Auto insurance companies also advocate this practice, as videos allow them to get more information to determine the responsibilities of each individual. Some insurers even recommend using a dashcam in the car and offer discounts to their policyholders. The dashcam or on-board camera, as its name suggests, is a small camera that is „integrated” into the car. It`s a kind of black box of a car. It is used to film and record the sights and sounds of all the events that occur on the street. The goal can be single or double. For starters, if you have a dashcam installed in your car, you are allowed to film on the street. Nevertheless, there may be a few rules to follow when installing this camera. In addition, you must comply with certain laws and regulations regarding filming with a dashcam on public roads.
Corruption affects police officers who are bribed by drivers to get them out after an accident. Indeed, the amicable report is no longer useful if the damage caused is reparations of more than 600 euros. It is therefore imperative to call in a police officer. In the second case, people want to get damage by deliberately throwing themselves at cars. The United States is among the countries that has not banned the use of on-board cameras. It is legal to use them to record traffic violations, accidents and other incidents visible from your vehicle. However, there is a big difference between the United States and Russia. In Russia, drivers are obliged to install an on-board camera, since it is necessary to record every incident on the road. There are two reasons for this: corruption and people throwing themselves into a car to get compensation. The dashcam is a camera built into a car, truck or motorcycle and used to film everything that happens on the road.
In the case of the dashcam, when the user is filming well from his private life (his car), the camera is©always intended for© the public road, ©so it takes pictures of strangers outside the private©© life of the driver. Some motorists install cameras©©in their vehicle© (or dashcams) to film the road, and this with different objectives („creative©©”, © safety©, proof in case of accident, ¦ ). Cars even have these cams©in the series© (for example, models from the manufacturer TESLA). When they experience a real hype in some countries such as Russia or the United States, „dashcams” begin to democratize among French motorists, and some manufacturers, such as Citroën with its C3, even install them in their vehicles. In fact, these small onboard cameras, which are mounted inside the car, behind the rearview mirror, are able to record videos of your trip or even the surrounding area when your car is parked. The European Data Protection©©© Board (EDPS) explicitly© confirms this approach in its guidelines of 10 July 2019: „If a dashcam is installed (e.g. for the purpose of collecting evidence in the event of an accident), it is important to ensure that this camera does not constantly record traffic. as well as people who are near a road. Otherwise, the interest in video recordings as evidence in the more theoretical case of a traffic accident cannot justify that serious infringement of the rights of the data subject. It has GPS and can specify the exact date, time and location of each event it has recorded. It is really very useful and interesting and therefore the use of a dashcam in a car interests several people in France, and it is not limited to the France, other European countries see no objection to the use of a dashcam.
Nevertheless, other countries prohibit the use of a dashcam and to use it, it is necessary to request an authorization from the equivalent of the local CNIL. Thus, in France, each person can have a camera on board his car, on his motorcycle and even on his helmet. In fact, there is no current law prohibiting its inhabitants from having a dashcam. In the public sector, the use of these cameras©is not subject to©specific© regulations(www.village-justice.com/articles/dashcam-cameras-embarquees-reglementation-sur-protection-des-donnees,33195.html). From May 2022, car manufacturers will have to install a black box that records data on all new cars. Thank you for your very complete and interesting© article. However, there is one question that concerns me. With all the rules you have© in mind, I`m amazed©at the possibility for many people to film© others with their pro-embedded© go-cam (©running, vã©lo, skate,…), mini cameras used©in demonstrations that film protesters clearly without their permission, and a show without blur©©. ©©Mobile phones during police checks on public roads, but where passers-by do not ask to be on the video©.
In short, a whole series of examples where images are© often distributed©©and transmitted on social networks, while©in the case of a dashcam, where the processing of images is an issue not for distribution purposes, but more personally. Plus, there`s nothing wrong with it unless the camera has been stolen or used for criminal purposes. The use of its dashcams in private places does not require a special permit and even on public roads, but there are still some restrictions. The possession and use of the on-board camera must in no way disturb public life. The law in France does not prohibit the purchase, possession and use of an on-board camera. Article 2.2(c) of the GDPR states: „This Regulation does not apply to the processing of personal data carried out by a natural person in the context of a purely personal or domestic activity”.
