3G vehicle cameras are proving useful when challenging fraudulent insurance claims, according to Intelligent Telematics.
The company has released a number of videos to demonstrate how footage from its connected camera solutions helps companies guard against avoidable insurance costs with irrefutable proof.
One of the clips shows a SUV dangerously pulling out from a side road when obscured by a bus, forcing a van into a grass verge, narrowly missing a tree.
In a separate incident, a car drives head on into a van when driving on the wrong side of the road, overtaking parked vehicles.
Another shows a van being shunted from behind into the vehicle in front.
Intelligent Telematics’s director Sam Footer said: “Our cameras are capturing thousands of driving incidents every week, many of which are being used by our customers to determine liability within moments of them happening.
“Commercial vehicles can often be penalised unfairly when liability is disputed following a collision, or are simply victims of false allegations, so 3G cameras are the only way of having immediate access to video evidence and supporting data.”
“These videos highlight some of the collisions that are taking place every day on the road network, which is costing commercial fleet operators without 3G vehicle cameras many thousands of pounds in added insurance costs.
“Of course, there are those occasions when the van driver is at fault, so the devices also enable companies to streamline the claims process as well as support road safety training initiatives.”
