Three on what the dashcam didn’t show

Just because the dashcam video doesn’t show the traffic violation doesn’t mean that it didn’t happen. The trooper testified that what he sees might be slightly different but still true. State v. Moore, 2023-Ohio-494, 2023 Ohio App. LEXIS 517 (4th Dist. Jan. 23, 2023).

Just because the passenger’s seatbelt appears fastened in the dashcam video doesn’t mean that he didn’t fasten it when the pull over occurred. United States v. Alexander, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 30609 (N.D. Ill. Feb. 24, 2023).*

Just because the dashcam video did not show the presence of another vehicle the officer saw didn’t mean it didn’t happen. United States v. Gause, 2023 U.S. App. LEXIS 4411 (11th Cir. Feb. 24, 2023).*
