My 20 year-old daughter asked me to bring her one of our dashboard cameras.
“What do you need a dash cam for?” I asked.
“Are you kidding? Haven’t you seen all the dash cam footage of Russian meteor, plane crashes, murders…”
I squirmed a little. “No,” I said. “I’m not into pop-culture.”
“What does pop-culture have to do with dash cam footage?”
She then pulled out her phone, typed something really fast and pulled up a wide variety of dash cam footage. She showed me accidents, a shooting, two meteors and a drunk guy getting arrested.
“That’s all real life shot on a dashboard camera, Dad.”
“Ok, I’ll bring you one. What do you hope to capture on it?”
“Nothing interesting, I hope.”
Here are a few of the dash-cam videos we watched:
