Motorists installing more and more cameras to combat crash for cash claims

Dash cams are very popular in Russia as YouTube has proven. Basically every vehicle has one and the reason is simple. To defend against against crash for cash claims.

The devices are becoming more popular also in UK and according to the Insurance Fraud Bureau estimates around 30,000 ‘crash for cash’ incidents take place every year, costing insurers around £350 million and pushing up premiums for honest, innocent drivers by around £44 each.

Dash-cams record the view through the windscreen and capture events before, during and after a collision.

The recorded footage can be used by defendants against accusations of lane-hogging or tailgating on motorways following new fixed penalty legislation which came into force in August.‎
