Top 5 Reasons Why You Need a Dash Cam in Your Car

A dashcam or dashboard camera is basically a car DVR ( digital video recorder ). It’s a camera that’s usually fitted front-facing to continuously record the view through a vehicle’s front windscreen.

Some dashcams include a camera to record the interior of the car also.

As a driver, you need to be aware of what is going on around you. While some think that dashcams are just for insurance purposes, they can also help protect you in other ways.

Dash-cams have become an increasingly popular safety device in recent years, but do you actually need one? We’ve put together 5 reasons why you should have a Dashcam fitted to your vehicle.

Here’s what you need to know about dashcams and whether or not it’s suitable for you.

Using this type of device will help you to have one less thing to worry about because it will record everything that happens in front of the car (and behind if fitted), so there’s no question as to who was at fault if, for example, an accident occurs.

You don’t want the hassle or stress involved with finding out who hit whom when someone rear-ends your vehicle while driving down the highway – especially when there are no other eyewitnesses available.

The footage from these devices will show exactly what happened and where it took place without any question.

Accident Evidence

Dashcams are a great way to protect yourself in case of an accident. They can record everything that happens on the road, including any details about your version of events and provide a detailed review if anything goes wrong.

Without a dashcam, you drive around with that slight fear in your head where you are afraid that someone can purposely reverse into your car and pretend as if it’s your fault.

Having a dashcam can prevent a lawsuit and a shorter court day, as you already have all the evidence you need to prove the other party wrong (if you’re being disputed against).

Avoiding Insurance Fraud

Insurance fraud is when one purposely exaggerates an accident to receive more money from the insurance company.

There are individuals Committing insurance fraud every day, and you can become a victim of it one day. The best way to avoid this situation is to ensure you have a dashcam installed on the front and back of your vehicle.

Capturing Scenic Adventures

A dashcam is perfect for recording your favourite road, views and more. If you love travelling, this will give an immersive experience that cannot be found anywhere else.

A dashcam can capture all those unforgettable moments on media, so they’re never forgotten or lost again- whether it’s scenic beauty like stunning mountains or breathtaking coastlines. We personally like taking it when four-wheel driving through the Australian bush.

Dashcams are also great at encapsulating all your memories on the road with your family or friends.


Monitor your Driving Habits

It’s easy to forget the little things in life, like how you drive. That is why having a dashboard camera on your car can be such an asset when it comes time for self-reflection or practising safe driving habits.

There are always some less obvious flaws that might escape us while we’re concentrating too hard and trying not to make mistakes.

Security of the Vehicle

Usually, one’s car is their prize possession and having someone come and steal something from inside or accidentally scrape the paint, etc., can be extremely irritating.

Having a dashcam is a great way to catch that vandal if it allows you to record while the vehicle is parked and stationary. It could also protect you in an emergency like carjacking, the thief will see the dash cam and know they will be caught so will probably have second thoughts about attacking you.

Cams will record footage that can be used as evidence if your car is broken into or damaged, so you’ll have something valuable on hand when it’s time for justice.



In my opinion, a dashcam is a must-have for any vehicle these days. Not only can they help you prove your innocence in the event of an accident, but they provide beautiful video footage, improve your driving habits or prevent highjacking.
