Another thing...

While the cams may be there to also help stamp out police corruption, there is another large problem that they attempt to solve.

Insurance fraud is more common than I had even thought in Russia; and some insurance companies require drivers to have a dash-cam. There are hundreds of videos/compilations you can watch online of people literally jumping in front of cars to try to get insurance money out of them. The dash-cams record these events by the hundreds (not only in Russia) and are a large reason the dash-cams are so prominent.

They are fairly comical to watch as well.
