Distracted driving can be very dangerous and even prove to be fatal in many cases. Here is a case of distracted driving that shows how distracted driving can cause accidents. Here is a Hyundai Venue, which overturned at a high-speed and still kept the passengers safe.
The video has been recorded from a dashboard camera of a car that was following the Hyundai Venue. The video from Thenkashi – Rajapalayam Road in Tamil Nadu shows a single lane road, which is relatively empty. The Hyundai Venue driver was doing around 40-50 km/h on the road.
In the video, we can see that the car that was recording the video sees the bullock cart and moves towards his right to make space. However, the driver of the Venue does not reacts at all and keeps on driving straight. The left wheel of the Venue hits the wheels of the bullock cart. Since the accident happened at a relatively high-speed, the vehicle loses balance and overturns. However, it stands right back on its wheels after the flip.
There were three passengers inside the vehicle and all of them came out safe. There were no injuries reported by any of the occupants.
The Venue shows minimal signs of damage and even the left A-Pillar, which took the maximum impact when the vehicle turned is intact.
Distracted driving is one of the biggest reasons of accidents in India. There are many accidents that occur due to the driver not paying attention to the road ahead. We have seen numerous accidents where people crash because they were talking on the phone or sending texts.
Dashboard cameras are versatile tools that can be used to record accidents and crimes on public roads. The footage they capture can be crucial evidence in the event of an accident or crime, making the process of filing insurance claims more straightforward. Additionally, high-end dashboard cameras are equipped with motion-detection technology, which can help to capture any tampering attempts on the vehicle.
Investing in a dashboard camera is an excellent way to ensure one’s safety on the road and prevent potentially dangerous situations from escalating. For example, dashcams have been known to help in accidents, and they have also been used to expose scams where people intentionally fall in front of vehicles and then extort money from the driver.
Here are some of the benefits of using a dashboard camera:
- Evidence in the event of an accident or crime. Dashcam footage can be used to prove your innocence in an accident, identify the other driver involved in an accident, help the police solve crimes, and get your insurance company to pay for your damages.
- Peace of mind. Knowing that you have a dashcam recording everything that happens on the road can give you peace of mind and help you feel safer while driving.
- Deterrent for crime. Dashcams can deter crime by making it more difficult for criminals to get away with their crimes.
If you are looking for a way to protect yourself on the road, a dashboard camera is a great option. They are affordable, easy to use, and can provide invaluable evidence in the event of an accident or crime.
