DriveCam Video Systems Teams With National Interstate Co.

August 2, 2002

InvestiSan Diego-based DriveCam Video Systems has partnered with the National Interstate Insurance Co. to market DriveCam’s Driving Feedback System to insured passenger transportation fleets, including motorcoaches, transit buses, school buses and limousines.

Under the agreement, called the NIIC/DriveCam Certification Program, NIIC will reimburse up to 50 percent of the cost of the DriveCam system for each insured fleet that implements DriveCam. DriveCam’s Driving Feedback System incorporates video technology and management software to improve driving habits and reduce the frequency and severity of collisions. The NIIC/DriveCam Certification Program is subject to state regulatory review and approval.

DriveCam uses advanced video technology to record what drivers see and hear during unusual driving incidents. This allows fleet managers to counsel drivers on actual driving experiences. It also provides information critical to determining fault in an accident claim and speeds claim processing. Thousands of commercial vehicles, including utility fleets, passenger transportation, and service/delivery vans, are currently using DriveCam’s Driving Feedback System and have experienced reductions in the frequency and severity of collisions of 30 percent to 50 percent.

The complete Driving Feedback System includes the DriveCam video event data recorder, HindSight 20/20 software for managing and evaluating driving events, a manager’s guide, driver guide and instructional videotape. The DriveCam video recorder measures G-forces caused by activities such as hard braking, acceleration, harsh cornering or collisions, which trigger it to save a driving event for later viewing.
