The short answer is, yes. If you see someone on the road driving recklessly—whether they are texting, inebriated, overly aggressive, or otherwise—you should report it by calling 9-1-1. However, there are a few things to keep in mind when calling.
Can you report reckless driving with dash cam?
The dash-cam reporting system is designed for reporting driving incidents, but it shouldnt be used to report collisions.
How long do you have to report dangerous driving?
If you didnt exchange details, you must report the incident to the Police (whether or not the collision was your fault) within 24 hours. If someone is injured, you need to inform us within 30 days.
What do you do after a missed car accident?
First off, when its safe to do so, pull over and turn off your engine. You may need some time to compose yourself; unless theres a medical emergency, dont let other drivers or passengers rush you. This may be as simple as taking a few deep breaths or counting to 10 to calm down.
Can you get in trouble for near miss car accident?
No. If there is no collision there is no need to report. They may complain about careless driving but generally the police dont act upon that. They may lie and say there was a collision.
Do Dashcams record when parked?
In short, parking mode enables your camera to stay on and recording while your parked. The lower cost dash cameras will simply stay on and record continuously, compared to the more premium cameras that have a dedicated parking mode which is activated after a period of inactivity, or once the ignition is switched off.
Yes, as part of the Criminal Justice process, and in order to allow the Police to deal with the offender in an appropriate manner, you must provide a statement.
