By no means assumed it’d appear to this, but I reckon it’s time each and every motorist cautiously contemplates setting up an equaliser (aka a dash cam or other audio visual product) inside of the vehicle wanting at other drivers.
I’m not talking about new and pointless Govt laws forcing us to do this. As an alternative, I advise we rejoice the advanced and reasonably priced evidence-accumulating tech available to us. For the great guys – which is the overpowering majority of us – we have very little to fear about as these cameras can and do assistance shield us and our cars (criminals loathe cameras).
• Very best dash cams 2017
Also, we should really bear in mind that if dash, head or body cams are suitable for expanding numbers of community transportation motor vehicle drivers furthermore riders of two-wheeled machines, then they’re equally correct for motor vehicle occupants, truckers, van drivers, cabbies, and all of us on the roadways (or in vehicle parks where by numerous small incidents manifest).
Let’s have a degree participating in discipline by reminding ourselves that if other street people want to issue their lenses at vehicle drivers, we can return the compliment. What could be fairer and more democratic? Yup, I’m contacting for a ‘cams-for-all’ on our roadways. The lawful/justice technique would be increased, as the accused may have more degrees of online video footage evidence than their accuser. Still not confident? Then think of your equalising dash cam more as a lawfully recognised, impartial witness able of encouraging your result in, instead than an evil spying product out to harm it.
Digicam tech has hence much been applied mostly as a weapon to assault and prosecute us. So let’s equalise issues by applying it as an efficient kind of defence, as well. It is a perversion of the course of justice that motorists are inclined to be ‘guilty until demonstrated innocent’ these times. This injustice will not transform except and until we present online video evidence that more efficiently illustrates and proves our aspect of the story.
If a citizen commits a perilous unlawful act on a pavement or any other community position, it’s wholly suitable that footage is applied to determine the suspect and deal with them by way of the appropriate police procedures. The same goes for suspects in or around trains, railway stations and airports. So why should really riders or drivers sat upon or inside of non-motorised or motorised two or 4-wheeled cars be the exception to the rule? As a normal rider, vehicle consumer and industrial motor vehicle driver, I say we shouldn’t.
