If you have a RV Trailer or Motor Home, You need a Dash Cam. I bought another dash Cam for the car and the motor home. See below for my reason why.
Night before last, my oldest sons new car got cut off, and side swiped, by a big pickup truck, that was lifted and had oversize tires. my sons car was in the left hand turn lane next to the divider getting ready to make a turn. The pickup truck cut him off and it hit his car on the passenger side. The truck then jumped the divider and crossed into the oncoming lane of traffic went over the bank into a ditch and hit trees. The people in the truck claimed it my sons fault, and that he ran into them. The cops were ready to write my son a ticket because of the friends of the truck driver (so called witness’s), saying it was my sons fault. (my sons car had Nevada Plates, so the the cops were going to believe the locals). My son then told the cops that he had a dash cam. They said whoa, the cop yelled to the other cops that my son had a dash cam and to hold up writing a ticket. The cop told my son to give him the dash cam. My son started to refuse. The cop called over his Sargent, who told my son they were taking the dash cam as evidence of a accident. said they would get a warrant if necessary. My son unhooked the camera and gave it to them after getting a receipt. Yesterday they called my son and told him to come and pick up his camera. The camera showed that the other guy had cut my son off and hit his car. The cop told my son if he had not had the dash cam, he would have been in serious trouble because of the drivers friends testimony that it was his fault. They then went to the pickup drivers house and gave him a citation. I hope they give the so called witness’s a ticket for lying.
Just another reason to have a dash cam in this day and age, especially if you have a RV because people are always cutting you off or crowding in front of you. A dash cam can save your bacon If that happens.
