Remember all those dashcam videos from Russia. The ones where the FSA would throw themselves in front of cars for the insurance money.

This is in California. I think it's time I invest in a Dashcam.

Good ole Live Leak.

As more and more people invest in Dashcams, I can see us competing with Russia for the best videos.

And, of course, the cops were ready to stick it up his ass.

Can you prove yourself innocent, Citizen?

Thank goodness he could.

Thanks to this thread I bought a G1W and it's been in my car ever since. So far I got a car swerving into my my lane without checking blind spots or using turn signals and a near collision on someone running a red.

I remember seeing footage (IIRC NYC bus) that had got in a wreck, someone else just happened to film it from nearby.

A bunch of "bystanders" rushed into the bus after the crash and claimed to have been injured while riding inside.

The footage proved them all to be frauds.

Yes,
Fuck people

I had some FSAer hide behind the tree next to my driveway waiting on me to back out. Tree's about 4 feet from the drive way entrance/exit, and he must have seen me leaving the house and ducked down. Started backing up and out of now where I hear this Uhhh noise. I stop, get out and this FSAer is limping and shit. At first I thought I hit him, but then it dawned on me he was grabbing the wrong leg. I was nice to him, asking if he needed medical help and when he looked up at me he saw my neighbor standing right there. My neighbor (good ole boy who has unfortunately moved away) saw the whole thing. Once the FSAer saw my neighbor he was all like "I'm good brotha, gotta get to my momma's house." He took over jogging down the block. Dumb SOB A-hole. Ever since then I back into my driveway so I can see clearly see everything in front of me when I pull out. Definitely want to get one of those G1W.

If they jumped in front of my truck I'd make good and damn sure they got hit and then some.

I watched a bum run into a car one night. He was standing next to a pole with a paper rack.
He watched the car in front of me turn the corner, then ran into it. He was giving some 3rd shift nurse
a whole slew of shit until I told them "That bum ran into the side of your car. I called the cops".
He ran like a rabbit. The nurse didn't want to be late for work, so she took off.

I waited for a few minutes, then left. Who knows what would have happened if I kept going???

Cool, now we can have the Dash Cam Olympics.

Both nations are ripe with corruption and communism now, so it should be about even.

Bob Costas, "And this year's entry for the US in Pedestrian flipping comes from California. Normally our best athletes in this sport come from Detroit, but La-Shantaquavius Deshonda Jones from Oakland really nailed that double back flip. Speaking of Detroit, here's last year's winner, just out of rehab, Leroy Holmes. Glad you could join us Leroy."

Leroy Holmes, " You kno Dat Rite. My mayne man Mista Jones, and that's LaDASHantaquavius, cuz da dash don't be silent Bob, you kno that fool got some air. I think the reason cause dat Honda was doin bout one fotay when my mayne stepped out to da skreet. He just come out da licka sto, and that hard left lean allowed his body geometry to get da lift necessary to maybe win dis event. You kno he got dem extra points cuz he ain't spill a damn drop o da 40 oz when he hit da skreet. I thank he might be done took Ivan outta foist place"

Bob Costas, " Yes Mr. Jones certainly was impressive, with very little if any give when he hit the car, just a real solid bounce, very springy, the way only the pros do. Remember though, Ivan didn't get the height on his jump, but he got about 300 more feet in distance than Mr. Jones, and the icy surface , while it helped in some ways, really added some difficulty to the seven triple lutz combos he did, plus, he was still drinking vodka as they carried him off. I will say the distance , while impressive, may not count as much, since it was a semi truck instead of a passenger car."

Leroy Holmes, " Tru Dat Bob, Tru Dat."

Bob Costas, " Now a word from our sponsor, Go Pro."

I'm using a G1W-C in my truck currently. So far I've recorded a few drivers being asshats on the road but it's only time before it captures a major accident. Hell, while waiting for the dashcam to arrive, my truck was almost destroyed by some stupid bitch running the red light. I had the green left turn light and she just barrels through the intersection. Missed my truck about a foot or so. I am absolutely sure if she did hit my vehicle, she'd claim it was my fault. Fuck these asshat drivers. These cheap dashcams are worth it.

This thing, I think, unless there's multiple G1W Dash cams out there.

There's a unit that looks very much like it on Newegg for $35.

Got one in my truck 6 months ago.
2 weeks after I had put it in the truck some asshole ran into the side of my truck and claimed it was my fault.

Video was all the cop needed to see.

I saw one a while back when I ended up on the weird side of youtube where the doofus tried to jump on the guy's hood, but the guy was quick and reversed out from under him [lucky there was nobody behind him, I guess]. Anyway the Doofus was still rolling around on the ground, so the driver gets out and says, wstte: Hey I know this is a scam, but if you cut me in for 25% I'll go along with it. The doofus is instantly cured, stands up and agrees [Still on camera].

People for the most part are worthless fucking shit.

I used to think my father was crazy for always telling me growing up "people are animals" and "everyone is out to fuck you".

Now that I'm in my 50s I see that he was correct.

There's now a G1WH now that's less conspicuous for about the same price with a wider angle view. Pro tip: Set screen saver to 3 minutes so the display turns off and stops distracting you. The little red LED will still blink so you know it's recording.

It helps to have a sympathetic cop.

Several years ago in traffic school the instructor (an LAPD cop) told this story: He arrived at a 2 vehicle TC where 5 people were lying in the street groaning. He caught the other cop's nod and they separated the two drivers. After talking to them for a minute the other cop called over and yelled, "Hey, this lady's insurance is expired. How about the other guy?" "Nope, he doesn't have any insurance either."
Immediately 5 people got up and walked away!

It. Just. Makes. Sense. To. Buy. A. Dashcam.

I had this experience a week after buying mine. It just makes sense.

I have no idea. I would like to know also. Where I live they would have arrested the guy and the witness's on the spot for lying to the police. The driver of the car made a wise decision on investing in a Dashcam. It clearly saved his butt.

It records over the oldest block of video a bit at a time. So you always have the last 30 minutes, last hour etc... depending on the size of your card.

You only need to download it if you want to save a clip.
