As the number of car ownership increases, it follows logically that the number of road accidents will also rise.

Based on the Transport Ministry’s website, the data collected from 2010 to 2019 showed that the number of road accidents increased. Conversely, the number of fatalities has seen a steady reduction in those ten years.

From January to September 2022, police statistics revealed that a total of 402,626 road accidents were recorded, which resulted in 4,379 fatalities.

It was a jump from the 255,532 road accidents and 3,324 deaths recorded from the same period in 2021.

Due to the number of road accidents occurring, it’s also wise to have a dashcam in the car to help record evidence in case one gets into an accident.

There have been cases where victims had a hard time seeking justice because they had no evidence.

A recent road accident on 1 April 2023 almost claimed the life of a Twitter user’s father in Johor. Ain (@ainzaabar) shared a dashcam recording that showed a yellow Mini Cooper ramming her father’s car.

The accident caused her father’s car to flip on its side on the road. Ain’s father allegedly said it felt like he was already dead.

Fortunately, the driver of the Mini Cooper admitted his fault while lodging the police report about the accident. He claimed he was looking at Waze when he drove onto the curb and hit Ain’s father’s car.

It was likely that the driver couldn’t refute responsibility because there was a dashcam recording of the incident.

Ain also shared that her father only installed the dashcam less than a year after his friend got into an accident. Unfortunately, his friend did not have proof or a recording of the incident.

Accident cases like these further showed that it’s more important than ever for every driver to have a dashcam in their vehicles for safety purposes.

If you’re looking for a dashcam, here are some highly-rated dashcams in the market so far.
