Get Visual Evidence
The US Department of Labor estimates that every 12 minutes someone dies in a motor vehicle crash and every 10 seconds an injury occurs. Work-related vehicle incidents are very expensive for business owners, employees, and drivers. An accident can cause lots of trouble, but with passive dash cameras it can eliminate the ‘he-said, she-said’ confusion. Having visual evidence of an incident or accident can assist in exonerating drivers and protecting against false claims.
Passive Cameras operate off an SD card within the camera. The camera is continuously recording, but when an incident occurs, the SD card can be taken out and played. This allows for incident clips to be saved in case they need to be used to prove what happened.
Integrated Dash Cams and GPS
The video telematics works in a loop format and runs infinitely, replacing oldest video footage with newest. Additionally, built in accelerometer precisely calculates G-force events and highlights this video footage so that risky, distracted, or concerning behavior can be spotted immediately upon video review.
Having GPS tracking within your vehicles is helpful at noting where drivers are and managing job times for payroll. When it comes to incidents or accidents, GPS tracking can help tell where the driver is, but doesn’t offer the visual evidence that a camera can. Having the dash camera installed in a vehicle can make a huge financial difference when it comes to settling claims.
Installing cameras is also simple, why do you think so many American’s have them in their everyday cars? If a regular person is monitoring their own vehicle with a dashboard camera, then why wouldn’t a fleet owner? It makes sense to not only protect vehicles but also the drivers just by installing a camera. It’s important to support the team and show them support by protecting them against the dangers their job can bring.
