Personal Dashcams: 21st Century's Best and Surest Way for Drivers to Protect Themselves
Today, drivers need more than an insurance company to be in good hands. We live in a litigious world, where it is often one's word against another's, and what seems obvious is often not what it appears to be. Being able to protect oneself from false or misleading accusations is every bit as important as carrying liability, collision, comprehensive, and other types of automotive insurance.
In the world of traffic accidents and tickets you're guilty until proven innocent. The best way for drivers to protect themselves and prove their side of the story is by using a personal dashcam that records events as they unfold.
The police officer said you ran a red light. Your dashcam video says otherwise. The other driver said he had his blinker on when you drove into the back of his car. Let's go to the video and see if he really did. The other driver said you threatened her. Your dashcam captured her storming out of her car, screaming at you, and making menacing motions. Dashcam videos and still images can show an entirely different – and factual – scenario than another driver's version of the story.
