Car Accident Prevention with Cameras and Monitors

Car Accident Prevention With Dashboard Cameras & Monitors

Car dashboard cameras can play a key role in gathering evidence after an accident and help to prevent crashes, Car Accident Prevention experts say.

 

In some cases, even reduced insurance premiums are offered to motorists using dashboard cameras due to the more efficient handling of accident cases and claims

 

Occasionally I have had to report dangerous drivers to the police and the use of dashcams can be a very important tool for recording incidents on the road.  Personally I think the police should have a place where drivers can upload dashcam footage of dangerous driving.

They are available in various models and cost range.

Dash Cams as Car Spyware

We are in an age now where everyone wants to SEE what happened rather than be TOLD what happened!  Cameras are EVERYWHERE, on cell phones, drones, homes, elevators, businesses, churches, in some cities at the intersections and many Police Officers have body cams on their uniform shirts.

Dashboard-mounted cameras might seem to be an obvious way to improve the safety of our roads, particularly because they record continuously when the car is in motion without requiring any action that might distract the driver and because they can capture the build-up to an incident as well as the incident itself.

car dash cam recording front

Despite this, the use of dashcams remains lower than you might think, in part because of public perceptions about the legality of Car Dash Cams as car spyware, after several drivers were successfully prosecuted for posting on social media examples of bad driving, road rage and inconsiderate parking.

But the law does not distinguish between dashcams or any other form of camera. As Jeremy Pinnington, co-founder of Open-Eye Security Systems and Installation says, “What you do with the footage is where the legality comes into it.” The law is geared around privacy, which is why videos taken in public areas require the written permission of those depicted if they are to be broadcast.

The simple answer is that they have never not been legal. It’s a camera, same as your phone or what you buy from stores,” he said.

Car Dash Cams For Security

Car Security Stickers

 

Dashboard cameras are able to aid Law Enforcement Officers with actual footage of what actually happened prior to, during and even after an event. Dashboard cameras have been able to capture natural disasters like tornadoes, hail, lightning strikes and hurricane force winds….  

I don’t think a dashboard camera can be a bad thing, because it doesn’t require the driver to do anything that would distract them while driving.  They just have to turn it on and start recording at the beginning of their journey.

Some insurers offer lower premiums for drivers who have Dash Cams because they can provide a definitive version of how a collision occurred, or even a theft from the vehicle, saving costly and uncertain litigation to determine what actually happened.

Dash Cams don’t just record video while you are driving.  If you have one powered by a battery, you can also record what happens around your vehicle when it is parked.  Another way to use Car Dash Cams For Security.

Best Dash Cams

Car Dashboard Cameras

A lot of folks are shopping for car dashboard cameras, or dash cams as they are known, so that they can have proof of events as they happen while out driving.

Without a dash cam, how are you going to prove that what you, as the driver, are saying, is the truth?

Dash cams can offer proof of events in road accidents in several ways, such as for instance:

  • Dash cams record the Where (through GPS) the When (time and date are clearly displayed) and therefore the How.
  • Most dash cams have night vision. This prevents fraudulent claims being made against the driver even after they have been driving in the dark.
  • Dash cams typically take prime quality footage, that can be uploaded and saved to a computer, laptop or other device if and when required for insurance or legal purposes.

Car Dash Cam info

In car camera systems with DVR are usually 720P or 1080P and HD (high definition). With a Digital video recorder for your car or any other vehicle, you can capture whatever you can see around you while you are driving. And with such a gadget you’ll never have to look for witnesses if you ever get into an accident — the record will show what really happened!  Car camera video recorders have become so popular, that drivers from all around the world buy them every day. They have seen all the benefits and don’t need convincing.

Most modern car cameras are mounted on your dashboard, windshield, or can be hidden, and can record 360 degrees around your vehicle. There is also an option on many of these DVR cameras for night vision recording and GPS tracking and locating. There are several benefits and advantages to installing an in car video recorder.  You can record whatever you see and upload it online or You Tube if you like.  Car video recorders will let you save all those moments and do as you please with them when they are uploaded at home. If you are vacationing, digital video recorders on your dashboard make an excellent electronic video memory picture album of your trip   But these videos can also be used as evidence in any legal matters concerning accidents or crimes committed, because they record live.

Best Dash CamsDecide which price range you want to pay for your Dashboard Camera or Backup Camera kit. You can get some priced as low as $50, but remember, you get what you pay for. The average price in 2016 for a decent WIRELESS rear view camera and LCD monitor was $100-$250. Most decent backup camera kits come with a wireless monitor included. This is a great feature because it means that you don’t have to buy an additional piece of hardware to use the rear view camera. If you want to do more work and run all of the power and transmit wires, then a cheaper model can be purchased, but most people choose a wireless backup system, especially for larger vehicles and trailers.

One feature that you want to get is a wide view angle camera that is over 100 degrees, which would cover pretty much the entire blind spot area to the back of your vehicle. Do not get a 30-40 degree camera if you can afford a better one, you can easily see more than 40 degrees view with your own eyes, through standard vehicle rear view mirrors. Thirdly, get a good display. LCD monitors are the best and should be included in any decent camera setup kit.

Another important feature to look for is whether the camera kit is waterproof and weatherproof. Being installed on the rear bumper of a car or a boat, even near salt water, is not considered normal usage for most dash cams and so you need to get the right one for your requirements.

Dash Camera

I love mine! I Wish they had dash cams when I was a taxi driver in London, because they would have saved me a lot of grief. I’d definitely have gone for an extra one inside as well, pointing towards the passengers for added safety.

If you are looking for the best dashboard cameras or rear view back up cameras to install on the dashboard or the rear of your car, we have several choices you can review.

Dashboard cameras come in a bewildering array of unheard of makes and models. We regularly update a list of the top 10 best dash cams, to help you choose one that is perfect for you.

Mini Waterproof Sports Video Recorder Camera

Sports Cameras

Sports Cameras come in all shapes and sizes and different designs depending on whether you are driving, cycling, diving under water or racing.

Car Dash Cam info

Many sports enthusiasts use helmet cameras to capture the essence of the sports they love. For example, many para glider pilots carry a bullet camera to record their flights. This can be mounted on the helmet, foot or elsewhere to capture unique camera angles. There are many samples of helmet camera videos available on the net.

Wearing helmet cameras is also proving popular with cyclists as a safety aid, as it allows cyclists to record their journeys and to record any incidents from their point of view. This recording can be used in a court as evidence.

But in 2006, a British cyclist was convicted of abusing traffic wardens, also using evidence from a helmet camera.

Firefighters have begun to utilize helmet cams as a tool to assess their responses to fires and to allow non-firefighters to see the reality of what occurs inside a burning building. One technological improvement that fire departments would employ would be thermal imaging detection of differences in heat.   Mini Waterproof Sports Video Recorder Camera

Helmet cameras generally fall into two main categories; CMOS and CCD types. Although helmet cameras take on a variety of forms the majority are small cylindrical cameras resembling a tube of lipstick or a bullet, coining the name lipstick or bullet cameras. Helmet cameras may be connected to a video recording device with video input capability, such as a handheld camcorder, or purpose built digital video recorder.
