Why Buy a Dashcam?

Dashcams, or dashboard cameras have become increasingly popular in the last few years as an easy way to record what happens on your journey. This footage can be used for a variety of purposes.

In the event of an accident

The main reason why dashcams are so popular is that they provide evidence in case of an accident. A dash cam acts as an independent, trusted witness in the event of any incident or argument over who is to blame. They provide peace of mind and may save you a lot of trouble and money in the long run, capturing every detail of what has taken place.
Many modern dashcams include GPS to record driving speed and the route you have taken, and this can be useful information too.

Insurance fraud

Some people cause accidents just to put the blame on the other party in an effort to obtain money from the victim, and/or payment relating to injuries sustained from their insurers. If you have a dashcam to prove you aren’t to blame it will make proving this much easier.

For the record

Capture the unexpected

Sometimes unusual things happen unexpectedly and having a dashcam will ensure you don’t miss them! Remember the driver’s dashcam recording of the meteor that flew over Russia that was seen by millions of people on YouTube? You never know what you might miss without one!
