Nowadays, using a dashboard camera is more than a luxury -- it's a necessity. It could capture almost everything that our naked eye can’t immediately notice. The dash cam recording could shed light on several situations the driver gets involved into or might witness.
1. Road rage
In 2017, New York was the No. 2 state for Instagram posts with #roadrage hashtag. If such incidents are recorded through dash cams, it would definitely help speed up the investigation.
2. Bad drivers/lawbreakers
Keeping the road safe for travelers and pedestrians also means getting rid of bad drivers and lawbreakers. If we have footage of how they act on the road, we can help report these lawbreakers.
3. Vehicular accidents/car collisions
Accidents happen, yes. But we can definitely still protect ourselves from further hassles of proving who’s right or wrong during these types of incidents by reviewing what has been caught by our camera.
4. Insurance fraud
It may sound weird, yet it often happens that someone is willing to bang themselves onto our vehicles to acquire money. Staging an “accident” is simple for some people and we should be prepared to present an evidence that we did nothing wrong.
5. Collecting memories
Aside from gathering pieces of evidence for the above-mentioned instances, our dash cam recordings could also help us collect memories of our travels. Going on a road trip for some is a cool way of traveling. Sometimes we are too much focused on the road safety and we often forget how to appreciate the scenery along the way. Wouldn’t that be one of the great reasons why we would want to record our trips?
Our first top four reasons, other than being able to document things that may be utilized as an evidence for legal matters, these would surely be able to save us a lot of time and money. You might also want to check out your state laws in using a dash cam.
