One of the latest trends among Thai motorists is installing a dashcam. I’ve seen adverts like this one on quite a few Thai websites and some of my Thai friends already have one. The prices are certainly dropping now. You can either buy online at websites like this one or just visit MBK in Bangkok. You just plug it into your cigarette lighter and insert a SD Card. It then records your journey using a wide angle lens. An average card size will be able to record a nine hour car journey. You can even set them up to automatically re-record on top of old recordings if nothing happened during your journey. I even know someone who set up a second dashcam pointing to the drivers door. Useful if you get stopped by a policeman and he tries to get a bribe out of you. I think as a foreigner in Thailand, something like this is a good idea. Its gives you peace of mind. If an incident does happen, it is easier to show who was at fault. Policeman often have the attitude that if you are foreigner then you must be rich and should then pay compensation to the other party. Doesn’t matter who was at fault.
