Dashboard cameras used to be an essential in every police car. They were an innovative gadget that allows police officers to keep track of what they’re up to, from chasing criminals or when making the rounds as part of their patrol duties. These cameras are specifically designed to withstand a great amount of shock, and to fit perfectly inside a car’s dashboard. They have proven to be extremely useful in getting accurate recordings of road accidents, chasing incidents, and other uses.
But over time, when the videos recorded by these police cameras were presented to the public in news (and sometimes in documentaries and reality shows), many people became appreciative of their uses. As a result, the dashboard camera has turned from a police tool into a civilian’s best friend. Today, there are many people who have dashboard cameras installed in their cars.
