We hate to break it to you, but the world is chock full of unscrupulous people, folk who don't care one bit about screwing you to get ahead. Thankfully, unscrupulousness can be kept in check by vigilantly recording everything that happens to you. We know, the prospect sounds daunting, but a good dash cam will at least keep you covered while driving.

While most of the time your dash cam will record nothing but the drudgeries of daily driving, if you're like this guy, you'll be glad you had it on when something fishy goes down. The setting is a traffic-clogged freeway somewhere, and the characters are played by our dash cam owner and one of those unscrupulous people we were talking about earlier.

Follow the jump to see why it's always good to have a dash cam rolling.

      1 reason we should reinstitute the "firing squad". Please let me be one to line up and practice my aim! I hate scammers and this crap.

      The audacity of Raguruban Yogarajah is outrageous. Here are some quotes from the article http://www.mississauga.com/news/article/1298188--bumper-cars-on-the-401 "He says he's spoken to the Toronto police and the RCMP on six occasions about the online threats, but all have said they have no jurisdiction over YouTube and some were dismissive of his safety concerns." "...Yogarajah called police himself..." Nobody likes scammers, including the police. This happened to me once in a parking lot. The person backed into me and said it was my fault. She was not willing to give me her license and insurance, so I called the police. When the police arrived, she told them that I hit her. Luckily I had two witnesses, and the person that back into me got a careless driving fine at the end. Justice is sweet.

      I hope the next time he tries that scam and gets out of his car, he is hit by another moving vehicle. That is my wish.

      A lady did this to me at a stop light. She was messing around with her kids in the back seat and let her foot off the brake pedal (manual transmission). She rolled backwards into my car. Feeling the bump she pulled the e-brake and came running to my car window. "Why do you ******* pay attention? I have kids in the car!", she screamed. I said, "Yeah, I know. Your car rolled backwards when you were turned around beating your kids you *expletive* *expletive*. I was stopped." She then realized what had happened, covered her mouth and went back to her car. It was a small bump and my car was a piece of junk so I didn't mind.

      I hope this guy gets his license suspended, and he goes to jail for fraud and attempted extortion. Punk. I think I'm going to get some cameras because of experiences similar to this.

      This is why I have a Dash Cam. I recently had an issue with another driver and when the Police showed, I showed them the footage. The other driver started yelling stating that I could NOT have a Dash Cam and that it was Against the Law. Of course, She was Being Handcuffed and Arrested for Falsifying a Police Report and lying to a Police Officer. Invest a couple of hundred buck. It's worth it.

      For the life of me I'll never understand why people don't get out of traffic after a fender bender. I promise CSI won't being showing up with their black lights and DNA gathering equipment to document the scene.

      People are shady I had this happen to a friend of mine on the I93 clover leaf with I95 worst built interchange in Massachusetts. The women had a couple of cars following her and they tried to keep him from calling the cops. He got cleared of fault and they got charged. sketchy people are everywhere no matter what race or color.
