Top Reasons to Install a Dashcam in Your Car

Did you ever have something happen to your car and wish you had video footage? From parking lot dings to road collisions, video cameras on your dashboard, or dashcams, are a great way to be prepared. Do you think it’s worth it? Here are Staples & Associates’ top reasons to install a dashcam in your car. 

Why Your Vehicle Needs a Dashcam

So many of us rely heavily on our vehicles each day and we spend countless hours using them. A dashcam can pair well with auto insurance to protect your investment. 

Dashcams Assist in the Event of an Insurance Claim

Having a dashcam can be helpful evidence in the event you need to file a claim. The recordings may be able to provide vital information regarding what happened at the time of the claim. In the event of a hit and run, the camera may be able to capture the make and model of the vehicle, the color, and potentially the tag number which can be provided to the police.

Avoid Insurance Increases with Dashcam Evidence 

While auto insurance carriers aren’t providing any additional discounts for having a dashcam, installing one can help avoid potential increases due to claims by providing evidence that you were not at fault. 

Prevent Vandalism and Theft with a Dashcam’s Parking Mode 

Because the dashcam will be visible on your dashboard, it can help deter unwanted entry or vandalism. Should something occur, there will likely be evidence available. And, if you park your car on the street or in a public place such as an airport for an extended time period, try parking mode. Parking mode records footage even when the vehicle is parked, providing security when you’re away.
