If there was an actual accident or damage, the police will become involved, and they certainly can easily access the surveillance tapes.

I paid a key shop at the strip mall 100 dollars and they have me a copy of 48 hrs worth of video!!

I hope that was legal.

That is not illegal, a video camera taping a public space is information available to anybody who may request it.

That's not true. If I have a store with cameras recording in/around the store I am under no obligation to give you my video if you ask for it.

My experience is that most stores will not give it without some legal request from an officer or a subpoena or something similar.
I went through basically that same issue two years ago.

This discussion was very helpful.
I was able to get the footage in my situation from a 7 11 and at first they said no.
Then I explained all the things that could be done and reminded them it is a publicly accessible lot.

I completely agree with AFFA what he is saying. Take a copy of the footage of car accident from apartment manager is the only way to get evidence of accident in front of court.

It ony takes any lawyer a few minutes to issue a subpoena and require the footage to be turned over as part of an existing court case, if one exists.
Easy and quick to do, but don't wait in those situations as the footage could be erased or discarded at some point.

Well that's generally true IF the space is a space where there is no expectation of privacy.

You can simply ask for the footage, and if the holder of the footage will not provide it, then a subpoena can be ordered and you will obtain everything available. It's not really that complicated an issue.
