In-car cameras could become compulsory

RAC, who carried out the study, said that 71% believe that in-car cameras would help cut the number of fraudulent car insurance claims from staged car collisions. 

 
Millions of pounds have been lost in the insurance industry, because of car insurance scams. 
 
The significant rise in ‘crash for cash’ scams has promoted UK motorists to take action into their own hands, with 39% of respondents considering fitting a camera to their vehicle’s dashboard. 
 
The study also found that 4% of people already have a camera fitted in their car, with 21% saying they had one to avoid becoming a victim of the ‘crash for cash’ scam. 
 
Head of external affairs at RAC, Pete Williams said: “Accident cameras or in-car cameras are commonplace in some countries where unscrupulous driving practices are a more regular occurrence. 
 
“With ‘crash for cash’ crimes unfortunately becoming more prevalent in the UK roads, motorists are looking to in-car cameras to protect themselves from being taken advantage of.”
 
Furthermore to the research, 72% said they would consider fitting an in-car camera if it reduces their car insurance premiums. 
 
70% also said that they believe in-car cameras would help reduce the overall number of fraudulent car insurance claims being made.
