Don't Worry, Drivers Won't Quit If You Install Inward Facing Cameras

Have you been considering driver-facing cameras for your fleet of vehicles? You might be wondering how receptive your drivers will be of this change. Implementing AI-powered driver-facing cameras can actually provide several benefits; helping your drivers to see these benefits will go a long way. Let's discuss just a few:

  • Drivers understand the need for safety

The trucking industry is currently facing a major shift in public perception, with more and more nuclear verdicts being delivered in court and constant news coverage of tragic truck accidents. This has led to a greater need for safety precautions that can help reduce risk and protect both the public and professional drivers. One of these safety measures is the use of driver-facing cameras, which are installed in trucks to monitor and record the driving habits of the driver. By using driver-facing cameras, trucking companies can ensure that their drivers are following all relevant safety protocols and take steps to improve any issues that arise.

  • Cameras help improve driving habits

AI dash cameras can be an effective way to reduce negative driving behaviors in your fleet. These cameras use g-force triggers and AI video analysis to track drivers' behavior while they're on the road. The data collected by these cameras can be used to analyze how drivers are performing, such as their speed, braking habits, and more. With this data, fleets can monitor and identify areas of improvement, helping them to make adjustments where necessary to reduce the likelihood of accidents occurring. The results are clear: fleets that install these cameras see a significant reduction in negative driving behaviors, sometimes as much as 80% in 4 weeks.

  • Drivers appreciate the transparency

Fleet management with dash cams is becoming an increasingly popular way to ensure the safety of drivers and protect the company’s bottom line. Trucking GPS tracking combined with inward-facing dash cams provides a more comprehensive view of driving performance, which not only helps you keep an eye on the driver’s safety but also helps you protect your company against liability in the event of an accident.

Being transparent with your drivers will better help them to understand the benefits of having driver-facing cameras installed in their vehicles. Many cameras are equipped with a privacy mode, which disables the inward-facing camera while the vehicle is not moving. This allows drivers to feel secure in their space and reassured that their privacy is respected. Additionally, many cameras notify the driver when they are being livestreamed. Drivers feel safer knowing that there is an extra layer of protection.

  • Cameras provide evidence in the event of an accident

No one wants to be involved in an accident, but unfortunately, they do occur. Dash cams may be the only way to exonerate a driver in such a situation. Driver-facing cameras provide the footage needed to review an accident. When incidents arise, you will have the evidence required to protect yourself and your drivers. Fleet management with dash cams provides protection for both parties in the event of an accident, so you can remain profitable without sacrificing safety.
