Having a dash cam can mean the difference between a small fender bender that wasn’t your fault costing you nothing and costing you thousands. How? If the other driver is dishonest and doesn’t fess up once the police arrive, your insurance might have to cover the cost of repairs. And of course, that means your premium is going to skyrocket since insurance companies have an open license to rip us off all they want. It stinks, but that’s how the system works.
