They can't really. So what I'm guessing they end up writing a ticket against the owner of the vehicle. This means you pay the cost of the ticket but it never goes to your insurance provider meaning no points/premiums.
Curious, what did the owner DO wrong and how are they going to ID the owner/driver of said vehicle. IN the US, part f any criminal complaint must include ID of defendant and jurisdiction (where crime occurred.)

If you look at the screen capture you can see the car passing over a double solid yellow around a bend. So that's what they did wrong. In this case they can't ID the driver but they can ID the car based on the licence plate. The car is registered to someone and so the police will give the ticket to the registered owner of the car. Now of course the owner may not have been driving so if they take this to court I'd image they would win.

In Canada a ticket against the registered owner doesn't go to your insurance agency. So the ticket won't have any points, just a monetary penalty.

it really is a catch twenty two. i think it can help more than hurt most of the time. the times it can hurt, eat the evidence
I agree Mike! I can either pop the chip out of the dashcam or dismount it in a split second, so I'm not worried about it. I'm more worried about some [email protected] hitting our car and hauling @ss, or putting the blame on me! Someone ran into a pickup right in front of my workplace just yesterday and left the scene and no one got the bastards plate number! A dash cam sure would have come in handy!
