21 January 2014 Motorists coping with rising holiday traffic levels face the increased possibility of unexpected situations that may require detailed examination later.

More Motorists Escalate Need for Extra Diligence
Visiting family and friends during the holidays can be fun, but with many relying on their car to complete the journey, it can also be a potentially hazardous time to travel. Due to the higher number of vehicles on the road, drivers are urged to take extra precautions. Installing a car video recorder (also known as dashboard camera or dash cam) has been shown to promote safe driving and potentially lower accident rates; in addition to providing reliable evidence should the worst happen.
Four Tips on Choosing the Right Car Video Recorder
Here are four major features and benefits to consider when choosing a car video recorder:
1. Enhanced Night Recording
On-road incidents can happen at any moment. For this reason, a car video recorder must have the ability to record at any time of the day or night.
2. Wide Angle View, High Quality Lens & Full HD Recording
Involved individuals trying to establish the cause of an accident will benefit from more clear and detailed video evidence.
3. Impact Detection
Deleted files cannot be recovered easily. Impact Detection is an important safety measure that ensures videos recorded in a collision are not lost.
4. Instant Sharing
Download and share recorded videos with insurance companies and police using an Apple or Android device thanks to wireless connectivity.
