    The crash avoidance electronics, ironically.

      This might be the first step.
      Maybe when the liability of just walking around approaches that of driving in a car. Until then, I think this is specious reasoning.

        Yes, got to love it. Creative editing for the win!

          I have a front/rear Blackvue 750 for the last two years. Had it professionally installed at a car audio shop. Still working and I let it run 6 hours in parking mode.

          Never know when you will be in an accident and need video to keep people honest.

            Everyone should have a dashcam. We have many reckless drivers in south Fl where I live. The footage from mine and my gf's dashcam has been beneficial in many situations. She was involved in a crash where the other driver merged into her turn lane illegally and the other driver tried to put the blame on her in front of the police officer. We later emailed the footage to the officer who amended the police report stating the other car was at fault. My car was hit while a valet driver was inside the car and the incident was recorded. We had another incident where a valet driver stole items out of my center console. The video faced outward however audio was captured with the sound of the center console opening/closing with the valet driver in the car unnecessarily for about 2 mins after he parked. Needless to say I don't valet park anymore.

            I own the Aukey DR-02 D dual dashcam. Just installed the rear cam this weekend!
            I highly recommend either this cam or the single forward facing DR-02. Install is straightforward and it makes a great gift!

              So many scummy people in Miami. I hated living there for fellowship. Not sure if you’re in MIA but it sure sounds like it. Glad the dash cam helped!

                My brother in law experienced a freeway accident where the car to his front right blew a tire. The car then veered left into his driving lane. My BIL then reflexively veered right to avoid hitting the car in which he was then side swiped from his right rear. He sent the video to his insurance. They cut him a check for a total replacement in under a week.

                  Get one! It is beneficial considering all of the situations we encounter with driving.

                    Anyone catch anything cool on their dashcam over the last few years?

                        If you live and park your vehicle someplace with extreme temperatures be sure to look into cams with capacitors not batteries, the time before failure is much longer.

                          I wished i had had one a couple of days ago when a beautiful red-tailed hawk streaked across in front of my windshield going for something in the median. I agree that the best dashcam footage is indeed from Russia. So many incredible accidents - many 'near-misses' are wild. Best of all was the meteor that fell there in 2013 - link is to ABC News coverage. https://abcnews.go.com/WNT/video/met...jured-18516684
