Front and Rear Dash Cam
In the Bangor, Maine area people take safety very seriously. That is why some of the cars in this county have a dual front and rear dash cam. And, why you should consider buying one too.
Why You Need a Dual Front and Rear Dash Cam
Getting into a car accident is a scary thing. Often drivers do not want to admit that they are the ones at fault for the accident. The dash cam does not lie, and it is date and time stamped for accuracy. A dash cam can assist law enforcement officers (LEO) determine who was at fault for the accident.
Parking lot accidents are widespread. You might come back from shopping and find your car dented or keyed down one side by a vandal. A dash cam with motion detectors and automatic activation will videotape the incident and the video the individuals responsible. Even if they do not hang around the accident area or notify you with a note on your windshield, you will have them on camera, which you can turn over to the police.
Dash cams get used in positive ways as well. Many dual front and rear dash cams come with a still photo feature, which takes photos periodically on a trip when activated. During a family trip, the dash cam will take still images at random both front and rear-facing images. This is great for those that like to sightsee. This is good when driving around New England when the autumn leaves change color for those that enjoy the natural scenery.
Dash Cams in Penobscot County, Maine
Dash cams in this county are perhaps not as popular as they should be. I suppose that’s mostly because the economy is not as good anymore since all the paper mills, shoe shops, and industry have left the area. However, not having one could cost more in the long run if there’s an incident.
Special Features for a Dual Front and Rear Dash Cam
When someone is looking for a front and rear dash cam, they look for specific features. These features include night vision, motion detectors, automatic activation, G-Sensor Locking (which lock the video from being overwritten after an incident without manual intervention), parking monitor, and many others, so shop around to get the features you want. Motion detectors will help pick up movement around the car when it is parked as mentioned above. This might not prevent theft or vandalism, but you will have the evidence you need to assist LEO in making an arrest. Automatic activation will start a recording when anyone bumps your vehicle or tries to gain entry.
Dash cams record actual incidents as they happen and are admissible in most courts as evidence if they have a date/time stamp.
The Bottom Line
It is undeniable that using a dual front and rear dash cam will save you and your family from being taken advantage of by vandals, insurance fraud, and hit and run drivers.
