Dashboard cameras ("DashCams"), which are becoming increasingly more common in cars, have led the German Lawyers' Association, Deutscher Anwaltsverein, (the "DAV"), to call for action from the legislator for greater consideration of data protection law and an individual's right to decide what information can be communicated about him or herself through DashCams. The DAV considers the permanent use of DashCams to be a breach of privacy and, subsequently, states that the unrestricted admission of DashCam recordings as judicial evidence could not be seen to be lawful. The DAV has however, recognised that the question of admissibility must be determined on a case by case basis.
To the extent that organisations make use of DashCam footage, they should follow the developments in this area.
