Yes. That was what I were referring. I don't have a particular purpose in mind, but just a general self-protection in case of an accident or other disputable situation. Thank you.

Thanks for the helpful information. How about the neighboring states, such as NJ, DE, MD, NY, VA, OH, is there any legal issue with the dash cam? Thank you.
Thanks for the information. I did not realize the situation as you mentioned. Should I start with a new question post or can I just reply to start a new post? if I need to start a new questions post, how do I know you will be the one to answer it? Thank you.
Hi Charles, if you put TO ALEXIA ESQ., ONLY in your header, that should give the quick clue to others to get it to me. Should another contributor choose to disrespect that choice, feel free to judge him accordingly and insist. That is rare, by the way, but once in a blue moon. I'll keep my eyes open for you!

In fact, NJ may also allow audio of a conversation so long as one party, which can be the audio taper himself if he is a party to the conversation, consents - and clearly the taper will confirm that he consents to his own act of taping.
Section d, below, is where this exception to wiretapping (audio) is spelled out in NJ:
2A:156A-4. Lawful interception activities; exceptions
4. It shall not be unlawful under this act for:
d. A person not acting under color of law to intercept a wire, electronic or oral communication, where such person is a party to the communication or one of the parties to the communication has given prior consent to such interception unless such communication is intercepted or used for the purpose of committing any criminal or tortious act in violation of the Constitution or laws of the United States or of this State or for the purpose of committing any other injurious act. The fact that such person is the subscriber to a particular telephone does not constitute consent effective to authorize interception of communications among parties not including such person on that telephone. Any person who unlawfully intercepts or uses such communication as provided in this paragraph shall be subject to the civil liability established in section 24 of P.L.1968, c.409 (C.2A:156A-24), in addition to any other criminal or civil liability imposed by law;
Video tape away! (I think I am going to get one also - any recommendations?) I'd like one that is MAC friendly.)
