dash cam from Nextbase |
In a recent case reported in the press,
a road rage driver in a 4X4 crossed in front of a car unrelated to the road rage
dispute and it resulted in a serious crash in which two passengers were seriously
injured. The driver of the car hit by the road rage 4X4 had a dash cam running
and was able to present the recording of the accident as evidence that resulted
in the jailing of the road rage driver. Without that evidence it could easily
have been far more difficult to prove the 4X4 driver's behaviour caused the accident.
That was a serious case but there are many other situations where having
a recording of what happens in front of your car can be useful. For a classic
car driver there is also the secondary pleasure of recording some of the scenic
routes when you are touring.

212 Lite Dash Cam
A new, smaller dash cam has been launched by Nextbase
which looks as if it will have most of the features a driver will need in a compact
dash cam. That will enable the 212 to be fixed to the windscreen and hidden from
the driver's view through the windscreen in front of the rear view mirror. You
can see details of this new model online. More
the latest issue of the Which? magazine there is a brief news item (see
alongside) that they will be running a consumer test on the 212 soon.
