About BlackboxMyCar

Company Background

In his sophomore year at the University of British Columbia, BlackboxMyCar founder Alex Jang had family members involved in a horrific car accident. As both parties in the incident denied responsibility for the collision, and with a lack of video evidence and witnesses, the case to prove his family’s innocence took over a year to settle. Alex realized that this long delay in reaching a resolution and the stress and money wasted could all have been eliminated with simple video evidence.

With that, Alex looked into dash cams and started BlackboxMyCar in 2012.

Company Mission

As North America’s dash cam pioneer, BlackboxMyCar is dedicated to providing products that offer protection for everybody on the road. We strive for excellence in everything we do, from serving our customers to training our employees. We aim to protect our community so that every driver can feel safe on the road, knowing that a silent witness is on board to provide video evidence.

Our primary goal is to also educate the public on what dash cams are, what they can offer and that they are readily available in the market. We are confident that our well trained staff will be capable of tackling any issues and accomplishing any goals that we set for ourselves.

Company Vision

We envision a future where every driver is protected from auto insurance fraud, careless driving and vehicle vandalism. We want video evidence to be something that makes drivers feel safer, knowing that a silent witness is always on board to offer the truth.

The entire team at BlackboxMyCar work hard every day to provide as much free information on dash cams as possible so that drivers are better educated on the importance and benefits that a dash cam can bring to everyone.

Management Biography

Alex Jang, CEO & Founder

Alex started BlackboxMyCar stemming from one single vehicle incident back in 2011. The fact that his mother was involved in a motor vehicle accident, and there were no reliable witnesses around to prevent unbiased objective evidence.

Alex was originally born in South Korea where dash cams are essentially present in virtually every single vehicle. Naturally, he wondered why the concept of dash cams was unknown in North America. It seemed like a simple solution to thwart the widespread problem of insurance fraud and unnecessary court cases. Hence BlackboxMyCar was born. As a younger entrepreneur in a fast-growing company with several multi-million dollars in revenue, he continues to surround myself with a strong and growing team of experienced professionals on which he can rely on for strategic business advice, and in order to execute company operations.

Today, BlackboxMyCar is recognized as North America’s largest dash cam supplier, having doubled sales year-over-year since inception. The company has also partnered up with government organizations, law enforcement agencies, vehicle fleet companies, in addition to anything from small businesses to enterprise-scale corporations. However, BlackboxMyCar will always continue to cater to the single private vehicle owner, just like his mother, who simply wants and needs protection from any injustice in the event of an accident.

BlackboxMyCar is also the authorized dealer for all major brands of dash cams (including; BlackVue, ThinkWare, BlackSys, iRoad, VIOFO, VicoVation, and DOD), proudly having been the first to introduce most of these brands to the North American market.
