The importance of having a dash cam if you are a taxi or a rideshare driver cannot be stressed enough!
Hit from behind
Marvin (bigmarv34 on Instagram) sent us this footage recorded on his BlackVue LTE dashcam (DR750X-2CH IR LTE Plus can be purchased here). He was just taking off after the traffic lights turned green, when suddenly his car was hit by a speeding vehicle from behind! The footage recorded by the front camera tells just a part of the story – the rest was better shown by the dash cam’s interior IR camera, facing the driver.

In that video we can clearly see the lights quickly approaching the back of Marvin’s car, then a crash and all the airbags exploding. The other driver, who was speeding and lost control over their vehicle, hit 5 cars in total (including Marvin’s) before stopping. Thankfully, Marvin and his passenger looked alright, if a little shaken.
