    Frankly I have to say I'm surprised at the response to this question and I don't agree with the arguements above.

    Constable, I didn't do it honest.

    Clearly you've never been to court and seen what expensive/clever lawyers can achieve...
    When someone claims you did something wrong and you point to your discrete dashcam, they dont hang around for the police, they leg it so it will never see a court room

    Re: Dashcams

    I replied yes to the thread, useful to prove in an accident who was at fault and if the dash cam could be fitted to work alongside a black box even better. Visual data from the cam and telemetry from the black box.
    If you've been smoking something you shouldn't and you see something that walks like a duck, sounds like a duck and looks like a duck, then it's probably a dog or a bag of peas.

    I have one, and when someone rear ended me a year or so ago I just pointed it out to him, he sort of gave a disappointed grunt and just acknowledge he was at fault.
    I was never in doubt about the outcome regards the insurance at any stage.

    As for the big brother nonsense? I don't get it. The dashcam is owned by me, and so are the contents of the sd card. If I don't want anyone to see it then they won't. Simple as that!

    Dash cam. Points forwards. Records stuff out the front window. Could buy another one, pointing out the rear window.
    Most of the idiots trying to kill me do it from the side. Not on camera.

    I think 8 cameras should cover it.

    Do you think your dashcam will help with a claim against one of the ever increasing number of uninsured drivers?

    If they become standard fit, it's only a very short matter of time that you own "defence" will be used against you.
    Interesting comments. Seems that you are happy to have one prove you were NOT at fault with the Range Rover but you don't want one to prove that you COULD be at fault the next time?

    Not totally like that.
    As they are voluntary, they can only be used for your defence.
    If they became standard fit it wouldn’t be long before insurance companies would be wanting to use your recordings possibly against you.
    You might also note I voted for them.
    Forever trying.
