Dash­cams are a must, they won’t breach your pri­vacy

7 Days in Dubai - - DEAR 7 DAYS -

This is in re­sponse to the let­ter ‘Safe driver un­com­fort­able with mo­torists record­ing her with dash cams’ (Oct 12). Can I ask, if you claim to be a safe driver, then what wor­ries? Its just you driv­ing in your car. These type of cam­eras ba­si­cally get clear pic­tures of ve­hi­cles alone, hardly the driver and their ac­tiv­i­ties in­side. Apart from all this, 80 per cent of cars have medium or dark tints. Dash­cams come into play dur­ing an ac­ci­dent. Most of­ten I see de­bates on roads for ac­cept­ing blame. Even the po­lice find it hard to con­clude. Most de­vel­oped coun­tries use dash­cams to keep roads safer. I rec­om­mend this be used. No one’s pri­vacy will be breached. Daniel Varghese Dubai 1-year-old as she was en­trusted to do. I caught this on cam­era. When con­fronted, she de­nied and de­nied un­til I even­tu­ally showed her the footage. My son, who trusts this lady, was tricked and fooled be­cause of his in­no­cence, we were tricked and fooled be­cause of her dis­hon­esty. This was a shame­ful act. As a con­se­quence, I marched her down to the po­lice sta­tion to act as a warn­ing, where she re­ceived a ter­ri­ble telling off by a se­nior mem­ber of the po­lice force, as well as a se­vere telling off by me and; a fi­nal warn­ing. I left her in no doubt that one more trans­gres­sion and she would be back on a plane to her coun­try, at her own cost. You see, she broke the trust and com­mit­ted a shame­ful act and needed to learn a les­son. But to back up Nathalie’s point (‘Maid abusers should be named and shamed’, Let­ters, Oct 12) – ver­bal pun­ish­ment is much bet­ter – phys­i­cal abuse should never even come into it.
