Incredible. Did that help you in terms of settling this legally?

Fortunately the other driver claimed responsibility from the beginning so making a claim was no trouble but when her insurance called me they began asking questions like "so...were there any witnesses there?" or " was there anybody with you?" but as soon as I told them I got it on camera they told me" thank you for calling blah blah insurance....". That's why I got this camera because a couple months before this accident, a woman pulled out in front of me when I was driving down an access road there insurance said she was not at fault because there wasn't enough evidence saying so. So they denied my claim. As of today the camera still works. I've read some comments where people say the memory card doesn't cycle over old footage when full. I haven't run into that problem because every once in a while I put the card in my laptop, check a few of the recent videos to make sure its recording video and audio with out issues, then I delete the videos. What I would suggest doing is transferring them to your computer then delete from card.

Same thing happened to me but I broadsided her. No injuries but her car was a mess.

The insurance companies will use "any" excuse to deny your claim if you are hit by "their" insured driver. A guy backed into my car in a parking lot hitting and denting the rear bumper, I got his information and filed a claim with his insurance company. They made it very difficult for me, every time I called I gave them the claim number and was given a different agent who didn't know anything about the claim and there wasn't anything on the computer showing I had called before. I had to start from scratch everytime I called and explain what happened, I guess they were hoping I would get tired and just let it go. They wanted proof that he did it, as they said he told them he didn't do it and didn't know what I was talking about. Lucky for me a lady saw what happened and had taken some pictures and I was able to locate her and she sent me the pictures. I scanned them a emailed them to the insurance agent as I was on the phone with her, She put me on hold and called the guy up that hit me and all of a sudden his memory came back and she apologized for the misunderstanding and sent me my check.

Wow I drive for grubhub, and postmates in 1 week I was hit 3 times the last lady side swiped me and said she was sorry she was looking for an address. Then when her insurance called they claimed I hit her. I was like if I was moving I would of hit the car in front of me. she didn't even stop until I go out of my car and yelled hey you hit me!So I am buying on for the front and the back. For safety and security well worth it.Thank you for sharing !

There is another camera that I use now because this one seemed rather bulky and the resolution is not that great. The camera I use now costs about 25 bucks. I'll post a link later when I get out of work. When the camera is not in use try to cover the lens because it appears that the sun damages either the lens or components causing a blurry image.
