    Dashcams

    Should all new cars be fitted with dashcams as standard?

    If you think no, why not?

    As long as the cam has local storage and isn't broadcast then I don't see why not....

    Re: Dashcams

    My question would be... Why should they be fitted?

    If it's for big brother purposes... Then, no thank you...

    I think indicators are a bigger priority.

    Re: Dashcams

    I would like them to be integrated, say, into the rear view mirror so they are unobtrusive.
    There's already too much crap on people's windscreens with another stick-on......
    Also, as I change my car frequently, it's a pain having a dashcam uninstalled then reinstalled in the new car so wires aren't dangling all over the place.
    Just remember, they can be used to prove that you've been a pillock just as well as the other guy.....
    Can't see it becoming law but I can see it being fitted to new cars.

    The evidence they provide is invaluable .......

    If someone hits you, you can prove it.
    If you see a hit and run you can prove it.
    If there is a crash on a road and several have filmed it, there's no need to close the road for days.
    If someone jumps on your bonnet and claims, you can prove it.
    If you were doing the speed limit, you can prove it.

    You insert a memory card into a slot in the camera and that card holds all the footage. There's no big brother involved at all.

    You wouldn't have to if all cars had them, you'd just swap the memory card

    Wouldn't that improve peoples driving?

    Exactly!

    Short term - possibly.
    The vast majority of bad driving results in near-misses at worst.
    Unless a law is broken it's not going to stop people driving like idiots.
    And would the Police be able to cope with the vast increase in work as a result..?

    As the cam records their speed would that not encourage them to drive slower?
