Milestone Insurance Consultants, a specialist insurance provider of Chauffeur, Private Hire and Taxi fleets have seen an increase in the number of enquiries regarding their bespoke insurance policy with vehicle cameras included.
Milestone’s Managing Director, Scott Mourton, commented, “Since the airing of Car Crash Britain on ITV three weeks ago, we’ve noticed a heightened interest in our bespoke vehicle camera insurance policy from fleet owners.
Car Crash Britain utilised the growing popularity of cameras mounted on bike helmets and drivers’ dashboards to show footage of incidents on Britain’s roads. I believe this has prompted many viewers to discover the importance of vehicle cameras in safeguarding their insurance premiums and protecting them from fraudulent insurance claims.”
Among the footage, Car Crash Britain showed the disturbing results of insurance scams like Crash for Cash. These swindles cost honest drivers nearly £400 million every single year.
Scott continued, “These scams are a particular problem for clients in the taxi industry, hence why I believe we have suddenly seen a surge in requests for vehicle cameras. If you have a vehicle camera and you’re involved in an incident, the footage can be invaluable either to defend the claim or to settle the claim quickly and efficiently, reducing the overall cost. It can also provide crucial evidence in court.”
Milestone have been working with leading vehicle camera companies for over three years, ensuring that they can chose the right technology suited to their clients’ needs.
