February is Rideshare Care Month

February is Rideshare Care Month

Do you drive a taxi cab or do rideshare for Uber or Lyft? Getting into an accident is one of the most common fear because it’s so easy to do. You’re covered under Uber’s insurance every time you’re en route to pick up riders or you’re driving a passenger to their destination, but what if an accident happens when you’re waiting for a ride request, or after you’ve just parked the car and called it a night?

Luckily, if your status is Available and/or you’re waiting for a ride request, Uber maintains basic auto insurance on your behalf. However, when you’re Offline, or have powered down and call it a night, your personal insurance and coverages apply. This is pretty much the same if you drive for Lyft. With that said, should anything happen to your car off the road and/or in the middle of the night, you’re pretty much on your own.

Sketchy situations and shady passengers are part of the job. Accidents happen. Thefts happen. You need to protect yourself and your vehicle and you’ve come to the right place because February is Rideshare Care Month at BlackboxMyCar and we’ve got great deals on rideshare models as well as our Best of 2020 4K UHD dash cams.

Take 5% off Rideshare Dash Cams with code 'RIDESHARE5'

When we talk about rideshare dash cams, we are typically referring to the front-and-interior dual-channel systems. These dash cams are also called IR dash cams - the in-cable camera is an infrared camera that is designed to record in poor- or no-light environments, like the inside of the vehicle at night. And because it’s still a dash cam, the IR models can record audio and video at all times when the vehicle is in use, or when you’ve powered down and walked away from your vehicle.

We carry several IR dash cams, including the BlackVue DR900S-2CH 4K IR, the best 4K IR dash cam of the year, and the VIOFO A129 Duo IR, the best Budget-Friendly IR Dash Cam of the year. All of our brand new rideshare dash cams come with a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty and extended warranties are available should you need.

For the month of February, take 5% off your rideshare dash cam with code “RIDESHARE5” at checkout.

Need to record the traffic behind? Save $50 Off on 4K UHD and 2K QHD

The rear camera of a regular dual-channel system is not designed for in-cabin recording. Yes, the rear camera is fitted with image sensors that provide a decent level of night vision for nighttime recording. But in order to get usable, detailed recording of in-cabin activities, you need infrared cameras.

It's also not a good idea to flip an infrared dash cam around to record the outside of the vehicle - the glare from the infrared bulb reflecting on the windshield will adversely affect the quality of the recording.

If you are looking for a good 2-channel dash cam system to record the front and back of your drive, then may we recommend the Thinkware U1000 Dual-Channel - a 4K front-plus-2K rear dash cam system that comes with Super Night Vision 2.0 to deliver the best day and night-time recordings. Looking for a more budget-friendly high-resolution dash cam? There’s the VIOFO A119 V3, a 2K front-plus-Full HD rear system. Both systems are now $50 off!
