Facts: My home is located next to a busy intersection (roughly 30
yards). There is an automobile collision between 4 and 8 times monthly
(involving tow trucks and sometimes paramedics). Most of these
accidents involve a driver running the stop sign completely or
floating their stop at the very least. Plan: I want to install a
survelance camera on my property to capture the intersection 247.
Question: Can I profit from video taping these accidents and if there
is potential who would want my video (For example, insurance co.,
parties involved in the accident, attorneys...etc)
There is no answer at this time.

Ew, it almost seems worse than ambulance chasing.

But so deliciously entrepreneurial!

Yeah, I agree with markvmd. There's something so wrong, yet so very
interesting about the idea. I'm not sure how profiting would work
though. There's always those shows on TV that play crash videos; Most
Amazing Videos or something.

I'm also not sure how it would work if a crash victim knew you had the
tape. Could it be subpoenaed if the case went to court? Even if it
can't, do you want to be the guy who refused to offer up the tape w/o
being paid? Very interesting. I look forward to seeing further
comments and hopefully an answer.

you want to profit from others people misfortune? i really hope no one
dies there in the future.

In 1994 there was acutally a death. My neighboorhood association has
tried many times to get a stop light system placed. However, every
test (traffic counter) conducted by the city concluded that there was
not enough traffic to warrant a stop light system.
