Insurance.com Logo By Penny Gusner of Insurance.com | Slide 1 of 10: Dash-cam video camera in a car

The footage can be invaluable

You may not own a dash cam, but you’ve almost certainly seen dash-cam footage – some of it spectacular.

In-car cameras have captured hysterically blatant fraud attempts, inept parking jobs and police stops gone awry. But video needn’t go viral to deliver a measure of justice for drivers who record their miles on the road.

While merely owning a dash cam may not lower your car insurance rates all by itself, the footage that the camera provides may turn out invaluable in certain situations, keeping accident claims or moving violations off your record. (See “Dash cams: What you need to know.”)
