As you know, police cruisers have been equipped with dash cams for many years now.
And truth be told, these awesome devices have helped countless officers prove that the actions they took during traffic stops were legal and proper.
But did you know a dash cam could also help protect you if you ever get pulled over for a traffic violation or other offense that you didn’t commit?
Well, it’s true!
These handy dash cameras are now widely available to the general public, and they are surprisingly affordable.
In fact, quality dash cams start at less than $50 on Amazon!
A good dash cam will record virtually everything that you can see from your windshield, and some models will even record the action that’s taking place behind you along with the audio.
If, as they say, “a picture is worth a thousand words”, then video is surely worth a million.
In many jurisdictions the video and audio recorded by a dash cam during a traffic stop or automobile accident can be used as evidence in court to either help prove your innocence or another party’s guilt.
And sometimes simply having the dash cam can help you avoid getting a ticket you don’t deserve in the first place.
This short video shows exactly how one innocent driver’s dash cam helped him avoid having to go to court for a false “speeding” charge. Check it out!
As this video proves, having a dash cam constantly recording what’s going on while you’re driving can help you feel a lot better the next time you see blue lights flashing in your rear view mirror.
Bottom line: Installing a dash cam in your vehicle is a great way to protect yourself if you get pulled over by the police or someone tries to pin the blame for an accident caused by someone else on you.
