A dashcam can save you from a major insurance headaches if you get into an accident, or even capture batshit crazy moments that you would have missed otherwise. If you’ve been waiting for a good deal to get your own, this well-reviewed TaoTronics model is down to a crazy low $40 today on Amazon (with code T2H3CH6H).


Update: The $40 dash cam is sold out for now, but we’ve actually spotted another dash cam deal for $44. [Black Box G1W Original Dash Cam, $44]


The coolest feature here (and one that I hope you never have to use) is automatic G-force detection. If the camera senses that you were in an accident, it’ll mark the corresponding footage to never delete until you’ve had a chance to review it. That’s one less thing to worry about in an extremely stressful situation. [TaoTronics Car HD Dashboard Camera, $40 with code T2H3CH6H]

Fun Fact: That cement truck crash happened like 2 miles from my house.
