The blog this week is about the importance of making sure that you have correctly installed your dash cam. If not, you face the possibility of a fine and penalty points on your licence.  Read on to find out more: 

It is of paramount importance that you, the motorist ensures you have correctly installed, positioned or integrated your add-on technology to your Volvo Servicing or Toyota Servicing, and that you have notified the proper authorities where necessary – ie insurance company.

The dashboard camera (dash cam), is becoming increasingly popular in this technology laden era we live in. The purpose of them is to record road incidents and accidents. Not just our own but other road users in front of us. To ensure that you have correctly installed this device you must ensure that the dash cam is fixed behind the rear-view mirror to ensure it doesn’t obstruct your view while capturing both lanes of the road ahead. The power lead must be fitted around the edge of the windscreen not left dangling down. Basically your view of the road must remain perfectly clear. Your insurance may refuse to pay out in the event of an accident if it is found that your vision is impaired by the incorrect fitting of your dashboard camera or that there were wires obstructing your view. If you are in any doubt or require assistance about the correct installation feel free to pop along to your local independent garage for assistance. Happy Safe Motoring Folks!
