There are many reasons why drivers are still reluctant to invest in a dashcam. Some of the most common ones extend from the initial costs as well as the question of privacy. Others feel that a dashcam ruins the aesthetics of owning a car – especially a luxury car. There are also drivers who feel that owning a dashcam is equivalent to shooting yourself in the leg as the footage recorded can also be used against you in the event that you’re liable for an accident. Regardless of what the reason may be, owning a dashcam isn’t compulsory but more often than not, the footage recorded has helped save money as well as reducing liabilities of drivers in road accidents.

Let’s take a look at 5 instances caught on video with the help of a dashcam:

Heaven Sent

Imagine having to explain the following video to your insurance company or to anyone for that matter. Even with the video footage, it still baffles us how a full 2-seater sofa was carried with the wind before crashing down on the road, missing the car just by seconds.

Without video evidence from the dashcam, it would be almost impossible to substantiate a claim given how unlikely this encounter happened.

Invisible Car

If you thought the last video was baffling, wait till you see this. Personally, I’ve watched this video multiple times and yet I’m unable to comprehend how this accident happened!

We certainly hope the driver involved has a better video quality dashcam to capture their point of view to ascertain the cause of the accident with more clarity.

Intentional Accident Scam

I’m pretty sure everyone has seen a recording either locally or overseas of people intentionally running towards an oncoming vehicle to fake an accident. In cases where a pedestrian is hit by an oncoming vehicle, without sufficient evidence, the driver may be held liable to compensate the pedestrian.

There has been an increase in such cases worldwide and albeit more of such cases are brought to light, there are a handful that’s still unrecorded.

Maserati Misery

In the following video, thanks to the dashcam, it is clear to ascertain that the one who’s liable for the accident is the Maserati. The video caught the white Maserati as it swerved into the lane of the oncoming vehicle and abruptly braked.

If it weren’t for the dashcam, the driver of the Maserati can easily pin the blame on the rear driver for speeding or for not keeping a safe distance between their vehicles. This video is proof that no matter how safe a driver you are, there are bound to be potential accidents due to other reckless drivers.

Eerie Encounter

Besides shocking and gnarly accident footages, our dashcam occasionally capture the weird, and in this case – eerie. The video went viral after it was posted on social media, piquing the interest of the public. Here’s the clip to lighten to mood a little after viewing the past footages:

According to another article, they have apparently studied the footage and came to a conclusion that it was a girl on a unicycle attempting to cycle on the road divider. I do not know about you, but the initial observation of the strange lady being a ghost seems more believable. Guess there’s more to just safety and evidence when it comes to owning a dashcam!

After watching these, think about how or what it would be like if you were the person directly implicated in the footage, but without a dashcam. The liability of these accidents could potentially fall on the wrong driver while the one at fault goes off with a minimal punishment or even unpunished! It is every driver’s responsibility to drive safely but some accidents are out of our control. You can never be too safe!

If you’re convinced now, great! However, before rushing to get your dashcam, here are a few short tips on what to look out for. Ensure that your dashcam covers both the front and rear of your vehicle. It is useful to also check if your dashcam is able to record in parking mode when your vehicle is stationary. This parking mode helps ensure that any damage, theft or accident to your vehicle while it is parked will still be captured. Some dashcam also comes with additional safety features that assist drivers when it comes to changing lanes or to warn them in the event of a potential collision.

Let’s View dashcam comes with an Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) that helps warn drivers departing from a lane at a high speed, alert drivers on potential collision with a vehicle in front as well as an alarm that notifies the driver when a stationary vehicle is moving off. It also comes with an all-in-one discount package with parking mode and installation – without any hidden or extra costs!
