EyeDrive Systems becomes exclusive distribution partner of RoadHawk cameras

Vehicle safety solutions provider EyeDrive Systems has added another string to its bow by becoming the exclusive distribution partner of RoadHawk UK – the digital driver protection system.

The partnership will see EyeDrive Systems provide collision recording technology to its client base of commercial vehicle fleets.

“RoadHawk have chosen EyeDrive Systems to handle our UK distribution because of their established and excellent reputation within the commercial transport industry,” said Mark Nelson, founder of DCS Systems.

“The RoadHawk products fit nicely within their existing product range and their sales staff have superb knowledge in this area.

“After visiting EyeDrive’s premises and observing their operation, we feel they are in the best position to highlight the benefits of installing RoadHawk cameras, as well as being able to provide the highest quality after sales support and service.”

In the event of a non-fault accident, the RoadHawk product range, which includes the DC-1, RH-2 and RH-2 Professional vehicle camera systems, can provide the evidence required to exonerate a driver.

Unlike other vehicle camera systems, the DC-1 continually records video and GPS data on a loop onto a solid state SD memory card. A single memory card can hold several days’ worth of data that can be utilised in a court of law.

“RoadHawk cameras are an invaluable source of information when dealing with a claim,” said Helena Stubbs, claims liaison manager at Towergate Insurance – Motor Division.

“They help us to establish the circumstances, and in many cases, have helped clear clients’ drivers of responsibility for the accident.”

The above mentioned systems help negate ‘Crash for cash’ incidents, where fraudsters commit staged accidents to claim on other motorists’ insurance, which are at an all-time high.

The Insurance Fraud Bureau (IFB) estimates more than 30,000 accidents were staged last year, costing insurance companies around £350 million.

All of these costs are passed back to the policy holder, increasing their premiums on average by up to £44.00.
