Benefits of Using a Dashcam
- Protection If You are Sued: It is a fact of life that truckers are sometimes blamed for accidents they didn’t cause. A dashcam video is an unblinking eye that can provide evidence that the other driver was at fault and exonerate you. Dashcam video evidence can lead to faster settlement, lower legal expenses and less time away from work. Without it, we must rely on witnesses whose memories aren’t always reliable, or can’t be found, or may not even exist. A dashcam is your own personal expert witness.
- Promote Safety and Accountability: If you have employee drivers or owner-operators, dashcams can be an important part of your safety program. By analyzing accidents, near misses and other events captured on video, you can coach your drivers to help them become safer and more successful. Dashcams can also provide opportunities for recognizing and rewarding good habits and improve driver retention. With consistent use, you may improve your CSA score and promote a culture of safety in your company.
