Given their usefulness, they should be standard on all vehicles, especially bikes and motorcycles. Not only can the cameras resolve accident causes, they would be invaluable in helping to correct self destructive driving habits. 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,

Forward-looking vehicle cameras have been touted for at least 15 years as solutions to a set of problems that mostly don't exist in the USA. It's one thing to run a dashcam in Russia or Afghanistan, but quite another in a country where the vast majority of drivers are law-abiding.

There are a lot of interesting stories on the internet about drivers having to install vehicle video recorders in their cars because of people that jump intentionally in front of them on pedestrian crossings to swindle money. A lot of similar cases were registered lately and the driver`s only way to prove he is innocent is to install such a recorder in the car, having such a video and presenting it to the judge will prove your innocence if if you've been injured in a car accident.
