Tools and plant hire firm Speedy Asset Services has installed Visiontrack cameras on 50 recently acquired vans.
The hire firm is adopting video telematics technology as standard on all new vehicles as part of a commitment to road safety and fleet risk reduction.
It has installed VT2000 connected forward-facing cameras on the vans, having previously fitted Visiontrack products to HGVs.
The system provides real-time alerts in the event of a collision and access to footage, so Speedy Asset Services can immediately check on the welfare of its driver and prove liability in less than 30 minutes.
Speedy Asset Services road risk manager Gareth Jones said: “As one of the first fleets in the UK to achieve DVSA earned recognition we have demonstrated our commitment to keeping our people, customers and members of public safe by meeting all driver and vehicle standards.
“As part of this, we understood the need for an advanced and scalable video telematics system that safeguards drivers, prevents road collisions and mitigates fleet risk.
“The connected vehicle cameras will help target further improvements as part of our award-winning fleet safety strategy that has already reduced road collisions by 37%, while also enabling us to avoid unnecessary insurance costs.”
