Cat videos. The only thing youtubers love more than a cat video is an in car camera video. Russian drivers all seem to have in car cameras, mainly because they are extremely creative about how they crash into each other. And they crash a lot. If you don’t know how inventive the Russians can be at crashing their cars, watch this. It has to be seen to be believed.
Joking aside, sales of in car cameras have soared for one very good reason. They help people with their car insurance claims. Wouldn’t it be great if you were able to prove the circumstances of an accident to your car or motorcycle when you were seeking compensation? Simply by installing an in-car camera, you can take all the stress out of making a road accident claim.
“The most obvious reason for having a camera is self-protection. Says Mr Azri Zulfarhan, a 27- year-old engineer who has cameras installed on his motorbike: ‘If something happens, the video is like a witness.’ ” The Straits Times, May 26, 2014
You can install an in car camera for as little as $50, then you will have a visual record of what happens to your car. The camera can also offer a detailed record of the location, date, time, direction and speed of impact. The camera takes all the ‘he said, she said’, ‘I don’t know’, ‘it wasn’t me’ and ‘I don’t remember’ out of the claim process. In short, it can enhance the strength and speed of your claim as only incontrovertible proof can.

These cameras can be a great aid to safe driving – some contain a special sensor that can be set to warn motorists when they are accelerating too fast, hard-braking or speeding through sharp turns. The camera can even be set to record when your car is stationary or parked, acting as a great deterrent against vandals or thieves.
“Having such a camera is like buying insurance. You get it fixed, check it diligently to make sure it works and trust it will not let you down when you need it.” The Straits Times, May 26, 2014
Here’s hoping that you will not be witness to any kind of incident involving a cat or a driver doing equally strange things. In any event, why not have your own camera installed… just in case?
