Why should you turn off sound on your dash cam videos?

WE all know that footage filmed on dash cam is often used as evidence to charge culprits with traffic offences as well as road rage.

Often people who snap the footage hand it to the boys in blue when they consider somebody has committed an offence against them.

A learned policeman told Spy that on occasions that footage can reveal that the person who provided the dash cam footage was indeed the offender.

And a truckie who often uses his dash cam told Spy to make sure you turn off the sound if you are going to give footage to the police.

"If you swear and are heard on the footage you can be charged with road rage," he said.
