Dash Cam Success – Easiest way to get cheaper auto insurance

Dash Cam Success – Easiest way to get cheaper auto insurance

I got rear-ended at some traffic lights this week, and I was absolutely dreading having to call my car insurance. I’ve not had many incidents, but the last bump I had was a complete nightmare – the person who did it tried to claim I was at fault, and the car insurance company I was with at the time really didn’t want to pay out. I must admit, I was a bit worried this time because I’ve had cheap car insurance no deposit. I know that shouldn’t affect the coverage, but I was in such a panic I started to worry that maybe it would. Luckily, dear wife pointed out that I had a dash cam in the rear window – it was her idea, she’d read about it somewhere and insisted we get one for the front and one for the back.

So we check the footage, and guess what? The idiot behind me was on their phone! Sent a copy of the footage through with my claim, and it was so easy. Proof that they were at fault, not me, and their registration number neatly captured on film. Despite my worries about whether opting for the cheaper plan was going to come back to bite me, it was easier than I’d remembered it being and I’ve got the car booked in next week to fix the dents.

Of course, something had to go wrong – dear wife pointed out that I spent the next three days driving around without the dash cam in because I forgot to put it back. Good job I’m a bit of a paranoid driver, because those days went without incident. Still, it’s now firmly back in its place (out of view, since they’re not the cheapest piece of equipment).

Overall, I’m pretty pleased with how this went- I was having nightmares remembering the last time, and it was just so much smoother than I remember it being! Definitely will be sticking with this policy, and the dash cams, and dear wife’s advice in future. Except when it comes to buying a car – she’d have me choose it on color. She might be the organised one, but when it comes to upgrading, I’ll pick the type and she can choose the paint job.

Who has the cheapest auto insurance? People with Driver-less Cars

Who has the cheapest auto insurance? People with Driver-less Cars

Imagine getting into your car, giving it an address and then just sitting back while it takes you there.

I know what you’re thinking. ‘Why don’t you just take a cab, or call an Uber?’ I’ll tell you why. Because taking cabs everywhere is expensive, and it leads to unnecessary human interaction. Which I prefer to keep to a minimum.

But speaking of expensive (or more to the point, not expensive). Do you know who has the cheapest auto insurance? Well, pretty soon it’s going to be the owners of driver-less cars, or people with very cheap car insurance no deposit

As the laziest human on the planet, if there’s one thing I want. It’s a car that allows me to literally just sit there and do nothing while it takes me from a to b. You know like a taxi but without the awful small talk part.

Imagine driving into someone’s parked car and being able to say it wasn’t your fault, and not be lying. It’s my dream honestly. I usually have to just drive away before anyone sees what I’ve done. Not that I’m hoping to hit another car at all. It would just be nice not to be the one to blame for once.

But the good news isn’t just for irresponsible drivers like myself. Since the vast majority of accidents are due to human error. It’s good news all round. Driver-less cars take away the most dangerous aspect of road travel. The driver. And replace it with technology. Because we all know that never goes wrong.

The only downside I can see to this new automated development is that for me personally. I see bouts of road rage. Mixing with the kind of rage I get when my computer is running slow or my wifi won’t connect. To form some kind of super-rage in my future.
