As I mentioned in a previous post, I use a Car Cam when I am driving. The primary reason is that if I have an accident, I want proof as to who is responsible for the accident.
If a foreigner is involved in an accident in Panama, it is likely that he/she will be found to be the responsible party.
Yesterday as I was on my way to Chiriqui Hospital I caught the following accident on my car cam. If the car cam was in the silver Hyundai, then it would have shown that the Hyundai driver was responsible. Likewise, if it had been in the black car it would have shown that the silver Hyundai had hit it from the left side.
I am perfectly willing to accept responsibility for any accident I cause, but I don’t want to take responsibility for another person’s mistake. I carry my documentation with me.
I think they should require all Taxi drivers to have a car cam since most accidents have at least one Taxi in them.
