SmartDrive in-cab video launch at Brake fleet safety conference

The annual Fleet Safety Forum conference takes place on 3 March 2011 at the National Motor Cycle Museum, Birmingham, UK, and gives fleet managers the opportunity to hear detailed case studies from fleet safety managers and suppliers who have won Fleet Safety Forum Awards for best practice.

Visitors to the SmartDrive stand will learn how in-cab video safety systems are proving essential to driver and vehicle safety on the UK’s busy roads. The system makes it easy for companies to improve driving behaviour and eliminate noncompliance and risks such as smoking, eating, using handheld mobile phones and non-use of seatbelts.

SmartDrive is also working with customers to help prevent their commercial vehicle drivers from being targeted by criminals who deliberately cause collisions. This so-called crash for cash is used by fraudsters to make illegal claims against companies for personal injuries and vehicle damage. This is not only dangerous but is pushing up the cost of motor insurance. SmartDrive technology is helping to contest such claims successfully and bring the fraudsters to justice.
