Kodak kit to make world debut at NEC

THE world launch of Kodak's 'eye WITNESS' accident recording kit will take place at the 1999 Fleet Show at the NEC, Birmingham, from April 27-29. The pocket-sized kit contains a disposable 27-exposure camera, processing return envelope, pen, accident form, two safety reflective armbands, driver details card, and instruction details.

It also includes intangible elements such as a free legal consultation with Motor Accident Solicitors Society, and Kodak is in negotiations with a breakdown and recovery operator and credit hire firm to provide extra peace of mind for accident victims. The accident recording kit has been designed specifically for the 360,000 minor accidents every year which the police do not attend.

Kodak claims 'eye WITNESS' will make accident recording easier, thereby helping fleets with claims - photos can be admissible in court - and cites endorsements from the Driving Standards Agency, BRAKE, and the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents. The company plans to role out 'eye WITNESS' throughout Europe, North America, Australia, South Africa and New Zealand, following its launch at the Fleet Show.
