Having a Dashcam is like having an independent eyewitness in your vehicle with you. In the case of an accident, a camera will provide a fully objective version of events that can help in the handling of motor claims.
Cameras are an invaluable tool, providing you with a visual back up in the event of an accident. With Crash for Cash becoming a worrying trend on the roads, and drivers ever more nervous about incoming claims, video footage can be an extremely useful piece of evidence in the fight against fraud. Even a simple dispute over liability is often settled with footage from in-vehicle devices.
The use of cameras has been proven to help reduce the frequency of road traffic accidents drivers are involved in. Footage is also court admissible, making it invaluable in the case of large or severe road traffic accidents. Many cameras also double as security, as well as being a secure way for fleet managers to monitor their drivers’ everyday driving habits.
Several insurers apply notable discounts to drivers and fleets with cameras installed. While only around 3% of all UK vehicles currently have cameras, this number is rapidly rising as more drivers and companies pick up on the benefits. Safedrive sell three different kinds of camera.
These cameras are easy to use and adhere to a vehicle’s windscreen, and can be set to record continuously or to lock down footage before and after an accident.
This full HD 1080p forward facing camera delivers a complete view of vehicles and drivers in front of you. A built in GPS receiver ensures accurate information on vehicle location and speed.
