When it comes to travel and ways to get around, many people around the world opt to use a bicycle or a motorcycle as their means of transportation.
There are many reasons why riders may choose a motorcycle or bike over some other type of personal vehicle or public transportation or even a ride or ride-giving app or service. It’s better for the environment (particularly if your bike runs on pedal power, not gas) and it also can be convenient.
Riding bikes can even let you get to your destination faster when it comes to highly populated, congested cities and urban areas. That being said, having a helmet-mounted camera is becoming more popular than ever among cyclists.
Why should you use a camera and have it on your person while you’re riding? Here are a few good reasons why you should use a camera.
Have evidence that supports you.
If you are in an accident but there is no video footage or witnesses of what happens, it may be up to site reconstruction or accident forensics to back you up. Having video footage that is admissible in court may be able to back you up in a way that nothing or no one else really can.
Prove someone is at fault if you have been in a motorcycle accident.
A lawsuit or court case may end coming down in the end to who was truly at fault. Accounting for the fact that you may be in an accident in the future means that you can be prepared and have the video camera and the evidence that proves who is at fault. It could help you win your case, all for a few dollars spent on your part.
Have something to protect you in cases of road rage.
The camera will be recording and is an active deterrent to any person that is having a road rage moment. While it’s not totally preventative, it will reduce the odds that someone tries something– and if they do, you have video. Without having to go for your phone to use the camera, so that you can call the authorities if you need backup and have proof of what occurred.
It’s legal protection and back up.
A picture says a thousand words, so a video must say at least ten thousand. Sometimes it’s hard to tell who’s lying or exaggerating or whether someone is downplaying or not being truthful about things in order to gain or avoid punishment. As they say, the camera doesn’t lie, and it provides valuable legal protection and a backup for your story.
Have proof that could get you out of a ticket or false claim.
That video could show that you were not speeding at the time of a crash, therefore you were not at fault. Or that you shouldn’t get a speeding ticket. False claims can be proved wrong thanks to footage, so be sure that you have it on hand for when you need it by getting a helmet cam or other dash cam today.
