    Stop for the school bus (please)

    Vancouver BC school bus. Drivers ignore the stop signals. Really bad behavior. This driver needs a real dash cam (not phone). Maybe the school district could supply/install ones.

    Near miss as truck flies through air in Iowa, USA

    News video from police dash cam. I found it running on a BBC site. It is amazing that neither police car, nor a pedestrian was hit. It happened as a state trooper was questioning a motorist on US Interstate 80, with his dashboard camera still...

    Please comment if your LS300W or GT300W records sound clearly. Also comment if you get no (or unusable) sound. It would be helpful to know what was the typical performance.

    E-Prince - Amazon

    I purchased a DOD WS300W from E-Prince and they provided good sales support. The customs office adds several days to process the shipment but it did ship from their sales office promptly and then delivered quickly after clearing the customs office. Total of 2 weeks, but 10 days in customs. The...
