Re: Hardwiring a dash cam
I work, and have worked in the field of CCTV for 10 years now. Some places like jails, police stations, and casino's, it is legally implied that you will be recorded. No warning is required at these locations. The only place where it is not legal to record, is in employee break areas, restrooms, and locker rooms, but you can legally record the entrance to these locations. The Walmart where I live does NOT have a "video surveillance" warning on the doors due to they are not required to do so. The only time a business is required to give warning, is if they are recording AUDIO... Just like when you speak to any business, they will warn you that "this call may be recorded for training purposes". Did you realize that 99% of ATM machines have cameras in them? They do! I used to install them! And most do not have a warning on them!
With dash cams, you are not specifically recording the person that hit your car, you are recording the actions around your car. You intent is not to get a face shot of the driver of the other car, you are attempting to prove who was at fault, and that is it.
I live in Illinois, just like you do Comics22, and we all know how this state likes to blame the wrong person for being at fault in an accident.
