Protecting your driver. Providing your witness
Incidents involving vehicles are time-consuming issues to resolve. A lack of solid evidence can often mean companies automatically accept liability, but easy settlements have led to an increase in cases against those operators – who quickly get known as a soft-target for further similar claims. False claims, crash-for-cash and shrinkage are now costing businesses millions each year. Add to this the issues of vandalism and attacks on drivers and the job of a transport manager becomes evermore difficult.

By capturing footage from vehicle-mounted cameras, Brigade’s Mobile Digital Recorder (MDR) offers the solution. It provides an accurate witness and gives irrefutable evidence in the case of an incident. Having recorded footage where there are conflicting reports of actual events or by being able to prove a staged accident, companies can make major cost savings whilst importantly support their drivers, who are often the subject of increased scrutiny after an incident.
