Search for YOUR REG on youtube

22
Found 21st Feb 2016
I have a DVR camera in my car and have used it 3 time in issues one of which was a police case, concluded in my favour just because of my evidence.

I was watching a video on youtube and at the end I saw this statement 'Search for YOUR REG on youtube'.

I thought it is a great idea as when I upload videos traffic related I don't criticise the third party just use the location & Reg of vehicle (IE. crossroad in town & XXX111) leaving the viewer to make up their minds of fault or road rage.

Why not search your reg of even your other halves! see what videos may have been uploaded!

So so sad.......
OP, you're not the law and neither are other people. Insurance companies and Police will settle in line with the law. Peoples opinions are irrelevant tosh if legally the persons in the clear.
would think it's against the law!

The people that upload all these videos spend half their time driving around known hazard spots praying something happens, which itself is no less dangerous than the drivers they film. It's very rarely a random video someone has just taken unknowingly appears. Half the time the people uploading the video just seem pathetic and it's about the only videos I dislike on YouTube if I come across them as always some coke head hungry for fame trying to prove a non existing point driving about like a psychopath with twelve cameras mounted around the car/helmet as to not miss any action then crying innocence and assault. Yawn. Clearly don't have much to do when you're concerned about outing people making mistakes and causing them grief by encouraging people to search friend and family number plates! Can only imagine when these people who regularly record videos get banned for dangerous driving they'll be sat up the top of a double decker bus with a blooming helmet cam on waiting for someone to go through a red light! oO

I’m not against people uploading dashcam videos, 'compilation' videos aren't too bad, but there is as you mention, a nasty little trend lately of people doing it for the YouTube fame/potential ad revenue, or using a minor road error as an excuse for ‘road rage’ and purposely making the situation more dangerous than it actually is which they see as justified and making them a 'good driver'.

It’s marked quite easily by the increase in engine revs and the fact the car is suddenly driven at the opposing driver who has ‘offended’ the dashcam driver into a torrent of horn use despite there being half a dozen options available to driver to avoid the situation altogether.

Whilst I'm not particularly enamoured of dashcam voyeurism, and I don't have one in my car, I think that there are times where they could be useful; insurance companies like things to be a 50/50, so a cam can remove any doubt.

Insurance companies don't like things 50/50 when it means the innocent side are paying out their own pocket, so that's the first mistake in your comment. Although i fully agree they can now help as evidence in claims against other people but don't recommend anybody use it for the crap OP mentions and the YouTube channels about. It's sad and pathetic because it's people acting on a moral pedestal. Hence my comment about people being allowed to be a berk as long as it's within the borders of the law.

They wouldn't be innocent if they settled it 50/50... Just saying.

I do agree that a lot of dash cam drivers are going out their way to cause trouble though.

These cyclists snitch videos just prove that the biker himself is asking for trouble.

Just because it's settled 50/50, doesn't mean an innocent party hasn't been wronged. Just means there was insufficient evidence to hold the guilty fully responsible. It's like a murderer walking free or even a rapist because not enough evidence. Does it mean they're innocent?

How would you know they're a murderer or a rapist in the first place if there's no evidence?
And yes, it does mean they're innocent. The justice system works on an "innocent until proven guilty" basis... If there's no evidence you can not prove someone is X, therefore you can not prove they are guilty, thus they are innocent unless shown otherwise...

I said insufficient evidence to prove the crime. Doesn't prove they're innocent at all. It just means the justice system didn't have the requisite level of evidence to hold them responsible and put them in prison. Surely you don't think every person that walks free of a crime is innocent or you really that naive?
This is getting that cold I hope the OP has an ice cream van to put his dash cam on oO
I see where the OP is coming from, but you can just do that on Google, as YouTube results will come up to.

But a dash cam is a really useful piece of technology. I once had a claim where I pulled out a junction and hit a motorbike. Not at a fast speed no injuries, but the law states my fault. The road was pitch black, couldn't see the person coming as they didn't have no lights on. After court it went in my favour and it was stated that without the footage I would of been at fault as no proof they didn't have lights on. (Turned out the young lad only got licience the day before)

The roads I drive on a day to day basis I see many near misses/ have them also. A dash am footage can help the innocent and penalise the guilty where otherwise it is only one persons word against another.

Also to add these people who (whoever said it above) claim to drive around then post on YouTube they don't get ad revenue unless they are having 100,000+ views and most dash cam footage don't have that type of views as most footage is just rubbish anyhow.

I think I need a 7.5 tonner with and patio doors fitted (both sides and extra staff) to get the punters in even quicker than I though!
Looking for a 20 toner! later today. You think Duncan Bannatyne started with one one cream van in the Boro.....I seem to be moving even faster....well I hope not physically as you could not make the purchase as you would have to be on a Segway.....They too are not legal....another story. Why not a Sinclair C5?
Ah Clive and his washing machine engine.... think how fast it would have went with a Dyson lol

Insurance companies like things 50/50 because it's an easy option and affects both sides NCBs; they're not bothered about who is innocent or not - that's a moral pedestal they don't sit on.
