It's no joke being ripped off by a fraudster.
Many a time have I seen accidents on the roads and people arguing by the side of the wreckage about whos fault it was - well I say many a time - but I have seen it quite a few times over the years. More than 5 times put it that way.
Have you ever wondered just how hard it actually is to be in dispute over a road traffic accident? Well have a think about it. There are rules and regulations governing how we should drive a vehicle. These aren't made up for the fun of it - and neither are they invented to keep politicians happy. No - infact they are for our safety and the safety of pedestrians.
But as an aside - if all drivers followed these rules, then there would be no need for disputes. What you will most often find is that one of the drivers involved has been an idiot, and the other is completely innocent. The idiot will also be the same type of person who would like to cause an argument - as once an idiot - always an idiot. Put it this way, the idiot driver is also likely to be an obstinate freakshow who likes to get his or her own way, thats why they caused the incident in the first place - bullish behaviour at the expense of everyone else. So as you can imagine - there is no reason to suspect they would behave any differently during the aftermath of the accident they caused.
Getting a dash cam can help overcome these idiots and I have just read a great article on this subject here. I'm not one for writing such polite articles - but by reading that you will see that not only can you trounse the thugs - you are also going to be saving yourself hard cold cash on your insurance simply by having one fitted.
So whilst they certainly act to put the fraudsters in their place - there are savings to be made aswell. It makes sense all round to me to have one installed.
I have recently managed to get an old car of mine back on the road after being a bit strapped for cash. The very first thing I did was install two cameras - one front - one back, so I am covered for most events now. There are too many fools on the highways these days to take the risk of not having cams, and as you can see, with cameras paying for themselves it really is a no brainer to get them installed.
You may just want to start off with one as the costs up front can be prohibitive for some people, but once that is paid for on insurance discounts then you can always look into getting another. A rear camera I find - is ideal for the motorway network, as tailgaters most often offend at high speed on long straight stretches of road.
Think about it - you can't go wrong if you get a dash cam!!
