That's the theory, although I hope I'm never in the position to have to test it...

People today have gotten to be very paranoid.

To each his own but if you have ever been in one of those "he said, she said", kinds of fender benders which many have, you will quickly be happy for the visual proof especially if it saves you a few hundred or more on insurance deductibles. Check this out as an example of why they can be so helpful

RAW: Craig Schneider's dashcam video - News - CBC Player

The story that went along with it was that it was an attempted shake down. The tune quickly changed when they discovered there was a dash cam. Suddenly it was "we don't need to involve the police" yada, yada, yada. For $250.00, it seems like an easy way to protect yourself from the mass of bad drivers out there or in cases like this where scam artists are at work. My wife commutes every day and she has one on the dash. It just goes in a loop, we don't review it but should the time come when there is an accident, she will have the visual evidence about what actually took place.

That kind of little stuff is called "no-fault"

"no fault" is code for "you all get to pay". That little stuff you refer to was an attempt to extort money out of a motorist who was just minding his own business. Without that camera, he would have been out money that he shouldn't have been. It is really just another form of insurance.

It's an individual choice. No one is going to force someone to have one of these. But it isn't paranoia either to have one. That video was just one example of how for a relatively low amount of $$ you can potentially save yourself quite a bit later. There was another example in the local news recently of how one of these camera's caught an incident of road rage where a driver left his vehicle and struck another through his driver side window. That video led to an arrest and assault charges.

Windshield Camera Benefits

I would fear the perp and rather leave than directly confront, then call the cops. No telling how violent or drugged or drunk the hoodlum may be.
My Wrangler would not be damaged by such a tap anyway.
In the US, "no fault" on little taps is where you each pay your deductble (if the damage exceeds it). No idea how it is in Canada.

We were in an accident last year in Florida. A car made a right on red and hit us. They told the police I ran the red light. Another driver who witnessed the accident stopped and gave me his phone number and told me she ran the light. I gave the police the number and she was sighted. Had it not been for the witness I would have to pay my $500 deductible and it would have put points on my license. So I went and bought a dash cam and use it all the time in the MH and toad.

I bought one on E Bay about Four Years ago! It's great to be able to review some of the roads and routes,but above all it is there recording every moment of Our Trip! In the event of an accident there will be irrefutable Proof of Who is at fault!

If memory is still correct We paid about $30 for the Camera and another $30 for the SD Card that stores 8 hours of Video and Sound in 15 Minute Segments.

I went online and found a relatively inexpensive dash camera to install in my company car, which is branded with the auto insurance company name on the side. I've been in the business for nearly 30 years and I'm still amazed at the blatant disregard for fellow drivers and violation of driving laws. While I'm in the company car I have to remember I'm representing my company. And it's apparent to me that other drivers are aware of that as well. Last second, no signal lane changes - Running cross traffic red lights - passing in the curb lane - not stopping for pedestrians in the crosswalk. You name it, I've recorded it on my unit. For me it's a matter of preserving evidence to protect myself and others. You have to remember, a car is much more maneuverable than an rv. Imagine trying to execute a quick lane change to avoid a red light runner in an rv... It's your word against theirs. My unit records in 15 minute loops and can be set to record when motion is detected, which can also be a valuable asset at campsites.
