If you want to avoid the dreaded your-word-against-theirs situation after a car accident, a dash cam is a cheap and effective method of replaying the past—for the police, for your insurance company, or for the internet to enjoy. Seriously though, investing a bit of money into a good dash cam can save tens of thousands of dollars in court and legal fees. So why not stack savings on savings and grab one on sale?

More to the point, it’s Thanksgiving week, and this year AAA estimates that over 49 million Americans will hit the roads and travel more than 50 miles to celebrate with friends and family—the third-busiest stretch since 2000. That’s a whole lot of driving, and a whole lot of chances for some bozo to ruin your holidays if you don’t have proof that they did indeed run that stop sign.

Below, I’ve rounded up some of the best dash cam deals available ahead of Black Friday. I’m a particular fan of the Nexar Beam, but any of these are great picks, easy to set up, and solid bets to protect yourself and your family on the way to Grandma’s.
