Should I install a dash cam in my car?


Installing a dash cam on your car can definitely be a good investment. Everyone’s hope is to never need it but accidents might happen and a dash cam could put you in the clear and save you a lot of money when it comes to requesting emergency roadside assistance and repairing your car.


Here are a few reasons as to why you should install a dash cam on your vehicle.



Reduce Break-ins


Somebody might be less likely to break in your car should they see a camera being used. That alone, will save you a lot of headache and money. Additionally, many insurances are likely to cover more of your damages with video evidence of what has happened.


In some cases, we have seen stickers warning people that the car had a video surveillance system. Creative!


Avoid Unfair Tickets 


Everyone makes mistakes and law enforcers are not an exception. Automated traffic cameras are also known for making mistakes.

Having a dash camera will be extremely helpful to record what goes on while you drive, clearing you from infractions you actually did not commit. That alone, will repay the cost of the camera itself but also save you a lot of money!


Monitor Your Car


It is very common to install cameras to make sure everything is fine with your house. At the same time, you might want to make sure that your car has no issues while you park it in an unknown geographical location.


This, together with the undoubtful help that you will get in case of a claim, will definitely give you good arguments toward the decision to purchase and install a good dash camera.



Something else to consider is that a camera won’t lower your insurance automatically. Should you hear that on some other blogs, they might be referring to the fact that a camera footage might be helping with not increasing your rate for things you actually didn’t do.
