Well, that makes sense, but this generally a no-no. If this is for a speeding ticket you may get away with this, but this is really a bad idea if you'd get into a fatality accident or any other serious incident. You simply can't destroy evidence that could be used against you; Google evidence tampering.

I am not heavily into dashcamming, but I got a Sony HDR-AS30, and I like it. I got to use as an action cam (like GoPro) with the thought that I'd also use it as a dashcam. On the positive side, it works great, excellent resolution, very compact, integrated GPS (thus you can get velocities, positions, etc.), and is tough. On the negative side it is build as an action cam not a dash cam, thus it does not have the features that you'd probably want in a dash cam, like a screen, and easier operation.

My recommendation is to try to adapt a video camera that you already know and love, or get a camera that you could have multiple uses.

One important thing that you need to consider compared to other cameras that you may be used to is how it handles the long term recording.

Good luck!

Dash Cam

There is NO EXPECTATION OF PRIVACY on a public way or public place. As a , now retired thirty year LEO, I loved the dash recorder in my cruiser. Once the "offender" learned everything was recorded, most just pled guilty.

As far as the evidence goes, no you should not destroy it but you are not required to provide evidence against yourself either.
GPS, I thought would be beneficial but another forum pointed out that a recorded GPS speed of even one or two miles an hour over the limit could make you culpable also, relieving the other driver of the complete fault.

John, I do not know what the law is in the state that you live or travel in, but generally in the US you will be required to turn over such evidence against yourself during a discovery process if the other side asks you for it.

With respect to the going over the allowed speed, it would certainly be brought up by the other side, but if it was not a contributing factor to the accident, it would not absolve the other side of there fault.
