Letter writer: What happens if drivers use dashcams to spy?
“Don’t do bad things in public and you won’t have to worry…” MARK
“How are they spying on you exactly? What does a dashcam give them that they can’t see with their own eyes? You could just as easily write down the licence plate number and record it. I’m not really seeing the espionage potential a dashcam gives you over your own eyes” DXBEXPAT
“Drivers and passengers can record with a mobile phone so what is the difference?” LADYREDDXB
“If you are doing something in public which can be recorded through dashcam, its not “Private” at all.” FARHAN
“What about everybody that takes video/photos on their mobile phones? You fine with that but not a dashcam, which has a limited field of view?” BOB
Readers split on story of businessman who spent Dhs33m on D 5 plate

“What a show…. a real show….” ASSIA
“People are dying of hunger and homelessness in his native country and he’s flashing all this money on a car plate. What a sad world we are living in. We are all immortal.” HUMPHREY HALA NAIROBI
“He works hard and earned it. And he deserves to be happy and spoil himself.” HANNA MERA
“There are rich and poor people in every country… that money he earned by his luck or hard work and he has full right to spend it wherever he wants... nobody has right to question him and who knows maybe he is doing charity as well regularly.” VIKAS ASWANI
