You should check on a discounted rate for having one. I'd be surprised if car insurance offers one, but it never hurts to ask.
Now that is interesting, and I really mean it.
I have never tried this so I dont know, but can you alter the time stamp on a video in a way that would confuse the court? Has that ever happened to you?
