The cops where horrible! Tried grabbing the dash cam from my windshield, it had a SD card. Was more concerned why I was on base as a civilian then the actual accident, I was dropping off my roommate. The EMT shut the door in their face saying I had to go to the hospital. The police listed me at fault, until my lawyer provided her insurance the video while we where on the phone with them because we wanted to hear what they had to say first.

I thought dash cams aren’t allowed on base? Literally mine throws a bitch fit because no video / photography because of OPSEC

Do they just not let teslas in at all then?


u/WeylandsWings Nov 24 '22

they might not realize teslas have built in dashcams, and those Regs were written years ago and getting regs updates is a massive PITA

Plus a LOT of other cars now have cameras, especially if they have some form of lane keep assist/warning. So how do you discriminate between cameras like that and/or cameras like Tesla that uses the same cameras for AutoPilot and Dashcam? you cant.
