Dashcam usage hits record levels

Latest reports suggest that more UK drivers than ever are choosing to fit a dashcam in their car. Sales of the in-car cameras have doubled over the past year, and more than one in ten vehicles is now fitted with one.

The cameras are often used as a safety net. They're ideal for proving blame in an accident without witnesses – providing an unbiased account of the event. In fact, footage is already being used to resolve disputes over blame. Admiral Insurance said that so far in 2017, it had not had to take a single case to court where dashcam footage was available to prove liability.
