Many Fleet Managers have already realized the importance of dashboard cameras. In fact, the National Transportation Safety Board recommends them, and they may soon be required by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration!

When these dash cams are paired with a feature-packed platform such as that of CallPass’s LANA Fleet platform, you gain optimal protection and security when it comes to managing your fleet of vehicles. Below, you will find the top 5 biggest reasons we have learned that fleets need dash cameras to operate a more secure and efficient fleet.

1. Accidents & Negligent Drivers

It’s common for those involved in an accident and nearby witnesses to be emotional after the incident due to the rush of adrenaline they are experiencing. However, this can make it difficult to remember exactly what happened, and can lead to false accusations.

Having video evidence of the accident can not only help to jog memories, but it can also help to prove some witness statements incorrect, therefore relieving drivers of the responsibility. This helps maintain accurate driver records and avoid unnecessary insurance claims.

2. Employee and Insurance Fraud

When a motorist slams on their brakes in front of a commercial vehicle, causing an accident, it is often done on purpose to collect insurance money. When the accident is arranged with the help of an employee, it can be even more devastating. With a dashboard camera, you have video evidence to prove if the collision was accidental, or on purpose (and if they were smart – prevent them forever attempting) This saves you time and money when dealing with insurance companies and lawyers.

3. Insurance Claims and Premium Savings

Having to make an insurance claim is never fun, but it can be much faster and easier with a dash camera. The footage provides an accurate depiction of what happened to cause the claim. This helps remove any doubt about the accident and get claims approved more quickly.

Thanks to the accuracy of claims with dashboard camera footage, some insurance companies are also offering discounts or lower premiums to those who have dash cameras installed. Although these rates will vary, the average savings is around 10% per term!
