So, during my time in trucking I learned (a bit of the hard way) not only to distrust everyone else on the road, but to run a dash cam to document things. I held onto that dash cam after my exit from trucking, but hadn’t taken the time or expended the effort to install it in my car. It’s a small town, right? Surface streets are slow, right? No need to run a dash cam in my little Chevy Spark, right?
Well, after a couple of close calls from people turning across my path with no signal or body language convinced me otherwise. It’s installed and working. It starts itself up when I start the car. And it’s not going anywhere anytime soon.
