As temperatures drop and icy conditions continue to grip the roads, there has never been a more opportune time to get yourself a dash cam. Not only are they capable of capturing crystal-clear footage, but they can also save you from getting stuck in a sticky—or in this case, icy—situation in case you get involved in an accident.
You don’t have to make a huge investment just to have a quality dash cam. Here are eight options currently on sale:
GoSafe S37 1080P HD Sony Exmor Sensor Dash Cam
As you can tell by the name, this dash cam is designed to keep you safe on the wheel. It uses Sony’s Exmor sensor to capture high-quality HD video in the day, night, or in any weather. It can adjust the sensitivity of light for clearer images, and the ultra-wide-angle lens gives an enormous 140-degree field of vision. You can enjoy features like stop sign recognition, stop and go, driver fatigue warning, headlight reminder, and even a front collision warning system that alerts you when you’re driving too close to the car in front. This cam is currently on sale for $99.99 (reg. $169).
Infiniview Lite Digital Rear View Mirror & Dash Cam
Nearly a million blind-spot collisions occur each year in the US alone. You can prevent being part of that statistic with this package that comes with a front and rear dash cam, 9.7-inch digital touch screen, anti-glare mirror, and rearview system with adjustable lens that gets rid of blind spots to help you back up. It has an IP7X waterproof lens that can capture everything in rain or fog without damage, and the 170-degree wide-angle recording feature means you no longer have to drive with an obstructed view. For a limited time, you can get it for only $249.99 (reg. $279).

A large 4-inch screen is built-in for easy playback, but you can also remove the memory card and play it on any computer. Of course, performance-wise, it ticks all the boxes of what you need in a dashcam: digital zoom, motion detection, cycle recording, wide dynamic range, LED light, and more. The Safe Drive is on sale for only $49.99 (reg. $119).

A no-frills dash cam, this one features HD playback, a wide-angle lens, and loop recording, so you won’t miss a moment.
