    Where do you put your stickers alerting pax to the presence of a dashcam? On the windows facing out? Windows facing in? Both? On some surface inside other than the windows? It's tricky for me because I usually roll down the windows a few inches to start the "I'm so-and-so. What's your...

    Imagine if all you made that day was $100 and this shit happens. You got to protect yourself otherwise you would swallow that seatbelt ticket. I think they should give weekly eye exams to the NYPD or at least make them go for a bachelors before they do this kind of job. You potentially waste...

    My current dashcam is kind of broken as it turns on and off automatically few times a day. So I'm thinking to buy a new dashcam. My question is should I wait til Black Friday and will there be a huge discount on Black Friday? If so, I might as well wait til then and buy one

    Hi all! I'm looking to pick up a Dashcam that records inside the car (preferably with an IR emitter, for night vision, and without a screen). The Blackvue DR900s-2ch IR is good, but I'm essentially buying half a dashcam I don't need (and I only drive Uber, I'm not a contract chauffeur for a...

    Do I really need a dashcam? Recently I acquired a new dashcam. I won't complain about my old dashcam. I will simply say that having the proper features in a dashcam is Uber important. Yes, that was a play on words. As an older person in society, I have heard some really stupid stuff in my...

    The one time I try to put in a day shift, a minnesota decides to smooch my prius. The idea that day driving is safer is bullshit. Sober day drivers aren't that much better than night time drunk drivers, but there are so many more of them trying to give you a bad day. I handle the crash, call...

    I just ordered one of these, haven't gotten it yet, but thought I'd let you all know about the sale now. Anker finally released a dual camera for us drivers. It basically is a knock off of the vantrue N2pro dual, but cheaper...

    So yesterday I have a rider who asked me about my dash cam. He said "you have a camera?" with a tone like he thought he was catching me doing something or I would be ashamed or apologetic. With pride and confidence I said "yes sir, two of them". This rider was very astute for noticing the...

    Caught her rummaging through my center console, then take a bottle of water and pour it on my seat when I was out of the car. She didn't know she was on dashcam. It was a similar case to one I posted last week. Pax waited till we were close to the destination, and then wanted to go somewhere...

    In between pax I find that I'm talking to myself. Playing over the strange interactions with pax in my mind. Or many times cursing at other cars for doing stupid stuff on the road. And then, I realize I'm on the dashcam. If I ever have to turn in the video to the police, I'll be sitting there...

    After reflecting on my worst pax to date, the vast majority of them announced themselves to be problem pax at the beginning by showing a reluctance to be surveilled by my security dashcam. I'm considering declining to begin the trip when this occurs. I believe I'm within my rights to do so...

    I got my second report that a passenger was "uncomfortable with my driving speed", and am now deactivated for having "multiple reports of unsafe incidents". According to the message, "our decision is final". I offered to show them the dashcam footage when I got the first report a few months ago...

    Unbelievable that a health care facility would call for a rideshare in an attempt to get rid of a patient they don't want. Isn't this illegal?

    Three features you must have in a Dash Cam before considering buying one. (1) Dual Dash Cam is front & Inside of the vehicle. (2) WiFi will automatically download videos to your phone via an app from the manufacturer. (3) GPS logs your speed date and time, which can help in case you end up...

    Just bought Vantrue N2 pro; it exceeds all my expectations. Question: other than significant events, what are your file retention practices? In an abundance of caution I have the space to save all, but that seems unnecessary. Letting it overwrite as needed is attractive, so long as I...
