We’ve all seen videos of traffic incidents gone viral on social media – many of them were taken via a dashboard camera, or dash cam.
This type of camera is typically mounted on the car dashboard and is designed to record images and sounds while you are driving. Dash cams are fast-becoming not just an accessory but a must-have for every driver for the following reasons:
- It provides proof during accidents. Even if you’re a careful and cautious driver, you never know when accidents can happen. In the event of a car accident, your dash cam provides undisputable evidence. In some cases, having a video as proof of how things happened will lessen conflict between the involved parties. Some utilize videos to help in insurance claims as well.
- It records your whole trip. Going on a road trip? Keep a record of the scenery you pass throughout your journey with your dash cam. If you’re the creative type, you can edit it down to just the highlights that you can look back on over the years.
- It is a useful and convenient in-car gadget. Dash cams nowadays are so handy and easy to use. They can simply be installed on the dashboard or windshield of your car with a suction cup or double-sided adhesive. Plug it in via a charger and it’s good to go!
