A Little camera on your dashboard can cut your insurance and help you prove that a crash wasn’t your fault, as well as helping you prosecute the fraudulent and dangerous drivers.
Dash cameras are not as popular in Western Europe as they are in Russia. In fact, the majority of the famous Chelyabinsk meteorite videos in 2013 were filmed with dash cameras.
Nonetheless, there are more benefits to dash cameras than filming strange occurrences on the road. While young drivers get a black box to track their driving and lower their insurance costs, the really smart drivers, on the other hand, get dashboard cameras.
With a growing concern for insurance fraud and uninsured drivers on the road, people are becoming more careful when it comes to the actions of other road users. The number of drivers running away from accidents is increasing, leaving you with a crashed car and not only nobody to blame, but your no-claims bonus and low insurance premiums in tatters.
So What’s a Dashboard Camera?
It is a small video recorder, which clips to the front window of a car or a van. These cameras vary in their specs, but primarily they function in the same way that any CCTV camera does, by recording and storing data.
While there are a host of cheap and simple dashboard cameras available on the market, companies like In Car Connections, sell advanced dashboard cameras that react to motion and sudden breaking.
While dash cams can be an expense, it is surely a worthy investment.
Dash cameras record everything on the road, so if you get hit by a dangerous driver, there is no need to extensively argue to prove the true cause of the crash and pay the associated court fees.
In addition, dash cameras can help other road users. While a lot of accidents go unreported, and numerous dangerous drivers escape fines, your video footage can help innocent drivers to find whoever injured them or damaged their vehicles.
Moreover, a lot of accidents involving pedestrians and cyclists are captured by dashboard cameras. While cyclists involved in road accidents may not be quick-thinking enough make a note of a car’s registration, you can surely help them out, by providing them with information or even the footage of their accident.
Prevent Insurance Fraud
Getting involved in a pedestrian accident is probably one of the worst fears of any driver. However, not all of those accidents are the fault of the driver. There are people crazy enough to run out into traffic to get hit by a driver in order to receive compensation.
Thankfully, having a dash camera will help to prove your innocence. Whether it is a pedestrian, or another driver trying to make a spurious whiplash claim.
Travel Safely Abroad
Important safety questions always arise when you are abroad. Not only surrounding local drivers potentially taking advantage of you on the road, but you may also have difficulties reporting accidents whilst you are abroad. Thus, having a dash board camera can definitely improve your road safety abroad.
So install a dash cam now and fight dodgy insurance claims. Your footage will help you to fight your corner against road traffic accidents and crash fraudsters, and help to lower your monthly insurance instalments. Improve your road safety, and help others improve theirs!
8 Of The Best ‘Old’ And New Car Features Of 2019
The future in auto tech is already here, and it’s very exciting.
As cars become safer, more fuel-efficient, and more comfortable, it’s harder and harder for the average motorist to imagine how they can be even better. However, for car manufacturers, there seems to be endless possibilities everywhere.
Be it improvements in autonomous tech, electric drivetrains and heads up displays, or upping a car’s luxury, the automotive industry is bringing us many exciting things. Here are eight of the best ‘old’ and new car features of 2019.
1. Blind Spot Sensors
Many of the features in cars focus on driving safety. Blind spot sensors detect when cars are out of the typical range of mirrors and alert you of their presence. This doesn’t remove the importance of taking a quick glance over your shoulder before changing lanes, but it will definitely help reduce the number of accidents caused by blind spots.
2. Phone Starter
Imagine a blistering cold morning, One where the ground is covered by snow and you’re frantically scraping your windshield clean of ice while you bitterly await the car’s heater to put out its end of the bargain. Well, situations like this are a problem of the past as of 2019.
New vehicles can connect to your wireless device and power on remotely, allowing to take on the cold winter months with confidence knowing you will have a heated car waiting for you. In addition to the climate control system, your car’s door locks, alarm, interior and exterior lighting, and liftgate or trunk can also be operated remotely.
3. Heads Up Display
Touch screen menus now have a second cousin. Heads up displays (HUD, for short) are the hip new feature in today’s cars. They are usually in the form of a small display on the front windshield above the steering wheel and below your eyes’ normal field of vision that shows speed, gas levels, and even directions to minimize any reason for you to take your hands of the steering wheel and/or look away from the road.
4. Automatic Parallel Parking
For those of you who have visited small beach towns in Florida or driven through the crowded, narrow streets of San Francisco, you know that parallel parking is a must-have skill. But parallel parking is difficult, and car manufacturers seem to agree, explaining why many 2019 vehicles now come equipped with automatic parking assist systems.
If you’ve been thinking of moving to that bustling Florida town, you can take comfort in knowing there will be a car to handle the tight street parking for you anytime and anywhere, be that car be from a Mercedes Benz dealer near Coral Springs or a Honda dealer in Seattle.
5. 360 Cameras
You know those rear-end cameras that help with reversing? Those are so 2018. Now you can expect full 360-degree cameras to cover all four sides of your car. This comes in handy in many situations and can prevent unforeseen scratches or bumper damage.
6. Individual Climate Zones
Thanks to advancements in auto tech, the driver and the passengers can now create their own microclimates inside a of car. By giving each person the power to set his or her own temperature, there will be less bickering over the AC dial.
Many new cars offer dual-zone climate controls for the driver and front passenger, and some can even be equipped with “tri-zone” or “quad-zone” climate control so that rear passengers aren’t left in the cold, so to speak.
7. Pre-Safe Pulse
For those who want to take safety to the next level, the Pre-safe Pulse is a new crash safety measure for side impacts. When the car senses an imminent crash about to take place, the driver and passenger seats automatically move closer to the center of the vehicle. For side accidents, even a minimal five-centimeter difference can reduce the impact felt to passengers by one-third.
8. Mirrors with Auto-dim
If you drive a lot at night, you’ve probably noticed that headlights have gotten much more powerful over the years. In some ways, this is tremendously beneficial. Being able to see further and with more clarity is important. However, being on the receiving end of these lights is not only annoying, but it can be dangerous.
Drivers are less inclined to check their mirrors if they get blinded every time they try. For this reason, newer vehicles have equipped mirrors with auto-dimming. These reduce the glare caused by headlights behind you and keep your focus on the road.
Cars Are Getting Smarter
The results of these new features are that cars are getting smarter and drivers now have the tools they need to make better decisions. This combination of factors will surely decrease the number of car accidents and make driving a safer, more efficient and reliable method of transportation.
Fiat Chrysler Unconnect Now Lets You Order Pizza Using Your Car
Uconnect has consistently been one of the best infotainment system on the market, and Uconnect Market will make it even better.

You Can Order Domino’s Pizza Using Your Chevrolet
Don’t have 60 seconds to phone in a pizza order? This is for you.
General Motors has updated the infotainment systems on Chevrolet vehicles with a new Domino’s pizza ordering tool.
As part of the American automaker’s growing in-car Marketplace ecosystem, the app lets drivers place orders for carryout or home delivery using the in-vehicle touchscreen interface and Chevrolet Marketplace portal.
It would be too distracting and downright unsafe if the system let you configure an entire pizza from scratch, so you are limited to just saved and recent orders.
General Motors has been steadily growing Marketplace since its launch in 2017. In April 2018, Chevrolet partnered with Shell to allow in-car gas purchases, sparing you the trouble of using the gas pump’s magnetic reader and being the victim of credit card skimming. In November of the same year, Buick added Yelp compatibility to its infotainment system, allowing you to make restaurant reservations on the go.
The new Domino’s app works with any 2017 model year or newer Chevrolet vehicle that runs Marketplace.
