Dashcam

If you don't have a dash-cam while driving in Turkey - get one!

Saturday morning I had an accident. Scooter came out of nowhere (or at least I did not see him) and hit my passenger door a glancing blow. He was taken to hospital and released unharmed. Both of us insured and fully licenced, and nobody drunk. Morning spent at police station - all very civilised, police very kind.

Anyway, my car was taken to the garage. I had not seen the camera shots, and, to be honest, I didn't volunteer the evidence immediately although the police saw the camera and asked for the recording asap; I was concerned the video might make it worse for me.

Reviewed the video in the garage. Because I was turning left across his path I was holding my hands up as probably guilty, although I did not have a clue until seeing the tape. But only when we went into slow-mo did we see that he was riding one handed, balancing a box of wood on the seat behind him, holding it with the hand that should have been on the brake; just before impact he was swivelled round looking at the box; a second before he hit me he looks round, but because he was trying to hold the box and steering one-handed, he had nowhere to go.

Police say it will not go to court unless he (scooter man) want to sue. Video evidence probably makes that unlikely. Police have the recording and he is going in today (Sunday) to make a statement.

Get a camera, and use it.

Ian

Re: Dashcam

Very sensible idea Ian and not just in Turkey.

We get the odd drunk driver or minor government official (aka Mafia! - usually in a huge black SUV with darkened windows) that thinks he owns the road and that it is the responsibility of other drivers to get out of his way.

Seems I can get one fitted here for about $20 - Iíll go shopping next week!

Re: Dashcam

I was going to put one in my Duster, halfords have some supply and fit deals on at the moment plus offering interest free credit on kit over £100, Like many new cars my Duster has all around cameras built in, a recording facility would have been an option box I would have ticked had it been available.
I have no inclination to fit my own whatsoever as I am probably too lazy and have zero interest in cars but I will pop to Halfords. so long as they do coffee while you wait.

Cheers for the nudge Ian.

Re: Dashcam

Totally agree, we have one on each car. £30 from Amazon, 30seconds to fit. I even take one back to the UK for a hire car. Glad that you are OK, cars can be fixed.

Re: Dashcam

On the subject of dash cams, we chose to disable the audio functionality. We were concerned that if the footage goes into the hands of the authorities we would not want to be held accountable for what we had been discussing or joking about earlier on the trip.
