As in not use it in a criminal case ? We had cars broken into on our road not long ago and a neighbour caught those involved on a nest camera and I know guards arrested an individual from that footage ...
most houses here have ring or nest cameras a and a few cctv ... those that have cctv the cameras are up to high and all you can see is tops of heads ...

We have the ring system and can zone the area you want. Gardai have used the neighbours once .

The footage was later used in court without issue. I have even had the guards and neighbours call for footage from their own incidents without problems.
How long ago? Nowadays any decent solicitor can get your video evidence thrown out.

Why do Gardaí constantly ask for dash cam footage from any passing motorists in the event of an accident?

Most dash cams are fitted by Joe Soaps with the wires hanging everywhere, not some professional dash cam installer.

Because it gives them an idea, confirms notions but it's not something they can build a prosecuting case on.

Used by Gardai for their own investigations, not admissible in court. They could chance it in court but a good solicitor would get it thrown out on the grounds of not being verified.

How does a PSA install make it admissible or what is it about a DIY install that doesn't? Most frustrating thing is that the Gardai will arrive looking for footage with no way of collecting so I'll print them a few stills

It's just red tape and compliance created by the PSA

That’s what’s wrong with this country ... guilty scumbags destroying everyone’s life’s getting off due to solicitors with no morals getting them off on a technicality ....

She got to my car as I came up the street behind her... she was being fairly rough with the handle and giving the window a shove. I asked if I could help her, and she said “oh, my boyfriend has the keys, just wanted to sit into the car while I wait”. I told her it was my car and she legged it.


The city is rougher than it was ten years ago, from where I stand. Literally every time I go into the city I see either a crime or an attempted crime these days. I don’t know if it’s substance abuse, homelessness, lack of social integration... But visible crime looks like it is up.


You can tell me that is all because this woman’s mother had a job, but I doubt it.
Loading bays are for commercial vehicles. Lucky you didn’t get clamped.

They've used their phones to record it from my laptop screen after I stopped giving them free USB keys in my case

Why are you assuming I'm not in a commercial vehicle?
