CCTV Cameras for Vehicle Security

There are a lot of reasons to install CCTV cameras in your car. It could be that you are a proactive parent who wants to find out what their teenage child is up to whenever they are behind the wheel. Some may think it is an intrusion but it is only the act of a concerned parent.

On a serious note, there are countless events happen all the time that have you wishing you had recorded the incident. For instance, you could be driving down the road minding your roadside manners and obeying all the rules when out of nowhere comes a drunk driver that hits you and runs off. Amidst the confusion, you may fail to catch their registration numbers, and the CCTV cameras on the road could be broken. What are you going to do then?
Vandalism is a major issue for thousands of motorists. In the UK alone, there were 37,516 vehicle crimes in October 2016 and that is very high a number of incidents for only one month. Among these crimes, car vandalism reigned supreme. While some motorists eventually get their compensation for those crimes, the insurance cases take an extensive amount of time, which would be cut by half if they would be presented with evidence of the crime.
Fleet vehicles are another area of concern. As expected, these vehicles are not driven by their owners and fleet drivers tend to act recklessly when driving and even violate traffic rules that would eventually cause the company huge sums of money in traffic penalties.
Crash For Cash
There has also been a rising trend of intentional crashes against fleet vehicles. In some accidents, these unfortunate plans have been hatched with the cooperation of fleet drivers (rarely, though) where they would conspire with reckless drivers to feign a crash.
There are many other cases that happen without the drivers’ knowledge, their only fault being that they were driving vehicles bearing company logos, which is guaranteed to be insured. Naturally, fleet drivers put up a fight, defending their driving, but not as passionately as the owner of the car. When it looks as though they were at fault, they may decide to concede to lay the matter to rest, and let the insurance company take care of it.
As these ‘crash for cash’ incidences rise, insurance companies have become vigilant. According to the Insurance Fraud Bureau, these planned ‘accidents’ cause insurance companies $340 million per year. As a way to nip them in the bud, insurance companies are urging their clients to install CCTV cameras so that every reported crash is recorded.

How CCTV Surveillance Can Help
CCTV DVR recorders capture all the events happening within the range of its cameras, without arousing the interest of the person behind the wheel or on the road. In the case of crashes, you will have a full record of what happened to provide your insurance company or the police with irrefutable evidence.
Bottom Line
It always comes in handy in fleet management when you are able to see everything that is happening with your company cars knowing you will have the upper hand in the event of an incident. A 360-degree view inside a vehicle is possible using vehicle CCTV cameras to capture footage from all angles. Organisations, as well as governments, are taking this initiative seriously and taking costly steps towards curbing these nuisances. In due time, vandalism and ‘crashes for cash’ will be a thing of the past.
