Car Scams and Security

Car Scams & Security

Not all car scams involve second-hand car salesmen. This video shows a recent example of a new car scam, a so-called ‘Crash For Cash’ attempt to claim compensation for being hit by a vehicle.  A suspected compensation hunter runs towards a taxi, hurls herself onto its bonnet and appears to play dead in the road.

Dash Camera footage shows the woman sprinting across a junction in Blackpool before she spots the oncoming vehicle and suddenly launches herself in its direction.

(Video: Universal Media Online)

The taxi, a Nissan ENV200, then reversed and the woman can be seen lying motionless on the ground, while another vehicle driving in the other direction just drove around to avoid her.

The Taxi’s driver Christopher Stewart said: “From what I can remember she didn’t really try and jump on it, she just dived straight at the car”.

He also claimed that the woman’s male companion then ran over and raged at him off camera, allegedly threatening to kill him.

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.

Installing A Wireless Rear View Car Back-Up Camera

Rear View Car Back-Up Camera Systems can be either cabled or wireless, depending on the model (The Camera not the car!).  The Wireless option can be very simple to install.


Installing a Wireless Monitor & Rear View Back-Up Camera System for your car


In the example video below we are installing a Back-Up Camera System, Model ACA250, which is a Wireless monitor and rear view camera system for backing up your car, but the same steps are commonly used for most Back-Up Camera Systems.

Installing a Wireless Colour Monitor & Back-Up Camera System


How to install a Wireless Backup Camera with monitor: 

Car Camera, Monitor and Power Source

1.   Take off your license plate at the back of your car.

2.   Remove the car’s Reverse Tail Light so as to access the backup lamp wires.

3.   Connect the camera’s power leads to the reverse light of your car to get the power – red wire for positive and black wire for negative.

4.   Connect the power cable leads running from the Reverse Light, or ‘tail light’ to your camera, via the trunk to behind  the License Plate.

5.   Put back the Tail light and the License Plate.

6.   Fix the camera’s bracket to the license plate where the bottom two screws are situated, using those screw holes to fix it in.

7.   Position the Monitor on the front dashboard of the car or wherever you decide to put it, making sure that it will not block your view while driving.

Car Cams & Home Security

What many people don’t realize is that many dash cams have motion detectors on them. This means that even when you’re not driving, the dash cam is keeping an eye on your car.

This is especially helpful if you park your car outside your home, rather than in a protected garage. But, even garaged cars can benefit from this extra protection. Evidence like this can be what ultimately puts a criminal behind bars.
