To get a rear view dash cam?
PoisonousSmurf · 10/07/2017 16:59
Fed up of all the twatty drivers who come up really close behind me and gesticulate, just because I'm going at the speed limit.
I'm going to get a tiny camera to go in the back (have one in front already) and also I'll be adding a 'smile you're on dashcam' sticker.
Do you think that would enrage them even more, or make them back off?

I doubt they'll notice or even care tbh, if they think it's ok to tailgate.
However at least a dash cam will be useful, incase of an unnecessary accident. So if it makes you feel safer driving then definitely go for it.
If anyone tailgates me I usually slow down so much that they either back off, or over take me. I always have my DS in the car when I drive, and there's no chance I'll risk them causing an accident and injuring my DS.

I hate them. My DP has one in the front of his car and I can't stand it. In my opinion it just adds to the whole blame culture thing.
Also I was stuck in a jam behind a bloke with a rear dash cam in last week. Stationary, behind him for about 10 mins with the camera pointing at me just feet away. It made me really uncomfortable.

We've got them. When someone blocked the road and threatened my DH we were able to take them to the police.
Also when someone broke into a local shop and then ran to their getaway car just down our road, they were caught on our camera as we were going out and have been caught.
I agree about feeling a bit spied on, but I'd rather have cctv cameras everywhere and catch all the criminals.
