DALLAS — In my continued search to save you time and money, today we're on pothole patrol to help save you on pricey vehicle repairs. Thanks to a brutal winter, roads throughout our region are worse than I ever remember.

I drove through one of the worst potholes I've seen in a long time with my new car three weeks ago. I damaged my car and needed to pay for an alignment and to have my car re-balanced. When I called my insurance company to file the claim they asked if I had any dash cam video to support my case. That got me thinking and testing some dash cams.

If you want an extra set of eyes mounted to the top of your car for peace of mind while you're driving, to document any potential accidents where someone else is at fault or footage to make that insurance claim, get a dash cam. Dash cams are also great for anti-theft protection and motion detection.

I've tested four different models and my favorite deal drops today are on two complete winners. The first is a deal drop on a re-certified model from Top Dawg. It's well-reviewed and has every feature you'd need. If you have a little more money to spend, the E-Prance Dash Cams are brand new and at a slightly hire price.
