The Benefits Of a Dash Cam In Your Vehicle

Almost every new car has one, and the numbers have been growing in popularity over the past number of years, all across Australia. I am, of course, talking about a dash cam, or dashboard camera, and drivers have been installing them in their vehicles, to help protect themselves in the event of an accident, or theft. They are incredibly popular, because they are very straightforward to install, and they can be attached to your dashboard, or your windscreen, and once you install an SD card, then the camera will record everything that it sees. There are different types of cameras to choose from, like forward facing cameras, and cameras that can record what is in front of you, and what is behind you, as well. They can also record sound, and so they are used by driving instructors, taxis, bus drivers, and police officers.

The family car is kitted out with one of these excellent cameras, and it helps keep the whole family safe, when they are travelling together.

Evidence in case of an accident – If you don’t have one of these cameras installed and you do have an accident, it’s a case of he said, she said, and in many cases without witnesses, it can be hard for the police to figure out who was at fault. With this camera installed, there is absolutely no ambiguity, and everything has been recorded for playback later.

  • It encourages driver discipline – Because other drivers know that you have a dash cam installed in your vehicle, then it forces them to be more courteous, and to drive with the expected due care and attention. If you are unfortunate enough to have a bad experience with a rude and aggressive driver, then it will all be recorded on your dash camera. You can then report the driver to the police, who cannot deny that the incident occurred, because it has been recorded. Having a recording is the ultimate proof that an incident has occurred, and that a warning or a fine is warranted.
  • It provides peace of mind – Parents worry when their young teenagers borrow the car for the afternoon. Having a dash camera installed in the car, that starts recording immediately after the engine is started, is a fantastic way to provide peace of mind to worried parents. As long as the camera is installed and used, in accordance with government guidelines, it is a sound investment.

Installing a dash cam in your vehicle, is probably one of the smartest things that you can do, to protect yourself and the people who travel with you. You can’t put a price on safety, and essential peace of mind.
