    I use one. best protection from other drivers you can have. People lie, moving pictures however don't lie. Well they can but it can be forensically examined and prove usefull for determining fault in an accident.

    Recently a cab driver told me that people jump out onto the street and try to get insurance settlements. Wouldn't be surprised if dash cams become more common here, at least for commercial drivers.

    Mine's on the handlebar of the bike or the helmet of the dirt bike. Took a trip last summer and got 13 hrs of video from the Grand Canyon and up through Utah. Several deer a couple of turkeys and a coyote have gotten some screen time.

    With mandatory backup cams coming soon, courtesy of Our Washington Servants, I'd say dashcams will not be far behind.

    Don't mess with Russians! What I love is that right after, what looks like Russian police cruiser cuts in front presumably to help and guy drives off, no problems. Russian police probably gave the perp a few more kicks
