Is it a good idea to get a truck dash cam videos?
In recent years, truck accidents have occurred frequently. Heavy vehicles, including earthmoving trucks, container trucks, mixer trucks and other large freight motor vehicles, have become "big trouble car" and caused widespread concern. So how dangerous is the "big trouble car"? Let's look at some data.
According to the data released, between 2008 and 2012, commercial trucks that accounts 7.8% of China's motor vehicle market, were caused 27.7% of fatal traffic accidents.
The characteristics of large trucks in terms of material, structure, and dynamic performance determine that they are indeed prone to accidents. It is made of high-strength steel, the bodyweight is relatively large, plus the load, the total weight is often more than ten, or even dozens of tons. Due to its large mass and high inertia, large trucks are often difficult to brake and are prone to brake failure. In addition, the large truck body is wider, the turning radius is large, and the center of gravity is high. When turning, problems such as scratching and rollover are prone to occur.
Besides weight and volume are relatively large, trucks have a fatal weakness that is the driver has visual blind spots, and technically speaking, the accidents caused by blind spots can be improved through human efforts.
The blind spot of vision can be improved by human means, that is, to install a truck dash cam. The driving recorder, as an instrument for recording related information such as images and sounds on the road, can conveniently help large trucks to eliminate blind spots.

The closer the front camera is mounted to the interior rearview mirror, the better. The centered shooting angle is greater, and the installation near the inner rearview mirror has the least effect on the front view.

The rear camera is mounted directly to the rear of the truck, and the cable is fixed afterward. It can be installed inside or outside the car as needed, and the shooting effect will be better if installed outside while it avoids damage and loss if installed inside.
