Benefits of video evidence

It is a fact that video recordings from your vehicle can be used as evidence in legal procedures. It can be extremely helpful when you become a part of the road accident that you clearly had nothing to do. However, it can be very hard to prove it in many scenarios and that’s when video recordings come in handy.

Video recordings can actually save you and win a trial if you get to one. Obviously, the quality of the video is important and the actual accident needs to be clearly seen in the video, in order to prove your innocence.

The actual use of video recordings can be also used in traffic sign warning. Additionally, it can be set up to view the video recordings in your Raspberry Pi touch screen.

Video recordings of your driving can also help to catch something you might want to see again or you missed. It can be something very simple and beautiful at the same time such as sunrise, sunset and/or amazing landscape.

You can also rewind if something has happened on the road and you simply missed it or you are not sure if you have seen it correctly.
