how come you dont want a rear camera? for a lot of people these days like me it is essential and has already proven good.
Yes. I don't want to be bothered with the install issues, and I don't drive enough to justify it. I'm perfectly happy with one camera on the windshield. If someone hits me from the rear, the camera will have recorded my speed at the time of the collision as well as the fact that I was hit from behind. That should be sufficient for my purposes. Most rear-enders are assumed to be the fault of the driver behind anyway, and the camera will have recorded sufficient information to prove I was not at fault.Could be install issues / cant be bothered with.
I completely agree with this, which is why I think I only need the front camera. If someone hits me from the rear, the camera will record the moments before, during, and after the collision. So, I'll have a record of how fast I was going (if I was moving at all), and it will be obvious that I didn't suddenly slam on the brakes. I no longer worry about my speed being recorded, because I seldom ever exceed the speed limit anymore. (I'm 72.)A front camera alone are just fine, if nothing else it will capture what you do with your vehicle, and if you follow the code as set forth by the wizz kids we elect to govern us, then at least whatever happen cant be your fault.
And i do personally think the cases where the wrong part get to pay for something are often based on claims that single camera can refute.
It is only when you get into pointing fingers at people in traffic more cameras become a good thing to have, and still pretty much all the things i have filmed in the past 8 years have been captured by my front camera.
Well, sure, but if they whack your door or the side of your car when they open their door, you're not gonna see that either. The former has never happened to me. The latter has repeatedly. Some things in life are beyond your control. But, if some jerk deliberately backs into me, my dashcam video is all I need to put him in his place. And, if I witness an accident, I can assist the police by providing the video, even it if involves my car.i will mainly use the rear camera for parking lots etc.. if someone runs into you in a parking lot at the rear, no rear camera = no idea who did it = there goes your no claim bonus.
