Will a Dash Cam Reduce Car Insurance Premiums? – ConsumerReports.org

There currently aren’t any insurers in the U.S. that will give you a discount for having a dash cam, although insurance companies in other countries might. But for between $50 and $200, these devices can still be a great tool for drivers.

“Dash cams are very useful for recording interactions with the police, capturing hit and runs, and watching what happens while your car is parked,” explains Keith Barry, Consumer Reports’ autos editor. “For example, if you come out to your car and find your sideview mirror’s been knocked off, you could just go to your dash cam and see the plate of the vehicle that did it.”
