Latest camera footage exonerates van drivers
Intelligent Telematics has released a number of recent videos to demonstrate how footage from its connected camera solutions is helping companies defend against claims and help prove liability.
The clips include footage of a van being forced onto a grass verge, narrowly missing a tree, after an SUV pulled out from a side road when obscured by a bus. Had the van not taken evasive action and instead struck the SUV from behind, it is likely to have been liable for the collision, without the aid of event footage to prove their innocence.
Other footage shows a van being driven at head-on by a car on the wrong side of the road, while another clip shows a van being shunted from behind and into the vehicle in front.
Sam Footer, Director of Intelligent Telematics, said: “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 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.”
