    All drivers should have a 360 degree recording footage for the interior and exterior. You must protect yourself from ruthless passengers and / or accidents. You should also post said info in your car to protect your rights.

      I am surprised insurance companies haven't started requiring these items.

      I think that's the case in most states. but remember, this isn't your house either.  plus you are providing a service.  and you are getting paid.  All these things I think change things.

        At least in Florida, both your dwelling and vehicle are considered your "Castle Doctrine". If someone under road rage for example, tries to open your car door, or stick their hand thru the window to grab you per say, you could actually use deadly force. Your life doesn't have to be in danger in order for you to stand your ground in your Castle Doctrine.

    I have a dashcam, makes me feel so much safer. I haven't had to use it in a dispute yet but I know I will be happy to have the footage if anyone ever does try to cheat me.

      my dashcam actually has proven me right twice when it comes to pukers disputing that they were the ones to puke...

    What kind of a question is this?  How could it be illegal if they exist and you can buy them?  Of course you can have them.

    Hells yeah, it's legal to record your own car.  Why is this even a question.  If you can't record your car what can I record?

    Have you ever heard that half the city surveillance cameras are not even connected?  They do wonders for crime prevention, but having wired cameras are so expensive in most areas.  So they just prop up fake cameras everywhere.

    Yep.  Every driver should be equipped with a fake dashcam.  A plastic box.
