Reasons Why Dash Cams Have Become So Popular in 2022

Introduction

At first, the dashcams were only used in the vehicles of traffic control and law enforcement agencies to reduce the violation of law and correctly identify the culprit. However, Dashcams have now become a widely adopted technology inside vehicles. The global dashboard camera market is predicted to increase from $3.46 billion in 2021 to $11.48 billion by 2028. The principal reason for this hike is that a dash cam can give a variety of benefits for both commercial and regular drivers, and can even make driving safer in a lot of aspects.

Over time, people have discovered that the installation of dashboard cameras has been a positive addition to their vehicles. 

Reasons that have made dash cams so popular

The dashcam has become more and more popular gadget to have inside vehicles no matter private or public. Below are some attractive features listed that dashcams offer. 

1. Hassle-Free Law Enforcement and Police Encounters

Dashcams can record the whole journey inside as well as outside of the vehicle nonstop. This leads to a lower crime ratio or at least better law enforcement. If there happens any car accident in the surroundings, it is highly likely that the dash cams must have recorded it. The video recording will then play a critical role in the inquiry process because most courts permit dashcam footage as a piece of evidence. 

If someone is being charged with a ticket due to some misunderstanding, dashcam footage can be helpful in challenging that ticket. 

2. Effortless Accountability

Placing dashcams facing inwards or outwards is equally beneficial for road safety. In public transport, facing the dashcam inside the vehicle helps monitor passengers. Knowing that they are being recorded, passengers are less likely to involve in any criminal activity and anyone violating the law can be easily identified.  

The same applies to the driver. Pointing the dashcam towards the outside can help monitor reckless driving patterns. Drivers who do not respect the traffic signals and create chaos on the road can be held accountable with the dashcam footage. The audio recording feature in dashcams also enables the law enforcement agencies to comprehend more about the scenario. 

3. Emergency SOS

Often times on long road trips or traveling long distances, phone signals drop, and the chances to get in touch with anyone are scarce. This might be inconvenient for people traveling alone at night time or people with some medical conditions. In such a scenario, a minor inconvenience can escalate into a big issue, and not being able to contact anyone can cause fatality. Dashcams have been developed to be smart enough to monitor the idle activity of the driver and contact the emergency services in the near vicinity. The added precise positioning system of the dashcams is the reason why a large number of people install dashcams in their parents' vehicles.   

4. Eliminates Insurance Fraud

Only a person who has been a victim of fraudulent financial claims can relate to the misery that it causes. Dashboard cameras footage is evidence strong enough to back you up in a courtroom no matter how strong the claim the opposite party simulates. This mostly happens both ways. Sometimes the insurance companies refuse to pay off the loss of someone who deserves it and sometimes people make fabricate their claim over the insurance money which causes the insurance companies a huge loss. Purchasing a dash cam to prevent such massive fraud is definitely not a bad investment. 

5. More Discipline on Roads

It automatically leads to better behavior when drivers and passengers know they are being recorded. Studies show that more than half f the people surveyed agreed that they would behave better if they knew they were being recorded by dashcams which included drivers as well. This concludes that dashcams not only prevent illegal activities but also help control chaos and road rage.  

6. Better Control with Smart Tools

Dashboard cameras also come with a lot of smart features made possible with Artificial Intelligence and Computer Vision. Monitoring road conditions, indicating the blindspots, alerting drowsy drivers, remote access to the footage, smart security while parking, etc are some of the compelling features that have hiked up the number of dashboard camera users in such a short amount of time. 

7. Incredible Quality

Dashboard cameras are used while driving mainly so unless the quality and image stability is not incredible the footage is nearly useless. The main target of dashcam manufacturers is to make sure the image quality is as outstanding as possible and the resulting footage is not shaky at all. This is the reason why dash cams are preferred to capture stunning road trips and can identify number plates, faces, and other landmarks easily. 

Conclusion

Apart from the above-mentioned reasons, dashboard cameras companies have made footage access effortless and most of the dashcams can be controlled directly from one's smartphone. 

With the AI-assisted smart voice control feature, dashcams can be managed even more easily and do not divert the driver's attention throughout the journey at all. Not only for the driver, but dashcams are also a holy grail for parents. They can keep an eye on their children and have the peace of mind that they are driving safely.    

By now, it should be clear that Dash Cams are gaining popularity not only because they are the latest hype, but because of their technological practicality and functionality. They provide cutting-edge security and protection that effortlessly resolves basic scenarios while driving that might otherwise cost you a lot of resources that could have been better spent.
