My friend that lives in Russia told me interesting stories about people having to install vehicle video recorders because of people that intentionally on pedestrian crossings jump in front of cars to swindle money for them. A lot of similar cases were registered and the driver`s only way to prove he is innocent is to install such recorders. It`s strange that when they were on a vacation in Miami his wife was hit by a car, luckily a trespasser told them what to do if you've been injured in a car accident. The driver did not want to admit it was his fault until another driver presented a video he recorded that proved he was guilty.

Also, if we put a little software behind the camera, we could shut down the vehicle if we detected that the driver was impaired. Just a thought,
