Drivers with dashcams could have their own footage used against them

Many drivers fit a dashcam to their car in order to capture the bad driving of others. This can be invaluable in the event of insurance fraud, and can prove fault where otherwise police and insurers would have to rely on "my word against yours".

But dashcam owners could be left in a sticky situation if they themselves are caught breaking the rules of the road. By law, police have the right to ask drivers to submit their own footage for review – and refusing to do so could carry an even worse penalty.
