Just as your mobile phone has changed radically over the last few years, so too have the possibilities of understanding how car accidents get recorded. And below, you see the state of the art equipment that’s changing driving forever.
When something bumps, crashes or brakes hard
If you imagine that around 30% of accidents are contested, (in other words, driver A says x happened and driver B says y happened) you can see how premiums get unnecessarily expensive. Disagreement between the parties can cause a lot of extra expense as A and B’s lawyers get wealthy on the dispute. And all of this adds to the bill of the careful driver. But with telematics and the R.I.D.E system it’s all very different. The camera switches on when something bumps crashes or brakes hard. And your forward looking video means there’s suddenly very little to argue about.
At the foundation of our fleet policy is our Realtime Incident and Driver Evaluation unite (R.I.D.E).
It looks at the strength of acceleration, and braking and analyses these over a period of time. So you can actually use it to improve your driving style, by increasing the level of anticipation. For fleet managers this is a godsend.
