RoadHawk to provide in-vehicle cameras to KGM insurance policyholders

RoadHawk has formed a partnership with KGM insurance to provide in-vehicle camera technology to the specialist insurer’s taxi and private hire policyholders.

With nearly 35% of road traffic incidents involving at-work drivers and the increasing cost of claims, KGM wanted an improved method of protecting its insured drivers from potential fraud and non-fault blame, while also being able to speed up claims resolution times. 

This is particularly prevalent in the taxi and private hire sector where vehicles can be on the road for more than 10 hours per day.

RoadHawk’s managing director, Mark Nelson said: “Very often in a road traffic collision, witness statements and a driver’s version of events can be misleading, often meaning an insurer has a difficult time settling the claim efficiently.

"Our systems offer a true version of events, protecting the professional driver. With our system, KGM will be able to defend claims against its insured drivers and offer an improved claims management service”.

    Every vehicle whether business or private should have a camera fitted. It would also assist in the prevention of RTC's and reduce the number of KSI's
