If a dashcam shows one party is 100% at fault, but they tell the officer at the scene another story and tells it very loudly (like volume vindicates their guilt), can we charge the driver with perjury?
I've witnessed a few accidents where someone didn't stop and yield at a 4-way stop. The party at fault is yelling very loudly both at the person they hit and later at the responding officer that they were in the right, etc.
If I (or someone else) had dashcam footage of the accident that showed who they didn't stop, could the officer also charge them with perjury as well as being 100% at fault of the accident? If I was a party in this accident, could I use the footage to show who's at fault and who's committing perjury?
EDIT: Just to clear up, I'm not saying because someone is loud, they are innocent. I am saying some people, when they are at fault, yell their case very loudly and declare that they are innocent.
And when the cops come to sort things out, even with logic, common sense, and witnesses stating they were 100% guilty, they continue yelling that they are innocent. I've had this happen to me before and luckily the authorities and witnesses backed me up. It was very annoying having someone yelling in my face when myself and everyone else knew they were 100% wrong.
