      Thankfully, I have not been in an accident in quite some time but I bought a Front and rear Dash Cam for my vehicle for reasons such as this. The main reason I bought one is for when im parked and away from my vehicle. My example is when my friends and I went to Darien Lake for a concert (Disturbed, Saint Asonia and Breaking Benjamin) we had some fun in the park first and upon coming back to the car to put our stuff in there, the bumper was all messed up from a guy in a RAM pickup truck running his tire against the bumper. Thankfully, there were 2 witnesses that reported it prior to this and we waited 2 hours for police to show up, (They had an incident at Darien Lake where 2 parents left their kid at the park. Dropped him off and just left) but, they had the guys license plate info and it got taken care of by their insurance.

      After that, I decided to get a Megellan Front and Rear Dash Camera which also worked when the car was off to record 24/7. Nothing has happened since then but I do have a peace of mind now and having a dash cam is great for just recording dumb drivers as well. Or close encounters with car destroying assholes. (deer) Happy I got a Dash Cam system.

      +brotherscro Dashcams in Croatia are allowed
      . Just have to be aware for privacy regulations, Also certain objects like country borders should not be recorded.
      I've never been or ever want to go to Croatia but a simple google search might help instead of the lies you post online. I guess ignorance is bliss.

      Here in Croatia it's actually illegal to use dashcams :( Even if you have evidence on dashcam that it's not your fault for accident or something else it can't be admitted as evidence
      Stupid laws

      Dash cams are cheap. The people that still don't have dash cams are probably the ones that do the hit and runs... they don't need self incriminating evidence. lol

      Here's another tip: Don't sweat the small stuff. Sometimes, it's worth letting a minor accident go. It would be more hassle and expense than the damage is worth to get insurance involved. A friend hit somebody's rusty beater and gave the guy $100 for the trouble. The other guy was more than happy with that arrangement. His truck was already rusty and dented from work and he wasn't going to get professional bodywork done anyway. If you're both okay with dropping it, that's a fine solution.

      Scotty I work in insurance and you hit the nail on the head. All excellent points, especially getting a police report and not letting the tow truck drivers take it to their own shop or tow yard. They charge outrageous storage fees.

      Preferably, take a video. If the driver who caused the accident says anything stupid, you have proof. If the driver who caused the accident doesn't want to stay around to wait for the police, you have proof. And, always record the other drivers license plate, as well as damages to your car and his/hers. Do that immediately after the accident. And, yes, invest in a good dash cam camera. Stay away from those TV advertised ones for $19.99, they're pieces of junk! Buy a good dash cam camera, it's worth the investment.

      Good idea to have a high quality dash cam system in the car! It is best for the dash cam to have a GPS built in. This way you have the time of day, the date, and the exact location of the accident. The videos can be used as legal proof of the facts.

      Insurance companies are a scam! My mother helped out a lady who was stopped on the freeway with four kids. She drove them to the nearest payphone and went on her way. Couple months later she finds out shes being sued by the very same lady claiming my mother ran into her car. Insurance company decided it was cheaper to pay the woman off than to fight it. And we wonder nowadays why there are so many sleazy people.

      One day I was in the left lane and a gal in the middle lane wanted to avoid a traffic light so she darted into my lane and hit her brakes so she wouldn't miss the driveway to the parking lot she was planning to cut through.
      Bamm, She got spun around 430 degrees. The cops came and the cop was able to figure out what happened and wrote the most elegantly simple report naming her as the responsible party. It is common for people to try to cut that corner.

      Later, her insurance company sent out an investigator and she cried and modified her story and had him convinced and so he tried to hammer on me and I wasn't having any of their BS. So, they sent me a statement form implying that I had to fill it out "in detail" "please give every detail you can think of...."

      Where my statement was supposed to start I wrote in "Please see officer Xxxxxxx'x report, report number xxxxxxxxx. and sent it in. I never heard another word from them. they want you to give them a ton of detail that they can pick apart and , no matter what it actually says, they will claim it proves you are at fault.
