A way to protect yourself should the unexpected happen is to
purchase and install a dash cam. Dash cams document your driving and enable you
to record anything that happens on the road. This protects you against
fraudulent insurance claims, deters theft and can lower your car insurance
A dash cam is a small camera that can be mounted on both the
front and rear of your vehicle. This small camera should face the road and will
record the road when you are driving. Some advanced dash cams have the
capabilities to turn on when your car is knocked when in park. This gives you a
better chance of catching culprits who damage your car and don’t stay to let
you know what has happened.
Even though dash cams can be costly, they are worth it for
the protection they can give you. Here are the key benefits of owning and using
a dash cam:
Although it is a sad truth, fraudulent insurance claims
happen all over the country, and are becoming more popular with criminals. The
main reason people make fraudulent insurance claims is to get money out of the
other person through insurance.
Having a dash cam means you can prevent anyone from making a
fraudulent claim about you, as you’ll have direct proof of the incident.
Put simply, if someone is looking to steal a car, a dash cam
acts as a deterrent. A dash cam acts as a form of security for your car when it
is parked and left unattended. Some dash cams have a surveillance mode that
turns on even when the car hasn’t been turned on.
A potential thief would be less likely to take the risk of
stealing your vehicle if they saw a dash cam in the front or rear window.
If you’re a new driver, or even if you have a lot of experience behind the wheel, a dash cam can act as peace of mind for your loved-ones. Knowing that you have that back up should anything unexpected happen when you’re on the road offers you protection, should you need it, at any time.
Not only does recording your journeys ensure you have a record of everything that goes wrong, it also enables you to have a video of where you have driven your car and perhaps some amazing memories that you have created on the road.
