The lives we live today are possible because of the vast and complicated economic system we have built over the millennia.

Recording devices mounted to the dashboard of cars have become quite popular in recent years. Private individuals often upload clips from the recordings made by their “dashcams,” entertaining many a Youtube user. Not only are these videos entertaining, they can be very useful in the case of a car collision to determine exactly what happened – and who’s at fault. The presence of the cameras also seem to have an effect on the behavior of the driver. The state of California has seen a sharp decrease in the rate of car accidents in vehicles installed with a recording device – down by 80%. Many companies with fleets of vehicles have used these recording devices to improve driver performance and definitively determine fault in the case of a collision or other damage. This can save companies a lot of money and headaches. If you have been in an accident involving a big rig, “dashcams” can be used to prove liability in your case.
