Keeping an eye on surroundings of your house is quite common but what about your car? A car is quite a dangerous place and something can go wrong in an instant. That’s why it’s important to keep track of everything that’s going on inside and on the outside. Of course, most of us use smartphones to record video or take a quick shot but on the road you need something better. Some people usually go by with simple dashboard cams but you can go a bit further and install a concealed small spy camera inside your car interior. Here are a few reasons why you need to consider this option.
Incidents on the road
It can be your own accident or just an incident with other drivers. In any case, it’s always useful to have video proof to anything that could happen on the road. At least, if you are accused of something you haven’t done, you can confirm your innocence. And the other way around, you video recording can help the police find the criminal as soon as possible.
This is a pretty widespread thing on the road. When a car is parked and closed, criminals can break in and steal your belongings or the car itself. By installing a spy camera, you can have some evidence to help identify the criminal. And even if your car has been stolen, you can use special cameras, which immediately send notifications to a smartphone, or transmit live video to your mobile devices. That way, you’re one step ahead of any perpetrator.
It’s not uncommon when law enforcement officers misuse their rights and accuse innocent drivers of anything. Of course, they have their own technology but you can always give them your own video recording. That is your chance to prove the police wrong and avoid any punishment.
Taxi drivers issues
Cabs are probably the most used kind of transport in big cities. But sometimes, people don’t feel safe in a taxi. Cameras ensure safety of all passengers. It’s also a good thing for drivers – you never know what strangers have in mind, so it’s important to be protected with some video footage just in case.
Sidenote: before installing such a camera, find out everything about your local laws because some U.S. states and world countries don’t allow video or audio recording.
