Proving fault following an accident is one of the biggest challenges that fleets face after a road traffic accident (RTA). Often, large commercial vehicles are held accountable in incidents where they aren’t necessarily at fault, if they aren’t able to prove otherwise. Grainy footage that doesn’t stand up in claims is hugely frustrating, as are cameras that don’t record well at night. A good dashcam can literally save you thousands of pounds.
Dashcams can film everything in front of your vehicle, helping to establish accountability in the event of an RTA. The most common incident on the road is collision into the rear of a vehicle. Very often, car drivers can make sudden swerves or attempts at braking, and this can cause vans and trucks that have longer stopping distances to collide with them. This can often be out of control of the van or lorry driver.
In these cases, dash cameras serve as a means to deliver undeniable proof as to who is to blame in the case of an RTA. Without solid proof, the chances are that the commercial vehicle will take the brunt of the blame. Better still, dash cameras, if installed across a fleet, can help reduce insurance premiums. The last thing you want is the stress of having to take a claim to court because you don’t have physical evidence to show you weren’t in the wrong.
Simply put, yes. Many dashcams on the market require little to no installation but can also be integrated with other technology to make them even more powerful. For instance some people like to pair them with a reverse camera so that you have vision when reversing but also proof of collisions with the rear of your van or truck.
