Travelling can be seen as a major hassle in this day and age. Long gone are the days of neighbourhood watch and the notion of looking out for each other. Where people could leave their front doors unlocked and be carefree in the knowledge that they were safe.
Nowadays, it would be ‘asking for it’ if you left a few coins in your ashtray or your car door unlocked for a few minutes, everyone is in it for themselves.
Putting such disappointing changes in humanity aside, though; the key nowadays is to ensure safety and security wherever you go. If you’re away from home for a bit, you will set the house alarm, if you leave your car for a bit you will activate the alarm.
Pretty much in the same way, many people invest in CCTV cameras outside their homes, because not only do intruders seek opportunities while your away, they also try their luck whilst you’re still there!
So why should it be any different while you’re travelling?
It isn’t, which is where the benefits of a dash cam come in! Dash cameras have become a must have product recently due to its countless benefits.
If you are unsure as to whether you should invest in one or not, read some of the benefits below and decide for yourself…
If your vehicle has been involved in an accident and you are the innocent party, then the dash cam will have recorded this. In the long run, this could save you a massive amount of money in potential repair costs if the other party refuses liability.
It doesn’t just end there, though; it can also act as proof against reckless and inexperienced drivers on the road. The proof is in the pudding one might say!
If you own a business where you have a fleet of drivers or own a taxi company, then this is the perfect solution to finding out if your staff may be taking advantage behind your back. Many dash camera devices not only record in real time but can also record driving speed, location and so much more, making it easier for you to stay on top of things, and safe in the knowledge that you know exactly where your employees are and that they are doing what they are supposed to be doing.
Another great benefit is also for when you take your car to a garage or mechanic; ever wondered why the price is always sky high for the smallest part or job? Do mechanics always do what they’ve said they will? What better way to find out?
Taking the scenic route for a change? Enjoy travelling? Celebrating an occasion? Why not record your whole trip? Something to tell the grandchildren about one day, when there will probably be flying cars, and they wont believe you when you say you were actually driving on tarmac, watching the world go by…
Smile and Wave!
Ever wished you could go back and capture that ‘Kodak moment’? Well, thanks to the innovative technology of a new well-installed dash cam, you now can! Ensure you’ve got the details of the culprit who reversed into the back of your car, smashed your back lights and sped away without leaving their insurance details, or better yet, were they even insured? Aha!
These are just some of the many numerous benefits of investing in a dash cam. There are many other advantages to installing one in your vehicle for your peace of mind, and sometimes, someone else’s too!
