Car Video Surveillance and Protection
Most everyone’s seen the footage from police cars of a traffic stop and, in some cases, a traffic accident. Nothing is more persuasive in a court of law than videotaped evidence. In the past, the participants in a car accident would have to rely on eyewitness testimony. If two people gave differing accounts of an accident, this could negate the testimony, even if it is 100% true.
People in the accident are also called to give their testimony to insurance agents and/or attorneys. In many cases it can be one person’s word against another. Again, even if you’re telling the truth – if the other driver has a different story about the cause of the accident, this could cause an insurance settlement to be split between two parties, rather than working entirely in your favor, which would be the fair outcome.
These complicated scenarios are why dashboard or glass-mounted video cameras are so important. If you are frequent driver – if you make deliveries or have to commute a long way to work – you have an increased risk of getting into an accident. Even if you drive ten minutes to and from work everyday, the unthinkable can happen, no matter how safe a driver you might be. For a very small sum relative to the amount of money you may have to pay after an accident, a dash mounted camera can provide the irrefutable proof you’ll need to show just who was at fault in the event of a car accident.
