Dashcam?! It Would Never Happen to Me!

Seemingly endless parades of dashcam footage are posted all over the Internet. Places like Russia and China are rampant with hordes of horrifying, hilarious and mystifying videos portraying once in a lifetime events all captured on these tiny devices that are placed on the windshield or dashboard of vehicles.  People are into it. There are sites devoted to showing the latest and greatest capture of dashcam video.  There are sites created that spend hours of work and fluxes of posts that dissect and embellish each particle and article of every dashcam ever created. They are out there and people are actively posting regularly. So why hasn’t the US shown a greater presence in the dashcam culture as of yet?

Russian Meteor

Places like Russia and China are notorious for the reckless drivers, corrupt policing, and crazy antics on the road.  I guess, in America people are certain that they are better drivers, much more responsible and quite frankly we are invincible on the road.  When you look at the statistics, which are quite rampant all over the Internet, you will see that the United States does in fact have less tragic vehicle accidents per capita then Russia, but what we do not realize is that the numbers are still staggering with more than 32,000 deaths per year.  American drivers are definitely playing a huge role in “bad driving” and reckless behavior on the road but are not as widely strewn across YouTube for the world to see because of the simple fact that they are not recording it!

 Car DashCam

True, American drivers may not regularly experience the unfortunate event w here someone throws themselves in front of their car to collect insurance money or getting falsely accused by a police officer and/or extorting bribes like the widespread accounts of this in Russia.  According to Dash Cam Talk, “…since most people have insurance and police are relatively honest in the US, they may not believe there is a need.  While in countries like Russia, many people don’t have insurance and police are more corrupt.  It has become a necessity there.”  Another fact is that in Russia the policies are quite different.

Pedestrian Throwing Themselves at a Car

Pedestrian Throwing Themselves at a Car

The possibility of insurance fraud does exist in America; in fact, it is costing drivers upwards of 5 billion dollars in higher premiums because of it.  What about when the police refuse to get involved in a non-injury accident and the battle turns into a “he said, she said”? Just think how important that short video clip would be to any driver in the case of someone trying to fabricate an accident or wrongly blaming the other driver so he or she can collect the insurance or cash on demand.  The attitude that, “it would never happen to me,” will not hold validity when unforeseen circumstances take over.  Of course this may not be enough of an incentive for most drivers on the road to get a dashcam, not until something like this does actually happen to them!

Car Accidents

So why not take advantage of the dashcam and the safety features it has to offer?  The PAPAGO! brand definitely has the market cornered on safety features at the moment.  The belief that these high-tech devices can promote safe driving will only be evident if people actually use them.  We cannot gather data on something that does not exist.  The higher end model of the PAPAGO! brand has a lane departure warning system (LDWS), front collision warning system (FCWS), Stop and Go, which tells the driver with a beep to “Go” once the car in front of them has proceeded to drive after being stopped for more than 10 seconds, light reminder warning,  speed camera detection, and driver fatigue alarm that you set when taking a long drive.  The idea that drivers everywhere will begin to follow the speed limit, stop running red lights, and pay attention to the road is ideally what the dashcam revolution hopes to achieve.

Speed Camera Warning-Papago P2 Pro

Speed Camera Warning-Papago P2 Pro

The most noteworthy thing we can say about dashcams is that they do provide footage of once in a lifetime events. Meteorites in Russia, bullying police officers, yes even in the US (nydailynews.com), and even good deeds (theblaze.com), plus the horrific, funny, and wild events that happen without any notice.  With the voluminous accounts you find on the Internet of these outrageous events it is no surprise that Americans’ interest in dashcams has risen significantly in the past few years. Although the laws to date on dashcams in America are relatively vague, with the rise in popularity of these devices, lawmakers will soon need to adjust and create laws that will cover any and all circumstances. Thanks to our friends at Dash Cam Talk we were referred to examine the Google Trends listing on dashcam’s.

Another key niche market that should explore the benefits of dashcams is truck drivers and fleet managers.  For an individual or manager of trucks that are always on the road, the security that a dashcam can provide in a variety of situations is worth the small investment.  There are truck-driving forums devoted to discussing the perils and harrowing experiences they live through as part of their profession (www.truckingtruth.com).  Discussion threads often cover the advantage that dashcams give to the driver when they are faced with life’s unexpected events.  Evidence shows that a huge majority of truck drivers would like to have a dashcam facing outwards on their dash to capture other drivers’ antics on the road and protect them from insurance fraud.  Fleet managers could take advantage of this as well by being able to monitor the drivers route and driving habits as well as to protect their drivers against other dishonest individuals on the road.

Truck Driver Getting Cut Off

Many articles written on dashcams keep stating that Americans are running late to the game. We have the technology available to us and we are just now getting to know how the dashcam’s functions and building a list of reasons why everyone could benefit from owning one.  With the huge strides in research and design dashcam companies, with PAPAGO! Inc. being one of the big players, will give to consumers the access to a variety of dashcams that appeal to their particular lifestyle.  Purchasing a quality made dashcam is available to the masses in North America and people everywhere should do their research and find the right dashcam for them.

The design of PAPAGO! GoWatch 770 Multi-Sport GPS Watch is very modish which is suitable and great for both sports and casual wears. This sports watch uses a Mitsubishi special panel surface hardness of up to 6H, making it more scratch resistant. The accuracy of its GPS is highly commendable as it has worked consistently, even when you are in the forest where some GPS systems have difficulty. Its large display is beneficial because it makes it very easy to look on the screen at anytime in order to monitor your pace. The screen is large enough to read it but not too large as to be uncomfortable for distance running.

This device is waterproof and meets the IPX6/IPX7 waterproof standard. With such standard, it supports you to keep going with your training enthusiasm regardless of any weather condition. The battery is also powerful and long-lasting. Charging time goes approximately around 2.5 Hrs. If the the GPS is turned on, the battery can last for up to 12 hours and if on standby, can last for up to 20 days.
