CrashCAM™ is your own independent witness when other drivers refuse to accept liability, exaggerate a claim, or deliberately cause a ‘cash-for-crash’ accident.
Vision Techniques Manager, Jonathan Peach, said: “It’s no secret that some fraudsters will do almost anything to make money, and will intentionally cause collisions while making it look like the other driver is to blame.
“That’s what CrashCAM™ is for – it’s a forward-facing black box accident recorder, which gives you a quick and easy video record of accidents or incidents that have taken place.”
A report from the Insurers Fraud Bureau (IFB) says that cash-for-crash scams cost insurers £392m a year in inflated insurance premiums.
This comes at a high price for large fleet owners, with organisations losing vast amounts of money each year in false claims. A well-known way that scammers achieve this is through ‘staged accidents’ leading to innocent motorist hitting the fraudster’s vehicles.
There are a number of ways a scammer can stage accidents, such as disabling the brake lights on their vehicle and braking suddenly, or pulling off from a junction into a clear road then applying the brakes for no reason.
As well as providing you with video evidence of accidents and incidents, CrashCAM™ displays journey information – such as speed and shock data – on a playback screen. There’s also a GPS tracking and mapping system to track positioning.
This can help you evaluate how to drive your vehicle more efficiently.
CrashCAM™ is suitable for both private car owners and fleet operators. Visit the new website at www.crashcam.co.uk.
