Fiesta hit my WK. Fiesta didn't fare well!

This Fiesta changed lanes to avoid a slow pickup truck that just did a U-turn. $220 of damage to the wheel of my WK. I'm sure a lot more in damage to the Ford!

I keep meaning to get a dash cam. Did the driver try to blame you?

No, surprisingly he knew it was his fault. Iím also lucky he had insurance. A lot of drivers down here donít.
I got a dash cam after a driver backed into my Jeep, then she lied to her insurance company and said that I hit her! A dash cam is cheap insurance IMHO.

They're lucky there wasn't anyone oncoming or that could've been a lot worse.


For dashcams check out dashcamtalk.com, lots of model specs and sample videos. I've got the Voifo A118C or A119 in all my vehicles and they work great.

The Viofo A119. It's a decent camera and not very expensive.

Yes, he was lucky there wasn't much traffic. It was at 8 am on a Saturday, so very little traffic.
I have the A119. It's been a good camera. The one in my wife's truck keeps shutting down and restarting, so I'm looking at replacing that one soon.

I just got my front clip ripped off my 08 WK by a driver that barreled through a 4 way stop at about 30MPH. It was a Chevy Spark and I hardly felt anything EXCEPT she triggered both airbags which will probably cause the insurance company to total my immaculate vehicle.
