Getting Personal: Industry Profile - Roger Delarosbil

He'd only make a passing reference to his challenges, and I'd have to dig. Roger doesn't like to complain. And when I would sense the tip of a horrifying iceberg, he would wave me through like a traffic cop at passing rubberneckers. I soon realized there had been some struggle on Roger's path to success.

David's Take: Hands-On Review of the RSC Ichigo Dashcam

There's a bucketful of dashcam brands out there. Unfortunately, most of them are of questionable quality. That includes major brand dashcams that are no more than mediocre (or worse) quality units being slapped with big brand logos.
