Trakm8, the market leading fleet management solutions provider, believe that Dashcams will play a fundamental part in tackling insurance fraud in future.
In last weeks Autumn statement, Chancellor George Osbourne outlined the governments plans to tackle the problem which has blighted the motor and insurance industry for years.
The Insurance Fraud Bureau suggested last week that ‘cash-for-crash’ style fraud is worth a total of £336million.
John Watkins, executive chairman at the Trakm8 Group, said: “Motor insurance fraud has become commonplace in British society – almost to a level where it is the norm for certain individuals to exploit loopholes open to them just ‘because they can’. The Conservative’s pledge to tackle this issue head on, I’m sure, will be welcomed wholeheartedly by the majority of this country’s responsible drivers who see the cost of fraud reflected in their monthly premiums.
Dashcam evidence offers insurers a missing piece of the puzzle when identifying fault, especially in crash for cash schemes. I have no doubt that this growing technology will be fundamental in helping the government to finally banish this shameful claims culture.”
