Dashboard cameras, more commonly known as dash cams, can provide a wide range of benefits for drivers.
These digital video recorders sit on the dashboard or windshield of a vehicle, capturing what happens while driving. Several styles exist, including those that record behind and inside the car, while the car is parked, or after an event such as the driver swerving or braking suddenly.
Dash cams are commonly used in the trucking industry, where they provide trucking companies with insight into how safe their drivers are. If there’s a crash, the dash cam can provide an objective record to the trucking company and the police about what occurred, often reducing liability for the trucking company as a result of false claims.
Whether you drive a vehicle for work, commuting, or just day-to-day personal use, dash cams are becoming more accessible and beneficial. Consider how many times you’ve had close calls with drivers who were speeding or not paying attention. If there had been a crash, how would you have proved you weren’t at fault? That’s what a dash cam aims to do.
