A 17 year old driver has saved more than £300 on his car insurance after fitting an in-car camera system.
The tennager from Hatfield in Hertfordshire, who fitted the ipix X100FHD camera to his mini CIty saved £340 thanks to a 15 per cent discount provided by specialist broker Adrian Flux Insurance Services.
An increasing number of motorists are fitting the small, screen/dash mounted cameras, which are playing a leading role in helping to cut fraudulent claims like ‘crash for cash’ scams. The cameras also help insurers and motorists identify who is at fault in an accident, potentially helping to protect drivers’ no claims bonus where there is a dispute about who is to blame.
In this case, it is easy to see how a driver can easily cover the cost of the device of the camera in the first year whilst making significant savings each year thereafter. That is obviously in addition to the other benefits fitting an in-car camera can bring to motorists, such as fighting off fraudulent claims and helping to identify when they are not at fault in an accident.
