    I got a dash cam from a relative at Christmas. It's not an expensive one. Around £40/£50 I think but it seems ok. It records in 720p rather than full HD but it's decent enough.

    Here's a couple of minutes footage if anyone is interested.

    They will either clear u of all blame or hang u. I've got a mate who put his foot down as he came up to the traffic lights on orange. Went thro on red and hit the car that was at the junction on his left. Completely me mates fault as the dash cam proved

    The Russians love their dash cams! Loads of Russian dash cam footage on YouTube.

    Not sure about battery life. I've got mine plugged into one of the lighter sockets and it turns on and automatically starts recording when I turn the van on.

    Can't believe I've just sat and watched the footage, how sad am I but I would like to say that on this occasion Mr Adams 0211 I'm afraid you've failed your test. Cutting the corner on the first mini roundabout. (we have the evidence)

    Russians drivers are nutters, no wonder they need dash cam.

    Maybe me having a dash cam isn't such a good idea after all!

    I'm not even going to lie, I take that roundabout like that at least five times a day.
