Minor Bumps and Scrapes Causes Major Headaches to Road Transport Operators

By [email protected] - 21st December 2016 - 10:41

Minor road collisions are costing HGV fleets many thousands of pounds because of the difficulty of proving liability and the high risk of fake personal injury claims. Video footage recorded by Intelligent Telematics’ IT1000 3G vehicle camera highlighted the difficulties faced by road transport operators recently when it captured the moment a car clips an HGV operated by retailer Poundworld. Such incidents are occurring across the UK, often resulting in fraudulent claims against HGVs and increased insurance costs to the companies involved. Insurance companies often settle in favour of the motorist, so Poundworld fitted Intelligent Telematics’ IT1000 3G vehicle cameras across a fleet of 48 HGVs to reduce insurance costs and increase road safety.
