Posted by Amrit Mirpuri on December 9th, 2019

In the Philippines, car dashboard cameras have become more than just an accessory added to make vehicles appear high-end. They are now considered must-have accessories on the road. If you still don't have one clipped to your rearview mirror or windshield, then it's time to start looking for your own dashboard camera. To convince you further, here are some facts about car dashboard cameras you need to know.

Surveillance cameras

If you regularly watch the news, you will notice how dashcam videos are used as evidence when reporting accidents on the road. In other countries, dashcams have even captured news-worthy events such as a plane clipping a bridge in Taiwan and a crashing meteorite in Chelyabinsk, Russia. That’s how useful these tiny little gadgets are.

First-hand evidence

Dashboard cameras automatically begin recording as soon as you start your car's engine. Since it records your entire trip, it can give real-time, efficient, and straight-to-the-point proof in case you encounter an accident on the road. You can submit the footage as evidence to help the authorities find out who is at fault. This is one of the reasons why many car companies are installing these cameras in their vehicles.

Safe driving

Aside from providing evidence, car dashboard camera is also installed to encourage safe and prudent driving. Some units can do more than just recording trips—they also assist drivers on the road. They feature lane departure warnings and G sensors that measure car speed. This is how dashcams give you, the other vehicles, and pedestrians protection on the road.

Lower insurance rates

People who install dashcams in their vehicles can enjoy better insurance rates, in some cases. Insurance companies see dashcams as important car accessories that will help prevent crashes and reduce the chances of accidents. Having a dashcam is also one way of proving that you are a responsible driver. In case you are filing for an insurance claim, you can easily prove to your provider that the crash was not fabricated.

Purchasing dashcam is not a ‘jumping on the bandwagon’ kind of thing. It's a wise move to ensure the safety and protection of your assets, yourself, and your passengers.
