Should You Use On-Board/In-Vehicle Cameras?

They're like an extra pair of eyes

On-board/in-vehicle cameras offer a comprehensive driver safety program for identifying, prioritizing, and correcting the causes of poor driving habits, before they lead to a collision. This "programmatic approach helps transportation companies transform their safety culture and ensures bottom-line results: preventing collisions, fraudulent claims, and saving lives. Most units have a continuous loop system.

When an event such as hard braking, striking highway buttons, rumble strips, or a crash occurs it retains eight seconds before and after the incident (these parameters can be adjusted). There is a manual button that will allow the drive to capture other needed information, such as an accident that occurred which they were not involved in. 

Camera use is not only a helpful tool for drivers and their companies, but also for us. Having an extra set of eyes out on the road for our Great West customers helps us get a better understanding of what may have happened in a semi-truck collision.
