There's a year end "best of" list for everything these days, so why not dash cam videos?

Dash cam's are fitted at the front window of a vehicle and are used to record traffic accidents. They are huge in Russia and are used as a form of surveillance, because Russian courts prefer video evidence to eye witness testimony and they are also used to limit police corruption and insurance fraud.

2013 was the year of the dash cam video. Auto crashes, weather events, fatal shooting and attempts at insurance fraud have all been captured and uploaded to Youtube and social media outlets from all over the globe.

Here are some of the top dash cam videos of the year.
