love it! and this is the reason that the laws are tighter and more are punished.

I hate to be the one to point it out... but look at the car he is actually driving....

I followed someone pouring hot tea/coffee out of a flask into a cup in his lap at 60 mph on the M42. As it was before mobiles I stopped at a roadside phone and rang the police and reported him. Pity he didn't spill it!

the amount of times I have dialed the police whilst driving....

This is why I would love a dashcam (hoping to convince the Mrs still!) then I could turn the camera, get them to wave and then send it in to the local office. Even if I can get just one person scalded for their stupid actions (no pun intended) it would be worth the investment, and if I could save myself blame in an insurance incident... better still!

This isn't too different than texting while driving...

The number of times I have seen people (esp. young, female, hair dresser types) on the road texting while driving on the morning commute is staggering.

If only I could take a photo of every offender I saw, including vehicle registration, and send it to the cops as evidence. I am sure a nice FPN of £100 and 3 points would make their day. ^_^

I use an app on my S3 called Daily Roads Voyager.

Does everything a dash cam does and overlays GPS data.

It has settings for a G meter to autosave footage and also can save a preset length of video by merely touching your phone screen.

It does everything a dedicated dash cam does and IIRC is FREE! :)

Unfortunately for people like me (with budget smartphones) the camera quality means that you can get the general picture but not specifics enough to have a clean video for the officer in the event its needed. I used to use autoboy from the android store, that had a free version and worked rather well. I am sure that for the upper market smartphones it will do perfectly, but if like me you have a budget device, then you probably wont get the benefit from it!

You could give that app a go.

It's surprising what picture quality you can get.

tried it, its a good looking app, but the quality is still pants :p

besides, the Mrs owes me a good Christmas present, it might as well be something very functional and that will hopefully get some fist locked up for being a douche!

I'd send you one of my work car cameras but someone might notice it's missing.

You can read a numberplate at a half mile easily.

A very kind offer Clive :) if only we could offer that exchange :p

Got my eye on a GS8000L, cheap but seemingly good and if I can get one with a guaranteed year long warranty?
