Motorcoach dash cameras and video event recorders have been proven to reduce accidents by over 50 percent. Creating more vigilant and aware drivers. Video event recorders and dash cameras help managers see areas where drivers need to improve and videos to help train drivers. It also lets companies see who their top drivers are and which drivers save the company money.

Driver & Passenger Safety and Security

Transportation companies are responsible for getting passenger to their destination safely. There is a lot of risk involved with people moving. Having cameras installed in vehicles discourages crime. When people know that they are being recorded they are less likely to commit crimes. This provides better security for drivers and a safer ride for passengers.

Fleet Driver Training

Companies are monitoring drivers to make sure they are driving how they were trained. Managers are finding that having cameras in motorcoaches is one of the best ways to discourage bad driving habits. It allows managers to use driver videos to train and improve driving skills.
