According to the National Transportation Safety Board, fleets and towing businesses should consider installing a video monitoring system in their trucks. By doing so companies can protect their drivers against fraudulent claims and improve their driving skills.
Dash cams have become an essential device in both the trucking and towing world. As you know, operating a heavy-duty vehicle requires a lot of skill and there are a lot of risks involved. In fact, tow truck accidents can be very costly. This is where dash cams would prove to be very beneficial.
Dash cams give you the ability to monitor your surroundings and refer back when necessary. For example, say you’re parked and go inside for a snack, and when you come back out someone backed up into your tow truck. Without the help of a dash cam, you wouldn’t know who did it or have any proof. Therefore, you could be left footing your own repair bill!
The point is, dash cams can help towing companies save a significant amount of money. Then this money could be used towards improving fleet performance and safety.
In this article, we’ll discuss the many benefits of using a dash cam for tow trucks.
