dash cam driving in snow

Why you need a dashcam during snowstorms

Here in the Boston area we’ve been pounded by some of the worst snow storms in decades. The snow keeps coming down and piling up. The problem? There’s nowhere to put the stuff. Roads are narrow and slippery.

The most dangerous aspect of this is that you can’t see in either direction of the street you are pulling out onto. Hell, I can’t even see my street as I pull out of my driveway. My only option is to pull out SLOWLY and hope any oncoming cars see me and either swerve or stop for me.

In too many cases I’ve had to break suddenly because a moron pulled all the way out into my lane before seeing if there was a car there or not. Having a dash cam in these scenarios is critical.

The latest Raspberry Pi 2 Model B is out, and with it comes some new testing on my part for use as a dash cam.

The original Model B would sometimes lock up when running motion for too long. Granted, that’s stress testing and I kept it running longer than you ever would during driving. But I like to put things through their paces.
