' of which you speak?  :o

Many no camera zones in NYC. Bridges and tunnels and such.

No camera zones probably don't apply to moving cameras. In this endless war on terror the authorities do not want you out on foot photographing bridges and other infrastructure. They see it as intelligence gathering.
If you don't have time to do it right, when do you have time to do it over.                                                                17" wheels, Nissin 4 piston calipers.1kg Sonic Springs.Cartridge Fork Emulators. KB Brace. Galfer brake lines  Free power mod.

They don't want to make it easy for a remotely located terrorist to use internet (or any) photos to plan an attack.  Just like there were "No Camera" signs on the fence around the Naval Weapons Test Center (AKA Grumman Airport) back in the days of F-14 production.  OK for Hollywood, not ok for you & me.
The dang "No Camera" signs are really small, too, I often miss them even when I'm looking for them, and sometimes I just plain forget.
When I think what it takes to start the Go-Pro with the phone app, going over a "No Camera" bridge is problematic and likely why NYC and Long Island rides always seem to have a meet-up close on the other side.
