A few years ago I was in the car with a friend on the highway when a car in the left lane tried to cut across to make an exit, side-swiping us in the process. Everyone was thankfully okay, and the driver of the other car was incredibly apologetic while we waited for the police to arrive, but then he sang a completely different story and told the police that the accident was our fault. The cops couldn’t determine anything conclusively one way or the other, and my friend is still paying higher insurance premiums as a result. If he had a dash cam installed and running at the time, he would have been able to prove that the other driver was at fault in a matter of seconds.

Seriously, every car should have a dash camera installed. And now, thanks to a limited-time Amazon sale, you can enjoy discounted prices on three different top-rated dash cam models.
