It has become quite clear that a dashcam can be useful in many situations, and not necessarily just for providing proof of who’s to blame in case of an accident.
Take this incident, for example. It took place this past Monday in Hayward, California, and thanks to the cammer, we’re pretty sure that the authorities can proceed as they see fit. Not that it was a high crime or anything, yet stealing anything, be it a candy bar or, in this case, equipment (most likely a chainsaw) is still stealing.
The clip was posted to Reddit, with the uploader stating that the incident was recorded by his father who told him he will go back there to the road workers and “give them the video copy”.
The video is very clear and you can make out both the license plate of the Nissan as well as the facial features of the man in the white t-shirt. It’s rather unfortunate that no road workers were guarding their equipment at that specific time, but to be fair, it’s hard to predict that something like this can happen in broad daylight.
So, next time you feel like doing something reckless and/or illegal, even if you can’t spot a security camera anywhere, just remember that you might be recorded by another vehicle’s dashcam.
