Dash cams may seem frivolous until you find yourself in a situation wishing you'd had one. If you get rear-ended, wind up in an accident that isn't your fault, or someone decides to shatter your window and steal your spare change, a dash cam can have your back. That goes double for anyone driving for a rideshare service like Uber or Lyft.

Luckily, right now you can snag the Vava 1080p HD Dash Cam on sale for only $34.99 at Woot today only. Usually it'd cost you closer to $50 at retailers like Amazon.
