San Diego-based DriveCam Video Systems, an innovator in vehicle safety and protection, announced that Lancer Insurance, a specialty insurer of passenger transportation vehicles, has recommended DriveCam to its customers representing approximately 50,000 vehicles nationwide. The company stated that DriveCam and the Driving Feedback System clearly produces safety, loss prevention and cost savings benefits that are unmatched by other products.
DriveCam uses advanced video technology to record what drivers see and hear during unusual driving incidents. G-forces caused by activities such as hard braking, acceleration, harsh cornering or collisions trigger DriveCam to save a driving event for later viewing. As part of a complete Driving Feedback System, it is used by commercial fleets to monitor, track and improve driving performance. DriveCam’s digital recording allows fleet managers to easily view an event on a TV, camcorder or personal computer.
In addition to lowering operating expenses, DriveCam is also useful in uncovering insurance fraud. Music Express, a limousine service insured by Lancer, recently used a DriveCam recording to uncover a staged accident.
According to the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB), fraud rings specifically target commercial vehicles such as taxis, limousines, rental cars and commercial trucks.
DriveCam is sold as part of the complete Driving Feedback System that helps fleets monitor, track and improve driving performance. The program includes a manager’s guide, driver guide, instructional videotape and Event Manager software for logging and tracking vehicle events.
