You may have noticed that dash cams are becoming more and more popular in US. Until a short while ago, only police cars would have a dashboard camera installed. But then the unthinkable happened and a meteor struck a remote town somewhere in Siberia, Russia -- and to everyone's surprise, dozens of live videos of the event instantly popped up on YouTube!
Advanced version of the cameras can also record rear views; some are equipped with infra-red sensors to enable recordings in the dark too. The camera automatically switches on and begins recording as soon as the car engine starts. It saves all video data to a memory card. Some cameras are capable of recording in High Definition and deliver great video quality.
Is it a good idea to have such a device on board of a car? Yes, it is! The camera is your main witness and can "speak" for you should something happen. It can be an accident due to an unexpected situation from the car in front of you or a serious accident that is almost impossible to recognize or simply a situation that will require a detailed examination later. Whatever it is, a dash cam will be there for you to finding out the truth.
Don’t know how police sees the idea of dash cams in ordinary cars but police cars are equipped with this technology to record road situations. I would imagine they would embrace this technology as it would only facility their jobs.
The situation with insurers is a bit different. When I was talking to one insurance company asking if they recognize the evidence via a car cam in consideration in their claim assessment process, the reply was very general: "We welcome any additional information that would contribute to correct assessment of an accident and to handling of a claim. But we do not have any particular perspective on a dashboard camera usage in the cars though; it's quite new to us... "
According to me, you should make use of dash cam data in discussion with police or in the court to make sure that you are not considered to-be-at-fault. Not being considered at-fault after an accident could help prevent your insurance premiums from increasing. Also, a car dash cam can help to preserve a clean driving record.
Is there any future for a dashboard camera? Definitely! it can contribute to both the correct assessment of traffic accidents and to better driver behavior. You'll get a "faithful" witness who always be in your car and can prove your Innosense but the same observer will ensure that you are not making any mistakes since these will be recorded as well and the data could be used against you.
There are many car cams avail in the market with a high integrated features. But if you want a best services at a reasonable price then you must prefer Campark’s new dual dash backup camera.
