I don't know if I've ever witnessed anything worthy of videoing.

I have a go pro... thought about putting it in my dash, but there would be hours of nothing to watch.

Yes, yes.

High end 1080p dash cams with motion sensing, GPS, g-force meters, and video overlapping are around $200. Why everybody doesn't have a dash cam is beyond me. Seems like a great investment that can save your ass for $200.

Actually yes. Have you?

For the record, do you think a dash cam on my motorhome would not have captured the incident?

I would like to get one. There has been several instances where I wish I had one.

I got “T-boned” a while back, and the guy said I didn’t stop at the 4-way.

A cop pulled me over because he didn’t think I used my turn signal.

I’ve been run off the road a few times also.

No, but I am required to have those things by the rules of my mortgage lender, and the laws to drive my vehicle. Neither has recently saved my ass.

Everyday I use one, and yes it has caught some interesting stuff to say the least...with that being said, people in Russia use them due the massive amount of lawsuits...you think Mercia is bad about sueing, you should see the crap over there

I struggle answering questions that are worded like that.

$200 is the cost of a nice dinner and some drinks, Once they are wired and behind your mirror, you will forget it's there. it's a great addition to your insurance policy.

This is my idea also...you had yours wired in? I want something that is out of the way but also not permanent as It will be a company car.
