Initially, the introduction price was over 5 yen per set, but in 2006, multiple companies predicted the market expansion and entered the market[6]As a result, the actual price is shifting to a reasonable price according to the market logic.

In addition, the taxi companies and shipping companies that have introduced the accident rate tend to be lower than before the introduction.[4][7].. This is because even if an accident does not occur, even in the case where the prescribed acceleration is applied to the vehicle body (sudden start, sudden braking, sudden steering), the image and sound are recorded as in the case of the accident, so the driver There is a theory that the psychological effect of the crew on the fact that the driver can objectively recognize the danger of his/her driving has an effect of suppressing inappropriate driving behavior.

It is also treated in case investigations[8].

In the latter half of the 2000s, video recording type drive recorders were technically in a transitional stage, so the standards and functions were inconsistent depending on the products of each company, and this variation hinders the penetration rate. Since there are parts, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism is working toward standardization.[3].

When recording a videoframe rateDepending onAlternating currentUse power LED formulaTraffic lights OfFlickerIt may be synchronized with (flicker) and the lighting color of the traffic light may not be recorded.[23][24].. When this phenomenon occurs, the traffic light is recorded as if all the lights of blue, yellow, and red were turned off in the video.

In Japan, a typical video camera frame rate is 30fpsSince it is often (30 frames per second)[24],Commercial power frequencyIs 60HzThis area is likely to occur in[23][24]. Also,Broadcast systemToNTSCnotPAL,SECAMSince 25 fps (25 frames per second) is used in the countries and regions that use, it may occur in regions that use other commercial power supply frequencies depending on the country in which the drive recorder is manufactured. If you use a model that can shoot at a frame rate that does not overlap with the commercial power frequency of the country/region, you can avoid the phenomenon that the lights are recorded as if they were extinguished.[23][24].

Recording using a digital deviceFalsificationIs possible[26], Because the traces are hard to remain[27], May not be adopted as evidence in court[26]At one time, there was a debate about the presence of evidence[28].. In response to these problems, a model that incorporates a function to prevent tampering has also appeared.[26][27].. However, after that, the image quality of the drive recorder improved,GPS satelliteBy date and timelatitudelongitudeWith the widespread availability of models capable of recording detailed information such as information acquisition and running speed, advanced technology is required for counterfeiting, and it is necessary to facilitate trial evidence and settlement by settlement. As evidence, it began to be considered valid[25][28].

In addition, we manufacture and sell drive recordersFujitsu tenAccording to a questionnaire survey conducted on the Web in 2016, out of the 200 people who have experienced an accident in a vehicle equipped with a drive recorder, 70.2 Percentage, 29.8% of respondents were not helpful due to accidents outside the angle of view.[25].
