Russia – A Culture Of Dash Cams

Dash Cam Vehicle Protection

In Russia, it is very common for drivers to have a forward facing dash cam fitted in their vehicle. The road conditions are perilous, the traffic is heavily congested and road rage is a very frequent occurrence. Roadside fighting a daily sight.

The Russian courts don’t like verbal claims. They do, however, like to send people to jail for battery and property damage if there’s definite video proof.

Dash Cam Scam Foiled In Russia
Dash Cam Foils Russian ‘Crash for Cash’ Scam

Dash-cam footage is the only real way to support your claims in the Russian court of law. Forget witnesses.

Sometimes drivers reverse or bump their pre-dented car into yours. It used to be a mob thing with the accident-staging specialists working in groups. After the ‘collision’ the offending driver, often an elderly driver, is confronted by a crowd of ‘witnesses’ who psychologically pressure and intimidated them to pay up cash on the spot.

An increasing scenario is pedestrians jumping under your car at a crossing, laying on the asphalt, simulating a badly hurt pedestrian waiting for that cop conveniently parked nearby.

Drivers are now fighting back and protecting themselves against these unlawful individuals by installing a dash cam. Would be scammers are quickly silenced once drivers point to their forward facing camera and say that the whole incident is being recorded. In the UK video evidence from a RoadHawk dash cam has been used by the Metropolitan Police in Operation Catcher to bust an organised ‘crash for cash’ ring estimated to have caused over 120 incidents.

RoadHawk dash cam systems are now endorsed and recommended by Adrian Flux, who offer their customers up to a 15% discount on their premium if they have a RoadHawk dash cam fitted to their vehicle. For more information contact Adrian Flux for a quote on 0800 369 8950.
