The evidence is overwhelming: Trucks and Commercial fleets are found to be at fault at a much lower rate than private car drivers when there is an road incident. Commercial fleet owners and drivers can protect themselves and save time & costs with the concrete evidence SmartWitness technology provides. SmartWitness combines the ease of use and simple form factor of a "dash camera" with the added security, technology, and feature set of a more expensive mobile DVR.
The cameras have definitely improved the behavior of the chauffeurs because our at fault accident rate has reduced by almost half to about four or five accidents per month compared with the same five month period last year. I would estimate we will save about £60,000 a year based on fewer accidents and because we will be less likely to be targeted by 'cash for crash' fraud. We also expect our insurance premiums to reduce next year.Janusz Kozlowski,
SmartWitness enables operators and drivers to defend themselves. The video shows any accident or incident clearly and exactly who is to blame. We put the system in our vehicles in June last year, mainly because our insurer had asked for what we felt was a higher than reasonable increase in our premium...
We agreed to put the cameras in and the insurer agreed to reduce the premium!Chris Pickles,
