    Pretty much, having a dash-cam is basic self preservation what with insurance scammers throwing themselves at cars and vodka fueled thugs looking for a scrap. Russian courts don`t put any weight on eye-witness testimony as they assume everyone has been bought off.

    I came home late one night a few years back and just after I parked the car, the entire sky just turned yellow-white in two or three pulses. No noise, no boom, just light, and gone a second. Close up and personal with a meteor is pretty impressive.

    They have the cams because they want proof if they get ripped off by criminal cops or other drivers who drag them into fictious accidents.

    I suspect it appears that way because video only captures 2D. If you were actually there, you would see that it is very far away, and not actually headed right at you.

    For the people claiming this was 2012 DA14 I think we should call this Derp Impact.

    @BlankTom. Nope. It was a meteorite. Look it up.

    A meteor burns up in the atmosphere. If it reaches the ground, it`s a meteorite.
