So, one day after I publish a post describing two recent hit-and-run car accidents, someone hits my husband's car, and leaves the scene.
My husband was not IN the car at the time, so even if he'd HAD a dash cam, it wouldn't have done any good because it would have been switched off.
But in this case, two eye witnesses got the license plate # and a description of the offending vehicle as it left the scene. So that's worth observing: eyes are also very, very good things to have around. Eyes can be made to work very well in situations where dash cams really can't get the job done. Point noted.
