A quick search on YouTube can find countless examples of these bad motorist's actions that have been caught on dashboard cams all over the world. However this footage isn't just for sharing on social media sites among close friends. Now British cops have actually realised the prospective advantage of having countless new eyes on the road. In fact a push started by the Authorities has called for dashboard camera owners to send video footage to the them showing reckless driving.
In fact many of the leading UK insurance companies are wanting to decrease rates for motorists with dashboard cams. Leading insurance company SwiftCover have taken the step of cutting prices by 10 % for dash camera users. They think dashboard cameras make drivers "more careful on the road".
And with most dash cams recording audio too they can prove valuable in other circumstances such as verbally aggressive drivers. But let's not dwell entirely on the negatives, a dashboard camera can show to be a great device for other circumstances too.
However the crucial function of any dashboard cam is exactly what it can do for you as a driver. Well first up it's primary function is to tape-record mishaps. All of us understand how terrible a vehicle accident is, even ones where no one is badly harmed.
Obviously the dash camera can be there to tape-record the nicer aspects of driving too. Perhaps you want to show your good friends the lovely beautiful route you drove. To help with preparing the ideal picnic one fine sunny Sunday. Or maybe you were driving behind David Beckham's Bentley and you cannot wait to show to your mates.
