Hope you find a witness. It's cases like that I should be installing a dash cam in my car.

Good luck with finding a witness.

This isn't meant for you personally, more of a rant towards the general public:
We all know that dashcams exist, and we all know that a cheap $20 Chinese dashcam is enough to prove your innocence in case of an accident. What I don't understand is why people are constantly delaying installing a dashcam. Installing it doesn't take very long, and a small investment of $20 dollars can save you thousands. All these threads are popping up with people looking for witnesses, and saying how they should have installed a dashcam, but didn't. You never think that something will happen to you, until it does. By then it's usually too late.

I completely agree with the dashcam approach - it would have been all the witness I needed in this scenario. I had actually been thinking about installing one for ages, but always put it off; wish I hadn't.

I know it's already been said, but I see so many "I should really install a dashcam" comments...and then 2 weeks later, in a separate thread, the same comment by the same person.

Like, wtf

For those on the fence or don't have time to research, this one has been super popular of late, great quality video for the price: [TMart] Genuine G1WH w/Novatek NT96650 Processor 1080p Dash Cam - $51.20 CAD - RedFlagDeals.com Forums

I have one with the same hardware but different brand that cost twice what this one is selling for, would recommend it.

i just got into an accident a month and a half ago. the dispute is still going on thanks to a thorough statement and witness. http://www.revscene.net/forums/69417...14-8-40am.html

so now i learned...dash cams are the best investment in cars. the first thing i got my new car was a blackvue dr500 with power magic pro. nmotion did an awesome job installing.
