Dashcams, Dashboard Cameras For Insurance Purposes for Sale. Dash cams for Drivers Protection

Updated on October 9, 2013

What is a dashboard camera ?

Dash-cams ( dashboard cameras ) are small video cameras installed in the front of a car or other vehicles.

The dashcam continuously records everything that is happening on the road and sidewalk in front of the car.

Why have one ?

A dashcam can record accidents and verify as to whose fault the accident was. This helps prevent fraudulent lawsuits against innocent drivers.

The video is admissible in a court of law and has helped insurance companies in their battle against cash-for-cash claims.

Using a dashboard camera may also reduce the cost of insurance premiums.

Night Vision.

Most dash cams have night vision. This prevents fraudulent claims being made against the driver even in the twilight hours.

The Q7 car DVR Camera is equipped with night vision technology and has a 2" TFT screen.

With a 140 degree wide angle viewing option to catch as much of the vehicle on camera as possible. 5 million pixel resolution ensures clear footage at all times.

Photograph format is JPG for ease of printing. An inbuilt speaker and microphone allows for conversations to be recorded following an accident or incident.

Supplied with an in-car charger, and a storage card slot capable of taking a 32gb TF card.

Why use a Dashboard Camera ?

Accidents happen every day, by the millions. It is estimated that $150 (at least) of every insurance policy is the cost of insurance fraud.

Fraudulent claims cost innocent victims more money, even years after the incident.

Rising costs and loss of no-claims bonus ensure higher insurance premiums.

Pedestrian Fraud

Pedestrians are usually kept to the side walks and pavements. But a growing number of fraudulent claims by pedestrians is costing innocent drivers millions every year.

Desperate for cash, many individuals simply throw themselves in front of a moving vehicle. Once the "accident" is over, massive claims for personal injury follow.

Without the dashboard camera, this motorist could have been sued for severe personal injuries.

Dash Cam Usage

Russia has the most dashboard cameras per capita. Law courts in Russia prefer video evidence as opposed to witnesses.

This is supposedly because of police corruption and widespread insurance fraud.

The dashcam allows old footage on the memory card to be recorded over with new footage rather than stopping recording.
