Yes... in-car DVRs are great investments that can bring returns in many ways.

The embedded video is funny in how the sound is censored out after the collision from 28s onwards :) I bet the poor driver is cursing and swearing away...

Black Lexus SGD5233H. Very clear at 0:27s. Good camera. Go call police and catch that bugger.

Like that also can. Hit & run but for how long in this day and age?

The camera is really clear. Any suggestion for entry level models? Thank you.

I'm using a cheap and small $80 no-brand model that can do 1080 HD that I bought from PC Show last month. Works well, but quite picky about the SD Card. I shoot at 720p to reduce space, but the picture still turns out quite good.

I donno which is more probable - the black Lexus driver was too stunned to stop or hoping to get away by speeding off?

In any case, it was a bad move. Now the Video is all over the internet!

Agree with Imami... Maybe the Lexus was too stunned to stop....

Hopefully he/she turn back....

Lexus run to avoid paying for damages for 2 vehicles.


By the way. I find those driving big cars especially the Merc and nowadays BMW also, very inconsiderate. I have for many many times had to bear with them cutting into my lane suddenly without enough signalling time. It is no surprise what this Lexus did.
